Doing favors to “your own people”

3 posts in this topic

I noticed that I have some guilt feeling when I do this but as we know from spiral dynamics it is just a stage. We can’t deny there are countries and interests of a country just like there is interest of ourselves as an individual. Should I feel guilty or no? Or am I just reading to deep into spiral dynamics and I shouldn’t be so stuck up and overanalyzing myself?

Only issue, is when it becomes political, zero-sum. Which is virtually everything.

"For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?"

What did you read into, specifically?


Of Interest: Aristotle(Teleology), Carl Jung, Christopher Langan(Holo-pantheism),  William James (Pragmatism).

Evil "Caesar's Wife must be above suspicion".: Plato (Ideal forms), John Stuart Mill (Anti-teleos Utilitarianism), Leibniz (Trinitarianism), Spinoza(Pantheism) Buddhism(Paradox), Jainism?(Hysteria), Nietzsche (Perspectivism) William James (Pragmatism).

@StarStruck  I don't really understand your question, but there is nothing such as your people, that is an attachment which causes suffering. But of course you can contribute your country and society as a whole by elevating its consciousness or creating a better environment for self-realization :) No need to be guilty about that.
