First Jacksonville, then the WORLD

I’m going to save the world. One day at a time. One person at a time. One conversation at a time. One class at a time. Anyone can help. Here’s all you have to do: Stop being MORALLY GRAY.

If you haven’t read “The Virtue of Selfishness” by Ayn Rand, then get on it. It’s short, and it will get you started. Anyways, cut it out. Define your beliefs and priciples in a clear, objective way, and embrace NO CONTRADICTION WHATSOEVER. You can’t compromise between food and poison, and you can’t comromise between good and evil. Either you believe in something, and you stand for it, and you LIVE BY IT, OR YOU DON’T. It’s really exactly like that. Once you decide to live your life by integrating your own, rational thoughts, it’s a no brainer: you will always eat right, you will always treat other people right, you’ll actually do the things you want to do. You’ll do this because you understand that IF YOU DON’T LIVE YOUR LIFE THE WAY THAT YOU THINK ABOUT IT, EITHER THE WAY YOU THINK IS SH*T, IF NOT, THEN YOUR LIFE IS, IF NOT BOTH.

How did that feel? I hear all of you, EVERYDAY.
“I’m so sick of DJ X at club X.”
“I hate the way the guy I’m dating treats me.”
“I hate the way my hair looks.”
“I hate my job.”
“I’m tired of getting my ass kicked everyday.”
“I can’t believe what the president did this time.”

Okay then. Guess what. It’s time for all of this sh*t to stop. It starts with you. You hate liars? Quit lying to people, and quit hanging out with liars. Hate cheaters? Quit dating them. Hate your job? Quit, or start your own business. Hate certain clubs or deejays? Stop going there and support what you do like. Let me give you a step-by-step idea:

1. Really take the time to think about what it is you truly believe in.
2. Having done that, integrate those beliefs in your life in a CONCRETE WAY, WITH CONCRETE ACTIONS. No abstractions at all.
3. Support things that are in line with what you believe. Go out of your way to do this. Create them if you have to.
4. Give no support or sanction AT ALL of anything that is contrary to your beliefs. Do nothing to encourage or appease evil. This is really important. As soon as you make that “tiny” allowance for evil, for WHAT YOU KNOW YOU DON’T AND CAN’T STAND FOR, look what you have done. Look at what you ENCOURAGE, and look at what you DISCOURAGE.

We can save Jacksonville, and we can save the world. It has to be ever vigilant. If you don’t believe me – watch.
