I believe parents, schools and society in general should teach children about the destructive nature of ill-chosen habits.
We build bigger hospitals, rehabilitation centers and prisons to service people who embrace destructive addictive habits that take over their lives.
Our children need to grow up knowing the truth about the importance of habit choices.
In the beginning, we do individually (and copycat collectively) choose the habits we live with.
The story of Pinocchio is a classic example of what happens when we choose the wrong example to follow to get to “Pleasure Island.” Like Pinocchio and Lampwick, they do not know that it is a dead-end street to addiction and a ruined life.
Destructive use of sexual practices, drugs, food, fire, and more happens because of addiction to physical or psychological urges. If we do not take control of natural urges, they will take control of us.
In my opinion, most who claim to be homosexual are addicted to the “high” they achieve by artificial (any and all) means. The one they call “partner” is the enabler who puts a stamp of approval on their ill-chosen habits.
A person addicted to drugs, sexual practices, alcohol, it seeks a partner so they can use the kindergarten mentality that excuses all by saying “He/she’s doing it.”
I have lost people I care about to addictions. I’ve faced this truth. When I see the long line in front of Last Place on Earth, I see Pinocchio, Lampwick and loved ones.
We need to accept responsibility to individually, and collectively, set good examples of choice and honorable actions for upcoming generations.
Too many of our highest leaders of the nation feel no responsibility to make honorable choices.
News and TV glorify their actions in the press, entertainment gossip and comedy sketches. Bad ideas.
Our lawmakers are pressured to legalize destructive practices. Of course, if we legalize everything and do as we individually choose without consideration of honor or health; we could dispense with the costs of police, courts, prisons.Is this progress and to what? Food, drugs, sexual powers, fire, water — everything in our universe and beyond is a blessing. We need to teach our children that a blessing ill-used becomes a curse.
