What makes philosophy interesting is the arguments and theses defended by philosophers in various domains of research interest. However, what remains as a puzzle at times is whether those brilliant and influential ideas defended by these thinkers can be understood by everybody.
being a good person is not about virtue signalling because when we spent time telling people what is right and doing nothing to examine ourselves there is a possibility to even become worse. Bad habits are not natural. They are cultivated, and the good news is that they can be replaced if the individuals subject to, become conscious and willing to work out for good ones.
Is it not time for someone to say this have to come to an end? anyone that claims to be a patriotic America and stand against guns control at this crucial moment contradicts the very patriotism he claims stand for. It is but logical that those who argue against gun control have a selfish agenda which is known only to them.

We need to work hard if we want to remain at the top; grow above midiocracy; and if we want to distinguish ourselves. Often times we hear people say that some people are just lucky; which to them being lucky means “succeeding by chance” and this entails why many people in this generation has surrender everything to chance. they don’t believe that hard works pays off in the long-run; they make no efforts about anything.
Human life is not perfect and so needs constant improvement. Just like a farm that is cultivated, individuals invest so much time on personal development and empowerment programs.
