Are you living antagonistically to your conscience

"And this is the only explanation of the dreadful intensity with which men of modern times strive to stupefy themselves, with spirits, tobacco, opium, cards, reading newspapers, traveling, and all kinds of spectacles and amusements. These pursuits are followed up as an important, serious business, And indeed they are a serious business. If there were no external means of dulling their sensibilities, half of mankind would shoot themselves without delay, for to live in opposition to one's reason is the most intolerable condition. And that is the condition of all men of the present day. All men of the modern would exist in a state of continual and flagrant antagonism between their conscience and their way of life. This antagonism is apparent in economic as well as political life. But most striking of all is the contradiction between the Christian law of brotherhood of men existing in the conscience and the necessity under which all men are placed by compulsory military service of being prepared for hatred and murder – of being at the same time Christian and a gladiator" – Leo Tolstoy

I think that may be the most important thing in life. To transform ones' life to fit their conscience. That is freedom.

I'm not doing so bad. Although I am simply an exploitable tool for my capitalist master many hours a week. I don't know if going to non-profit will change that but it feels like I must at least try.

Although I didn't really want this thread to turn into a thread about non-profits.

There is life and then there is ones' conscience. That is pretty fucking heavy. I make peasant food for people at reasonable pricing. Here I go making it about me again. I don't know I think I've done a reasonable job transforming my life to be in line with my conscience but have to continue working at it. "The lacked" would be Jesus Christ most likely. I don't know if I am ready to die for all of these fuckers sins. I mean I am supposed to love my brothers and sisters but it's kind of hard when you are sitting in traffic for 30 min. and some fucker cuts you off. But structurally it makes sense to love everyone. To dislike the structures rather than any individual. I don't know. I am going through some transformations and I am finding solace in Christ. It feels weird for me because it still seems like there are so many contradictions but if I just focus on Tolstoy's writings it seems to make sense.

It seems to be not very profitable in the long run to play those kind of hands. - Gus Hansen

I can honestly say I am not and that it would take A LOT for me to do so.

Far worse things than than slaving away for profiteering masters within the broken system we were born into and forced to participate in without any real consent.

"A LOT"?

What life could possibly be worth living outside of your conscience?
