If you think about it more deeply, survival is more of man-made concept. In society which is a structure that is a man-made idea, you work and get paid. You go to school and compete against millions of others to "excel" to the top of the social ladder. As you know, everyone will not make it to the top of that "ladder". "Survival of the fittest". However there was a time when things like material possession such as money was not needed and people got a long nicely and worked together. In today's time, people are too immature and independent to ever want to make a change like that again. Money serves as a means of control to the masses, a lot of good and evil can come from it. Then again, it is just a piece of paper. My point to this is, materialistic things that we put a value on obviously isn't some thing we "naturally" hold value to.
Well, I don't have faith in a book. The bible along with many other religious scriptures teaches morality, and that is fine. However, words do change in time. I do have faith in God and Jesus Christ. God is all good and expects us to live by his law, I will try my best to do that as possible. It's hard being human, but that is the fun part. Many people of course will throw their faith away, but for those who do hold onto it and that believe in the lord; not to come off arrogant, but we must surely be better in the lords eyes then. To add as well, that is very unique to find in this society today people who are compassionate about God, but at the same time respectful on how they go about to display their love.
What society deems is all right, may not be ok in God eyes. The moral fabric of society is flailing away. It's ok to get a job as a stripper, pornographic actor/actress, prostitute and lewd jobs such as that. Being a stripper is not as bad as those other "career" choices I have mentioned, but if human beings have such great potential to become some thing better by using your brain (i.e. teacher, biologist, priest, store clerk, computer engineer, etc.) or even talents such as your brawn (construction worker, boxer, mixed martial artist), why lower your standards? There are several reasons for these choices. 1.) the individual feels that they have run out of options and will take the easiest opportunity that comes there way. 2.) Since society as a structure is based off of survival of the fittest, obviously everyone can not be successful. 3.) It's rather up to the individual how far they wish to go in life in regards to fulfilling their "potential" in life. Society is just like a sport, it competitve 24/7, to win to survive. Then again, depending on the career you do choice, you don't have to neccessarily have to "step on a few toes" to make it such as being a teacher, anthropologist, writer to name a few.
In certain parts of the world, prostitution is legal such as Saipan and Hong Kong. If they were to legalize it in North America, would it make it ok to choice that type of "career"? What type of message would that send to the youth of the next generation? Once again, if prostitution was legalize, this opens more of an avenue to those who are looking to make easy cash. Who needs school then? Perhaps if it was legalized, it would probably be in a more control environment (that being of government control), health plan would be great ( I suppose) and this would stop the flow of human trafficking that is plaguing Europe and Asian. Then again, if Alcohol at one time was illegal to consume and is known to be bad for your health; these days it's ok to drink as long as it is done in moderation. But what if some one came up with an alcohol alternative that would get you drunk quicker by injecting the alcohol into your rectum or in the veins like some heroine addict would. Lets say that this new fad was favored by those who loved drinking, but it wasn't favored and legal in the eyes of the government and Alcohol industry. Would this then be an ethical issue or the fear of losing out of "the big bucks"? Probably both. Of course as you know, the alcohol companies would have a fit about that, all because they are losing their profits. My point to all this is, if prostitution was made legal, that would not stop the flow of human trafficking. In any business, I think people would want more control of their business than allowing the government to intervene on it. I think I said enough for now on this issue. lol
