Unconditional Obedience Betrays Human Nature

in #obedience2 months ago (edited)

Can obedience ever be used as an instrument of good? Is it always bad? Obedience is defined as obeying without thought or question. It is supplanting one’s faculties of reason and logic for that of another. It is prostrating oneself before the will of another. The moment one disobeys an order from authority based on a moral or logical dilemma the trance is broken. This represents the quintessence of what it means to be human. Human beings are unique in the animal kingdom in that we have a prefrontal cortex of the brain that allows for complex cognitive behavior, problem solving, logic, reasoning, and decision making. We are born to be independent and unique beings.

True unconditional obedience is one of the most destructive forces the world has ever seen. It turns free thinking independent human beings into mindless automatons. These automatons are very useful to rulers as tools to carry to fruition, without question, their wickedness. Without a legion of obedient followers at their beck and call, the evils of the State could never have been realized. Unflinching obedience is the foundation that forms the linchpin to any expanding imperialistic Nation State. Break the obedient trance of the State enforcers and you will cripple the might of any speciously invincible nation State.

“Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves.” Henry David Thoreau
