Daily Prompt: Instinct or Wisdom?

Humans are another form of animal life on this planet.  The deadliest form and yet many of us appear to lack the basic instinct to get along with our fellow-man.  When I was younger I was fascinated with ESP and studied it due to my own random psychic powers.  I began wondering if this was really ESP or just the same normal animal instinct given all the species and what is “instinct” really?

It’s that innate ability to know what you need to know to survive and yes it does seem a little “extra-sensory” if you don’t acknowledge that all animals possess this skill and we are indeed animals.  There is a fabulous book out called “The Gift of Fear And Other Survival Signals That Protect Us From Violence” by Gavin De Becker.  The obvious problem with man is that there are just too many distractions as well as bad advice from so-called “experts” that are allowed to voice this bad advice to others on a wide scale.  This is another way that liberals have destroyed our society and made everyone much less safe by making you second guess yourself.  Don’t ever do that.  According to pop-culture suggestions, we are supposed to ignore our own personal prejudices or feelings and just dive into bad situations head first so we don’t look like a hater.  Sometimes you need to hate or at least be suspicious.

Don’t misunderstand.  There is never an excuse for being mean or unfair to any other human being whether you agree with them or not.  Unless they are endangering you or your loved ones.  Even those that threaten your way of life with promoting their way of life is not imminent danger and not grounds to overreact with violence on your part, as you hear of some doing.  It’s not prejudice to be afraid of a group of young men that you don’t know, black or white, that suddenly approach you no matter what your color, but if you go according to some, you are a bad person if you feel this way if they are a different race than you.  The fact is anyone that approaches you no matter their sex, nationality or age should concern you right off, depending on where you are and the situation.  Even those offering you much needed assistance.

Most people are not that friendly or generous unless they want something in return although you know there are those rare exceptions and we call them heroes.  Those that would risk their own lives to help others without anything in return.  Most people kind of suck when it comes to getting involved and many that pretend to help have ulterior motives.  Sometimes you can feel it, that something’s not right and if you lack this discerning instinct it just might cost you your life.
