“A delusion is a belief held with strong conviction despite superior evidence to the contrary.”………
As human species, some people have difficulty reconciling the “reality” that “humans” are part of “nature”, including a “reptilian brain” passed on from the “Dinosaurs era”……..
It would be much “nicer” if fiction matched reality, such as in Walt Disney’s fairy tales, “Bambi”, “Simba”, etc…..
But, the “combat” “survival instinct”, totally, contradicts any attempt at imposing a “law” on “War”, “intelligence interrogations”, including any form of “torture” when the issue remains “kill or be killed”…
Most of the West adversaries who, “never forgive and never forget”, consequently, “never integrate” in “any””peaceful solutions” because they believe in their own “delusional fairy tales” where they are the “vengeful winners conquerors” and they can do whatever they want without retaliation from others, refusing any kind of compromise when they ask “total annihilation” of their adversaries……..
In face of such situations, most often, the only possible response is, first, “run away”, then, second, if the assaults persist, “shoot the aggressor”, third, “eradicate the roots of the aggression” by “any means necessary”……..
“By any means necessary” including “enhanced interrogation techniques”, is a result of the “reptilian brain” action of the aggressors countered by the “reptilian brain” of the defenders; no more, no less…….
“The reptilian complex, also known as the R-complex or “reptilian brain” was the name MacLean gave to the basal ganglia, structures derived from the floor of the forebrain during development. The term derives from the fact that comparative neuroanatomists once believed that the forebrains of reptiles and birds were dominated by these structures. MacLean proposed that the reptilian complex was responsible for species-typical instinctual behaviors involved in aggression, dominance, territoriality, and ritual displays.”
At no time “morality” has a way to figure out right from wrong in these transactions at the “basic survival instinct” level, period…….
If it was possible, and, unfortunately, it is NOT, following the Laws of Nature; the only way to avoid “torture” issues would be to never start a “War”,,,,,,,
Talk about being “delusional” with all these “reptilian brains” running around loose…….
Looks like we have a perennial “Jurassic Park” on our hands, without the “humanization” of the “Dinosaurs”, since the “humans” used to be “Dinosaurs”, and, in many ways, unfortunately for the “Peace and Morality Lovers”, still are………
