Spock’s Illogic: “The Needs of the Many Outweigh the Needs of the Few”
Spock's logic can easily be used when thinking just about anything today. Reason (logic) has been used and debated as a more powerful tool than emotions or one's own personal free will.
I, personally, don’t think that way, and sometimes when I ask myself what many others don’t question reason or logic as more powerful and persuading a tool I honestly only come up with one answer, as an individual they just don’t want to bother to think, they would rather have another do their thinking for them.
I believe that there needs to be a balance between the two, if there is not, the individual, the self, the soul, one’s spirit gets lost and one could easily go through life never really living. I came to the conclusion a long time ago that if I did not know myself then there was/is no way for me to help others to help themselves.
Over the years this realization smacked me in the face many times, when I am trying to please another and inside I am arguing with myself, "Just don’t make waves, move on, it doesn’t matter, your opinion."
And that is true, but to me it does matter. If I am to be honest with myself, and in turn be honest with another than it does matter. If I am going to thrive and grow in my own natural way then I need to value myself – I know of no other way.
So, if there is a balance between reason and my uniqueness, my individuality, if I am to honor myself as well as my spirit and soul, then I need to have values that allow me to do that. One of those values is free will and my own volatility, then I am able to live my life to its fullest in the pursuit of happiness and the happiness of others. If we all did that, then we would not need to weigh the needs of the many for the needs of the few. If we all realized that the balance between the two is important – without that balance the scale is uneven, no equal.
