    The four beasts of Daniel




    Daniel 7
    2 Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.
    3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.
    4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.
    5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.
    6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.
    7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it stamped with the feet of it, brake in pieces, and devoured the dung: and it was different from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

    There is no such thing as moral or immoral behavior. Only civilized and uncivilized behavior. Civilized laws are laws that do not give any one person or any one group of people any special rights above what all others have. The more a society treats everyone as equals the more civilized it is.

    Gen 2:16-17

    King James Version

    16 And the Lord God commanded the Adam (undomesticated), saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:

    17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good pain, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.



    How do we turn irresponsible kids into responsible adults and how should society deal with irresponsible young adults that keep breaking the law. The politically correct thing is to be "hard on crime". But there is a better more humane and more effective way.

    Irresponsible young adults lack a healthy respect for laws (both physical and social). Teaching them this respect requires subjecting them to a certain amount of pain. This is unavoidable.

    But there is good pain and there is bad pain. There is pain that people hate and there is pain that people enjoy. Good pain is exhilarating. Bad pain is terrifying. (The difference is not intensity.) If one can discipline people using only good pain then why not do it that way?

    (This is why the military marches troops in training for miles and miles as "punishment" for breaking the rules. But it only works for those that enjoy jogging. Not everyone does.)

    I'm sure the Mad Hatter could provide an explanation, if he has the time.....

    Mockery and ridicule is the last resort of the desperate

    Translation: I don't know what you are saying so therefore you must be stupid

    I can think of one other possibility
