Influenced Minds

We might escape, as people, our major, macro, beliefs… but can any escape influence? The accumulation can be seen and dismantled, somewhat, to some degree… but how would we ever know what influence we’re under?

How could we know what might be directing us?

Do we think that it’s preferable that we survive, as a species?
Why do we then not eat the inferior among us? Wouldn’t that best insure survival?

We’ve probably developed instincts over time… Depending on who made us and where they came from, our instincts might be their instincts.

With no moral or ethical instincts, notions, ideas or feelings… what would we decide for ourselves about what’s best for us and our species? Are all those things, those influences, good? Bad? What influences our answers?
