There’s a certain level of intelligence expected for an adult to be considered normal. Society can measure an exact level or normal reasoning for an average person. There is also a certain level of emotional maturity in an adult’s judgement to be considered morally right. This concept can be argued and often is argued. We have mental intelligence and emotional intelligence. Without even focusing on spiritual enlightens let’s look at our society profile here in the United States of America.
In this country it is not considered a human right to have food and/or shelter. Now, I’m not stating an argument for the homeless, however, this human right is not agreed equally globally. In other countries it is considered a human right to have food and/or shelter. Yet, here, in the most military powerful, and riches land which globally leads nations, this right is not considered legal. Why bring this point into view? We do have legal rights to choose or change gender as well as vote politically before a legal drinking age, plus choose to practice abortion before a legal age to consent. These are issues we politically fight about. This is not a statement to voice an opinion on rather abortion or the legal drinking age is morally acceptable. However, when scoping the grand scheme of priorities, I have to say that I feel our country here in America has missed the mark.
We can overlook the emotional intelligence it takes for one to be sexually active then choose to abort the outcome by killing their child. Nevertheless, the mere necessity of food and a place to dwell from the elements of this Earth is overlooked or not considered a priority. We think this way as a nation. I specifically pointing out the right to choose sexually to make a point. When our emotional intelligence is lower than the average standard of moral reasoning it makes it hard to balance a righteous judgement. Although, I may say that this country of the United States does not carry a psychological profile of the right for food and shelter, we do promote the freedom for the right to work or find a fair wage job for the ability to independently support ourselves. This is not to point out fault to our neighbors or fellow citizens. This is to express my level of commitment when it comes to me being a part of the whole. We can not have social justice without economic justice for they are both one and the same. Where I stand on my right to vote illumes a needed decision in the grand scheme of human rights.
