Political human life.

Hello. I feel like I made a really good point in my last post, so I wanted to make another post to emphasize it !

Human life is not something that exists outside of the political domain. Which is just to say, in so much as we have a government, and in so much as we have this good functioning United States government, there is no human life outside of its political arena. And this is to say: law.

Now, I am the last philosopher to say that everything is political. That all we’re dealing with is politics. No.

However, the reason why I don’t feel I need a gun is because I feel safe enough under our government such that if I have an argument with someone I don’t have to worry about them killing me over it. Or me them.

That’s it. That’s politics. At root, there is nothing more than that basic fact. I don’t wanna have to carry a gun and defend myself whenever I go outside my house, or even if I’m in my house because someone might want my house. Governance, and particularly the United States government, is good because I can’t kill someone just because I disagree with them.

Yes, yes, there is all the social stuff too..

But the abortion, women’s health, issue is being made around life and health, more so around the sanctity of human life.

And I am saying that I thank God that I don’t get to kill someone just because I disagree with them. The reason I don’t get to is because of our government; in this sense, life has nothing to do with some essential quality of being human, Which is to say, some quality of being human that exists outside of governance.

If you want to argue the case with me, then that’s philosophy. Without governments you’re gonna start having a philosophical argument with me and I’m gonna pull out my gun and shoot you because I don’t wanna hear your opinion or argue or discuss with you about what some sort of essential valuable human life might be. Because I already know what it is, and if you have a different opinion then I’m gonna kill you. Why not? There is no policing body to prevent me in any way. I would sustain my ideal by removing every other, including what it is to be human and what it’s life is.

Now, I’m just making a point. I am not going to further the philosophical route to say that I’m ethical because of government. I’m saying that government has to do with securing of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and the general welfare, and all that Constitution stuff.

I’m saying, life, human life, is what we are when we’re doing stuff involved with other human beings. And if we would bring the issue of abortion back to this basic fact, and not bring in what people believe health is or life is, then the decision would be so clear.

Ethics, and my personal values about the sanctity of human life is my personal values. in other words, it is my religion. And government should not step into my personal religious views so long as they don’t interfere in another persons ability to pursue their own life.

If a fetus is interfering in my life and my ability to pursue my values and my beliefs, then ultimately it’s doing it through its mom at least, at minimum. And so whatever value that the fetus might have so far as a human life, is ultimately a religious ethical argument.

We need to write a better law. And not make it upon whether or not a fetus is a human life and deserves rights.

Individual communities can do that. We have to get clear on what is actually happening, if we are going to ever get anywhere towards some sort of “inalienable rights“ as an essence.
