35. Oh really?

 


Start here: "A woman has an abortion because she does not wish to remain pregnant."

Why does she not wish to remain pregnant?

There exists no answer that is not somehow linked to insecurity.


Your dollar store pamphlet psychology is pretty laughable. The fact of the matter is that every unpleasant or paranoid thing that humans do is based on some form of fear. I know you don't like it, but if you could actually sit and seriously consider the 'root of evil', you will find that it is fear.... which is also manifest as insecurity.

Try to come up with a reason for abortion that has nothing to do with insecurity. If you are honest, you will find there exists NO rational reason outside of insecurity.

That's not 'projection' , it's reality.

You're right about gun ownership though, not everyone owns a gun because they are insecure. Although I would venture that the VAST majority of gun owners are very insecure about something. Me? Well, I practice honest introspection. I own weapons of various kinds not because I wish to use them on anyone, and not only because I'm very, very fond of practicing with them which, to me, is an art, but also because I'm aware of the internal demons (insecurities) that drive me to desire that feeling of power.

Unlike many, I'm honest with myself.
