Preachers Justifying Private Jets

By Leo Gura - November 15, 2019

Don’t underestimate the power and shamelessness of the human mind to justify its own survival to itself:

“We’re in soul ego business here.”

Seem absurd? Structurally, your mind does exactly the same thing every day. Does this kind of thing outrage and baffle you? That’s because you do it yourself! But of course you deny it. You get offended and upset that you might have any structural likeness to the above example. You project your own self-bias onto others as outrage so that you can feel innocent and righteous by comparison.

See how sneaky your devil mind is?

Justification, self-bias, devilry — these are all structural. Don’t get distracted by the content of private jets or religion. This has nothing to do with private jets or religion. This is all about survival. You might be the most rational, scientific person in the world, and still you do this kind of self-justifying structurally.
