Something new to think about, nearly every day.
Seems to me like the whole guilt system is busted. 100% bug, 0% code. Unless it's double-hijacked by something, nobody feels guilty when they do something wrong, and they do feel guilty about things they can't control.
It can be prevent action or it can instigate action (depending on how it's used). In some circles, they lean towards instigating action.
Guilt is so easily manipulated, it does make one question the existence of any just, divine ruler. If God wanted us to follow just laws, why allow the misplaced guilt of so many around us? Is it just that being around evil corrupts our sense of guilt? If so, then what of those born into a society of evil? How can they choose good when their senses are corrupted by others from the moment they begin to talk?
