    Inner Beauty Essay Nate Czech

    While writing, to be successful, one must typically be knowledgeable and/or have an

    appreciation of the subject of said writing. On the topic of Inner Beauty, I have neither. While I

    am aware of the majority beliefof inner beauty, this does not necessarily imply that I believe in

    what most people interpret inner beauty as. I believe that people are not just born with things likeInner Beauty, I think, that, over time, as a result ofwhat is predominantly based on

    experiences and background, they develop what many consider a Beautiful Inside.

    From what I know, Societys conception ofhaving Inner beauty andbeing a Good

    Person are more or less synonymous. One of the reasons why this topic, along with many

    others akin to it, is difficult is because the interpretation of good is relative. For example, from

    his misguided eyes, Adolf Hitler thought that what he was doing was good. This is why inner

    beauty exists only as far as we believe it does within ourselves or others, an idea as opposed to

    an object, somewhat similar to time or imagination.

    Here is where controversies come into play. One must be careful while dealing with the

    subject of ethical relativity, as offence can be easily taken. If being a good person really

    depends on someones point of view, then how does the justice system work at all? This is where

    we implement respect. The difference between humans and (known) non-humans is that humans

    have the ability to define morality, and the definition generally uses respect as a focal point. For

    instance, we know, without the law or superiors, that killing somebody would be immoral. This

    is because of respect; we know that we want to live our life, so we respect others wishes, as long

    as we consider them equals. Which we must, because they are equals.

    Obviously everybody is different, so we are not equal in that sense. But we are equal in

    the fact that we did not choose what we excel at and what we dont. Just because somebody is

    more efficient in an area of study, does not denote they are superior in the human sense, all it

    means is that they were NATURALY selected, through what was chiefly genetics, without their

    contribution, to be better. This is why Talents are meaningless. Even when somebody is not

    naturally good at something, but put forth much effort to improve, and become the best even,

    they were still NATURALY born with the drive, with the motivation, with the dedication. Their

    experiences and genes which they had no control over gave them what they have, even the want,

    that is, the desire to be good at their specific area.

    So, In conclusion, Inner beauty does not truly exist. Not to say there are no good or for

    that matter bad people, but to say that everybody is good andbad, not according to some higher

    system of Ethical Judges, but according to howyou interpret them. In a way, everybody is

    Ethical Judges, judging each according to their own code of morals, which none can correct

    nor discourage.
