Reconceptualising “vulnerability” & “deserving” & possibly other words I don’t grok.

New topic.

I do not understand the concept of “deserve”.
The concept of "deserve" is often associated with the idea of merit or entitlement based on one's actions, character, or other qualities. It can be difficult to fully understand and define, as there are often subjective factors at play that influence our perceptions of what someone does or does not "deserve."

For many people, the concept of "deserve" is intertwined with their beliefs about fairness, justice, and morality. They may believe that individuals should be rewarded or punished based on their behavior, choices, or achievements, or that everyone is entitled to certain basic human rights and freedoms.

However, there are many factors that can complicate this idea, including individual differences in values, beliefs, and life experiences, as well as external factors that may influence one's opportunities or circumstances. It's important to approach the concept of "deserve" with an open mind and a willingness to be flexible and understanding.

In some cases, it may be more helpful to focus on empathy and compassion towards others, rather than trying to assess what someone does or does not "deserve." Rather than making judgments based on limited information or personal biases, we can work towards understanding and supporting one another, regardless of our individual beliefs about merit or entitlement.
