    Default Personal Values, Morality, Principles, and Practicality.

    Do you find personal values, morality, principles deter or hinder practicality?

    Does following these beliefs excuse the possible opportunity? What are the benefits does choosing personal values create? Does it outweigh the missed gain?

    This just popped up in my head while I was on a phone call. Basically this person is choosing to follow what they view as "morally correct", and by doing so, they've closed many doors for potential growth and experience.
    It got me thinking about how inconvenient and limiting having personal values/morals/ and principles can be. I almost wish that we didn't.

    Do you think a world without these traits would be any good? Would it become an opportunistic society of backstabbing? Is it possible for such a society to even exist? How would that effect the core of our decision making? Is everything technically a persona value/principle?

    stop making people do your homework!
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    "sometimes"? well obviously. It's not hard to think of a dozen hypothetical scenarios.

    Is your real question how often it happens, or what?

    Ideology is a limiting framework. Even being open is a form of ideology. So, absolutely, it can hinder from perceived excesses, perceived practicality and perceived enjoyment of life.

    definitely. there are some children who always walk across one of the streets i use to drive to work... if i didn't have any values/morality/principles, i'd smoosh them for the sake of gas efficiency and time.

    yes, but you could say practicality is a personal value too.

    The OP is too vague to be answered.

    Definitely. Nonetheless, the big advantage is you get cooperation, as people trust trustworthy people more. In the end, not having personal values can easily be a disavantage. Sociopaths seem to get away with my rule, but it doesn't last much.

    Alright. I edited it.

    Sorry if it doesn't seem clear. My mind started wondering, and I just started typing down what it was spewing.
