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?
