    Default Your Morality, In A Nutshell

    This isn't a place for long 10 page essays on your morality, but summarize your morality here.

    1) Robin Hood morality - I have a bit of a Robin Hood morality in that I believe that certain actions (lying, stealing) are contextual in terms of how a person is being taken advantage of. For example, if someone is suffering or starving or dying because of a wealthy corrupt system, I see no issue in avenging the actions of the corrupt to protect or help the weak.

    2) Most people are products of their childhood - therefore I strongly believe in things like therapy, rehabilitation and humane prisons

    3) Community values - Everything is interdependent and interconnected, so people should be free to be independent and have individual rights, but only in so far is that it does not actively cause the suffering and death of innocent people

    4) What looks self-sacrificial is often self-serving - for example, having well-fed well-educated people tends to lead to a stronger society for everyone involved, and this is a good thing

    5) Dying for people should only be reserved for extreme circumstances - dying for people is stupid and insensible for children, women of childbearing age (and I think mothers of small children have NO PLACE in active military duty for similar reasons) and even men should not be sacrificed in war UNLESS THERE IS NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE.

    6) War and the death penalty are necessary evils - but should only be used as a last resort

    7) Intentionally harming or exploiting the innocent is evil.

    8) But avenging the exploiters is moral.

    9) I don't have children because - I believe it's immoral to bring children in the world unless you have a stable home and readiness for them; I also prefer two parent homes and would only tend to have a child in a marriage that would not end in divorce, barring extreme circumstances like physical abuse or dangerous flagrant infidelity (and yes I'd check the man for these traits before having kids with him).

    10) Loyalty, education, and generosity are all important virtues. So is freedom of speech.

    Okay, that's what I've got for now.

    Don't exploit yourself. Don't exploit others. Treat everyone as you would want to be treated. Let your "Yes" mean yes and your "No" mean no. Who smelt it dealt it.

    Victims of the system aren't just victims, but victims of power players. everyone needs peace and living, only they could have it if they deserve it. I also agree on pretty much all your points. that's all I got.

    Nothing should also distract us from our vidya

    I also believe in freedom for people to have their own communities and cultures and religions, which may fall under the header of "free speech" but not necessarily, because there seems to be a trend toward government-enforced cultural erasing which I strongly disagree with. Despite my Robin Hood morality, I do not like the socialist ideals of, for example, making it so that even children in their formative years are taken from their parents and raised in a daycare...which ironically has become a trait of American capitalist life, which is why I think corporatist capitalism and communism mirror one another on so many fundamental levels ...basically corporatism has forced a society where there are less stay-at-home mothers and homemakers...and do you know what this does? It helps to undermine culture as well as creating this effect on child rearing, which is eerily similar to Marxism. I also don't like one world way or any crap like that.

    Just as a footnote, before someone comes in and tries to brand me a good socialist.

    My morals are far too convoluted, and often downright contradictory (Where they exist at all.), to be written down in any coherent way...

    Okay, that's what I've got for now.
    I agree with everything, except for me personally not so much #9. I strongly think people should be responsible for their future children's well being and not have children they don't really want and are prepared to take care of. I want a couple, but I know I am in no way ready yet.

    Basically my ethics consist of being responsible for the consequences of your actions. You can't really go wrong there. Balance of power is the foundation for my ethical system, and a good principle is to respect the interconnected web of life we are a part of and the planet. "And it harm none, do as ye will" (from the Wiccan Rede). I think we should try our best to have the highest well being for the most people.

    I think people should respect each other, educate themselves and each other, think for themselves and think outside the box, and respect each other's freedom. And definitely mind their own business and stop judging and trying to butt into other people's lives. Each person has their own karmic lessons to learn. I highly value honesty.

    Just some thoughts.

    Be kind to others and true to yourself.

    I keep thinking of other things but maybe it all boils down to the above, for me.

    Don't do to other people what you wouldn't reasonably expect them to do to you under the exact same circumstances.
