uh not really. just because something is held as a value or moral, it doesnt mean that they dont make sense..
Of course of course.
Values are one of those things that save our brains some computation. It's, evolutionary speaking, very efficient in learning adapted behaviors (meaning they survived until now) and speeding up reaction time in everyday situations
Yet our societies are just too flexible, too large, evolving too fast for values.
alot of them will, of course, be rather rational, but on the other hand it doesn't make them the only and more efficient method\point of view.
But the major risk is that rational values are used as a excuse to cover up for the numerous mistakes of the rest, all the bullshit, irrational, unfair things that just stay alive using memetics
