When things fall into place.
This is the eleventh in a series of posts reflecting on the general decline of civility. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
So that’s why I used this first example of a social convention to help us get a good grasp of the topic. Walking on the right side of the street is a step in the right direction, but as you’ll see, there are several scenarios that we can look at. While some are great examples, others will try to pass themselves off as standards that really aren’t. Let’s look at an example of these anti-conventions.
The kwality of riting is offen kriticizd az an insult to siviliti. Unfortunately, for those who feel hurt by these linguistic shortcomings, I would tell them that they need only read elsewhere and that there are many other more important problems to deal with and invest your energy in. Real life takes place elsewhere than through a screen and physical interactions with the world need to be improved, otherwise, the status quo can only lead to the gradual deterioration of our situation.
This is how we can judge that the following scenarios of civility will respect the following rules:
- My behavior and attitude does not deteriorate my situation for the benefit of others;
- My behavior and attitude does not deteriorate others’ situation to my benefit;
- The net and universal value of my behavior and attitude is not to the detriment of others either:
- by a lesser personal sacrifice avoiding a greater sacrifice for others;
- by a personal gain that results in an equal or greater gain for others.
