In search of standards that always work (Part 5 of 9)


Large number of men believe in arbitrary moral standards, but you are not obliged to imitate their foolishness. The idea that things can be done only in one specific way is also false. The expectation that people must accept imposed values is equally unworkable. If you have ethical questions, look around until you find logical and consistent answers.

As friends or spouse, seek out exclusively individuals who can think for themselves. Abandon contradictory goals. Never get involved with persons whom you know to be dishonest, since they are unable to maintain good personal relationships. Deceit is synonymous with inconsistency. False ideas conflict with facts and with each other.
