A person sees an evil and turns away. Is that a lack of morale backbone or is it self preservation. Were they scared, were they protecting someone or is there no excuse?
Every Sunday I run the England Athletics Weekly30 Challenge. The idea is you run for thirty minutes as fast as you can and you’re scored on the distance you cover. I am generally 2nd in my age group. Last week I stalked the guy who came first; on his Strava account. His entire route is downhill. Is that immoral, I wonder.
Apparently if you have high moral values you are less likely to be funny, laugh at other people’s jokes and come across as standoffish. After last weeks post I may have a problem. In fact looking back upon my life I guess the moral bar has been pretty low. I’m told I’m funny, laugh a lot and more likely to climb on, than to stand off
But they also say high morals make you more trustworthy. But, people with high moral values are miserable SOB’s who don’t get involved, keep themselves to themselves and are prudish? So how do you get close enough to tell them something that you can trust them with?
But, they may have a point. If you Google people with high moral values or ethics. It brings up:
The Buddha. Aristotle, Jesus, Martin Luther, John Calvin and Gandhi. They weren’t exactly famous for their stand-up and I don’t recall seeing any of them with their hand stuck up a yellow bear. It’s much more complicated than my little blog, obviously, but I do rather like to simplify things And I guess there is a difference xx
