This was for Metal Bomber question, sorry!

Ok, this is kind of complex. For starters their is always at least one or more correct courses. Thing is, correct is a subjective term, based on our perception of reality given an imperfect and incomplete amount of information, valued against our own principles and moral compass. Therefore the solution may vary extremely from one individual to another.

Given that, let's say we can at least agree on a base condition: hurting is undesirable (bad) therefore you want to minimize it. Then we find a bit of a problem, because if a mending a problem that already caused harm, at the expense of causing more harm without necessarily healing previous harm implies the need of a motivation. That means, the unfair situation is causing harm to the person with the power to correct it. (at this point, evpe eavy conscience can be included here) so the question would be: does the harm that correcting this problem make will be worst that what I'm being harmed by not correcting it? If you want to make things even more difficult, Does this harm compensates for the risk of possible, future harm?
The answers of these questions are fully open and even a correct answer can bring a worst scenario, but yes, there can be a correct course of action, the one you decide in a deliberate, conscious and reflexive way, which hmgives you the conviction that it is the best thing to do. Results, however, are not guaranteed.

Regarding the question about pride: no.
Pride is not self love, is just another form of egotism. Most likely the most noble act when two people are at harm because of pride, is carried by who abandons it. On the other side, if someone else's pride puts you apart no matter what, there is little to do but leave the door open and carry on with your life.

Would you agree that as society, digital behaviour and risks should be pressed into school curriculums?



I just wanna say that was an amazing explanation.
Seems like we have some young sages on this forum.
Thank you for your well thought out answer for both our questions.

Which skill do you value higher - to be able to build or find what you need to survive, or to survive without things that are necessary for this, usually?


Survival is quite vital.
I think both is good.
Surviving without something is great because you are fine.
But it could be boring
So having an ability to build come make life very fun.
So I'd go with that answer?

Is it ever too late to live your dreams and go after them?

I don't think so. Regardless of your age, you might be faced with situations where you have nothing of worth left but your aspirations and your own ability to rely on in order to reach them.

What about different morals, does that justify cutting ties with friends/family members?

Thank you! I really like how this topic became a great space for presenting ideas and for the same reason I want to answer in the best way possible.

Regarding the first part, I think that if you get into a point where everything depends on your own capability, then collaterals become irrelevant and the model stays. Its still my view, trying to be as objective as possible.

Also, I'm really enjoying this topic!

The second question I think it's really interesting and I'll focus on family since it's the extreme case. Thing is, moral value is vague, mostly because morals are little more than social agreements on basic guidelines. They can change by culture and their final intrínsec value is purely personal. In a non evolutionary point of view, so is family. Blood ties are strong not because of blood but by the shared bonds and identity as part of a clan. It means that in their value they can be broken when faced with strong morals.

Now, on a personal note I think extremely few moral differences could justify breaking bonds with family (take into consideration that for instance, justifying a criminal behavior Is a moral statement) but they could be broken nevertheless and since justification is personal, as long as I have no remorse the break will be justified.

In this day and age, organized religion is indispensable for the future of humanity?

No! From my point of view organized religion is anathema to the future of humanity. All it does is create arbitrary "us" & "them" conflicts and further divide us. Maybe if humans can learn to practice their faith without using it as an excuse to judge others I might learn to feel differently. But so long as people feel justified in hating, reviling, condemning and ridiculing people who lifestyles aren't approved by some random text they chose to revere, then site their text as being above criticism, there will always be conflict. Let me add, I have no malice towards any faith, I believe people should practice what they like in private. My beef is with people who replace thinking with church. When the cashier asks , "You want fries with that?" one shouldn't need to consult their bible or call their pastor. Feels like I could go on about this hours...

What do you think of "safe spaces & trigger warnings" for people who don't have PTSD?

Ehh, I don't feel particularly comfortable talking about politics, but... I think it's ridiculous. Discussions - especially on controversial issues - should always be encouraged, within the boundaries of the law and free speech. Thing is, I feel these boundaries are being deliberately distorted by every side of the political spectrum. I'm far from being an expert myself, but the way I see it, these things serve only to further divide young people, with the side effect of hindering their development into independent, critical thinking adults.

What do you think of the saying "time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time"?

A lot...
Not knowing how to do math without calculator
Not doing things manually
Not knowing how to read a map
Powerless without wifi
Maybe even having problems interacting with each other... Social skills
Not exercising/lazy to cook: app to order and cook food
So much, but praying they will be fine. (:

Why are we constantly judged? And is there a way to minimize this?

Because people are different and have different tastes. There will be always people who do not agree with one's attitude, especially in a community with many members. To minimize this, just follow the attitude you consider right, and you might possibly find people whom you would get along well with.

What type (or mixture of types) of -dere am I, in your own opinion?
(This question is different from my previous one in this game, where I asked the next poster about their own type of -dere.)

I think it would be a pure deredere? The other types I've read about look nothing like you...


If you were managing job interviews, would you rather pick someone who's obviously hard-working or someone who's obviously talented?

Sorry, I really just made a lot of assumptions there... What I meant was any job that requires higher education, and you could swap "talent" for "potential". The core of the matter would be a risk vs reward assessment

I heard a few songs by them , which I liked really very much, I looked up for more songs by them, and I found them pretty refreshing. Slowly, but securely, I grew affection for Aventura's music, over my time of listening to it.

Should we believe in interpreting the dreams we have in our sleep?

And of course thank you back buddy,
Your well thought of answers have been a great contribution.
I think it's good to have some balance on this site.
Glad to see some great thoughts on excellent questions.
Love the way your mind thinks brother.

Thank you for answering this.
I appreciate your kind opinion and thoughts.
I'm wondering though, is there a way we can stop judging.
Though it's an automatic thing.
Maybe not judging right away
Or giving people a chance
And not letting a bad first impression affect things
I totally get you
Society sets standards
And even we as people compare our values to people..

Yes, I think it would be good to.
The subconscious could be speaking to us.
Or even God,(if you are religious) .
Or you can just take it as a grain of salt and not say or think anything.
Its really up to you to interpret.
I'd say observe, but do not over analyze.
But definitely give it some thought :)

Hmmm since the last post lacked a question I'll answer to the one before, should we believe in interpreting the dreams we have in our sleep?

In very short answer, no. If you believe in something it implies that your rational analysis is suspended in favor of personal reasons and preconception just because you want to. That has nothing to do with the reality, where dream interpretation is a Pseudo science at best.

More importantly, the question speaks of a biigest problem of this generation: the absurd importance given to beliefs when faced to facts. No belief should be respected only because someone has it and no matter how hard is a belief, it has zero effect to give you the reason in any argument. If you believe or think that you should believe on something maybe you should ask first if you have hard, objective arguments to justify your adhesion to an idea. If it does not fit with reality, you can be endorsing very damaging people, for free.

In the age of the South America colonization, it was common for Spain to hold so called "residence trials" which were a sort of final audit an trial done to the viceroys at the end of their terms, to see if they had committed crimes to the Spanish crown. Should we have a similar process today for our authorities?

I would also like to answer this one in my opinion. Believing in a interpretation of anything is believing in a interpretation not the facts.

I read some of the wording on Wikipedia of “residence trails” it sounds like a form of a background check. The only thing I don’t like about it is it says the person is not allowed to leave. I think if people want to agree to background checks and other people want to set standards on qualifications for something that’s fine.

My question is:

What’s your views on credit cards?
