If a man resists the natural urge to cultivate moral and ethical qualities the result is disorder of soul and mind. A man can so distort his perceptual growth as to remain ever either an intellectual dwarf or an indecisive retardation.
If the reasoning does emanate from an orderly mind - will not surely grasp the beauty of ethics.

I disagree. I don't think the urge to cultivate moral and ethical qualities is natrual. I think ethics and morals are mad-made concepts generated so that we can exist semi-peacefully in an advanced society. I say advanced because I mean a society with intelligent thought and language, as opposed to a society of monkeys or some other primate.

the only reason we have ethics and morals is because we have an advanced society, which isn't natrual either.

Any statistical increase in the usage of the :idiot: emoticon since becoming Admin should not be considered significant, meaningful, or otherwise cause for worry.

They might direct you through a busy intersection, but the wouldn't follow you home and park your car."
