    Can’t being a shameless ball of pleasure seeking shit be a value? It seems like a lot of people sure are like that and enjoy it and are just fine. If not, why not?

    Gonna get a bit wee-woo.

    Cannibalism and incest are proscribed and looked down upon because they are a contradiction to the work discipline of capitalism; the consumption and consummation of thyself, the Love to thyself impede on the mechanization of the self as a mere tool for capital reproduction. Thus they are formulated as an evil Other; but it is important to keep in mind that moral categories of good and evil do not exist a priori. They are ascribed ad hoc to reify the norms of one particular mode of production. Morality is a tool of discipline, not universality. We cannot then conceive of the Other as natural or right, because our comprehension of our selves is so predicated upon the mechanization of thereof whereby our bodily and psychological faculties are constituted as means of production; a machine; meant to be used just for work.

    Its a problem because it's not good for your body, brain, or the people around you. Values help give people something to adhere to. They can feel good for following it. They can use it to relate to others.

    It can be a value i guess. It's pretty subjective though. Not really adhering to external order or realty. Just following dopamine rushes. The point of values is more so to have some internal standards or expectations of ones self to me.

    Think of it as your own personal standards.

    While a rule may be something externally imposed on you,

    Your values are something imposed on you + by you.

    A rule/law can be bad...

    Say there's a law that says you can't drive faster than 55 mph on an absolutely desolate rural freeway (those kinda rules stink).

    Your values, on the other hand, if well thought out, can be a good thing:

    For instance, "I will never eat X" (Pretend X is something notoriously bad) Is a good thing because it'll increase your long-term happiness.

    In sum, values are your own personal standards, which if well thought out, guide you and keep you on track in the long-run.

    Thank u SLI Confucius daddy.

    So it sounds like you think people made values for work, but SLIs don’t like work, so do you actually not believe in / value values ? I’m confused now. Kon-fu-ze-d

    Wait, but if the point of values is to have some internal standards, and valuing being a hedonistic sack of shit *doesn’t* adhere to external order/reality (meaning it’s more internally-defined), then doesn’t the value of being a hedonistic sack of shit fit the definition of a value perfectly?

    What if you ARE shit though? It’s a shit world, so what makes you think you aren’t just shit also? If the goal is to value yourself, then you’ll just label everything that’s an echo/extension of yourself as being valuable as well. You’ve just defined yourself as valuable already, or able to even begin to choose values correctly in this shit world. How do you know what is valuable and what’s shit?

    Because I say so, anything that benefits me or I approve of is valuable, to me. I'm selfish as fuck and whatever. Just because I can.

    If you have values you'll probably know what you want, and knowing what to want is important to get ahead in life, you have goals, a destiny, now you just gotta work for it.

    I view them as moral guidelines that we strive for but I think nearly everyone is a hypocrite and lies to themselves. So values give me insight/starting point into what a person might be about but it's usually not the full picture.

    That’s interesting. So are you saying that you look at what people claim that they value and compare it to their actions and other words to gain psychological insight on them?

    Basically. People claim certain "values" to fit into socially but their actions betray them. For example, I have met people who go and on and on about transparency/loyalty/integrity but cheat and steal, others who emphasize that they are generous but are scrooges, and others who say that they are loving but are judgmental and hateful, etc. Politicians are an extreme example of this.

    Saying that, my formula for people is if pros -->cons = keep, if cons --> pros = toss. I think everyone does this to some extent but each person will prioritize the pros and cons differently. So if someone is friends with someone I dislike, I don't care. And if I am friends with someone others dislike, it doesn't bother me.

    Well this may be a bit out there but I see Capitalism as an artificial intelligence that subsumes everything in its path to maximize human production, which has affected every level of human society including "morals", I guess it's fun to talk about how it distorts stuff. The above was just an example, not really particularly related to type. Another example could be how "manners" are a euphemism for conditioning your children to become part of a domesticated labour force and be polite. The need to be polite comes from a need to become a part of the established societal order, subjecting is to this order. You need to condition your children in order for them to fit in with the prior generation of conditioned children, and then you pat yourself on the back and call yourself a good parent for adjusting your children so well. Gotta ensure the reproduction of capital after all.

    Morality is inescapable, even though it's boring af. If you live within a human group, power dynamics have a clear moral dimension, but the sheer pretense of universal ethics is not only boring and mundane, it's really tiresome. Zaps energy and delivers little. There's Utilitarianism which is fun to talk about I guess but I think guiding oneself by general rules of behaviour (rather than case-by-case analysis) is unrealistic and leads to absurd results.

    edit: my boss called me a lazy stuck up bitch after refusing to work overtime and telling him to suck it. In fact being 'lazy' is probably one of my defining characteristics, dunno if it's common in SLIs

    I usually feel like if you have to verbalize or claim that you have a certain value, especially when going out of one’s way to do so, you either don’t actually have it, and/or are superficially using it as a way to control or influence others. “Valuable traits” to me implies action and are derived by actions that benefit, and words are what people use to substitute for action.

    In other words, not always, but more often than not, I find that when people go out of their way to emphasize that they have certain values, integrity actually runs lower than average and it’s bs that they can’t back up.

    That's why I am scared about stating values because I don't want to be held accountable. LOL

    Interesting analysis. I agree with this. Mb bc we’re irrational type-kun/kin.

    Personally I don’t even like being held accountable in a positive way. People often use telling you that you’re a “good person” (based on actions that benefit them, not on careful thought of what that means to you or objectively) as a substitute for providing material benefit, and as a way to manipulate you. Even if they don’t do it consciously, I don’t think the assessments of others is a good thing to base one’s ego on.

    Peace is a lie; there is only Passion.
    Through Passion, I gain strength.
    Through strength, I achieve victory.
    Though victory, my chains are broken.
    The Force shall free me.
