self test A on the above          self test B on the above    


I believe that the rules and customs of any long-lived society deserve respect. This glue, shaped by challenges of untold demands, holds society together. While those guided by self interest may not like limits on behavior that society imposes, accepting them is a responsible choice. (Note: Those who respect authority, law & order, and value the hard work / sacrifices of their ancestors, will be comfortable with this theme.  So will many who value traditional gender-based roles and long-lived religious institutions.)


I'm dissatisfied with the status quo.  Three factors gauging 1) my dissatisfaction,  2) the perceived gap between how things should be and how they are, and 3) my belief in the need for and/or rightness of the change I'm working for determine the strength of my commitment. (Note: Activities the dissatisfied pursue can include raising public awareness, political campaigning, lobbying, building social movements to reform the system from within, filing lawsuits, organizing strikes, boycotts, civil disobedience, violent revolutionary/terrorist tactics, etc.)
