Second time writing this... Fucking image inserter wouldn't work and crashed everything. - I may update this with a longer version more in size with the first one I wrote but now I just lost enthusiasm so i'll just write a small one.
Have you no honor?! Well, what is honor? Honor is defined in several ways. Mostly, as high respect.
You have honored your family. - How? How does one person honor an entire family? What if the rest of the family are assholes?
Medal of Honor. - The Medal of Honor is the highest military decoration awarded by the United States government. It is bestowed by the President, in the name of Congress, upon members of the United States Armed Forces who distinguish themselves through conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his or her life above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States.
The medal given to reckless soldiers who goes out and guns down people in other countries for the sake of their own countrys "security". - How this medal is supposed to give respect I do not know, mainly because for what I can understand going by the pre-requisite is that it deserves no respect at all whatsoever. ...Oh, wait.. patriotism. Heh.. funny. Fucking idiots.
To stand in honor of... - Mostly at church, burials, or at stadiums before play, or in schools. - For some reason, wearing a HAT is a bad thing because apparently wearing a HAT is offensive to national anthems, churches and schools. I don't see how. How does removing ones fucking hat equal respect? Why not remove ALL clothes?
Honor - Honesty. Honesty is to be honorable? Then don't be. if you were honest all of the time you'd be in trouble. Why? Curiosity. - Imagine you get curious about trying to drink, but you're underage. You come home and smell a bit. Your parents asks you if you have drinked any alcoholic beverages...
1. No, some guy accidently spilled some over me.
2. Yes. I was curious.
Here, you may want to tell the truth depending on how well you know your parents.
- Almost same scenario. You get curious about testing weed and a cop approaches, he doesn't see you use nor have weed, but he asks what you are doing.
1. Enjoying the sunset.
2. Preparing weed for yourself. - This gets you in jail for illegal drug posession.
Tell the truth and you are an idiot. Honest, but an idiot.
Honor has lost the power it once had on me. People used to say.. "Yagami you have no fucking honor." - "Yes I DO!" i'd reply. Now, when I realize what honor actually is, (When I was younger, like 12 or so, i'd think honor was something important, it isn't.) the answer is mostly "No". I have no honor and honor should not be automatic, depending on what definition of "honor", the answer may vary, but mostly "No".
Honor - Respect. It may very well only mean respect because that is what it is mostly referred to mean - to show high respect. Respect should NEVER be automatic, it should be EARNED and depending upon the person's performance and actions. - Same with military personell, and law enforcement. I do NOT respect their profession. Their job is to get people in jail, and to tell you how to live your life, but do I respect them as human beings..? Maybe, do they deserve it?
Edit: I just have to add this: "It has been an honor meeting you." - How? How is it an honor to meet another person? Why the automatic respect? How is meeting one person an honor? What makes the one person a honor to meet? It can be someone you look-up to, but does that make that person deserving of more respect than you? - I guess it is a matter of how one sees it. If I knew that the person I met had done something good that I personally respect, i'd probably say so. But if a person met me and said that it was an honor to meet me, i'd simply say that I am just a human just like the other person, and I deserve no extra respect for being myself.
"People found it offensive when I wore my hat in school, then they gave me the graduation hat and man was I offended." - Unknown
