Another thing that we'll help this values system run well is keeping things phrased as simply as possible.  Fewer words permit less word twisting.

I think I've said it before, but if we can't trust each other, there's no point in doing this. I think it's an extension of our trust to keep away from any rules except for the obvious: don't kill, rape, assault, or otherwise intentionally do something to harm somebody else.

Additionally, it has been almost unerringly statistically proven that in environments in which rules and codes are replace with values and an honor system, those things rules and regulations would have been in place to prevent occur far less. Oh, I love psychology.

I agree...laws just control people, and not very effectively. If you find a loophole, you can do that and not break the law, which is so silly. It's far better to get values and a spirit of what we want and what we don't want, and if someone violates that spirit, then we have a problem.

Do remember though that in doing that, Selkie, we are treading a very, very fine line. If there is any misunderstanding in any way about the "spirit" of things or what our values entail or entail against, it can cause 50 times more trouble.

True, which is why we need to be extra clear.

And also list them in order of importance.

I use values in my personal life way more than rules, and I think that this is a good idea.  However, I don't know if I would be able to change my own value system, though I'd like to think the two are fairly compatible.

How about the "don't be a douchebag" spirit? anyone agree with that section of it?

NUMBER 1: Don't be a douchebag, asshat, or otherwise evil. Don't be evil.

lol


Zee, the way I envision this, most of us happen to be anarchists (but possibly not all), and as such, we should have similar values to begin with. We are very unlikely to come up with something that is totally incompatible with anybody, and the ideal goal, I would think, is to come up with something that there are absolutely no objections toward.

I see no objections to morla/value #1. do you want to maybe start a new thread with a list of suggestions to discuss and edit into the first post?

I'll do that with this thread. Don't know why I didn't do it to begin with.

Should I seriously put #1 as "Don't be evil?"

And: Now taking suggestions for and against!
