    Yes. I believe some people are just better than others, and that this often stems from some innate spiritual superiority. Honor is a spiritual force that has manifestations in the real world.

    Only just. Barely at all. But yes.

    A job's a job. All else being equal, people with those jobs are better than me because I have no job; my life serves no purpose. But if they're really bad people, their jobs aside, then I am still better.

    How do you know this, Viktyr Korimir, with such surety?

    How do any of you know with absolute certainty that your beliefs are correct?

    There are two kinds of "better" in this discussion, cpwill.

    1. Better in certain regards.

    2. Better as in this person is better, superior, to others in general. More valuable, worthy, important, unique.

    Because my "game" will drag you down into deep waters.

    I love abstract, philosophical discussion.
