    Your ideals

    So, we live in a time that seems to lack any great ideas to strive for. What are yours?

    What I wanted to pick wasn't on there, which is "education". I believe it is paramount, above all else, to seek the best possible education for our children. Without an educated society we cannot advance.

    The maximization of human well-being, which one could argue that this falls under the science category.
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    Re: Your ideals

    Relgion/spiritual beliefs, family, survival-related issues, science.

    I take my spiritual beliefs very seriously and try to live what I believe.

    I value my family highly and spend considerable time and energy on them, most especially my son. I think this is one of the most important things in life.

    I have a long standing interest in things relating to survival issues, including crime prevention and self-defense as well as being prepared for local or regional disasters like hurricanes, quakes, wars and economic collapse.

    Science, and technology, are facsinating to me. The advancements of science have enabled us to live longer, fuller lives with greater comfort and less pain, more travel and interaction and knowlege and understanding, and so I value science highly.

    All of the above. If I were to pick a single overarching ideal, though, it would be cultivation-- the improvement of our species and our civilization in qualities we find desirable.
