Different cultures do not have completely alien mindsets. They simply define innate values that all humans possess. Every one of us knows what utang na loob is, as well as African ubuntu. Some languages just don't have words for them.

On willpower, I find vegetarianism helps. Self-restraint for the greater good can be a powerful motivator, and that way you can set yourself an example.

Crazen, you're like the most Zen guy I know.

UFO, vegetarianism is in no way for the greater good, it is merely a choice. Willpower requires belief that you can do it, not some sort of forcing yourself.

The internet is a magical place, where linguistic and dialectic possibilities are endless. Why not embrace those variations and see where they lead you.

You mindless, bungling imbecile![/skeletor] I never implied vegetarianism was inherently good, that was only an example. Also, willpower is basically both of those things. And how is a choice different from anything for the greater good? Do you have no choice in that? QUESTION BARRAGE!
