What standards could a person possibly be held accountable to if they felt no sense of loss or gain by their choices?
I don’t trust the person who merely believes in doing the right thing. I trust the person who feels a sense of gain in their doing of the right thing. I trust the person who feels a sense of loss in their doing of the wrong thing.
I want nothing to do with the one who claims to be acting wholly apart from their self-interest.
Nothing is more frightening than the idea of an entity that feels no sense of loss or gain in the way they treat people.
Neutrality is just as dangerous as negativity.
