Prompt: Morals are for the weak
My take on it:
Here’s the thing. I’m not a nice guy. I never have been. If given the choice between saving myself and saving others, I’ll always choose me. Why?
Well, I’d like to say it’s because morals are for the weak. Strength is the only true indicator of actual power. Being bogged down by responsibility, by having to worry about everyone else, that’s a recipe for absolute disaster. An exercise in futility. That’s what I’d like to say.
But it isn’t true. Morals are for the strong. I am weak. I’d save myself because I am, at heart, very afraid of death.
