Never just accept the norms

There are three things I care more about than anything else;

  1. achieving happiness
  2. the discussion and reflection of social norms
  3. animal rights

No 1 is my goal in life
No 2 is my challenge
No 3 is my sorrow

Try it, is be surprised if you don’t start reflecting just a little more.

Another good little test that’s been made on this subject:
