—Fascinating. It’s going to take me a bit – what a side journey this is – dismantling what my normative ethics are. I’ve only ever taken a few oaths (and my criticism of government officials who participated in Jan 6 stems over their failure of oath as a deep character flaw), one of the few was the Scouting.
So I looked at that, looked at all the Scout pledges in the world (the distinctions are fascinating even though they’re all similar)
Now I’m up to “Codes of Conduct” which has the following master categories:
Not sure where I’ll end up but as you surprised me to saying that I was talking about normatives and ethics, which I didn’t realize, I’ll do some catching up on knowledge I should probably already have.
Then at least I’ll be able to see better what you saw in what I was saying – a step closer to mutual understanding.

amazing. They’re all a little different but similar. Some of the wordings in translation to English are surprising and each culture has a SLIGHTLY different emphasis but they’re all basically compatible
