Avoiding contradictions and other inconsistencies certainly requires strength of character, reliable reasonableness and clear evidence.
Upholding true moral integrity is one of the primary duties of every
strong, enlightened leader.
Are you a rent-seeker living in palatial splendour?
Do you control land and other resources mainly for your own benefit?
Do you sometimes sponsor artistic activities mainly to advance your own prestige?
Do you have a private orchestra?
Do you have a large household income?
Do you have considerable private wealth?
Do you have the ability to encourage many persons in a similar position to yourself to support the artistic and moral integrity of persons of considerable talent?
Transferring at least a small part of your wealth to where it would be most beneficial is likely to gain you historical merit if not much renown in posterity.
Moral integrity begins with the fair allocation of resources.
Even if you do not live in palatial splendour, how do you ascertain fairness?
When do you attempt to justify exploitative practices?
When do you ignore abuses?
When do you express poor taste?
How do you reward moral integrity and artistic integrity?
How do you cater to the needs of the public?
How have you enlightened yourself about the costs involved in raising public awareness of enlightenment?
Without enlightenment, there is no moral integrity.
Enlightened success is not just survival or the acquisition of wealth. It is the only way humans can possibly improve the world.
How are you currently attempting to make the world a much better place than it would be without you?
How do you measure your moral integrity?
And how do you usually present your moral integrity on the world stage?
