good and evil

It’s important to note that social pragmatism is antithetical to advanced societal order.

Criminal cultures run on primitive social pragmatism.  They view morality as naive at best, and idiotic at worst.

If you look at the nice places to live in the world, you’ll find they run on mostly on public order, rather than the loose, shadowy, shifting alliances that typify the criminal world.

I think this is primarily because national wealth/strength depends on public order and specialization of labor to sustain complex logistics, production, military, and research efforts.

In a chaotic world, everyone must be generalists, and technology requires order and specialization, above all else.
