How old are you, roughly will do.

Because in the old days people had values, more values than you actually see today, we have so much more education available to us than in the old days, but still, people do so much more stupid sh*t now, than before.

to me, "old-fashioned" simply means one adheres to a previous version of matrix programming.
You lost me here. Matrices come in many forms: One, two, three, four dimensions and a theoretical fith. Behind each variable or constant in the mentioned possible matrices is a Tableau and those drill further and further down as well...

I simply place a greater value on my conduct toward others, than what I get in return, which is a very old fashioned thing. I value my honour, another old fashioned thing. These are not negatives.

You hear it all the time, "I'm an old-fashioned woman", "I'm an old-fashioned man." Why are people proud of that?
To me, "old-fashioned" simply means one adheres to a previous version of matrix programming.
Those who think that being "old-fashioned" is something to be proud of generally seem to think that people were more moral in the past. Therefore, holding onto the morals and values of the past is commendable.
When I think of "old-fashioned" values, the Dred Scott decision comes to mind.
The court held that Scott was not free based on his residence in either Illinois or Wisconsin becausehe was not considered a person under the U.S. Constitution–in the opinion of the justices, black people were not considered citizens when the Constitution was drafted in 1787. According to Taney, Dred Scott was the property of his owner, and property could not be taken from a person without due process of law.
That's the epitome of "old-fashioned" values to me.
Why are people proud to identify with things like that?
"Old-fashioned" values and morals were not better than that of today. It's simply a previous version of matrix programming.
I believe the duty of all of us is to eliminate all matrix programming from our lives. That is the only path to freedom in my opinion.
