Which is worse, being disloyal to your country or disloyal to a friend?
I think it would really depend on what you are being disloyal about. Can you give an example?
I suppose friends come first but if you knew your friend was planning a terrorist attack and you didn't report it, then being disloyal to your country would be worse in this case.
On the otherhand, if you knew your friend was cheating on his taxes ......?
It's worse to be disloyal to your country.
Good question. However I am a bit curious as to why you said friend rather than family. Geee, let me think...
Because the family thing is obvious to me.
Why did you think I said friend?
Its worse to be disloyal to your friend. Countries were created when humanity was merely tribes fighting each other for the best land/resources/treasure. In this day and age they are merely damaging relics of a bygone era. I have no more connection to someone in Alabama than I do someone in England.
I see the elevation of personal relationships above the protection of society to be a shallow thing.
Does that include your personal relationship with God?
No answer? Why did you think I said friend?
To make it a tougher question of course.
Separate names with a comma.
