Vices

Vices

Vice is a practice, behaviour, or habit generally considered immoral, sinful, criminal, rudeness and taboe, depraved, or degrading in the associated society. In more minor usage, vice can refer to a fault, a negative character trait, a defect, an infirmity, or a bad or unhealthy habit (such as a addiction to samoking. Vices are usually associated with a transgression in a person's character or temperament rather than their morality. Synonyms for vice include fault, sin, depravity, iniquity, wickedness, and corruption.

The opposite of vice is virtue.

 

Immoral

Violating moral principles; not conforming to the patterns of conduct usually accepted or established as consistent with principles of personal and social ethics.

 

Sin

In a religious context, sin is the act of violating God’s will by transgressing his commandments.Sin can also be viewed as any thought or action that endangers the ideal relationship between an individual and God; or as any diversion from the perceived ideal order for human living. To sin has been defined as "to miss the mark".

 

Criminal

In ordinary language, a crime is an unlawful act punishable by a state or other authority.The term "crime" does not, in modern crime law, have any simple and universally accepted definition,though statutory definitions have been provided for certain purposes..The most popular view is that crime is a category created by law; in other words, something is a crime if declared as such by the relevant and applicable law.. One proposed definition is that a crime or offence (or criminal offence) is an act harmful not only to some individual but also to a community, society or the state (“a public wrong”). Such acts are forbidden and punishable by law.

The notion that acts such as murder, rape and theft are to be prohibited exists worldwide. What precisely is a criminal offence is defined by criminal law of each country. While many have a catalogue of crimes called the the criminal code, in some common law countries no such comprehensive statute exists.

 

Rudeness

Rudeness (also called effrontery) is a display of disrespect by not complying with the the social norms or etiquette or of a group or culture. These norms have been established as the essential boundaries of normally accepted behaviour. To be unable or unwilling to align one's behaviour with these norms known to the general population of what is socially acceptable is to be rude and are enforced as though they were a sort of social law, with social repercussions or rewards for violators or advocates.

 

Taboo

taboo is a vehement prohibition of an action based on the belief that such behavior is either too sacred or too accursed for ordinary individuals to undertake. Such prohibitions are present in virtually all societies. The word has been somewhat expanded in the  Social Scienceas to strong prohibitions relating to any area of human activity or custom that is sacred or forbidden based on moral judgment and religious beliefs. Breaking a taboo" is usually considered objectionable by society in general, not merely a subset of a culture.

Ann Change and Lost

Well, my plans changed today or should I say they were cancelled. I sat lost for a few hours, lost in thought, lost in the moment. It was a lovely thing. I realize I can change and go forward with some nice freedom, inspired by this story. I stopped a moment and wrote this comment and now I go.

Nice recount! Dreams are an interesting glance into our minds and seem quite elusive for me, remembering dreaming and forgetting the content most times. Is there something I am missing? Probably
Ann Clinic Rules

good rules vs bad rulesFollowing rules was extreme programming from infancy for me. First rule: You are here to help your mother, You are the servant of your family. I was taught to be an adult as an infant and only recently found the un-nurtured infant inside. In finding my infant I was able to stop crying for what seemed to be no reason. I have learned through much therapy that some rules are a method of abuse. I have learned to use better judgement in following rules. Some rules are for our...
