Throughout its history, human society has already developed certain norms of behavior. True, we all notice that many of them are rather conditional and can not replace morality. For example, respect for parents is expressed in such behavior as recognition of their rights and priority position. Thanks to our grandmothers and grandfathers, fathers and mothers, who invested in us spiritual strength, every day we discovered the world around us, grew up and developed and got the skills of ethical and moral behavior.
It is these dear people who brought up respect for the elders, their age and rich experience, life achievements or mistakes, taught us to recognize the value of those around us, which include not only family members, but also neighbors, friends, colleagues, leaders of local or Of state significance, fellow citizens. The criteria for such behavior include not only the inherent right of every inhabitant of the earth to a humane attitude, but also the authority and status earned by his personal actions.
Politeness on etiquette and lack of tactfulness, which can not be obtained without a long and skillful spiritual education, generate cynicism. Unfortunately, some respect him for his virtue. Why? Because in such a person there is no spiritual foundation that backs and maintains respect for the elders, for those who are worthy of the younger ones and for the whole surrounding world.
Therefore, each of our contemporaries decides who and for what to respect, assessing the actions and actions of others, based on their spiritual education and common worldview. People brought up in formal conditions, on the quest for cynical welfare only for themselves, are always outwardly polite and respectful, but this is very far from the true meaning of this concept. To respect a person means, sincerely, to recognize his high status and merit. This is the right way, giving hope for the future.
