  1. @Olezhk, Probably not always, who knows. But still, a person should try to act according to his conscience, if of course he has it. It is better to make a sincere mistake because of your misunderstanding than to knowingly do things that are not acceptable to you (making excuses: I was told so, ordered to do it, or I do it like everyone else).

  2. I don't remember who said that “Righteousness is not Rightness.” You must first listen to yourself: your heart and conscience, and then try to do so. Does it matter to a strong and unflappable person what others will think of him, especially the crowd and cattle? All these rules, laws, traditions, rituals are invented by people, the rules are wrong, the laws are criminal, the traditions are outdated, and the rituals are ineffective. You need to act in such a way that you are not ashamed of yourself and God, and pay less attention to external tinsel. This does not mean that I urge you to unnecessarily annoy other people or not follow the rules that are not shameful to follow (not zapadlo). Do everything except what your conscience does not allow.

  3. Correctness is compliance with everyday rules and everyday conventions of behavior, that is, norms of the lowest order. For example, a person who behaves correctly, says “hello!” when they meet, washes their hands before eating, sleeps in bed instead of on the floor, and walks dressed instead of undressed. The extension of the concept of “correctness” to the group norm is a property of children's and adolescent subcultures (“he does not behave like us and therefore incorrectly”). But what is interesting is that it is precisely those people who tend to follow neither the law nor morality in their relations with the outside world who fetishize correctness, for example, criminals who have “concepts” that say “how to do it correctly”.

    There is also a psychological aspect of the concept of “correctness” – in relation to the norm, it is used by people who are inclined to organize their space and experience (pedants). Such people do not tolerate the slightest violation of the norms of everyday life and etiquette, they can identify correctness and “order”. But in society they are needed, from their midst they can come out downright ideal servants of the law (policemen) or all sorts of guards, vigilantes, foresters, and so on.

  4. Let's continue to wonder together. It turns out that the disease of society can be defined. It is diagnosed as a disease by signs. And the most important of them are the norms of correctness. They are symptoms of health. For example? Relation to the color of pants and the hierarchy built in accordance with it / color.
