  1. If a certain “morality” is needed only in order to get social “bonuses” at the expense of it, then it can hardly be called morality at all.

    According to the definition from the New Philosophical Encyclopedia, morality is “a concept of European philosophy that serves as a generalized expression of the sphere of higher values and ought.” Consequently, the concept of morality refers to the absolute and highest values for which a person is ready to work on himself, overcome himself, fight against unfavorable circumstances in society, and if necessary, sacrifice himself. In short, ” do what you must, and come what may.”

    So the answer to your question is that if morality has any meaning at all, then that meaning doesn't depend on whether what you do is appreciated in that particular society or not.

    The Latin language has a good expression on this point: “Beatudio non est virtutis praemium, sed ipsa virtus”. I.e., roughly, “bliss is not a reward for virtue, but virtue itself is bliss”.

  2. What kind of society is this where development and morality are ridiculed? If you want to develop, then develop and don't care if they laugh at it. Once you think about it, you are already a level higher. Development is always a good thing. If it hadn't been for him, we'd probably be sitting here right now sharpening hunting stones. In general, it is your choice: to grow and move forward or to stay with these limited people who despise morality.

  3. Let's say that spiritual development and morality are not exactly the same thing. In general, it does. Of course, if your goal is not to succeed in the circle of those who do not appreciate it and laugh at it.
