It's funny how similar everyone's answers are. "Kindness, charity, blah blah blah." Honor is a concept of the weak. It's a label they give to self-disserving actions to make them feel good about themselves. "I turned her down because she was drunk. If she still wants to have sex with me when she's sober, then I'll consent." "I confessed to my professor that I cheated on the final. I'll have to re-take the class, but it was worth it."
The weak want to feel good about the things that make them weak. They want to demonize the things that make the strong strong, rather than shed weakness and become strong themselves. What better way than some high-falutin', ill-defined notion of "honor?" Just call the things you do honorable, and call the things you refuse to do dishonorable. Viola! You're a good person!
But you're still weak.
I wonder how many who answered "kindness and rainbows" share their definition of honor with their conpeoples...
Coincidentally, most of my own conpeoples tend to have rather "chairty and lollipops" views of worthiness or honor or whatever. Though naturally, such concepts are typically more common among the lower rungs of society. The upper crust typically value wealth and power. I should probably go ahead and specifically make a conpeoples who share my disregard for "sunshine and unicorn" morality.
This is considered cowardry and terrorism. The word for coward and for terrorist is the same: fochvolut.
Do they have a less-intense word than fochvolut? Because doing something like ratting out your friends to, say, a teacher to save your own hide is cowardly. Using the same word you use for terrorism would be a bit much, though.

Hehehe! That's great. Is that from something?
