“Honor cultures probably rely too much on shame, but our modern alternative is an epidemic of shamelessness.”
Tamler Sommers, Why Honor Matters

“As you evaluate my argument, resist that urge to come up with abstract hypothetical objections. Compare my examples of honor systems with actual alternatives, not idealized alternatives. Here's an analogy (one that hits a little too close to home for me). Imagine living in a house that badly needs repair. As you compare contractors, you should choose the one who can actually make the house better, not the one who can best imagine the blueprint of a perfect house. The same thinking applies to improving society.”
Tamler Sommers, Why Honor Matters
