"Morality is completely subjective"

I agree. It may be sad, and too much for some people to accept, but the fact of the matter is true. Bushido was not "be nice to everyone and help the weak." It was "do what you're told." If you're told to go kill babies, and you spare them, then you are dishonorable.

The concepts of honor, chivalry, and right and wrong vary from culture to culture, due to differences in priorities, beliefs, and values.

To me, universal rights and wrongs are, in reality, nothing more than romantics spouted by people who haven't seen the reality of it.

I suppose you could say I'm a realist.

"Chivalry does have it's place among warriors - among the dead and the soon to die, the ineffective and the overzealous."

Well, I guess I don't fall under the category of "Warrior" then, too bad for me.

Still, I'd rather die with honor than to live in the manner you describe.
