Live by your values, but don’t force them onto other people.

One of my values in life is never to succumb to mass hysteria, panic, and fear. I wish more people lived like this, but it’s not my job to force everyone to adopt my values. I don’t like complying with stupid rules. To live as I live is a very stupid rule.

As soon as you can, decide your values and live by them.

But know that just because you’re living by your values doesn’t mean that everyone else should live by the same values as you. If you don’t like compliance, it doesn’t make much sense to try and force everyone around you to comply to your values.

Your values are the lines of code running your operating system. Trying to convince someone with completely different values is like trying to write C code in an HTML editor.
