Is loyalty a virtue?

Think about these three examples:

  • A job that you've had for years, but no longer pays as well as competing companies would.
  • A brand whose products you loved, but whose offerings have recently become subpar.
  • A close friend who used to be kind and understanding, but now insults and belittles you every chance he gets.


How many of these three things deserve your loyalty? Why?

tynamite's avatar Loyalty to people is something that I believe in as we should all be trustworthy people. If you can't be real to yourself, you shouldn't expect people to be real to you.

If a job I've had for years stopped paying as much as competing companies, I would have no hesitation for changing jobs, as I have no reason to be loyal to the company. One has to understand that to an employer, I would be easily replaceable, expendable, and that a well paying job isn't as easy to grasp as I am expendable.

I would stop buying a brand that has become sub-par.

For the third one, it's very likely that the friend is jealous. So I would ask what the deal is, and if I don't get an answer, I'd cut the friend off.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
