Variations of pride
As I look at the world of men, I see Pride. Pride is an interesting thing, it is both negative and positive. Take racial pride, it appears to be viewed by most to be positive, but it is the source of great pain for mankind. The taking pride of ones race is to take pride in something that you had nothing to do with, you were born into it, and to take responsibility for an entire people, for which you can't control. The same is true of most affect attitudes, national, school,etc. An individual's pride is different, you can control your own actions and take responsibility for them, it is independent of others. Individual pride appears to be the only pride worth having, it is the only one you can control and have anything to do with!
