SandraS-

That also sounds reasonable, a bit like the ten commandments, actually. Sort of like how they had to stick a useless commandment like "Honour thy mother and father" (it needs to be earned, not just granted) in before "You shall not murder".


I would argue that the first four commandments are pretty useless actually. Would have been nice if a couple of them were outlawing slavery, rape and the subjugation of women, but apparently you can't have everything.
