For a long time, I’ve had problems with phrases that treat Pride as a good thing. i.e. “Take some pride in X” “Where is your pride?” “Have you no pride?”
I realize that in the past, Pride may have had many positive evolutionary values, but in modern times, we have more efficient and accurate ways to test for usefulness and prowess among our population.
From what I can tell—this is actually just the flip-side of shame. Shame is often used to coerce people into (or out of) certain behaviours.
“Where is your shame?”, “Have you no shame?”
