What is your highest value? How would a society based on this value look?

Opening Argument

Which value do you hold above all others? Examples of values might include freedom, order, equality, utilitarianism, scientific progress, spirituality and so on.

What would a society that holds your highest value as it's highest value look like in practice? Can you think of any possible problems with such a society?

    I'd say my highest 'value' is bargaining.

    I am one of these people who even in the most dire circumstance would barter to give you my toe to save myself a finger or the other way around depending on whatever I think I need most.

    There are not always winning strategies in life, sometimes it's about losing the better loss... Choosing the lesser evil.

    This is so important to me and I believe that societies that constantly negotiate and bargain about policies and rights and operate on lesser evil basis are the better places to live in. The places in the world that operate on absolutes of any kind or even worse that bargain for the worse outcome are the least pleasant places to live on Earth.
