  1. What an interesting word! I think that countries in the past where this was common probably saw some positive consequences of it, though at the same time I think it led to a lot of pain and conflict as well, when some leader(s) thought his or their honor having been violated somehow. One example might be ancient Iceland, where I am under the impression that focus on honor caused vendetta. Though, then again one might argue that vendetta and revenge are dishonorable things. In any case, an interesting word! 🙂
