Principles guarding the world; principles guarding mankind

These principles are twofold, namely:
(1) Shame to do evil, hῑri;
(2) Fear to do evil, ottapa;
Moral shame and moral dread are the immediate causes of morality. Lacking them, relationship between the sexes would go awry so much so that there cannot prevail in the human world any sense of propriety between mother and son, or between brother and sister and humanity would sink to the level of animals, bringing about utter chaos.
