What is your favorite principle of bushido?, or if many or all, list them and give me your thoughts, remember there is 7 total. And if you have a favorite why did you choose it over the rest, why is it your favorite?

Yeah Honor would be my first choice then honesty, then courage. Those three are crucial to the code in my opinion.

as I do not see Loyalty running rampant in the world this day, outside of the Band of Brothers, I will select it as my choice. they are all equally important, however, as the concept cannot exist without all components intact.
