Evolution into Bad Conscience

With the rise of slave morality, which values traits like humility, obedience, and self-denial, guilt takes on a new form. It shifts from an external debt to an internalized bad conscience.

Internalization of Guilt

Individuals start to feel guilty not just for failing to repay debts or breaking laws, but for having thoughts and desires that conflict with societal norms. This is bad conscience.

Example:

A person might desire wealth and power but feels guilty because slave morality deems these desires as selfish and wrong. This guilt is internalized; they start to see themselves as morally flawed.
