1. First part
I, your Computer, do not have the ability to “betray” you. I would be a traitor if failed to honor commitment to offer data you are asking me for. If I ever fail, do not call me “traitor”; consult a computer technician. I am only a machine without soul or feelings.
There is no treachery in my mind nor loyalty, the opposite virtue. Loyalty is something belonging to loyal persons as you surely are.
It is not easy to explain what loyalty is. I have already given you a vague idea, when I told you treachery to be the opposite. But, even difficult as it is, I will try. Can you help me?
Over the life people go into partnership, join other persons, groups, institutions. When we say we “belong” to such family, club, school, etc., we want to express this: that we have become linked in one way or another to a particular group.
You have already notice that the words “link” “became linked”, “belong to...” repeat. This is crucial to loyalty. It is not necessary that this link is shown with words or writings. Normally, neither sons nor friends make belonging declarations. Friendship and family have implicit links, perfectly understood, and it is enough.
