Humbled pride is great and can be explained in three words. GOD, Bless, America. Nothing wrong with them and they bring confidence to you and others. The word pride just refers to being proud and having a great feeling of accomplishment or feeling of self satisfaction.

Well my overall opinion is that good or bad is decided in the context of wether it's happy or hurtful.

I see that your context is ethically.

The only correct thing is Universal Happiness, which speaks for itself as to why. Nothing else makes sense to be correct. It all fits in terms of ethics.

How much the Pride challenges Universal Happiness is where its wrong. You mentioned that it brings confidence to others. In a setting where there is Universal Happiness would this even work. Equality is a component in Universal Happiness. Not just the accepted definition of accepting others and perceiving them as equals, but "Robotic Equality".

Robotic equality means everything that is done is the same for all individuals. This doesn't work within
