Of course, the human mind itself is able to create its own morality and can program its reactions, however, universal moral values allow a person to achieve unity with other people, thus increasing its strength and security. Belonging to the universe inspires one's faith.
The moral subject tries to follow his self-established principles. And if he is also intelligent, in order to achieve unity with other moral people, he tries to bring his principles in accordance with universal moral principles. Universal principles to believe in, while actually invented the principles may be false.
A strong-willed morally upstanding person doesn't wish to be in power or in control. Such a person may be in control and obey someone only because it's necessary and may rule only because there's no other way to be.
Principles are the basis of rational man, while animals are the slaves of instincts. Education, morals, and principles are the three cornerstones of self-respect. Indulging in animal sins and vices, a person loses self-respect and with it the strength of the spirit.
