    I don't think any of these particular systems is any "better" or more moral than the others in many ways it doesn't matter how a goverment functions as much as what it's functions are.

    Does that make sense?

    I agree, but certain styles of government make it easier to get favorable functions.

    Second of all: Meters are equally useful in practicality as feet. Both of you here have fallen into a fallacy: that of the familiarity bias. You're more used to feet/vs/meters and such, so it seems much more practical to you.

    I have actually only ever used the imperial system, aside from science classes. The metric system's just a heck of a lot easier to convert between. Like, try converting 1763585 inches to feet. Now convert 13874258745784512457 millimeters to meters. Which one was easier? Yeah, that's the one poor students like me are happy to be able to use.

    Converting is nice, but try cooking when you need some ugly amount of grams of flour.

    Cups are just so much more convinient.

    And measureing height, or litterally anything relative to a person.

    If you're trying to convert Imperial-measurement recipes to metric, then yeah, it'd be annoying. But I'm sure metric recipes use round numbers just as much as imperial ones do. And measuring height isn't that bad. For example, I'm like 6'1 in imperial, so I'd be like 1 meter and 85 centimeters. Or 185 centimeters. That's easy enough to remember.
