If your ideals are based on logic, no you don't. If you follow your ideals because they are the most logical thing to do, then you aren't doing it because you believe
in any aspect of them. Logic is logic, and if everything you live your life by is done from a completely logical standpoint, you don't have
to have "faith" in anything. It's when you're doing something that contradicts logic and causes you to doubt yourself at all that you need "faith" to continue.
@the stealing thing: From a logical standpoint, it's hypocritical to say "I can steal from others for my own logical benefit, but others cannot do the same to me without being immoral". If you steal from others for a reason that is logical to you, then you can't say that other people have no justification for doing so if you can logically provide justification for yourself performing the action.
