If one lives very strictly in line with the Dhamma (dot all i's and cross all t's) it means giving up not only lust, greed and similar but also other important things that matter a lot ..
Such as networking .. online or offline .. (networking leads to mental proliferation)
Such as knowing/cultivating people who might come in handy later on .. being more nice than necessary to the neighborhood doctor .. because one might get corona ..
Being nice to nasty friends and relatives .. who knows when one might become unemployed and need help .. can't tell them they are right wing pigs .. have to nod when they espouse their wish to commence a pogrom against Muslims or something equally disgusting.
and so on ..
Basically being Dhammic means tossing out socializing and throwing all babies out with the social bath water (the babies that help us to survive in a society)
In your experience and understanding does the Dhamma protect and shield those who accept it with complete trust, faith, saddha?
Edit Add - The question comes up from contemplation of the phrase "wholesome morality".
The rewards of virtue
[Ananda:] "What, O Venerable One, is the reward and blessing of wholesome morality?"
[The Buddha:] "Freedom from remorse, Ananda."
"And of freedom from remorse?"
"And of joy?"
"And of rapture?"
"And of tranquillity?"
"And of happiness?"
"And of concentration?"
"Vision and knowledge according to reality."
"And of the vision and knowledge according to reality?"
"Turning away and detachment, Ananda."
"And of turning away and detachment?"
"The vision and knowledge with regard to Deliverance, Ananda."
