Re: Morality

Concerning animals: Ken writes that People don't generally apply morality to animals. This is as usual a matter of definition. To me morality is a set of rules of conduct and animals have those also. Most have for instance instincts that prevent them to eat their offspring but animals that live in ...

Re: Morality

Very few people have the balls to take subjective morality to it's natural conclusion and those that do are, typically, viewed as psychopaths or sociopaths. But they are at least honest. What about the problem of taking Objective morality to it's natural conclusion? Ken Which conclusion is that Ken...

Re: Morality

I want you to picture, for a moment, a world in which any act that is done is defined as good or bad based solely on the whim of either the majority OR those with enough power to impose their best interest ( Hollywood for example). If such a world did exist, how would it be any different than the w...

Re: Morality

The difference in morality being subjective as opposed to objective is clear: Justification. An act that is based on a subjective morality can be justified. Mao believed himself/believed it justified to allow 10 million deaths. Stalin believed it justified to kill millions of people because they we...
