Re: Alternative Globalisation

As communications increase the world gets smaller and the population gets bigger. In all cases in the human past where this has happened it has been met by one of three things; 1,Annihiliation of one culture by another, 2, the enslavement of one culture by another, 3, or the absorbsion, integration ...

Re: What could make morality objective?

A Lucubration Down the Rabbit Hole 1 We humans co-create the reality of which we are part. 2 Therefore, we humans co-create ourselves. 3 Then who creates or co-creates the 'us' (the humans) who do the co-creating? 4 It must be some sui generis thing. Ah - it must be a god. (5 Btw, why do we need to...

Re: What could make morality objective?

And I've already explained to him that "ought" in the sense of a "prerequisite for x" or "precondition for x" doesn't work anyway, because while it's certainly the case that there are prerequisites or preconditions for consequent states to obtain, there's no objective prescription for a particular ...

Re: Basic Human Rights
