Re: Building a good Ethical theory

prof We already have very elaborate morals and ethics, just look them up, and we should discuss the aspects you think need changed. No need in inventing the wheel all over. You write: "We already have very elaborate morals and ethics" We do?? And you find that they - as does BASIC ETHICS - systemat...

Re: Building a good Ethical theory

Okay, so I have wasted all this time learning grammar, syntax and spelling (clearly obsolete) when I could have learned, instead, to triangulate on shit to blow up from space. Possibly my last mistake. :) Skip - I must respond to some of our earlier conversation. Kinda difficult when a thread has r...

Re: Building a good Ethical theory

And when we do learn from history? When do we learn from history? There have always been some individual who could see what was wrong and which path ought not to be taken, and every one of them was branded An Enemy of the People * - though a few were rehabilitated, even lionized [posthumously, of c...

Re: Building a good Ethical theory

Skip: You need to educate at least one generation of voters - - - free from the corporate influence - - - before there is any chance of electing a Kucinich (my age, size and convictions) and that's just not going to be allowed on the large scale. You'll have to do it subversively, in community schoo...

Re: Building a good Ethical theory

from prof to me: Your questions seem to be more about applied ethics than about the theory itself. http://www.myqol.com/wadeharvey/PDFs/BASIC%20ETHICS.pdf That's okay. Does that mean you have studied it, and that you like the theory? I have reviewed some of your earlier threads on the subject, going...

Re: Building a good Ethical theory

The people who make a fresh start will need to co-operate more than western people, and particularly Americans - are currently in the habit of doing, and in order to co-operate, they'll need a core concept of what it means to be human and how the individual is related to the community.

Re: Hope is...

I "HOPE" that when it's all done and dusted in the end the one thing that still remains is love. Yeh I just liked the title of the thread so I expressed something I normally keep to myself.

Re: Building a good Ethical theory

What is the relationship between 'Building a good Ethical theory' and building, or re-building, human society? I only ask this because prof suggested that my interest was geared more to applied ethics than theoretical ethics. Also Skip's response regarding the current agenda being set by corporate i...

Re: Building a good Ethical theory

The hope I see is a little farther down the road and the road gets a lot rougher before it levels out again.
Don't you need to have 'hope' built in from the start?
