A quick question for people who adopt "liberal ethics"
The ethic that everything is permissible, so long as no-one's freedom is violated.
Here's a list of acts that don't violate anyone's free will whatsoever:
- Masturbation in public
- Necrophilia (corpses have no free will, feel no pain)
- Self-harm (their body, their choice to do what they want with it)
- Suicide (same reason as above)
- Destroying the rain forest (plants have no free will)
- Refusing to go to school (you're just exercising your independent freedom, right?)
- Disobeying parents
- Living in the wild, naked and feeding off wild mushrooms, like an animal
- Eating from trash cans
- Refusing to do any work (homework, coursework, paperwork, employment work, housework, etcetera)
Do you condone any of this behaviour? If not, why? They don't violate anyone's freedom. People choose to do those things. If anyone is offended by them, they're just "intolerant", right?
