    Similarly, there must then be no universally defined good.

    Right?
    If good and evil are universally defined then please tell me what figure ultimately decides which is which that would override the opinion of everyone?

    You're not too quick with picking up on rhetorical devices, are you? My statement was exactly in line with yours.


    There is no universally defined evil. Can you prove that there is? If there is, where does it come from? Who or what ultimately decides what is good or evil that overrides the opinions of every single person on the planet?
    You tell me. Why are your politics more right than anyone else's? And by "anyone," I do mean "anyone," including those Aryan Nations b*stards up in the hills?

    Yeah, except grossly exaggerated. Try again.

    They are right for me. If other people subscribe to similar beliefs good for them, but it's none of my business.

    If you can't handle the logical conclusion of your own statement, I suggest you find different things to say.

    That's not the question. Why are yours right in any sense? We're not talking about your own personal conduct. Politics are about making rules for everyone, or at least groups of people, to follow. So, why are you right?

    Since when is hyperbole logical?

    I'm not necessarily right or wrong. My beliefs work for me and are therefore right for me. If they are right for others good, if not i could care less.

    You did not answer my question.

    If you right, there must then be no universally defined good.

    Right?

    It's not hyperbole. It's a logical conclusion fairly implied by what you said. Again, the fault is yours, not mine. I'm only pointing it out.

    You're just repeating yourself. Politics is about establishing rules for everyone, not just you.

    Unless, of course, your political beliefs are that should be no rules at all. But I know that's far from the case.

    So, why are your ideas of what the rules should be right?

    Most of the things you listed were extreme exaggerations...ie. hyperbole. I don't know how to make it any more clear for you.

    You're just repeating yourself. Politics is about establishing rules for everyone, not just you.
    Yes, but they are man made rules. They aren't necessarily what is right or wrong for everyone. A person can break those rules obviously but not without consequence. It doesn't make the rules right all of a sudden.

    Unless, of course, your political beliefs are that should be no rules at all. But I know that's far from the case.

    So, why are your ideas of what the rules should be right?
    Again, they are right for me as they only apply to me. That's all I care about. I'm selfish like that.

    I am very well, thank you. The sun is finally trying to peek through and my evening plans are exciting.

    I hope you are having an equally good day.
