    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Do you believe that each person can have their own morals? If a rapist feels that rape is moral, and the victim feels that it's immoral, can they both be right?
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    Sociological Theories To Explain Deviance
    Look, dude, you can't enter a sociological debate and expect others to accommodate sociopaths. Sociopaths have no empathy and you want to discuss their place in a moral debate? A sociopath is a monkey wrench in any moral, justice or other sociological system. You're trying to use crazy people to argue regarding a moral compass.

    In sum, attempting to incorporate the unincorporatable is nonsense.

    Well, that may be true with some things, but there have to be some universal bounds of reason right?

    The OT teaches form of morality that most would find abominable if applied to modern society.

    my understanding of it, though i'm far from perfect:

    morality is the acceptance of a few key concepts.

    1. we all benefit from a stable society, and we all have a role in contributing to the stability of society. stable society is the giant on whose shoulders we all stand. agriculture, medicine, and pretty much every technological innovation would not have happened without civilization.

    2. other people's wants and needs sometimes supersede our own.

    3. it's a net positive to be good to others even when doing so earns you no personal benefit.

    I was simply arguing your point that people know right from wrong when clearly they do not in many cases.

    Sorry if that's too broad.

    Mostly on the punishment side.

    That's before we were all suppose to love each other and forgive.

    That's way too broad. 1/1m sociopaths does not constitute "many cases" without an intellectually dishonest change of context.
