should you apply the same logic to every situation or should you use different logic depending on situation so that you can arrive to the conclusions you want ?
for example during slavery you would say that we have an inalianable god given right to freedom. but not the slaves.
its convenient to not not use the same logic when thinking of what rights the slaves should have as you do when thinking about your rights.
we do that today also. we dont think that people in other countries have the right to not be bombed by us. but we think we have the right not to be bombed by them.
we say killing is wrong. unless we're killing iraqis then its cool.
does anybody feel like when we say something we should mean it ?
