    So Hi there!

    I'm thinking that you think that ethics are personal decisions ? Not sure what else to make of your intro. Hope to see more of this thought on the boards...

    I've only ever encountered one coherent moral philosophy: the non-aggression principle (NAP). It's the one I choose to adhere to personally. I think the logic of it is available universally. Some folks choose it, others do not. I hope that answers your question, as I am not entirely clear what you are asking.
    If you believe that man is good, there is no need for government. If you believe that man is bad, you dare not create one.

    So you and Ayn Rand? Or am I missing something?

    I do like some of what Rand had to say.

    There is an entire discipline within philosophy that studies ethics.

    Don't assume that I'm not familiar with them. It's just that I've found their flaws.
