    Default Morality and Logic

    This is a game.

    Take the opposing view of one of your moral beliefs and make a convincing argument for why it's right.

    Ready?

    Set.

    GO!

    Slightly OT: For some reason it's always easier for me to argue what I don't believe than what I do believe...why is that?

    Okay anyway...

    *begins building argument*

    Are you ENFP?

    Anyway, I'll only chip in if I feel like it *doesn't follow rules*. I often find myself in debates for some stupid reason, and I could usually do a much better job arguing against my own position than my opponent is doing. Makes the whole thing seem pointless.

    You should always respect your society and it rules, because they exist for a reason. They exist for your well-being. You should be glad to have grown up in a welfare society. You didn't have to pay for school, you get free medical services and you have almost total freedom in your life. To show your gratitude you need to work hard until you are sixty.

    Hmm, this is an impossible exercise for me.

    The only moral stance I really have is that everyone should be 100% hedonistic (factoring in long-term goals/social consequences and everything else).

    Kin-selection should take care of everything else.
