    Default Imposing your morality on others: Something pretty much everyone approves of

    So my repeated complaint has been that it is silly to make the claim that someone is "imposing their will or morality" on someone else as if that is something bad in and of itself. Unless, you're an anarchist it's not. Everybody agrees with criminal laws and everyone has their pet policies they believe in. All of those are ultimately based in morality and values. Social safety net? Moral basis. Murder? Moral basis. Immigration? Moral basis. Death penalty? Moral basis. You get the idea.

    You believe in choice?
    Do you believe in giving a person a choice to either flee or to kill a person who is a deadly threat when there is a clear way of escape?
    You're imposing morality on society either way as society has to deal with the potential impacts of giving the choice or not giving the choice.

    Mods: meant to put this in philosophy. You can move it if you desire.
