Re: The Bulger Case Re-emerges & "People Justice"

How does that not fall under "are we raising kids who don't understand our morality?" Because in my opinion, parents raise their children - not society, thus I make this distinction. Since I have no kids, I am not in charge of raising any children. My influence would be more of a societal...

Re: The Bulger Case Re-emerges & "People Justice"

The reason people care about this case is because there was a malicious intent in ten year olds . I don't really know what you mean by "comprehension", but this is such a horrifying event because people didn't expect little kids would be capable of this kind of violent crime. When childre...

Re: Is ill will ever acceptable?

I subscribe to the 'How to win friends and influence people' code of ethics in my public life ( a great book for anyone who deals with the public routinely - even though written in 1934 the advice it offers remains contemporary- at least it works for me...)

Re: Rationality vs Morality

The question seems to presume a preset value of both variables. Why the sum $25k? What if the amount were $1. It could still logically be argued that this would still benefit you in an immediate way. What if it were $.50 or even a penny? The same logic that dictates going for the money versus puppie...

take it a bit outside of context, and you will see that as long as you make logical decisions in order to follow some goal (or goals), you are no more free than a computer program created to follow its goals. it is only when you are doing something completely illogical and unreasonable, you are tru...

Re: "Freedom" Discussion

Does it disturb anyone else that many of the posted 'freedom' thoughts are violent in nature? I mean, I have to drive to work here in a couple of hours and apparently what is between me and utter motor-vehicle chaos is a thin veneer of civilized behavior that many are tempted to forgo.
