Re: Why is dog fighting morally wrong?

Just out of curiosity, what is your opinion of, say, turkey vs chicken? That is, are they equally ethical, or is turkey farming more ethical because you kill fewer animals per pound of meat? And if turkey is more ethical, is beef more ethical in spite of cows being smarter than turkeys? How many tu...

Re: Why is dog fighting morally wrong?

The system I presented/proposed is one of iterating through justification to permit or restrict the action. I glossed over a lot, to be sure. The tree would look something like this (though even this is grossly simplified): All human actions are permitted Except when: ⋅  The action causes ...

Re: Why is dog fighting morally wrong?

Because of pain and death. Robots, to the best of our knowledge, do not experience pain or death. This presupposes a default of pain and death being bad, of course. Justification would be needed to accept pain and/or death as morally good (eg. defending others from pain and death, pain of surgery, e...

Re: Why is dog fighting morally wrong?

Because dog fighting and gambling go hand in hand. Because without gambling dog fighting would most likely not be a thing. Dogs are valuable things. Using them to earn money in dog fighting is one thing, but throwing them away just for the sport of it is another. The cost-benefit is just not there, ...

Re: Why is dog fighting morally wrong?

Like anything in morals and ethics, it becomes clearer if we think of the system rather than the specifics. Morals should be permissive in nature. By which I mean that anything should be allowed until a case is made to justify restricting the behavior. This gets muddy when you get into the interacti...
