Re: Ethics (Pasti)

P: Creating such concepts,even in a very rough form, is entirely different from the next step which is upholding and imposing these concepts.

No, it is not. It is especially not in the case of ethics. Take your jet airplane, for example. Can it be created absent the laws of physics?

Tell you what. Let's make the equation as simple as possible. It's just you and me in the world and we happen to live next to each other -- within spitting distance, so to speak.

What is the first ethical rule you propose? No spitting, of course. Why do you propose it? What motivation do I have in agreeing to it? What is my motivation for standing by my agreement?
