I’ve put this here because I’m mainly interested in what determines another LHP person’s ethical framework, where by LHP I mean the definitions posted here.
Can values and ethics even meaningfully exist, if we hold nothing as higher than ourselves?
I have my own take on this but want to read some shared thoughts before I spam the thread up with my own, I think that the questions raised by Iam Incide here are worth considering in the wider sense of why we have the values and ethical codes we do.
If having a child, then killing them in a really brutal, slow, painful, degrading, and horrible way would guarantee you absolute power - would you do it?
If someone doesn’t do what you want them to do, how long would you torture them for? Would you include their children and grandchildren?
Would you set traps for people, to discover if they’re worth your time?
Those are just some ideas to get started, I don’t think there’s a “right” or “wrong” answer to this fwiw, I just want to hear some ideas, general thoughts?
