no_apologies: (politically incorrect = honest)
This is a continuation of what I started a little while ago, a day after an admirer of John Maynard Keynes (British economist) messaged me some incredibly foolish claims; that they didn't matter, and that "all ideas require force."

Let's go over what he said a bit. All ideas require force. It's as if voluntary ideas, according to him, don't exist at all, or haven't ever existed at all! According to the Keynesian Dolt's incredibly wacky claim, it's as if everyone is forcing anything onto anyone all at once; all party invitations, all of the friendly social gatherings, all of the of plays, movies, tv shows, game developing, and so on being the result from the initiation of aggression, or defensive force.

LOL... If that were true, then humanity wouldn't have evolved to adapt and live together in groups for very long at all. Keynesian Dolt wouldn't have been born. I know I wouldn't have been born, in the year 1984. XD

It's possible that he, in part, did not mean what he said in a literal sense. However, he still rejected the basic fact that good ideas don't require the use of force. He didn't agree with the positive statement that good ideas don't require force.

Did he object to that out of fear, ignorance, or both? I'd say it was both. For some reason, being as free as one can be from aggressive force, and to fully recognize each other as self-owning human beings is scary to him.

Yeah, this is going to get lengthy... )

Ethics: Moral principles that govern a person's behavior or the conducting of an activity. (Synonym terms include: moral code, morals, morality, values, rights and wrongs, principles, ideals, standards [of behavior], value system, virtues, and dictates of conscience)

Etymology definition: "the science of morals," c. 1600, plural of Middle English ethik "study of morals" (see ethic). The word also traces to Ta Ethika, title of Aristotle's work. Related: Ethicist.

Etymology definition of the word moral: mid-14c., "pertaining to character or temperament" (good or bad), from Old French moral (14c.) and directly from Latin moralis "proper behavior of a person in society," literally "pertaining to manners," coined by Cicero ("De Fato," II.i) to translate Greek ethikos (see ethics) from Latin mos (genitive moris) "one's disposition," in plural, "mores, customs, manners, morals"
