You see the bloke I'm having this discussion with says there is no such thing as evil. No right or wrong. Hence we must surely not be concerned about child abuse, rape, murder, poisons such as Glyphosate in our food etc etc.

He says all we are doing on this forum is a waste of time.
There is no "External" right or wrong..... No universal judgment on high.

But there is empathy. Or their should be.

By rights, a person should be able to do whatever makes them feel good. Feel happy. But individuals do not live their lives in isolation, the thing that makes one person happy might traumatise another.

Thats why we should at least have a few ground rules to live our lives by.

You shouldn't do anything that might harm another, you don't do something with another person that they don't consent too, and you don't harm the vulnerable.
