Why I Am Not a Utilitarian

Text Size : [+] | [-]

Why I am not a utilitarian. Some negatives are immoral and others are not. We remember bad decisions for a time. We remember immoral ones for a lifetime. Utilitarianism depends on being able to unpack all things to their simplest essences. But practically speaking, we cannot. We are not binary. We are bound up not in ends, but in means, in giving consideration and dignity to all aspects of our humanity, not only what we can classify as "valid" or "invalid" in syllogistic terms. Our sensibilities are not binary. But they are not for nothing.
