Michael Stuart Kelly Posted April 19, 2014 Share Posted April 19, 2014 On the other hand, we have Moralist who argues that “people who do evil inflict the consequences of their immoral actions on their own offspring.” By this statement I take Moralist to mean that it is appropriate to punish a criminal by executing his son.Francisco,Are you serious?I am astonished by this conclusion.I read your post carefully and I still have no idea how you arrived at it.On the surface, it looks like to me you are misrepresenting Greg's ideas on purpose. Like a smear.However, I believe in your good will, so I have a suggestion. Rather than telling Greg what he thinks, why don't you ask him? And I don't mean ask him leading questions.Here's a suggested question for a start: What do you think about society executing the children of anyone?I don't speak for Greg, but I already know the answer to that. I think anybody who has read him but you does, too.Since you declared categorically to the world that Greg believes society should execute children in order to punish their parents, it's reasonable to ask if he agrees whether society should execute children at all.It's a conceptual hierarchy thing.Michael Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
