Let's try to contain the moral/ethics discussion/debate/shitstorm to one thread so we don't derail others.

Communism is inherently immoral and unethical.

Firearms, as inanimate objects, are more moral than 95% of mankind even when considering the primary function of firearms.

Religions preach morals while most of their "morals" actually are just "these are groups it's OK to kill just because they have a slightly differing opinion on some arbitrary things".

Quests without tanks and tits are pretty much the epitome of immorality.

Smoke weed everyday.

Morals?

Personally, I'm against them.

Plunk a couple of quarters in and they're good to go again. Shit's like Soul Food, and probably just as bad for you.

I'm sorry, I really just wanted to make a joke about Soul Food.

You are correct on everything but the weed. There is nothing immoral about it but it is a stupid thing to do as it burns away your memory.

I prefer the Rorschach approach to morality:
Normal guy
>Protect him
Guy breaks a law. Any law.
>pummel him to death with your fists

This seems like basically a big dumb argument thing.

In quests I generally prefer characters who aren't particularly bound by morality or ethics. But behaving dishonorably is just bad form in all cases.

Well anyone whp knows me knows I don't like violence, but I don't hate people who do. If its what they like, its what they like! As for morality (is that how its spelled?) I'm a very big believer in Karma, but I have the same stance here as I do on violence. I won't hate anybody for who they are, so lets all just keep making quests and having fun! ^.V.^

Way ahead of you.

Anyway, morality and ethics vary from person to person. A being literally given the power to do WHATEVER THEY WANT by GODS is going to be vastly different from ordinary people. A crippled hermit who lives on a pole is going to be even more different from them.

Therefore, there is no concrete morality shared by EVERYONE in the universe.

Thats very true! The part about it varying from person to person I mean.

But having morals be relative is almost (almost, mind you) functionally indistinct from having there be no morals at all.

I would say that there is an absolute set of morals to live by, but people can't agree on precisely what those morals are. One set is right, but we're all scrambling around trying to figure out which one.

....I like italics. Did you notice?

Also, shouldn't this be on the general discussion board?

I think it was made specifically for the shitstorm in Lunar Quest after nobody wanted to use the discussion thread for actual discussion.

No. 51631 ID: b26b9b

This should be in general discussion.

This is morals/ethics specifically to do with quests. Instead of shitting up each discussion or quest thread we do it here.

Personally, I like Kant's ideas on morality.

Yes, the world would not work if we actually followed those ideas, but it's nice to have something we can point to as a moral absolute.

I actually like to point at Kant's deontological morality as an example of Lawful Good, while the subjective consequences-based morality is Chaotic Good.
>>
No. 51686 ID: 99c568

everyone's gonna say or do what feels right to them, so it's kinda pointless to discuss about it.

Eh, I'd say it's kind of hard to really know your own moral stance, considering that the average, everyday chump rarely gets to actually deal with a moral quandary from the position of power. Add to that the fact that most of us are living in areas of the world where certain morals are pretty much enforced for the well being of everyone or whatever. Basically I'm saying the only way you can tell how good or bad you are is by what you did that one time you played Sims. You built four tiny walls around the guy and watched him pee himself to death, didn't you, you monster.

[nitpick] That's "moral status", not moral stance. Moral stance is more or less your take on which acts are good and which acts are evil. ...I think... [/nitpick]

>>361483
>consequences-based morality
Utilitarianism?

Kant, eh? I *think* I'm of a more Aristotalian-Thomistic persuasion myself. ...I think. :| I don't really know enough about A-T thought to say for certain...
