Interesting ted talk on moral values (in Links)
Now head on over to Zimbardo on Lucifer and compare the highest values of Dumb/stan to The 7 Social Processes that Grease the Slippery Slope. ;)

I've watched that one Rod, and unfortunately I got a lot of unpleasant responses to that one when I send it to my friends.

I dunno. I mean, I think the guy oversimplifies a bit and maybe picks poor examples, but I think the points he raises are valid. Moral expertise, and using science to determine ideal moral outcomes doesn't seem outrageous. What arguments did your friends have against that particular talk?
Bast, I have no idea what you just said....

Rod, I had the exact same reaction as you. I agreed with his principles, but his examples were pretty bad.

That talk was really interesting actually. It's part of the reason I like to read discussions on CB because there are a lot of people hear who hold views that I would not normally encounter in my life.
It's always better to understand where someone is coming from.
