Sargon goes on and on about principles but then his own principles are entirely tautologically defined - - like "morals exist for the purpose of minimizing suffering". Uh, maybe they exist and minimize suffering, but what sort of imperative is there for it? Fucking nothing, you might as well argue it's because God says so. It's such a ridiculous conceit anyway, to try and sort out your goals in an order of importance as if that automatically puts them in the order of urgency. It's fundamentally nonpragmatic. And then he goes on about Aristoteles. Fuck, me.
