Bill I challenge you not to get off that easily. Can YOU fill in the rest
of the sentence - as it occurs to YOU now?
Personally I do not care if we call these things self-evident truths,
categorical imperatives, fundamental principles, moral values or little
green distinctions so long as we share some meaning in the matter. In
saying that I agree the barrier that *self-evident truths* may pose and
see similar barriers in each and every alternative. I just think they
define a society whatever we call them and, to go back to the origin of
the enquiry, are the force that can [could] constrain the phylum
corporation to evolve within bounds society chooses.
Thanks Bill for your contributions to this thread.
