Well, I think is safe to say that no one is perfectly moral or even immoral. Let's call the Nazi's action an act of contrition.
If calling people boobs and dummies doesn't accomplish your goal I don't know what will.
Well, I have to admit you have me struggling with my idea that morality is always in the individuals best interest. My theology tells me I'm correct, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't throw myself on the grenade.
act of self interest there is. No man is a fool for giving up what he can't keep to gain what he can't lose.
Galenica, wrote, ""ANYTHING made of up humans possesses morality." ??? Then you state that the NAZI's were A-moral which is the opposite of your previous assertion. Please clarify your point. You've lost me." Arguments are always easier to win when you change what the opposition said. I said the Nazi were immoral. They were. Ransom said they were a-moral. Now that you aren't lost any more. If you take the point of view that this life is all there is and there is no greater power out there, then your point about sacrifices your life for others is correct. But if you believe that God is love and that no man shows greater love than that of laying his life down for his brethern, then dying for this is not only moral, it is the greatest..
a american wrote, "just add up the numbers, add in the unemployed who fell off the scale, add back in the disables who were removed from the unemployment list. then compare it to state population, you will see it is correct." I was referring to the generation it will take to recover. It didn't take a generation to recover from the Depression.
"Imagine a state the size of Kentucky or Louisiana not having any jobs. That’s extremely harmful to the long-term future of the country and it will take at least a generation to repair the damage." I would love to see some hard data on this piece of hyperbole.
"Neither governments nor corporations are moral. Morality is distinctly a human quality. I think when Romney talked about corporations being people, he meant “made up of people,” not actual human beings." Anything made up of humans possesses morality. That is why Nazi Germany was immoral and the US was Moral. I believe that CS Lewis contrast was with animals not groups of people but I have only read Mere Christianity once. Chik Fil A was acting morally when it gave money to support the family, not necessarily in its own best interest. It is an interesting phenomenon that acting morally is always in your best interest. God made it that way.
Or you could be like our president and refer to African-American-African's that live in South Africa.
You can't discredit with an ad hominem.
