  1. The Tweet asked if we were hosting a poly event and had this URL, so I’m announcing that OrlandoPoly meets the first Sunday of every month in Orlando Florida. more details

  2. Let’s consider the following maxim:
    Every person A ought to hate all people who act in ways prohibited by A’s ethical standards.

    The interesting question is, if all people in the world acted according to this maxim, would the world really be a better place to live?

    If all people did, then the world would be filled with hatred.

    I propose an alternate maxim:
    Every person should live their lives by their own ethical standards, regardless of what others do or believe. Hate should be applied sparingly, to those who directly harm ourselves or our loved ones.

    Universalize this maxim, and you will see a much more reasonable level of hatred in the world.

  3. Sorry I should have given some context – I was responding to the “everybody hates cheaters” bit.
