Now, to be fair to Christians and brainwashed Americans, the concept that "human life has value" is a rather old one and serves to keep the slaves in line. I'm rather confused and intreagued. Most people would say that communism/socialism is the system that supports the useless unemployed more than capitalism does. Capitalism is the system with a "fend for yourself or die" reputation. When capitalistic nations (such as the US) support the surplus humans, they are attacked for being "communistic". I'm thinking especially of the criticisms of Hilary Clinton for being a "commie" when she was supporting universal healthcare. Okay, that out of the way, I'm curious as to how you tie slave morality into this. I disagree on human life. I don't support a system where I would be sacrificed for the "good of the many". The many are not worth the one. Nor is the one worth the many. I suspect that the whole "good of the one vs. good of the many" issue is a false dichotomy, resting on the (tenuous) conclusion that such a thing as human brotherhood exists. That said, I don't believe in human "rights" either. *Edit* And welcome back, ndrs. Haven't seen you in some time.
