Re: Quibbles the quibbler
Can you think of a moral that is for personal benefit?

I will just pop in out of the blue (not having followed the thread) and say that they are all for personal benefit. We practice and enforce moral conduct because we realize that doing so is directly beneficial to ourselves. Being part of a group is essential to human survival and maintaining the group and one's relationship to it are paramount.

All behaviour is driven by assessment of personal benefit.
