Caelestis,

"Hardly anyone wants to be murdered, and thus we have created laws against murder primarly to protect ourselves, though perhaps in part because of morality."


Yes.  The fact that we don't want to be murdered shows that we feel it would be an immoral action against ourselves, not just a crime against the functionality of society ... but a crime against an individual.  I don't see my desire not to be murdered following from mere logic or reason, but rather from my more Dionysian side, the seat of my emotions and the sense of what is just and unjust, right and wrong.  Though logic is not a stranger in these type of questions, I just don't see it as the main player on stage.


Stephen.
