Guru George:
: >Try a change of metaphor and see how it tickles your intuition buds:
: you're shipwrecked, starving hungry, walking along a beach. You see a
: woman roasting a pig. Are you justified in just grabbing the pig
: because her roasting of the pig was an "act of enclosure", and therefore
: a dastardly initiation of coercion?<

: In my opinion this is what is wrong with ethics and morals. Your
: view of life and human consciousness is so narrow--trying to
: explain the splendor of existence with a weenie roast on Gilligan's
: Island. Shame on you.

So the answer to every ethical question is
"it depends on the Cosmic All"?

Not terribly useful as a rule of thumb, I must say.
