"Fire in a crowded theater" has been used by censorship advocates for decades, but not only did the quote never carry the weight of law, it was uttered in the single biggest mistake the supreme court ever made-a ruling that has long since been overturned.

If you think the notion to slap cutesy epigrams on top of photographs of kittens originated with the internet, think again. Deranged cat pictures have been around since the early days of photography.

Ironically, in my inbox, the message notifying me of this post on Google+ is followed by a Google advertisement about how I could advertise with AdWords.

Woke up just now with an overwhelming sense of existential dread at my own mortality. Honestly, I thought I'd finally outgrown this.

Today is not going to be a good day.

Since the way more recent marketing-to-children documentary brought me to this page, I thought I'd comment: I don't think getting 'over' it ever really happens. I think the closest thing to that is to simply accept it as much as possible - proactively remind oneself that one is mortal, that one could end at any time. Learn to live with that reality instead of essentially avoiding it through one's entire life. Shrug That's the approach I've been trying to take anyway, and I think it helps make me a generally better human being.

Just walked in the door and my sister was watching Game of Thrones (which she has finally decided to start following). She says this to me as I'm walking in:

Her: "It's a horrible, horrible show. They kill children and rape people and..."

Me: "Do you like it?"

Her: "Yes."

Looking for folks to share their thoughts on retributive justice. Tagging some people whose input I would find especially valuable.

Consider this scenario: A man stabs a couple of children in a crowd. People start chasing after him, catch him, and start kicking him to death. A woman intervenes by throwing her body over the man, taking the brunt of the assault.

Were these people justified in their response? If not, what would have been a better way to have handled the situation?

Is retributive justice ever justified? Please elaborate on this as much as you're willing.

It's not clear to me why precommitting would influence one's evaluations of reality. (Beyond the obvious slew of biases, but we're ignoring that in this thread anyway.)

It's also fortunate that there's no way (yet) of actually enforcing precommittments (not just punishing defectors, but compelling people who precommit to actually follow through).

It seems there's no way to optimize "morality" except from the vantage point of some agent's preferences. All preference systems can be modeled the same way. As such, you're still facing an optimization problem, you're just facing it with some set of limitations on the actions you can take.
