Thanks for engaging on this topic. I think there are some problems with your statements though. Maybe you can clarify this for me.
Are you claiming that “absolutes” - like the one you refer to - are the only “absolutes” we need? If that were the case – where enough people agree that something is so and then we call it law and an “absolute”, the world would then be wrong when it condemned the Nazis at Nuremberg. They had laws that they were following and they were quite consistent with these laws. They even had a consensus from the people that these laws were acceptable.
I imagine you aren’t arguing for this perspective so I must be mis-understanding you. Please help me understand your pint better.
I was answering to the question, in the way it was asked, about "purchasing".
But as you said yourself, they had a concensus from the people, the majority.
When it was the law, it was the absolute law, when it changed, it was no longer absolute.
The nazis, laws, were their absolute, until they were held accountable for their actions
You realize this is a play on words???
