Abstract

An ethic that imposes strong obligations to protect those who are most powerful and capable of protecting themselves and weak obligations to protect the powerless and most vulnerable is wrong. I take it this first proposition is self-evident, at least for those of us who still feel comfortable speaking of right and wrong. For those more comfortable speaking of "efficiency" and "inefficiency," the inefficiency of such an ethical system should similarly be self-evident.
