    Morality is a set of attitudes and behaviors which facilitate, voluntary, cooperative, and mutually beneficial relationships.

    Of course. The elitist shitheads of the world believe in the Theory Of Hegemonic Stability.

    Or living your life in such a way that minimizes harm to others and maximizes happiness, comfort, or fulfillment of oneself and others.

    I just made that up. Where is your definition from?

    I like yours. I made mine up on my own, being tired of all the bs in the world.

    Most people don't even believe in a fixed form of any morality. They believe it's fluid and that they will be told what's right by authority figures.

    All individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose.

    Not good enough. Many merely rely on the state and an insane monetary system to perpetuate violence and evil onto others, even if they don't realize they're doing it, or don't understand the inherent violence and totalitarianism of a state which derives it's power from a fiat currency system.

    That's covered in the part that says "so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose."

    No. Because using the state and cops to do the dirty work doesn't excuse them.

    Ahem. If you used the 'State' and the 'Cops' to do your dirty work, that would be tantamount to 'forcibly interfering with the equal rights of others'.

    No. That's standing idly by while others do the dirty work.
