I don't bring morality or ethics into my statements often. Every now and then, one of humanity and the worth of human life falls in, but for the most part, its not in there.

 

But for the most part, my 3rd party view utilizes a type of ethics that John Rawls wished for. Because having no morality is at the same time not good. As then, you wouldn't be analyzing things. A 3rd party person without any personal beliefs is boring. They would just think everything was interesting and nothing mattered. I do believe that to a sense, but my earthly emotions and morals will and do play into my 3rd party self. In the sense that I strive to be more of a historian than a watcher.

 

John Rawls theory of justice's main point that I like was the VEIL OF IGNORANCE. Before I go into what it is with a short summary, do note that it is of course very impossible to do 24/7, and he recognizes this, but he mearley proposes it as one of the most objective ways to work stuff out.

 

But basically, the Veil of Ignorance is where the views, and analysis of a person that they are making should be handled in a state in where you know NOTHING about yourself. You don't know what gender, race, nationality, sex etc etc about yourself. You are then given the question or situation that has been proposed. And you must make an opinion or answer to it. You don't know what gender or race or nationality you are, so in this state. Your vote, and opinion will be very thoughtful. You have to consider the pro's and real con's of each question. And this basically will help against bias, and promote a better world. Example would be woman suffrage(voting) in the 20's to 40's and later in the USA. You put a politician into the state of ignorance. They don't know who they are anymore or anything about their personal identity. They don't know if they are male or female, and so their opinion will be a 'real' one in where they must weigh the pro's and con's of passing the right for women to vote based off a 'real' truth that they believe in. Rawls believed that people should think of situations like this when possible. This is a bit faulty in the real world appliance as many can tell.

 

that is the type of ethics I try to use in my 3rd party view. In where I attempt to blind myself of my identity and place and focus on stuff that is righteous to a country or world. 

The basic principle sounds nice but is hardly practicable.
For example, how are you planning on making a decision as a person who doesn't know anything about him/herself? Last time I checked, every living thing is making decisions based on past experiences. Experiences you won't remember once you are under this veil.

I'm fine with my set of ethics and I think I share quiet a lot of them with the majority of the worlds population.

Quite the helpful tool right there... especially for an engineer? Don't know what I'd doe with that :blink:

 

But say if you had a touch screen computer that could do the same things, would you still have to get one of those? 

 

Pilot's Love Song or uber long name has the nice old feels to it. Apparently nina and claire have the same seiyuu. What if they're the same person :basshead:

It's not meant to be practical is the thing. Ethics philosophers are just these types. They create maxims and moral theories that may not be practical in all cases.

 

I forgot to mention that its not NOTHING about himself. But rather just the stuff that would cloud your thought in that situation.

No I wouldn't. My class required EITHER you buy a new Tablet computer $1100+ of spec or you buy the $70-$90 Wacom Tablet. I chose the later.  I got the semi better version($20 more). The CTH 480 rather than the CTL 480. Mainly because the CTH has a more advanced pen with a digital eraser, and because it has 'hand' multi touch support.

That Kizumonogatari movie was announce sooooo long ago, just to troll us fans I am sure. Then they had to delay it form it's original release date, more trolling.

Nice to see Kyo no Asuka Show in that list, that is a fun short form show to watch. I don't like to look at those sites with the super far out projections because they are wrong a lot, and stuff gets delayed all the time, hate getting my hopes up D:
