THE TRUTH ABOUT UTILITARIANISM

utilitarianism-1275515948-phpapp01-thumbnail-4

Utilitarianism: n. making efficiently useful with beauty and/or large size being relatively unimportant

If you are promoting the efficient use of money and efficient human behavior with minimal emphasis on beauty and large size then you are a utilitarian.

Aerodynamic vehicle shapes are utilitarian and are objectively beautiful and efficient as are passive homes which utilize the least amount of energy to obtain creature comforts.

Subjective beauty in fashion and clothes and large size as a symbol for strength or power is misguided value judgments which are not utilitarian and lead to inefficiency and profligate use of natural resources with the corresponding pollution.

We also desperately need a utilitarian efficient worldwide morality which includes biodiversity and efficiency as part of the moral code which I have stated more than once in many of my blogs.

Utilitarian morality coupled with utilitarian efficient use of money or energy is what the world needs to escape its inevitable plunge into inefficient human self-destruction. Self-destruction is caused by inefficient human behavior which nature abhors and will punish us for our immorality in the long duration.

THE TRUTH ABOUT REMORSE

remorse

Remorse: n. sensing guilt and badness after having done a bad and/or wrong subset(s) which is frequently an immoral behavior(s) and/or offense(s) and wishing the behavior had never existed

Most of us have a moral sense of what is right and wrong and feel bad, guilty, or have remorse if we lie, steal, or commit adultery.

There are psychopaths and humans who do not have much of a moral conscience and do not feel remorse after lying or an act of adultery. Some even don’t feel remorse after stealing and getting away with it.

Remorse is something moral humans feel and it frequently prevents them from doing an immoral act again if they make a mistake and do something bad or immoral. Remorseful humans feel guilty and try not to repeat bad or immoral mistakes the next time around.
