    Because those who live by the sword die by the sword. That is what I meant when I said "That is very short sighted". If I violated everyone else's rights to satisfy my own, no one would have rights. Including myself.

    A right is a moral principle defining a man’s freedom of action in a social context. There is only one fundamental right: a man’s right to his own life. The freedom to take all the actions for the support, fulfillment and the enjoyment of his own life. Such is the meaning of the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    The basis is, I am a Man and I must live. In order to live I must be moral. That is unless I choose death over life.
  2. How can man have a right to anything? And who defines whether you get to keep your rights? Based on what morality? I mean, you can say it's your morality, but honestly, what about everyone else?

    Morality is self-evident. It does not have to be made 'objective'. The desire to prove it, or make it objective is delusional, but so too is the idea that it doesn't exist if it is unprovable/ objective. In so far as you are not ideologically disposed [with proof or dis-proof], it is self-evident; you instinctively realize that you should treat your neighbor as yourself.

    From there, you may want to enquire why this should be so, and enter into questions of religion. But whether we do or not, we are still ethical beings.

    Because porn is like a drug--anyone can use and get hooked.

    I'd point the figure at Puritanism. It's created a split between the body and mind, ego and self, public and private. The Puritan represents the world to himself in his rational individual ego, are so his emotion is repressed. His private life is utterly private... but there is also an unreality to it... and so his emotions will break out from time to time in rebellion. The thought is that not much harm is done because it is in private. And yet the vice grows into an addiction, to the point where he realizes he has a problem. Due to a well-developed conscience, which is aware of the contradictions within his consciousness, he is the first to line up here for rehabilitation. This may involve a reunification of his psychology, and a re-thinking of his religion... which may be the same thing.
