No bad men should govern.
Every majority is made of bad men.
Therefore, no majority should govern
Do you agree / disagree with this argument, and why?
What are the argument’s major flaws?
Well, if this is a purely hypothetical situation I’d have to say that the statement “Every majority is made of bad men” is a pretty big assumption. What if, for instance, the league of solid dudes, a group of all good men were taking a vote in which the league would go with the majority decision. Regardless of who votes for what and who ends up in the majority, since there were no bad men to begin with this majority can’t have any, let alone be made of them. Again though, this is all just a hypothetical.
On another train of thought though we could assume that since the entire nature of a majority rule is to assert what they want over what the minority wants they’re automatically bad guys in forcing something the minority doesn’t wan on them, a la the “two wolves and a sheep” saying. However, if we stick with the two wolves and the sheep deciding what’s for dinner, but then add in you and I, the vegans, we could hypothetically side with the sheep and opt for Chinese food or whatever else. As the majority in this situation (you, me, and the sheep) deprived the minority (the wolves) of what/ who they wanted to eat (the sheep) we would be at least minor dicks, but maybe not overall bad people because we weighed the right off the wolves to eat the sheep against the right of the sheep to live.
In the end though I guess this hypothetical relies pretty heavily on what constitutes a “bad man” because that’s pretty heavily up to interpretation.
Got some grown up clothes for my new job today. Accurate portrayal of how I look in them.
Here’s some more progress!
Progress shots are so important to me. To some people they might just see an unfinished painting. But it is so so much more than that. It shows the process that an artist is going through, the things they decide to do first, the colours they’re using through each step.
I feel this. It’s wild looking back through them, it’s like watching something grow and seeing all the phases and subtle changes between A and B.
The first time I ever listened to Culture’s “No Drive” I was just kind of like “… Oh.” when I realized that most of these things were just things that I did everyday and began to understand that maybe that was a big problem in my life.
