For example, do people in third world countries have less value than people in the first world? What about personally? Would you rather have three-hundred North Koreans die than have just one of your best friends or family die? What about special-needs people? In a situation where a special-needs person and an average person are both in peril danger, who should be saved? Are they equal? Discuss.

I thought you meant like, values... not values


But most people consider children>adults, I certainly do.

But certainly not based on race or wealth, or even mental conditions

Women>men as well.

At TS, this is a dumbass question. Everyone has equal right to live unless they are like that **** who planted those bombs in Boston. Then he doesn't deserve to live the rest of his miserable life.

Disabled, special needs, black, white, asian, treborillusion. They all deserve equal right to live and no-one should ever ask anyone "who would you prefer to live out of...".

That whenever someone posts "hurr durr wot about Irac you rassissts" in the Boston thread, someone always tells them to shut up and make a new thread about it.

Values are a social-cultural construction, so by default, yes. What's interesting is what we're left with if we lose them, or grow up without them, since most values are taught from an early age.

I would disagree. If someone accumulated wealth during his life that must mean he has produced something that other people (employers or consumers) were willing to pay a lot for. They only pay a lot for something that benefits them greatly. Therefore I would say that wealth is a proxy for how valuable someone is to the human race.

Surely this is a no-brainer? Cancer research scientist > serial killer


I tried to explain to myself why this is correct and I've come up with a bit of a ramshackle theory

Peoples worth or value, as in this thread, should be calculated almost directly by their ideals on human life other than their own

ideally this is set up so that people who value others lives above theirs(E.G. firemen, police, above average citizens, your everyday hero sort of stuff) are easily considerably more appealing than a serial killer


However, sociopaths could be an exception to this rule.

while most people get wealthy doing things the nice way, Plenty of people get rich scamming others and in generally weasel their way up, not even to mention thieves.

Surely they're not worth more than the lowly average man that does nice things for people on a more-than-seldom basis.

Has he cured cancer yet? No. Lazy, uninspired scum wasting the resources of society for his own vanity whilst simultaneously demanding respect and adoration for his failure to produce anything meaningful due to his own incompetence barring the way for people who have a better chance of facilitating progress.

That's why I said a good proxy, not a perfect one. Ofcourse additional measures etc. should be employed. I was merely providing an argument why he was wrong.
