Redbacks, that's a very interesting post but I think it ends with the problem of connecting metaphysics and ethics. Meta-ethics is an interesting field but what remains most important is the ethical study. This may sound small mindedly empericistic but the only real alternative to this way of thinking is nihilism, which would be the foundation of a political movement of chaos which we've never truly come across. I'm not for a moment defending imperialism but rather defending our general human traditions. More rather, people are generally cool and we should just chill, even if many don't get round to what pseudo-intellectuals like myself call the 'big questions'
