I would say more instructing rather than governing
Since individuals are free to decide for themselves


So for you morality is something intrinsically libertarian?
Anyone is free to do as they choose including the freedom to break the
law but in doing so they have to accept responsibility for their actions


Yes it is since without any such system transgressions cannot be punished

Can transgressions not be punished in a haphazard way?
They can although no system is perfect or can ever be

No the embodiment of it is the majority view of the people
For governments are not truly representative of the people


So for you morality is something intrinsically democratic?
Yes it is and that is because it is basically inter subjective

Each person can have their own system
But morality is basically inter subjective


So morality must be systematized and determined democratically uncoercively
Yes although I prefer to think of it as organic rather than systematic because
it slowly develops over time so is continually evolving into something better
A MIND IS LIKE A PARACHUTE : IT DOES NOT WORK UNLESS IT IS OPEN
