Right. I don't think taking lives, or even intentionally injuring people, is ever ethical. And yet, I was in the military and prepared to take lives, if necessary. It's an interesting ethical conundrum, and something I find pretty interesting. But when folks are cavalier about killing or injuring other folks, that's concerning to me.
That is quite often justified ideologically. So killing is technically good because.....
Which is the same ideologically of justifying morality with legality.
I tried to steer clear of that sort of thing with my own morality because it seems dishonest. Even if it was comfortable.
I also notice people are suggesting morality is about consequence. So something is bad because I might get in trouble.
Which again is very ideological.
