  1. I have to say that I find myself agreeing with most of Mill's Harm Principle. I believe that it has a great foundation and I do think that people need freedom and room to grow, learn, make mistakes, live life, and be happy as themselves. However, some of his statements and principles seem a little blurry such as the different levels of happiness, or exempting the rule against those that are dangerous or psychotic. I can think of many other random situations where it could be a questionable call whether or not to step in and change someone else's actions.

    FQ: What is the name of the famous and inspiring book written by John Stuart Mill?
    DQ: Do you think it is best to let everyone make their own decisions, or is it best to give your opinion and choose for others?

  2. I think it is very interesting to hear all of Karl Marx's views. He had great intentions I believe, in making everyone more equal and trying to end the extremes of poverty and extremely rich. However, the opinion that taking away everyone's freedom and products to split between everyone is not one that I can so easily agree on. Sure the face value sounds great, but once all motivation for doing anything is gone, will people continue to make goods, food, or work for any reason at all? The drive to be productive is best when it comes from within, not when it is forced out by others.

    FQ: What did Karl Marx say religion was like?
    DQ: Do you think that a communist world would be better than a capitalist one?
