Utilitarianism

MercatorNet has a new essay up on utilitarianism, which I highly recommend carefully reading. It is this philosophy that underpins the great divide between those in our society who demand the use of embryonic stem cells because of the potential for curing disease, and those of us who believe that the ends never justify immoral means. See my previous post on the subject for another take on this. (And I’ll keep comments open on this post unless it degenerates like that one.)
