Our view ...

Moral arguments must always be based on the Golden Rule (“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you") and the principle that action must make people better off. This rule underlies all social rules and customs. Murder is wrong because society is destroyed unless there are laws against murder. But, by the same token, society has a responsibility to eradicate as far as possible those social conditions which create murderers.
