How might a question on ethics such as this be framed so as to work within the rules of the site?


A couple things come to mind:

  • "Is it important" questions are hard to answer consistently, because the answer depends on people's differing notions of importance.
  • Questions that state a particular world view ("Do moral realists think blah?") or asking for if any are like that are more obviously objective questions.
    • This, try applying the question to itself: why do people question the motives of others? Some do it without realizing that they're doing it, some do it because they themselves have poor intentions. So, it all depends.
