Doug Casey on Ethics (Part Two)
June 30, 2010
Louis: So, Doug, you’ve told us your ethical principles can be summed up in two statements:
Doug: Well, perhaps not entirely. But it is said ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking it. In today’s world, that’s total nonsense, because there are literally hundreds of thousands of arbitrary laws, with new ones passed daily. So I like these two laws because they’re simple, intuitive, and based on ethical principles. But as we discussed last time, I really think there’s just one great law, and it’s even more important: Do as thou wilt, but be prepared to accept the consequences. An observance of that principle would necessarily result in a much more thoughtful and ethical population.
