Luck and Morality Discussion

(This is mainly a topical teaser, not much more)

Today I'm going to a philosophy meetup on the role of luck in moral reasoning. Collapse )

I have a lot of other things to write about, but I might talk about how I think about these issues in my value theory later. My thoughts on this topic are fairly conventional in their conclusions; the only potentially interesting bits might be in my reasoning; basically how I deal with the objections of those that are looking for some non-conventional solution (but probably haven't found it; adequately addressing the concerns raised makes one's moral system pretty alien).
