As one who understands the Self a person should expect and want to be called on their crap and reprimanded if necessary if they are in violation of Natural Law. Obviously you would hope that one who understands the Self would not be engaging in such acts anyway (otherwise it could be said they do not truly understand the Self).
I thought you believed in moral relativism Rakim? How does the judgement of "what deserves to be done unto them" get decided and by who?
what is the universal law and what do you mean by Self. u say that the rapist has given up his rights because hes in violation to the natural law. again what is the natural law.
also what about someone who actually wants to be raped. should he be allowed to rape others.
i believe morals are relative. the judegement and whoever decides the judgement is all opinion.
