Should People Be Allowed To Do Whatever They Want, As Long As It Does Not Hurt Someone Else?

A pretty nice blog post over on the Just Thomism blog. You can find it here. I’m sure this is in regard to the often-repeated axiom that people should be allowed to do whatever they want as long as it does not hurt anyone else. Such a statement is held by many to be the supreme ethic. But this post shows some rather large flaws in such an ethic.

Be sure to read the comment.
