Who Doesn’t Hate Crime

Criminals.

Though even then, only sometimes.

As excellently pointed out by Stefan Molyneux, and expanded upon in his free book Universally Preferable Behavior : A Rational Proof of Secular Ethics*, even a thief must prefer people keeping their possessions. This is evidenced by their expectation to posses whatever it is they have stolen.

So what do we make of the existence of crime, or making a distinction between crime and a ‘hate’ crime? In a video reacting to the recent Chicago kidnapping and torture, Dave Cullen of Computing, proposes that it may be of little importance to identify certain crimes as hate crimes. Give the video a listen and see if you agree.

I didn’t hate anything he said.
