Comment by Ben_Wraith2 on What Would You Do Without Morality? · 2008-06-29T07:46:29.000Z · LW · GW

Since my current moral system is pretty selfish and involves me doing altruistic things to make me happy, I wouldn't change a thing. At first glance it might appear that my actions should be more shortsighted since my long-term goals wouldn't matter, but my short-term goals and happiness wouldn't matter just as much. Is this thought exercise another thing that just all adds up to normality?
