This is in my quote collection and said by some Salvor Hardin. I forgot when and why I had added it to the collection, but now that I was randomly going through it, this quote has just stumped me.
I think this statement is totally conflicting and a logical fallacy in itself. How can you stop your sense of morals from preventing you from doing what is right, when the moral sense itself determines what is right and wrong? To be more clear, it is our sense of morality that determines what is right and wrong. So, its like saying "jump from this table, and at the same time don't jump". Am I not understanding something?
