Differences in Criminal, Ethical, and Moral Rules

(Riffing off Michael Philip)

[D]ifferences between Criminal, ethical, moral.

CRIMINAL: The criminal spectrum consists of imposition of costs by manual means.

ETHICAL: The ethical spectrum consists of imposition of costs by means of information asymmetry.

MORAL: The moral spectrum consists of costs imposed by anonymous means.

Norms may or many not be objectively moral.

Laws may or may not be objectively moral.

Under Propertarianism all law is required to be constructed by objectively moral means and everything else must be constructed as a contract for multiple exchanges the net of which must be productive, fully informed, warrantied and free of externality of the same criteria.
