Ooh yes, that's one of the debates I'm particularly looking forward to doing. Let's do it after our pantheism one.

Be warned: if I did it I would just argue that rule util violates metaethical principles and is thus universally incoherent, so it's unlikely that the debate would ever be about government.

And I would argue that those meta-ethical principles suck. No worries :)
We'll see how it goes. I'm just glad there's someone willing to argue against that position. It seems like virtually every currently-active member on this site is a pragmatist of some kind.
