[edit] Consequism

Lumenos thinks he invented a "value theory" known as Consequism.

[edit] Lumenos writes...

If you looked at value theory in the Wikipedia (when I last did) or goodness... well I don't actually have the time right now to read the latest articles, but let's just say for the sake of argument, that neither of those articles make a very fine distinction between righteousness and benevolence. "Goodness" can have two very different meanings; "moral goodness" (righteousness) or what I will call "benevolence". I aim to define benevolence and give it a place in value theory.

But then I would also like to make the claim that a person cannot be righteous without at least benefiting someone (including themselves). And that might even be an absolute moral proposition. A person cannot be "righteous" (in a valuable way) without at least benefiting someone. A moral system which benefits no one is evil or irrational. So consequism does have some implications regarding what may be called "righteousness". See the problem of lacking omnibenevolence.
