philosophical ponderings

been on my mind lately: trying to reconcile moral relativism and human rights

came across preference utilitarianism: Since what is good and right depends solely on individual preferences, there can be nothing that is in itself good or bad: for preference utilitarians, the source of both morality andethics in general is subjective preference.[3] Preference utilitarianism therefore can be distinguished by its acknowledgement that every person’s experience of satisfaction is unique.
