Then morality would have no point. Suppose Hewlett-Packard announced
that in addition to their line of volt and amp meters they were coming
out with a good-evil meter, however there is no relationship between the
reading on the meter and the wishes and opinions of the user or any
other human; what do you think would happen to HP stock? I think it
would sink like a rock because the market would know such a device would
have absolutely no use.
