Consider these scenario:
1. After careful discussion, some naked apes decide that specific
other naked apes should not be considered as ethical equals. Slavery
insues, and most of the oppressors feel comfortable about it.
2. After careful discussion, some naked apes decide that specific
other naked apes, currently enslaved, should be considered as ethical
equals. They join the fight against slavery, and experience repugnance
and disgust when confronted with slavers.
Is this a counterexample to your claim?
