„I wouldn't kill an abortionist myself, but I wouldn't want to impose my moral values on others.“

—  Ann Coulter author, political commentator 1961

"49 Million to Five" (3 June 2009).

Kontext: I wouldn't kill an abortionist myself, but I wouldn't want to impose my moral values on others. No one is for shooting abortionists. But how will criminalizing men making difficult, often tragic, decisions be an effective means of achieving the goal of reducing the shootings of abortionists?

„Sometimes they are as anxious to offer moral justifications for the brutalities from which they suffer as for those which they commit.“

—  Reinhold Niebuhr, kniha Moral Man and Immoral Society

Zdroj: Moral Man and Immoral Society (1932), pp. 8-9
Kontext: The inevitable hypocrisy, which is associated with the all the collective activities of the human race, springs chiefly from this source: that individuals have a moral code which makes the actions of collective man an outrage to their conscience. They therefore invent romantic and moral interpretations of the real facts, preferring to obscure rather than reveal the true character of their collective behavior. Sometimes they are as anxious to offer moral justifications for the brutalities from which they suffer as for those which they commit. The fact that the hypocrisy of man's group behavior... expresses itself not only in terms of self-justification but in terms of moral justification of human behavior in general, symbolizes one of the tragedies of the human spirit: its inability to conform its collective life to its individual ideals. As individuals, men believe they ought to love and serve each other and establish justice between each other. As racial, economic and national groups they take for themselves, whatever their power can command.

„There are two kinds of morality—the kind of morality that one imposes on oneself and the kind of morality that one imposes on others.“

—  Theodore Kaczynski American domestic terrorist, mathematician and anarchist 1942

For the first kind of morality, that is, for self-restraint, I have the greatest respect. The second kind of morality I do not respect except when it constitutes self-defense. (For example, when women say that rape and wife-beating are immoral, that is self-defense.) I have noticed that the people who try hardest to impose moral code on others (not in self-defense) are often the least careful to abide by that moral code themselves.

„I don't want to hear anymore of your difficulties. For an SS officer there are no difficulties; his duty is always to remove difficulties himself as soon as they arise. How you do it is for you to figure out, not me.“
