I do believe that many individuals have been debating this very question
in the context of this news group. The fact that such a range of
opinions exist on the topic may lead a person to believe that a simple
answer does not exist for a simple question. As pointed out, it would
depend on personal values.
I for one am enjoying the debate and hope that it continues. I do not
believe we can learn anything without a little controversy.
