My note to a utilitarian podcaster who interviewed a utilitarian and honestly questioned him on some obvious challenges to philosophical utilitarianism:

Just something to think about. Is it an example of confirmation bias to say that the challenges to utilitarianism can be overcome by use of practical application rather than saying that the challenges to deontology can be overcome by use of practical application?

Another worldview:

Ms. Roquelin said she enjoys a rich and fulfilling life without children, and is now studying for a master’s degree in business administration to capitalize on her music career. “I have many more things to explore on my journey,” she said, “that do not involve raising other suffering human beings on an out-of-supplies planet.”
