@voidabyss Ok so i think i may understand your rule system now, let me recap and you can tell me if its accurate:
What determine self-harm is the net negative outcome on the individual and society unless it’s self-sacrifice.
The rule here is if it bad for the individual, it’s bad for society unless self-sacrifice.
Ok so self-harm, when a sacrafice for others, is morally ok.
self-harm that is not a sacrafice for others is always wrong.
Does mental illness and distress form a requirement here at all, or is that just an explanation, that self harm will always coincide with mental health issues and it isnt the mental health issues that make it immoral but rather they are a symptom that is always linked to self harm?
Self-sacrifice might be perceived as bad for the individual but it’s a net positive for society.
This part I get and am fine with.
Assuming my above interpritation is correct im still a bit confused. You said tattoos and scarification was not considered immoral. Yet it does objectively produce self harm (however small) some it still appears to be at odds with your wsystem since you said it is moral yet your “rules” would suggest it isnt.
Am I mixing something up?
