← Do we need objective morals?

In reply to comment 19 j gibbons You seem to be comparing apples and oranges, the physical act of punching some does illustrate though what I meant. My wishes or desires about experiencing pain will have no effect on the outcome.The experience of pain is an aspect of 'objective' reality, things hurt even if we dont want them to. But the premises of your statement seems to be that there is no difference between one concrete act and the complex abstraction of a morality qua morality.
