The 3LMP seeks to inspire all people to be excellent humans. The 3LM embraces and promotes the 3LMP to achieve the goals of optimizing human happiness and well-being while minimizing suffering. Such a goal is necessary if we are ever to achieve a lasting peace.
The following seven aspirational values are suggested for those aspiring to be excellent humans. This is a non-exhaustive list. Individuals may want to add other aspirational values that suit their personal preferences. While members of the 3LM may offer advice about how others should live their lives, as the 3LMP is voluntary, all members of the 3LM oppose importing any of these aspirational values into the law, thereby mandating others to adopt them.
All competent adults should decide for themselves how best to live their lives so long as they do not aggress against others or their property.
In addition to encouraging people to be excellent humans, the 3LM promotes calibrating (assess and adjust) the law to remove aggression in the spirit of freedom. The 3LM seeks to prohibit all aggression. The 3LLP – Don’t Aggress – requires all acts of aggression should always be illegal. This is not a suggestion and there are no exceptions.
The 3LLP applies to all people equally, even if they form groups, organizations, corporations, or governments. It is the most fundamental legal principle upon which all other laws ought to be based. Therefore, all laws ought to be in harmony with the 3LLP such that all aggression be outlawed.
To properly observe the Live and Let Live Philosophy, and to promote freedom and peace, we must allow others the exact same right to also peacefully live their lives on their own terms. We must let others live even if we disagree with the peaceful choices they make.
The cost of achieving peace is letting others do what you also have the right to do; to own and control their own lives. This is especially important when we find their choices to be immoral, unhealthy, unwise, or against their self-interest. We must legally respect the rights of others to peacefully do things with which we disagree.
As a moral matter, and despite this, we can and should do our best to encourage people to be excellent humans. And they have the right to reject our suggestions.
I endorse the Live and Let Live Practical Political Philosophy which consists of the 3LMP which encourages people to be excellent humans and the 3LLP which seeks to outlaw all acts of aggression. Please keep me informed about the 3LM.
