POLS041 Feb. 26, 2019 Wolfe Continued o Is there a state that would allow you to maintain your moral autonomy? Thus, connecting authority and autonomy? We have ruled out representative democracy, with majority rule democracy Participation is not just the right to vote, but it’s the ability to play a hand in that democracy o Civil disobedience Principled if you’re willing Happens when you find a rule unjust o Would Wolfe disallow promises? o Unanimous Direct Democracy Unanimity can actually hide a lot of decent, coercion Jury system Practical Objections Cheap Wants you to recognize that almost every form of government faces an issue, except this one but its almost completely impossible to do o When do you owe a state your loyalty? Only when it doesn’t infringe on your autonomy Critiques o Autonomy comes out of Moral Philosophy Deliberate about course of action with the intention of doing the right thing (autonomous, and responsible free agent) o Wolfe’s definition of moral autonomy is too stringent If he made them a little more relaxed, then most people would agree with him
