    I expect this is at the root of many of these sorts of religious wars,
    and in particular why people talk past each other so often: people
    weigh things differently.  There is no globally shared morality, not
    even within the relatively small hacker community.

Whenever I give a speech about the issue, I raise the question of
values explicitly, because all the arguments of all sides rest
ultimately on a choice of values.
