Well, in the context I was speaking in there would be plenty to argue
about. Whose values system do you define as acceptable? Most religions
have their own, although many of them are similar and much overlaps.
Which bitwise operator do you use to combine them to get a system that
is agreeable to everyone (or even the most people)? ;-)
My point was simply that several billion on this planet people define
their values by their religion. Assuming everyone agrees in each
religion, that limits you to only a few basic value systems. If you
take out the religion aspect, you now have several billion value
systems. :) Although, since everyone interprets their religion
individually, its really somewhere between in the real world.
