college philosophy (Mill)
posted by brittany on .
how can mill say that “there is no parity between the feeling of a person for his own opinion, and the feeling of another who is offended at his holding it; no more than between the desire of a thief to take a purse, and the desire of the right owner to keep it”? while he is a utilitarian who cares about everyone's desires?
I don't understand this quote either.
