Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

You answer your own question.

The enforcement of the GDPR, the DCMA, the Cloud Act, desuetude, Droit de Suite, and countless criminal statutes and tort disputes on which the measures of moral rectitude in business rely, finally, on each and everyone's tacit obedience to laws (codified custom) and observance of the judicial opinions of the day.

What is an injury to oneself or others, and What is not socially acceptable conduct?

If you don't know, if at some point, at the um intersection of indecision about what path to take, that socratic line --above and beyond the heternomy of law enforcement that is "us"-- lies autonomy.

Knowing what I know, how shall I act? is the loneliest manifestation of "freedom". Dirk chose asshole, for no reason other than "I can." For no thought to the greater good done by publishing his property without his express "permssion."

Autonomy is not well understood.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
