: Its therefore a bit useless on its own isnt it - a bit of a club for which to beat one's morality into the heads of non-believers. At its best its utilitarianism, with all its subjectivism, an assumption that if you spent $500 on a bottle of wine you must have had some use for it, certainly more use than for a $5 bottle - and thats pretty much all you can derive from the concept.

btw - do you subscribe to 'self defined needs' as RD proposed - or would you regard needs as objectively measurable?

In this post I retracted my less civil statement.
