@derwinmcgeary Is that implying, that from all the people the asshole is responsible for ethical conduct?

@peter @derwinmcgeary they'll certainly make you feel like that when you do it...

@peter @derwinmcgeary I don't read it was "the asshole" = "the ethical enforcer". Instead I read it as "we need ethical enforcers, if you don't know one, be one".

I don't think assholes play a vital role in society. Esp not as ethics enforcer

@peter @derwinmcgeary Arguably, you have to be a bit of an asshole to play the role of an ethics enforcer effectively — as in, there should be a degree of disregard for people's wishes (e.g., a wish not to think about ethical implications of their work).
