Since the title is a play on a Woody Allen quote from Manhattan, I thought I’d include one of my favorite exchanges from the movie Love and Death.

Sonja: Let’s say there is no God, and each man is free to do exactly as he chooses. What prevents you from murdering somebody?

Boris: Murder’s immoral.

Sonja: Immorality is subjective.

Boris: Yes, but subjectivity is objective.

Sonja: Not in a rational scheme of perception.

Boris: Perception is irrational. It implies imminence.

Sonja: But judgment of any system of phenomena exists in any rational, metaphysical or epistemological contradiction to an abstracted empirical concept such as being, or to be, or to occur in the thing itself, or of the thing itself.

Boris: Yeah, I’ve said that many times.
