    It would be helpful to both Sargon and Gary if they understood that consequentialism is equivalent to deontology.

    The consequence that Sargon deems immoral is having been racist. The harm/care consequences are irrelevant against this more important consideration, and as preferences are pre-rational, no argument can or epistemically should affect his opinion.

    The rule for Gary is to care about harm/care. The action that is wrong in and of itself is deliberately causing harm. (Or negligently allowing harm to be caused?) If you want to see that as a meta-action, realize we can exhaustively list the actions, marking each as ‘allowed’ or ‘forbidden’ and thus show that consequentialism is a deontology with more particularism than modal deontologies.
    Further, the rules about what counts as ‘harm’ are philosophically arbitrary. Anyone who laughs at deontology is ontologically committed to laughing just as hard at consequentialism.

    My own perspective contradicts both systems, however. Not that you should care.

  2. The fact is, Sargon wasn’t describing morality, he was describing opinion based on emotional reactions, themselves conditioned by environment. That is what he meant by “morality is internal”. The whole problem with the ‘debate’ was that Sargon oscillated continually between two very different lines of attack

    1) What you believe is wrong due to moral principles
    2) What you believe will not be popular with the majority of people who hold certain moral principles

    These are entirely different topics, and because he expertly ghosted between them, he managed to elude any kind of real inquiry, the conversation really achieved nothing, which is a shame.
