Wholeheartedly agree with most of the content. One quibble, though, with this quote:
“No, there is no acceptable balance between happiness and intense suffering.”
Is that true, though? Most people would accept 1 second of torturous pain for 1 million years of dreams come true and happiness. Many would say it was the right move to do, too. It seems to contradict the idea that no amount of happiness can justify suffering, though.
