Is it okay to hurt sentiments? I don’t know if it is okay but it definitely is difficult to justly persecute anyone for it because ‘hurt’ is a relative term. What enlightens another might hurt me, what hurts me might humor you and what humors you might be a principle of life for someone else.

Intent (motive) is what differentiates good/bad (Morality) etc. If intent was not to hurt then no hurt need be felt.

See Kantianism.

What are intent and response but behaviors that we did not consciously condition but ones that come from learning and gene. It is fluid and changes with mood, maturity and evolution. A bad intent is just ignorance that needs to be forgiven and a bad reaction is just immaturity that needs to be grown past. Both are independent of each other.

In short, in the most perfect being in the world, hurt would not be felt whether the intent was good/bad.

The argument was not posed to contradict you but only to add more to it. Will see the link now. :)

True. :)

Reminded of parts of the poem "If" by Rudyard Kipling. Saw this just yesterday on FB.
