One of the questions I am answering in tomorrow’s political philosophy exam is regarding Machiavelli and the problem of dirty hands. The problem of dirty hands refers to the sort of moral dilemma that often appear in political life in which there seems to be no right course of action to take: either way one seems to be causing evil; either way one has dirty hands. Would it be too pun-tastic to construct an example in which a politician is forced to decide whether to sexually harass one intern or another? Or is would that just be procrastination?
First spring semester exam down: Formal Logic. It went ok and the worst thing was the hunger I was dealing with afterwards. Needed to sit down and eat two slices of birthday cake before I could do anything else afterwards. Anything else being revision for the Political Philosophy exam that I have tomorrow morning :””””(
