Josh, I chose to comment on your blog post this week because I found myself agreeing with everything that you were saying. While I focused on a different question for my blog post, I found that we had both come to the same conclusion, that utilitarianism stifles imagination and human emotion. Your argument was engaging as it was direct and straight to the point. There was a few word that could have been changed to make the argument flow better, but overall I thought your blog post was an excellent critique of Mr Gradgrind’s approach to teaching and utilitarianism. I can’t wait to read more from you in the next few weeks, well done!
