WTF of the day

a movie about a man living in the midst of tel-aviv, who has (at least) 32 wives and 89 children and the authorities are unable to do anything about it.

Because it's an obligation, it should have a better reason than "why not". Obligations require higher standards than non-obligatory actions, because they imply a restriction of liberty.

My view of moral obligations is that they are something you set for yourself. You define what is your moral obligation regarding a certain situation.

How do you differentiate between a moral obligation and a moral preference?
