And potentially controversial one at that. But I assume I am in the right place, you all being open-minded and not minding a good debate.
I actually first heard this hypothetical moral question on a nihilist website, possibly Quora (no cite as of now, sorry). Remember it is a moral question, not a legal one. So no need for it to take that direction.
A pervert secretly films his neighbor in the shower. She is never aware of what he does. And he destroys the tape before he dies, so basically no one ever finds out about the deed.
Question: Did he do anything wrong?
I know when I was younger, I would give an unequivocal Yes. And I would still have a tendency to do that now. But I do still have to tell you, the older I get, the more I tend to question my former beliefs. So at present, I not a 100% certain.
Plus I think the answer to this question says more about the person who gives the answer, than it does about the actual question.
Thank you in advance to all who reply:)
