Once again one of these comes out on the eve of a writing day so I can’t give it the attention it deserves, but I did want to note that it seems to me that most of the major moral systems start to look like each other (or at least can) when we start considering their elements in a more robust way. For example, the Golden Rule can start to sound like an application of the Categorical Imperative, and Utilitarianism can start to sound like both once one reaches Rule Utilitarianism.
