    Utilitarianism is an ethical theory which holds that actions are
    right in proportion as they tend to promote happiness and wrong as they tend to produce the reverse of happiness.

    It's basically about universal happiness-maximation.

    I am an adherent of this ideology.

    Sorry for saying but it sounds abit dumb or easy bought.
    It just sounds like another word for hedonism! Are you not National Socialist? well who are supposed to define the different subjective interests within utilitarianism? its a narrow way to base your beliefs, it sounds almost like Judea preaching's about good and wrong.
    To illustrate this simplicity, I retrieve this quote: Definition of good and evil: Good is what you like, Evil is what you don’t like!

    (there is nothing Universal about that)

    From racist's description of Utilitarianism I have understood that it is similar if not identical to Hedonism. Could you please explain the difference.

    Personally I am against Hedonism, I would prefer a more ordered and guided Philosophy.

    Sometimes there is nothing wrong with hedonism, but the movement dont need more selfish egos around. Being ego is also being self-aware but being emphatic and yet selfish is true clinical Hedonism. what we need is solidarity and good comradeships based on love and strength (rather we test the "Nature strength" negatively or merciful)

    Hedonism is the doctrine that pleasure or happiness is the sole or chief good in life.
    Utilitarianism is inclusive of hedonism but also includes universal altruism.
    All utilitarians are hedonists but not all hedonists are utilitarians.

    If you take away the fine words and remove the Hebrew symbols from Satanism then its the same basically.

    So you haven't been able to aswer any of my questions yet, im abit disappointed over that, lets make another question then. what is the gap of egocentrism as well as ethnocentrism within Ultilitarianism?, how folksy social bounded is this Utilitarianism ideology to you? My statement: any Nigger could be an Utilitarianist as well! next question, well if any nigger could be an Utilitarianist then whats the point in this ideology? to make a self justification on the behalf of what's individually hedonistic needed? as long as everyone is happy? now where does this last pacifist = (characterless features) enter the primacy?

    How can you be a racist but make everyone happy?

    You dont make much sense.

    Please excuse my inquisitive nature, but what exactly do you mean by "universal altruism"?
