Varieties of Moralism

The chart illustrates the fallacies of moralism by the expansion and overlap of the morality of intentions onto the other domains of polynomic value. This is schematic and simplified, since, for example, political moralism also typically encompasses anaesthetic and anhedonic moralism. But it is heuristically convenient to cite a form of moralism for each domain that is overlapped.
