That seems like the better of the two and what I'm trying to achieve.
To what extent are the damns not given? If you had the option to either make people slightly happier and love you for it, or a lot happier and hate you for it, which would you take? What about slightly happier and end up a hitler in their eyes(assuming the net happiness increase outweights the decrease in happiness from their hatred of you)?
Another question, if you don't mind, do you value your own happiness the same as you value other's?
