I was wondering... If we were to follow a weakly anthropocentric view that emphasizes "idealized" values we as humans should strive to uphold, where would the issue of deer overpopulation stand? Would the ideal moral human kill deer to restore ecological balance, or find value in the deer that exist already and let them be? There are conflicting values between holism and individualism that both seem valid in this case.

  1. I think the "ideal" worldview is that things are better when we don't change them. So in our human way we would try to restore it back by killing the deer. At least I think this is what most people would agree is ideal.
