10. This is great moral discussion, where you're going with this, in all seriousness.

I understand what you're saying completely, regarding people generally being more involved in a personal interaction when these dilemmas come up, if that's what you're saying. Give more details, if you have something in mind. Because, on the level of Murdoch just being a dick and his information/approach not deserving real respect, I've basically already conceded that. I'm not sure what else you want. Defend those being unjustly attacked was basically the first point I made.

It does seem like you're moving toward the "personalization" aspect of the rule, though, which is where I think this gets fascinating ("great moral discussion" mentioned above). My own personal sense of the rule is that, the more personal a given interaction is, the more you have to consider the rule, no matter the "power" of the person. It's not black and white, and the more you know a person the more it requires empathy. Again, not "treat me like a king" empathy, but understanding of the standards one would expect to be held to if one's self was put in the very same position. Think of how many on DU consider Obama, for example.
