Let's play rationalist Taboo!

Yes, I vehemently dispute this idea that a goal can't be more or less [Probable to achieve higher expected utility for other agents than (any other possible goals)]

Yes, I vehemently dispute this idea that a goal can't be more or less [Probable to achieve higher expected utility according to goal.Parent().utilityFunction].

Yes, I vehemently dispute this idea that a goal can't be more or less [Kolmogorov-complex].

Yes, I vehemently dispute this idea that a goal can't be more or less [optimal towards achieving your values].

Yes, I vehemently dispute this idea that a goal can't be more or less [easy to describe as the ratio of two natural numbers].

Yes, I vehemently dispute this idea that a goal can't be more or less [correlated in conceptspace to the values in the agent's utility function].

Yes, I vehemently dispute this idea that a [proposed utility function] can't be more or less rational.

Yes, I vehemently dispute this idea that a [set of predetermined criteria for building a utility function] can't be more or less rational.
