"But of course I made a very deliberate decision not to speak of "h-right". That sounds like there is a general license to be human."

Okay, this is a good point, and a good post.

I still think, however, you're left with the empirical question of how strongly psychological unity applies to moral dynamics: to what extent (if any) different people are just different optimization processes with nothing to argue about.
