Genuineness, Existential Selfdetermination, Satisfaction: pick 2

imagine you have a world where one person wants the moon to be painted blue, and another wants the moon to be painted red.

you can't have all three of those things.

many hedonists will happily sacrifice genuineness; authoritarians like to sacrifice existential selfdetermination.
