On the Moral Implications of Willful Acts of Virtual Harm

Very timely post for me, as I have been working on an essay about the robot hero of Japanese cartoons, Astro Boy. Similar questions have entered my mind, and someone else has recently asked me about, how far can we extend human empathy to non-human entities? And what does this tell us of those who cannot extend such empathy very far?

Good post!
