If I believe in rule-utilitarianism as the best moral system we have to judge what actions are right and wrong, how would I go about applying this system pratically in real life decisions?
For example, if I was a strict-utilitarian it would be somewhat approachable. I could try to predict the likely consequences of an action and see if they contribute to a net-gain in happiness.
But with rule-utilitarianism, how do I even go about applying it? If there’s an action I want to judge morally, do I need to now make thousands of rules that I believe will grant the best net-gain of happiness and then see which of these rules this action falls under?
