1) You can't account for why one SHOULD NOT force them to do that .

2) What if child consents? Is it right to prostitute them?

As per #1, you cannot account for the origin of the moral law you espouse. You can say it comes from "right reason", but you cannot explain why it is "right".

You cannot explain why someone "should be moral". The best you can do is appeal to the "society" factor, which is true, but then what of the uber-person? If I can dominate others in all necessary areas, why should I be moral?

You'll probably say "fine, don't then, but they'll rise up and destroy you eventually"... to which I would ask "on what moral basis would they do that?".

If you say because "you were wrong for dominating them", we're right back to "why should I adhere to your standard of right/wrong?"

If you say they would do it on "no moral basis, put purely on the basis of what's pracical for the majority"... I would then ask you if your moral code's only origin is that of what's practical for the majority?

As per #2, well, I'd like to hear your answer to that as well.
