Hey

I have a question regarding the conditionality of the latter piece of the stimulus.

"an action that harms another person is morally bad either if such harm was intended or if reasonable forethought would have shown that the action was likely to cause harm"

Bad Intentions or Carelessness
+ :arrow: Morally Bad
Harm

Why is 'harm' sufficient to an action prove morally bad, is it because of the "cause harm?"

I initially diagrammed this as:

Bad Intentions
or :arrow: Morally Bad
Carelessness

Side Note: Does anyone know how to put 'space' in those diagrams, if so I would appreciate to learn how to do that.
