So unless you can convince me that one can exist without morality, then my answer is, "but we can't exist without morality."

I'm confused :/

P(X,Y,Z) = P(X,(Y,Z)) = P(X) + P(Y,Z) - P(X;(Y,Z)) = P(X) + (P(Y) + P(Z) - P(Y;Z)) - P(X;(Y,Z)) = P(X) + (P(Y) + P(Z) - P(Y;Z)) - P((X;Y),(X;Z)) = P(X) + (P(Y) + P(Z) - P(Y;Z)) - (P(X;Y) + P(X;Z) - P(X;Y;Z)) = P(X) + P(Y) + P(Z) - P(X;Y) - P(Y;Z) - P(X;Z) + P(X;Y;Z)

By the inclusion-exclusion principle, no?
