Urman Dictionary



The philosophical position that the most morally correct action is the one that generates the most futility, by rendering moot as many other actions as possible. (Distinct from fatalism, which holds that the actions are moot to begin with.)

I took a class in futilitarianism in college. Our professor had anterograde amnesia. For the final exam, our essays were written with inkless pens and then burned. I got a perfect score, for which I received zero hours of credit.
