"besides" meaning except for or including

abovewater7abovewater7 Alum Member

I don't know if "besides' meaning except for or including, which are the opposite meanings. For example, for PT52, the conclusion says 'So legislators who value democracy should not propose any law inhibiting behavior that is not harmful to anyone besides the person engaging in it." Does it mean to include the person or to exclude the person? Thank you for the help!!

    it means "other than," so it excludes the person.
