Moral systems are in constant change. What was accepted years ago is no longer accepted and what is accepted today may not be tomorrow. In the present, however, the systems are nearly unquestionable. The thought of a blind deference to that which is in vogue scares me shitless regarding my ASPD and sociopathic condition.
There is little discourse regarding morality and whether morality should be legislated. Each side holds their beliefs close to their breast and resorts to slandering the other over disagreements. In America, both major political parties legislate morality – simply choosing different viewpoints as to that which is considered ‘moral’. Individuals, political or not, do the same – holding their own view points as scared and others’ as anathema. Discourse dies, hemorrhaging from the screaming.
