Political Altruism And
This nation was not founded on the premises of Moral Relativism. It was founded by just men who sincerely believed in unchangeable moral principles and that those principles were universal and absolute.
Our nation has lost its Moral Compass. The left is doing their very best to convince you and I that morals are not important. The Progressives and socialist and envirofacist on the left are busy nudging you and I out of our freedoms. They decry rugged individualism and a society glued together by the moral absolutes in our founding documents. Democrats and the left insist on the psychologically mind numbing one size fits all answers for everything. The left is busy insisting that there are no winners or losers, when life teaches us the opposite. These social distortionists are engaged in disseminating lies and half truths and the result is taking a very heavy toll on our national consciousness.
Moral relativism can be found in utilitarianism, evolutionism, existentialism, emotivism and in situationism. Everyone of these forms of moral relativity share the common unifying ideal, that absolute morals do not exist, and that what is right or wrong is a product of happenstance and cultural human preference.
The left celebrates a life based on justification alibis and excuses for toxic behavior. Morals and ethics can be altered from one situation, person, or circumstance to the next. Essentially, moral relativist say that anything goes, because life is ultimately without meaning or what ever you perceive the meaning to be. Words like "ought" and "should" are rendered meaningless. In this way, moral relativism makes the claim that it is morally neutral.
From the Ayn Rand Lexicon, "There are two moral questions which altruism lumps together into one “package-deal”: (1) What are values? (2) Who should be the beneficiary of values? Altruism substitutes the second for the first; it evades the task of defining a code of moral values, thus leaving man, in fact, without moral guidance.
Altruism declares that any action taken for the benefit of others is good, and any action taken for one’s own benefit is evil. Thus the beneficiary of an action is the only criterion of moral value—and so long as that beneficiary is anybody other than oneself, anything goes."
We are at the brink of Moral Bankruptcy.
