FROM IGNORANT REACTION to MORAL RESPONSE.
People are so smart that they are stupid. It’s like picking up dry sand with your hand. The distortion of post-modern ideas usurped into the Post-modern religion yields human brains that think they are being sensible.
That is; One can not contain sense, for people will always use what tools are at hand for their own strange values.
It really is a logistical problem and not an ethical or subjective problem: There is no getting rid of people who think differently than you do, and so the burden falls upon the people with the greater capacity for morality to try to check the non-reflective people from getting too much a foot hold. In this case, the pro-lifers are always coming up with ways to assert their small ideals on everyone else. Because the post modern religion says that everyone is involved in the relative negotiation of reality.
It works both ways: One always is made to play the games of the lowest common oppressive thinking instead of the highest aspiration of goodness. The mental-slaves must see themselves as having a freedom to be who they are, and the higher functioning people must then cater to them like to an upset child with a shotgun. The higher morality is always made to understand the less fortunate and ignorant, while the less fortunate are allowed to see themselves in the context of freedom; They are thereby allowed to hopefully make the climb themselves.
The absolute ethics arises in facing the reality that is in front of us openly without bias, to the best of one’s ability. This type of ethics does not ask unto the first cause or some absolute giver of law. Nor does it make any proclamations about what is right and wrong outside of the situation that presents itself as sensible.
What is sensible ? We will find out whether what is sensible is a relational responsibility of democracy or whether it is an authoritarian proclamation from above.
Nevertheless, none is necessarily wrong or bad, rather, it is just exactly human: How any society conceives and confronts ignorance forms the basis of every social organization: It is a logistical unfolding of conditions, and the subjective moral progress is then a path that is given to the oppressed. The path drawn through the altruism which understands what ignorance is thus guides the ignorant without letting the slave see that their plight is being handed to them by the system itself.
The question is: Does this social experiment yield a higher functioning human being and thus better society?
We might be finding that it doesn’t. The deeper question is whether the higher morality is able to keep faith (have fidelity) against the ignorant morality that would recourse to the ethics of freedom. The options: freedom of choice, or the choice of freedom. The latter is the higher ground.
