The Anti-Morality Taught By The Progressives

A summary of a Notre Dame University study of young Americans aged 18 to 23 and their attitudes to morality. As good an example as you would ever find as to how the education system is designed to demoralise our society to the point where the pathological amorality of socialism becomes quite acceptable-

  • When asked to describe a moral dilemma they had faced, two-thirds of the young people either couldn’t answer the question or described problems that are not moral at all.
  • Moral thinking didn’t enter the picture, even when considering things like drunken driving, cheating in school or cheating on a partner.
  • The default position, which most of them came back to again and again, is that moral choices are just a matter of individual taste.
  • As one put it, ‘I mean, I guess what makes something right is how I feel about it. But different people feel different ways, so I couldn’t speak on behalf of anyone else as to what’s right and wrong.

The root cause of our rising crime rates and disintegrating society, really just a side effect of the left’s long term plan to impose totalitarian socialism on the citizenry. Morality in its traditional form is the glue that binds our societies, and allows them to function as working units. Lose it, and we’re doomed to a slow but steady collapse into barbarism.

  1. You are soooo right. Excuse the pun. Situation “ethics”. MORAL RELATIVISM. No such thing as black or white, just different shades of grey. Hell, our enemies, the enemies of freedom, have never slept. They have been working in the background, busy in the foundations for years, quietly tinkering, installing rogue programmes, sowing seeds of corruption, leaning the mix, pulling out the reinforcing rods, ad infinitum. Today we face the mess. What made us strong doesn’t exist.

    Absolutely. A couple of generations of sheep too uninformed to even know what they are, living off the achievements of previous generations who built it for them–and gradually running it into the ground.
    And these sheeple have the damn nerve to denigrate and ridicule the generations who built it for them.

  3. I recall reading somewhere about how the Bolshevik party was open to various forms of sexual libertinism but once cemented in power Stalin started purging all known homosexuals.

    Too many of the so-called “right” in NZ believe an anything-goes morality equates to liberty.

  4. This is a huge problem but not surprising. In raising my children, even before I returned to the Catholic faith, I tried to teach them right from wrong (which they knew, they just need reinforced and modelled to them). However, when my son one day did something which I told him off for that he knew was wrong, that he couldn’t forgive himself for, I gained an understanding a big part of what is missing for many children in their moral formation – recognition of a wrong and forgiveness for that wrong by a greater authority than themselves (ie God). Without that, all a person can do is either go mad or turn off the moral sense so it doesn’t bother them anymore.

    Indeed, Peter.
    And we wonder why the following terms/concepts are all but unknown by many of the younger generation (and even some adults) of today:

    • honour
    • integrity
    • honesty
    • respect
    • obedience
    • punctuality
    • patience
    • putting others first
    • compassion
    • selfless acts
    • sympathy

    [and I’m sure I’ve missed some]

  6. I have 2 negative thumbs next to my last comment where I agree with Redbaiter that some people think that doing good can make up for lack of forgiveness. I don’t agree that it is effective, just that it is what some people think. And yet Redbaiter’s comment, which I quote, has no negative thumbs. So I can only conclude that me agreeing with Redbaiter is what the negative thumbs are for.
