Post all your comments on the nature of morals here. For me, I do not believe that
morals are absolute and natural; they are given on to everybody through the society,
as a mean to protect itself. Here is an excerpt from an article I wrote on Disney
I don’t agree with the idea of good and evil. For me, there is only what is
beneficial to me and what is not. I don’t see how these villains are considered
“bad”. It’s just a way to subdue the general populace into believing morals. I
am amoral; I think of morals as beliefs necessary for the society to function.
However, I do not agree with their subverted way of enforcing it upon people. They
should just explain that the society would fall apart if we killed, stealed, or
whatever was against morals. I believe lying is a skill that we all need, lying gives
us more “fitness”, therefor we are all good liars, since our ancestors must’ve
been good liars in order to survive.
