THE 4 STAGES OF MORAL DEVELOPMENT BY ULDIS SPROGIS!!!

The first stage is the premoral stage or the stage that young offspring are at where they view every behavior in terms of reward or punishment. Since their inborn human nature is very selfish with a desire to take for personal benefit and to dominate or control others including siblings and parents, the premoral stage is where the wild human animal is being conditioned to behave according to acceptable social norms and the norms of the family.

The second stage which really exists throughout adult life also is the stage where you realize that there are exceptions to behavioral rules. For example, you may have to say please, thank you, and hold the door open for strangers in public but in the privacy of your home you can forgo these public behavioral norms and even curse once in a while. You come across different behavior rules in school, on the job, in a profession, and speaking in public so you realize that there are rules to fit the occasion or the circumstance.

As an adult you learn that stealing can be justified in emergency situations if you are starving with skin and bones and on the verge of dying in a big city, unless of course you have accessible garbage dumpsters.

Lying can be justified in emergency situations if a criminal with a visible gun asks if your offspring are at home.

If someone at the point of a gun orders you to commit adultery then you may have to obey him or her as long as you are in their presence and in imminent danger of death which is another emergency situation.

The third stage of moral development is an adult obeying the law as a duty to society at large and to personally avoid a penalty fee or possible prison.

The fourth stage of moral development is the constitutional stage where you consider questions of individual and minority versus majority rights. Here we have the concept of human welfare and how far society should go or pay to protect the rights of the individual or minority.

The reverse is also a consideration and the moral question is what percentage of individual income should go towards the general welfare or general good to avoid enslavement of the individual or a minority. Concepts such as gender equality, gay rights, religious rights, free or moral speech, and quality and/or quantity of human life are also constitutional moral and legal questions.

 

Conclusion:

There is the first premoral stage of development when you are learning the basic rules and morality as offspring with rewards and punishments,

the second stage at which you learn that there are not only exceptions to behavioral norms but emergency exceptions to basic moral norms too,

the third adult stage where you try to obey the law for personal and societal benefit,

and the fourth constitutional stage where you debate the concepts of individual and minority rights versus majority rights and try to strike an acceptable realistic balance between the three rights. The moral questions of just taxation, just government budgeting, minimizing environmental damage, and tolerance of minority values is of importance and appropriate changes in the constitution are made if necessary.

THE TRUTH ABOUT PRIVACY

cyberlock_740_4161

The three basic areas where privacy matters is individual, business, and government privacy.

If you are a private citizen then you would probably not want to reveal a pre-existing medical condition, many car accidents, three or more divorces, illegal drug use, bad school grades, jobs which your were fired from, more than one bankruptcy, that you are a cult member, and your bank account information. You would probably prefer that they all be kept secret or out of public view because it could jeopardize an ability to get a good job or start up a successful relationship with the opposite sex.

Humans make many stupid mistakes in life and do some very stupid things which they are not proud of and are things which they don’t want to be reminded of or hope will never surface publicly. Starting with a clean slate or a fresh new start is getting harder and harder to do in the era of internet communications and electronic listening devices.

Businesses fear competition and frequently have trade secrets which they don’t want to surface. China is a perfect example which manufactures knock off products and tries to sell them worldwide severely cutting into the profitability of some companies. Electronic counterfeiting is even threatening to damage the reliability of military software and hardware and electronics in airlines.

Governments fear military confrontations, cyber warfare, and criminal organizations.

Privacy is getting harder and harder to maintain and trustworthy government judges and criminal enforcers with excellent reputations have to be in charge if justice is to prevail. Unfortunately society is getting more immoral and hedonistic as time progresses and honest, sincere, and trustworthy individuals to rely upon are becoming very scarce not only privately but in government positions.

Unless morality is restored in the general public, soon the leadership will get even more corrupt than now and we will not be able to trust them with private information. Privacy is the shield under which criminality thrives and this is also true of government privacy which can seek to eliminate political competition and rule supreme.

Open source government except in the military is vital to ensuring that we don’t avalanche into an oppressive tyrannical untrustworthy government which rules by the threat of force and the rule of force having intimate knowledge about our private lives and business organizations.

Privacy: n. behaviors of one or more human(s) which is hidden and frequently not public knowledge

CONCLUSION:

Loss of personal privacy is not all that bad because it creates fear in individuals and demotivates many from doing stupid illegal things in life. Privacy in government if it does not deal with military defense is always bad and we should fight for as much open source government as possible.

I personally don’t fear the invasion of my privacy if it protects the money in my bank account from hackers. I am slightly concerned about the monopoly of the media by big business interests and fear that the freedom of information to stay intelligently informed may soon disappear. A reliable unbiased source of true information may slowly disappear. Unbiased information should not be replaced with rumors and gossip on the social network which may soon be the only reliable source of true needed information.
