DO WE NEED FREE SPEECH OR MORAL FREE SPEECH?

The constitution of the United States guarantees free speech but the reality is that in the extremes of free speech you have profanity, insults, name calling, put downs, humiliation, ridicule, lies, appeals to violence and fundamentally libelous and slanderous remarks. The expression of free speech has become too chaotic and undisciplined and frankly immoral in the form of fake information and news or in effect published lies or untruths.

 

In the early days of the republic most had a moral training from religion and the educational system. Most published writers and readers of the articles and books where relatively literate compared to the rest of the population and had a sense of what right and wrong was as far as communication was concerned. Today with an anything goes philosophy as far as free speech is concerned, free speech is now getting out of control to the detriment of the fabric of civil discourse publically and privately.

 

The leaders of tomorrow are no longer getting good moral training in the educational system. Instead there is primarily an emphasis on ideological purity or politically correct thinking and the ultimate result is and will be immoral leaders and followers and oppressive censorship of the internet or a tyranny of the mind and also body. Who can you trust if the leadership no longer has integrity and can’t serve as moral role models for the led? Yes, lying information and news must be censored but the leadership must also censor itself and expunge corrupt lying, stealing, deceptive leaders and humans from their ranks. Whether it is possible to create a moral leadership from a corrupt immoral one without a moral revival in the nation is debatable.

 

I am still optimistic about the future and have written extensively on a secular moral code which should be taught to all impressionable minds worldwide and have proposed educational reforms, welfare reforms, and constitutional reforms. I also have composed a logical English dictionary which should greatly reduce human emotional irrationality in the world. I am pessimistic about the destruction of biodiversity which is vital for future generations but fortunately I won’t live long enough to experience the radical extinctions which I foresee.

 

The globalists don’t really care what happens to any one nation and will rule the world with their financial clout no matter how much any individual nations will suffer. That said every future aspiring globalist should read my books and articles since I too am philosophically a globalist interested in improving humanity and conserving and even expanding wilderness real estate.

WHAT ARE SOME REASONS AND EXAMPLES OF THE DETERIORATION OF MORAL VALUES???

An example of a modern secular moral code gives a sample of important moral values. In nonemergency situations- don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder. The 10 commandments which have been the basis for Judeo Christian morality have been watered down to 6 with two new modern moral principles- don’t destroy biodiversity and don’t be inefficient.

 

It is significant to differentiate between moral values and about 50 core values or other ethical principles which vary in degree from situation to situation such as caring, empathy, friendliness, cooperation, sharing, discipline, courtesy, etc. which are also vital to maintaining wholesome helpful human interactions and are reflections of basic humanity and are mostly indicators of relatively peaceful human cohesion and interactive complexity. Moral values are basically cross cultural essentials  or must exist in most modern cultures and core values vary in degrees from culture to culture and from individual to individual.

 

To all those interested in pursuing and understanding the difference between moral and core values I refer you to my book SECULAR MORAL CODE which goes into the necessary detail for a better understanding of the difference between moral values and other ethical principles.

 

Perhaps the only important moral value which is not rapidly deteriorating in the west is don’t murder. The rates of homicide in the general population have basically stabilized, except in some big cities.

 

Crime rates have also generally stabilized with the exception of some metropolitan areas so we can assume that traditional stealing is also not increasing at an alarming rate. The high incarceration rate, surveillance cameras in many places, and theft protection devices may be contributing factors to the relatively stable stealing rate.

 

In the United States internet stealing or theft is about 1.4 billion dollars a year and probably increasing on a yearly basis so we are confronted with the challenge of a modern form of stealing which is not stable or decreasing.

 

Due to the promotion and more general acceptance of promiscuity, adultery is on the increase in the United States. Financial hardship is one major contributor to divorce but a second major cause is marital infidelity. Family life is deteriorating and there are fewer and fewer healthy financially and morally responsible two parent households, especially nuclear families.

 

A common shared morality is a major reason why males and females stay together in matrimony over the long duration. If a married male and female don’t lie to one another then there can be trust in the relationship, if there is no adultery then there can be trust in the relationship, if both parents try to raise offspring responsibly then there is another reason why couples can and probably will want to remain together in the relationship. Break this trust with lying, adultery, deception, and excessive selfishness and this immoral behavior will ruin any relationship.

 

If you immorally lie then trust breaks down and a relationship generally does not last and the feeling of security is lost with it. There is much deception and some lying in the media mostly in the form of biased opinions without a factual foundation. Add to this the ongoing deception of politicians and abundant deceptive advertising and this leads one to conclude that trust in the establishment’s ability to rule is being destroyed even more rapidly than in the past. The tabloid like establishment press, left wing biased dogmatic academia and celebrities are an indication that lying and deception has become institutionalized and is spreading throughout society and not getting any better with time.

 

Some studies have shown that average humans lie once or twice a day, usually about minor things. Whether this is intentional or merely results from ignorance in most cases is debatable. Some studies even claim that about 40% lie on their resumes which appears to be intentional.

 

Trump has been accused of lying over 4000 times by MSNBC so far and it is debatable whether these have been intentional lies, opposition to liberal biased opinion which is now considered a lie, or merely unintentional ignorant incompetent statements about personalities, foreign and domestic affairs. Over 4000 lies in about two years is about 7 lies per day so I strongly feel that MSNBC is lying or that it is another example of establishment media fake news.

 

Not so obvious is the bad effect that very bad habits and hedonistic or live for today behavior is having on morality. There is growing drug abuse, pornography, alcoholism, mental illness, gambling, eating of unhealthy food, living from paycheck to paycheck, and a general philosophy that you should do only what makes you happy. Live for today and don’t plan for the future creates many crisis situations in daily life and morality often suffers in the long duration.

 

How many humans do you know of who have integrity or are honest and moral? These humans are indeed becoming a dying breed throughout society, top and bottom.

 

An affluent nation with less emphasis on morality gets more corrupt, gluttonous, lazy, and hedonistic with time so prosperity is not always a road to long duration moral stability. Add to this popularized relativistic situation ethics which almost justifies many bad and some immoral behavior and you have a recipe for continuing moral decline in society.

 

Many psychiatrists and psychologists are morally flawed humans out to make a buck at the expense of patients, so mental illnesses in the form of depression, anxiety, etc. are increasing and not getting any better nor are the symptoms being cured with mere pill popping.

 

Addictive bad habits are incredibly hard to change with verbal persuasion so it is no mystery why supposed professional advice givers succeed so infrequently in curing dysfunctional lifestyles in wayward adults. Yes, mental rehabilitation sometimes succeeds but it is time consuming and expensive, luxurious treatment which the average human who really needs treatment simply can’t afford.

 

Moral decay is not even addressed politically since the constitution does not mention morality directly and blindly assumes that the majority of the population will remain moral in the long duration. A common shared morality which promotes trusting behavior amongst citizens and among family members is essential to the ongoing peaceful interaction of citizens and spouses in the long duration. Letting immoral behavior flourish nationwide without punishment inevitably results in social chaos and ultimate transformation into tyranny or rule by severe censorship and rule by fear and the threat of mortal punishment.

 

When moral indoctrination of impressionable young minds in elementary school and at home is no longer done effectively, social and interpersonal cohesion suffers and society becomes ever more unpredictable and chaotic. Students must respect their teachers and parents for proper moral indoctrination to take place and that means that the teachers and parents must earn respect by being  competent moral role models and proficient disciplinarians who enforce just rules of behavior.

THE ENDS JUSTIFY THE MEANS IN SOME EMERGENCY SITUATIONS!!!

The ends justify the means is just a statement that immoral means can be used to justify a moral end. In some life or death emergency situations this is indeed the case. Immoral murder exists during war and the end of war or peace is what justifies the murder.

 

It is immoral to murder someone, especially innocent humans but during War which is a life or death emergency situation and often a case of selfdefense, immoral murder can be justified.

 

Two atomic bombs were dropped on Japan during World War II and destroyed many “innocent” Japanese but it ended the war and the killing or murder. The two atomic bombs may not have ended the war and in this case many more Japanese cities would have been fire bombed, more “innocent” lives would have been lost, and the United States would have lost about 2 million soldier’s lives. Many lives would also have been lost in Japanese conquered territories where the Japanese acted in murderous brutal fashion. Is immoral murder justified during a selfdefense war? Yes, because it is an emergency situation of life or death of a nation and it’s inhabitants.

 

Dresden, a German city, was fire bombed during the war and many “innocent” citizens were killed. However, many of those innocent humans were contributing in a major way to the German war machine and leveling Dresden definitely shortened the war to some extent and in the end saved many more lives.

 

During war immoral lying is also justified such as feeding false information to the enemy about troop positions and plans of attack. Even though there are theoretical rules of war pertaining to the humane treatment of war prisoners, especially captured soldiers, even these rules can be broken as they were by the Japanese. It is a fact of life that immoral means can be used to justify the ends which are victory or peace and the cessation of murder or killing or the end of war.

 

More recently the Iraqis in their war against ISIS bombed many innocent civilians in Mozul. ISIS also used many civilians as shields for their soldiers and even had munitions and military occupying hospitals and schools. ISIS was ruthless and to win you had to be even more ruthless and bomb the shit out of them including many civilians. Did the immoral means justify the ends? Yes, because it was war, and even a war against a military which promoted its brutal terrorism worldwide.

 

In times of peace does the immoral means ever justify a moral end? Yes, sometimes immoral lying can be justified in emergency life or death situations.

 

If you were rather well off and a stranger with a weapon knocked on your door and asked if your offspring were at home then you would probably be shocked with fear that maybe it was a kidnapper or someone who wanted to kill your offspring. You may lie and say that your offspring were not home. Even though the probability that your assumption is wrong is probably rather great, trying to protect your flesh and blood from possible imminent harm with a lie can be justified. Better safe than sorry.

 

Although this is not a serious issue in most developed nations you could justify immoral stealing of food to feed you and your starving offspring in a crisis situation, especially in a third world extreme poverty situation.

 

Although not legally considered murder you can intentionally kill or immorally murder a lethally armed assailant in selfdefense. Once again it is a life or death emergency situation where either you or the assailant will die.

 

You may be able to come up with more life or death emergency situations where immoral acts may be justified but I will point out one which is not valid.

 

You may try to justify the immoral murder of one healthy individual to save the life of three dying patients who need a heart, liver, and bladder transplant. Your logic or reasoning may be that murdering one to save the lives of three is justified. However, follow this logic in the long duration and you will find that you definitely would not want to live in a society where many innocent victims would be murdered to save the lives of three or more unhealthy individuals needing transplants. You may be the next chosen to sacrifice your life so that many unhealthy individuals may live. That would be true injustice in society in the short and long duration.

 

Immoral means can seldom be justified to achieve a seemingly moral end in times of peace. If you feel that immorally stealing money or taxation is unjust then you are a moral purist and unfortunately taxation is a serious exception to the absolute moral rule.

 

There are basically 5 situations where stealing can be justified and I have written about these exceptions in my blog article and book STEAL. Yes, unfortunately many things in life are not black or white, yes or no, or completely moral or completely immoral, but shades of grey or exceptions to an absolute rule.

THE LEFT IS WAGING A GRADUAL WAR AGAINST INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS AND TRUTH AND IT WILL PROBABLY WIN IN THE LONG DURATION!!!

Most of academia, celebrities, big corporations, and the establishment press have been and are promoting current dogmatic left wing orthodoxy or ideology with an intolerant form of character assassination of the individual and a trampling of individual rights.

 

They stereotype you and discredit you with misstatements or statements taken out of context, stereotype you as an unacceptable ideologue with guilt by association with individuals from hated groups which you may have had contact historically, and commonly force you into stereotyped subhuman categories such as racists, homophobes, Islamaphobes, misogynists, etc. and thereby accuse you being unacceptable humans worthy of censorship and hatred.

 

More and more to enter academia, gain celebrity status, work for a major corporation, or become a member of the declining establishment press you must pass the political correctness left wing test. Fail the left wing test and the probability that you will gain national or international recognition is quite low.

 

This group cultural war with political power as its main goal mercilessly utilizes smears and lies to try to ruin the reputations of individuals who deviate from leftist dogma and are trying to survive financially with careers in the real world.

 

The truth and facts have never been popular with the masses so it is not surprising that much of the left dogma ignores facts and reality and barrels forward with it’s unrelenting brainwashing in academia, the entertainment industry, large corporations, and the establishment press which is greatly in decline but desperate to get their credibility back.

 

A censoring destructive merciless dogmatic group assault on individuals and individual rights is unfortunately not a valid solution or replacement for moral decay since morality is of primary importance for any flourishing ongoing society. Financially healthy moral family units are in great decline and the moral reputation of the leadership has sunken to new lows. What the nation and world really needs is a moral revival with a universal secular moral code taught to all impressionable young minds in elementary school and not a tyrannical uniformly imposed dogmatic leftist ideology worldwide.

 

What does the future look like? It will probably be control by international big money banks, big money international corporations, and bribed politicians spouting a dogmatic left wing ideology which keeps the masses stupid and unaware of the new ruling tyranny of uniform thought or leftist ideology. I am only slightly optimistic that things will get better in the next 20 years for the average American but the top 1% and those on welfare will be doing just fine living off of what remains of the working middle class.

 

The truth is a hard pill to swallow and relatively few choose to do so. I am one of the few who have pursued truth with a passion for a lifetime so check out or search my encyclopedic blog and books if interested. You will learn a lot about human nature, some science, and then some. Happy hunting. Enjoy!!!
