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 ULTIMATE IDEOCRASY WHICH SHOULD RULE OVER ALL IDEOLOGIES.

Ideocrasy: n. rule and/or government based on ideology and/or theory

Whether you are talking about Democracy, Republicanism, Socialism, Communism, Clericism, etc. none will survive in the long duration if it is not ruled by a just morality from which most laws should be deduced and improved upon.

Yes, there will always be the question of individual rights versus majority or collective rights and the often ignored importance of quality over quantity in the long duration but there should be an ultimate ideocrasy or morality which should be taught to all impressionable young minds in any nation or system of government.

When offspring become adults they will realize that any system is not just for everyone and needs improvement. There should be some semblance of certainty as to what is right or wrong so the system can continue to prosper with relative security and peaceful interactions between humans of any nation and across political borders. What ensures this stability, justice, and peaceful interactions? A worldwide just moral code or idiocrasy backed up by just laws which get more just with time and not more unjust or more immoral with time.

A child should understand that it is OK to say in a critical way “you lied to me or you stole from me and that is immoral”. Yes, when the child becomes an adult he or she will realize that the government steals in the form of taxation for the theoretical greater good and there are some emergency situations where stealing and lying can be justified. The adult will realize that society is filled with deceptions and untruths but hopefully a childish sense of justice will prevail and the adult will mostly seek out honest, moral, sincere, dependable, trustworthy, competent humans to associate with the most.

That said the ultimate ideocrasy or morality for the modern age is- in non emergency 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.

PRELIMINARY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW A 6 POINT SECULAR MORAL CODE CAN BE PRESENTED OR IMPLEMENTED IN SECULAR GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS WORLDWIDE!!!!!!

59-1-3

Don’t destroy biodiversity:  

Conserve and gradually expand wilderness areas and try to maintain preserves for regional wildlife. Minimize toxic pollution, promote sustainability, and promote organic food diversity locally and internationally.       

Don’t lie:  

Define and give examples of libel. Itemize punishments for private lying and deception such as exclusion from a profession, organization, or friendship. Emphasize that one big lie or many smaller lies and deceptions can ruin the hard earned reputation of individuals and organizations almost overnight when the public becomes aware of them.

Honesty or not lying and deceiving is the basic reason bonding occurs between humans who can then begin to trust one another and live in relative peace and security. Dishonest leaders and dishonest organizations are also not trusted by the public and their reputation is also often very bad.

Don’t be inefficient:

Promote sustainable manufacturing with an emphasis on recycling of garbage and waste.

Promote the use of computer software and robots to do time consuming repetitive tasks in government, business, and at home.

Give examples of inefficient human behavior and the bad potential consequences from human extremes such as too much talking, too much irresponsible spending, too much useless education, too much entertainment, too much arguing, too much drinking and eating, too much greed or selfishness, too many bad addictive behaviors, too much lust, too much sex, too much fear, too much pride, too much risk taking, too much envy, etc. etc.

Do research and studies to determine what are the best ways to optimize human communications and get the most done with the least amount of energy expenditure or effort.

Of course competence is a primary component of efficiency so attempts should be made in the educational system to graduate competent humans with useful skills, useful knowledge, and useful social behavior.

Don’t steal:

Define steal and promote its first basic understanding to young impressionable minds as the theft of personal information and the theft of the possessions of individuals and organizations.

There are five justifiable conditions under which humans and/or the government can steal and this can be presented to moral teenage offspring and moral adults. Taxation to protect the citizenry from immoral citizens and immoral nations is a primary justification with a secondary justifiable emphasis on the controversial taxation for the general welfare or infrastructure and a social welfare safety net for the unemployed and also destitute. 

Don’t commit adultery if married:

A healthy financially responsible moral family unit is the foundation of any social and national success. Next to

. money, adultery is the second most likely reason why divorce occurs and ruins good role models for offspring who themselves may choose to propagate at some point in the future and be burdened by the same parental dysfunctional relationship problems. 

Don’t murder:

Define the murder of humans and take into consideration the fact that an accident may result in death and that murder can be justified in personal and national and/or international selfdefense.

A personal reason for murder is as a criminal threatening to use violent force on you with a deadly weapon such as a firearm. In national and/or international selfdefense proven terrorists or verified true members of declared terrorist groups can be terminated in their country of origin or at a minimum temporarily arrested in a foreign country to determine whether they have been framed unjustly.

THE TRUTH ABOUT KILL*

10-KILL

Kill: v. to murder a lifeform(s) with logical justification(s)

Humans kill domesticated and sometimes unfortunately wild plants and animals for food which is justified because humans must eat to survive.

Killing for fun is also done too and justified because of overpopulation of wildlife because of the absence of natural predators.

There are even killing ranches where animals are bred to be shot by hunters for profit.

The humane society kills many injured, diseased, and unwanted pets and animals, especially when the supply exceeds the demand and when the animal shelters are filled to overcapacity.

Humans are killed in selfdefense when threatened with a lethal weapon and killed in wartime in selfdefense from violent aggression and this kind of killing is also logically justified.

It should be a costly crime to kill wilderness plants and animals because it will be our safety net for healthy food when irresponsible and myopic destruction of healthy domesticated plants and animals continues with the use of toxic chemicals, factory animal farming, unnatural GMO’s, and monoculture agriculture.

Organic healthy food is the only hope of not having to resort to the use of the wilderness safety net of healthy food in the near future.

Conserve and even expand wilderness at all costs!!!!!!
