Criminal organizations commit immoral actions on other humans but within the organization there is a common morality. Don’t lie and steal from on each other but it is OK to lie, kill, and steal from others outside the group. Similarly the Talmud teaches that it is not OK to lie and steal from Jews but it is OK to lie, kill, and steal from others if it benefits the Jews. Hopefully the Talmud is ancient history which should die a timely death in the 21st century.
Tyrants also follow this same policy and don’t lie and steal from those in leadership positions but think nothing of lying, stealing, and even killing the ruled who oppose them. Group thinking can be immoral but the members of the group are not immoral towards themselves.
Politicians or the rulers also lie and steal in deceptive ways which keeps the ruled complacent without protest. This is why the leadership of the world is fundamentally corrupt because they don’t follow the morality taught to the led.
When the world leadership is just as moral as the led are expected to be, then there can truly be world peace among nations. As long as nations think that they can lie and steal from one another then no world peace is possible.
Some individuals also believe that they can lie and steal from others if they can get away with it for their own personal benefit.
What is the new secular morality which all the nations of the world and humanity should start practicing? It is except in 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.
