Malfunctioning moral compasses and modernity

06 Dec

You know what happens to a compass placed next to a metal bar? It goes haywire, pointing this way and that – anyone who then uses it as a navigational aid will go nowhere fast.

The same goes for the moral compass placed next to the secular modern ethos. People can no longer orient themselves in a kaleidoscopically changing landscape, especially when the landscape becomes a battlefield.

        I begin to wonder if most people even WANT moral compasses.

        No; they want to sin.

        To add to that, when I see police videos of them violating the law, I want to do what Arlo Guthrie described while sitting on the Group W bench. Do I have a moral compass because I want to do terrible things to those who have thrown away their moral compasses?

        If you missed the Group W reference, there is a gap in your cultural education and you need to see the whole video. 🙂
