RE: How a society survives with immorality
I'll just say that if morality isn't evolving and culturally relative, then it's objective. Anyone here willing to argue that morality is objective?

I'm just curious to know how people react to these two facts.

1 - More Americans have been killed by other Americans than American soldiers killed by enemy soldiers in every single war the US has ever fought combined.

2 - The United States of America has the highest per-capita incarceration rate in the world.

Peace and Love and Empathy,

Matt

Just very briefly, do many people really care.

An objective Kantian morality holding absolute truths in my opinion would be far too restrictive in terms of the required nuancing of concepts.
Moral relativism can mean that smart thinking can justify any manner of things, and utilitarianism tends to trample on minorities.

There is also something of a problem with man freedoms (so called) running rough shod over more basic life style needs, in the name of consumerism and " any want" satiation that will create a monetary surplus.................
