The way I see it, is my morals come from two things.... (And excuse me if I'm repeating what others have said much more eloquently)... What I want for myself being the first. For example, I don't want to be killed, so I tend not to go around killing others. I rather like being alive. So I guess it's the "golden rule" at work.

Secondly they come from what I've been taught by my family/social group/society. As a social species we tend to adopt the morals of those people who we are raised around, for survival, etc.

Obviously this is not 100 percent the case, people obviously adopt other ideas and change. But I'm just speaking for myself.

*shrug*
morality merely is the personal whim of the individual.

in fact morals don't really exist. anything goes in life. anything

RE: Morality
These are the basic norms of modern society.

Moral absolutism is an early modern ideal, it doesn't hold in contemporary society.

demolishing or demonising or deminishing?

Also, please clarify...

Your last post implies you think that "most in modern society adhere to" "a "laissez-faire" moral system"

whereas your earlier post states that you think that...
"most people in modern society DON'T have a laissez-faire moral system."

I know this from everyday interactions.

You failed to clarify concerning your contradiction.

Please try again.

Generally contradictions are viewed as bad things, waste of space.
