The-Tyranny-Of-Moral-Relativism

by Ian R Thorpe Moral relativism, the sdandard position of the politically correct left, is leading to the breakdown of civilised society in the west. How do we stop the decay when we are not allowed to criticize the Marxist, kleptocratic policies of left wing politicians, the scientific fraud of global warming, or the sheer infantile idiocy of same sex marriage Contact us:

The Tyranny Of Moral Relativism

by Ed Butt

Weak people always make the most ruthless, oppressive tyrants and the modern left or 'progressive liberals' as some like to style themselves, apart from being the most illiberal people ever to claim a belief in democracy are the most hypocritical and the most tyrannical. We will tell you what you may and may not think, they say; we will tell you the correct moral stance on any issue.

Their moral stance on various positions constantly shifts, this we see these politically correct, emotionally needy people jumping on whatever bandwagon seems to be gaining momentum and taking up an absolutist stance. Thus they do not see the moral contradiction in condemning domestic violence and calling for the criminalisation of martital rape but at the same time defending, in the name of multiculturalism and diversity, the right of Muslim men to beat and rape their wives.

They do not see the hypocrisy in praising 'black' culture, that strange, synthesized mash up of bad music, bad dress sense, recreational drug use and nihilism so prevelant in the inner city ghettos of the USA but totally alien to African nations but turning on African Americans who embrace conservative values and the American work ethic, calling them sellouts and Uncle Toms.

We call such hypocrisy 'moral relativism'.

Why would anybody describe this moral relativism as a tyranny? Perhaps because of the way the left, particularly in areas like the media, public serrvice and academic institutions where left wing thinking dominates, will react with fury when anybody challenges their constantly shifting certainties.

We have seen many reports of careers being wrecked and reputations trashed because somebody challenges the 'scientific consensus' on climate change or expresses opposition to demands for legalisation of same sex marriage. And yet the rise of this morality based on fads and fashions seems to have created societies that are irredeeemably fragmented and polarised. Nelow Fr. Dwight Longenecker explains in just a few paragraphs why a society without a coherent code of moral truth will eventually require a strongman to govern it:

It's helpful to read the article at the above link before Fr. Longeneker's comments but the site is not available at the time of writing (why am I not surprised). It is also helpful to know that I am not religious but a non - believer and my politics are so anto authoritarian they border on anarchism. I am not however the type of commentator who would deny anybody a hearing because tey have a different view to me. The only people I do not tolerate are those who tell me (and my readers) I have no right to express my views. Read Father Longeneker:

At the root of contemporary law in the United States (and more generally the West) is a doctrine of human rights that has become practically meaningless. This point had been simmering for some time, until this past week when I saw a massive McDonald's billboard that proclaimed "chocolate drizzle is a right." I don't blame them; they are only using the idea of rights that's been thrown around in recent years: a right is something you really, really want, and it would be mean to deny it.

The only way that a right can make sense is if a community carefully discerns its meaning over history, and carefully distinguishes that meaning in law. There are dreadful consequences to a society if it gets rights wrong: they lose the force of argument that safeguards social goods.

Consider the right to free speech: carefully discerned, it advances goods like critiquing the excesses of a corrupt government, promoting open dialogue about contentious moral problems, and protecting scholars and jurists who navigate careful arguments in courts of law. Without such discernment, there would be plenty of imminently lawless hate speech without fear of punishment (think of the Ku Klux Klan); lying in the courtroom and on the congressional floor; false advertising; political calumny. It would create mayhem, and virtually all forms of public communication would become rather meaningless.

An analogous argument applies to marriage. It took the Church and the nations of the West about thirteen centuries to get the legal definition of marriage right, but it's taken only a few decades to change course. No longer do we think of marriage as a healing of the two halves of the human family, and a call (especially to predatory men) to social responsibility to benefit women and ensure the welfare of children. We have come to think of marriage as a sexual relationship we really want. It is no wonder that according to the Centers for Disease Control, fewer people are marrying: the bar is extremely low.

In two earlier essays I argued that Christians should promote a view of marriage that has evolved over these centuries of reflection, yet I suggested that our promotion of this view should be moral and spiritual rather than legal, to avoid causing hurt to our friends and family who seek out gay relationships. But that was a false dichotomy, and I am thankful to commentators (examples here and here) who elucidated why legal argument must be part of that public witness.

Beneath all of this is the underlying tyranny of relativism. We dare not “judge” other actions because we have been taught that there is no such thing as right or wrong. We have been taught to believer that it is right to be wrong, or at least that we should have the right to be wrong, and not only have the right to be wrong, but to impose that right to be wrong on everyone else. In other words, you must not only allow me to be wrong, but you must say that my wrong is not only my right, but that my wrong is right.

If the preceding paragraph made you think twice and read thrice, then I have achieved my purpose, for the world of moral relativism is a world of double think and double talk where nothing means anything and anything can mean nothing. Morality is reduced to “you say po-TAY- to and I say po-TAH-to. Let’s call the whole thing off.” And it is “off” way off, and not only way off, but way out, and if way out, then let us hope it is on it’s way out, for a world of moral relativism is dangerous. Deadly dangerous.

It is deadly dangerous because when there are not moral absolutes the state decides what is right and wrong, and when the state decides what is wrong, the rulers of that state will invariably decide that what is right is what is best for them, and what is best for them is that which consolidates their wealth and their power. When the state decides what is right and wrong, and has the power to enforce what they decide is right and wrong, they will do so.

Furthermore, when moral relativism reigns it is not long before chaos and anarchy prevail. (It’s a logical consequence–if there is no right and wrong you may do as you wish) and when anarchy and chaos prevail the state has the reason and the obligation to establish order, and among an anarchic population that order can only be established by force.

But why would anyone call moral relativism a “dictatorship”? You might well ask. Anybody who frquents certain online forums at sites where I post occasional articles whold not need to askm having witnessed they hysterical mob turning on a person who questions the relevance of same sex marriage whith accusations og homophobia (a nonsensical word which displays the ignorance of politically correct thinking, From Greek raher than latin it means 'fear of the same thing?') Similarly anybody who criticizes the government of President Barack Obama is accused of racism and shouted down, even if their complaing was about his economic policy.

My only point of contention with Fr. Longenecker on this issue is his abuse of the term anarchy. Meaning no government, anarchy is a well thought out if impossibly idealistic political philosophy that proposes in a society with no government, order can be maintained through personal responsibility. More often now however, anarchy is equated to lawlessness. In a truly anarchic society a shared moral code, observed by all, would maintain order. In a lawless society a tyrannical big government or a brutal dictatorship would eventually emerge.

Time is NOT real: Physicists show EVERYTHING happens at the same time

The concept of time is simply an illusion made up of human memories, everything that has ever been and ever will be is happening RIGHT NOW. That is the theory according to a group of esteemed physicists who aim to solve one of the universe’s mysteries.
Most people do not even consider the concept of time but there is nothing in the laws of physics to state that it should move in the forward direction that we know. The laws of physics are symmetric ultimately meaning that time could have easily moved in a backward direction as it does forward. Indeed some adherents to the ‘big crunch’ theory say time WILL run backwards when the universe stops expanding and starts contracting back in on itself.
