People don’t think enough about morality. If you’ve never heard the term, it is the system of what is “right” or “wrong” or “good” or “bad”. I think a great problem in this world is that people assume that their standard is the only standard of morality. No one can seem to agree on what morality is or where it comes from. This is something humans must work together to settle.
If there was a standard which made perfect sense, maybe everyone in the world could come to an agreement. All forms of violence could end. I highly doubt that people can consider the possibility of world peace. Yet is that not the goal many people have? To live in a world free from suffering?
My question is, why wouldn’t a “paradise” be possible? Many people have a concept of “heaven” yet seem to make no effort towards it. Even if we can’t achieve the ideal world, I think it can be much better than it is now.
For it to work, a standard of morality must be invented which does not change based on how a person feels or even how we assume God feels. People need a reason to stop the harmful things which are destroying this planet. For any action a human takes, there needs to be some logic. We need better reasons than “The bible said so.”, “God said so.”, “My great granddaddy told me once.”, or “It seemed like a good idea at the time.”.
