It is my belief that everyone knows what “obedience” means, so let me ask, do you really know what morality means?
noun, plural mo·ral·i·ties
“Where there is no free agency, there can be no morality. Where there is no temptation, there can be little claim to virtue. Where the routine is rigorously proscribed by law, the law, and not the man, m ust have the credit of the conduct.” [William H. Prescott, “History of the Conquest of Peru,” 1847]
Copied from Dictionary.com
Morality – considering the consequences, whether it’s beneficial for you AND the “other(s)” that will benefit/hate, benefit/benefit, hate/benefit, hate/hate the outcome of your decisions.
Everyday, just look around you, the news… everywhere there is evidence of a society at war with itself – obedience is fighting morality. It’s easier to rule a community, a nation, a world through obedience – when everyone is “on the same page.” But obedience to a system that has not morality is the cause of… death: emotional, spiritual, physical.
If you’re one that hates what we’ve become… whether you believe you can save the world or not, you can help save someone who is on the edge of falling off the path of morality into obedience by being the living example of a better life.
