Moral Climate

The YOUTUBE link

It is said we are at the end of Humanity because of the moral climate around us because of how we implement, decide and execute our moral values based on opinions contingent on our own feelings and those around us. We were all raised to treat humanity a certain way.

Whether we accepted those values or not, they laid the foundation of our own person and at the same time influenced by other persons that either live with us, work with us or associate with us. Many of us act the way they act and justify the means by claiming the ability to be intuitive between what is right and wrong.

One has the keen ability to be cognitive in nature and decide for their own what is right and what is wrong. The human formula for thinking is basic and available to all that use their brains. Many claim to use their intuitive abilities rather than base their thinking on facts or rational that is evidence based or scientifically proven to be truth.

Regardless, how we think is how we treat humanity and all those concerns relative to the existence of mankind based on your own moral requirements. We must accept this to be fact of nature and accept this as a part of our moral foundation.

Humanity is subject to one self’s interpretations in life and may be flawed yet right in the eyes of the beholder. The contradictions are a reality we must learn to face in order to change our moral attitudes and behaviors.

Most values are contingent in nature and relative to our own desires, emotions and feelings regarding a particular matter. This causes the morality to change from person to person as what may be right for me may not be right for you because we see things different.

It is always a possibility that one’s desires, needs and feelings are created or formulated based on rational deliberations and a value system that has been created within one’s own environment whether it be personal or professional in nature. Thus what we are reflects with whom we associate or have a relationship with in our lives. It may be indicative of how we perceive and respect others in our lives.

It is also possible that because we may also use rational thinking as well as emotions we could change the moral climate if we give some leverage, weight or influences to others around us who make different choices and see the values at a different concern level as our own. The matter of having the wisdom, the courage and the stamina to seek such a change in one’s thinking comes from within and should be recognized to be more powerful than anything from the outside.
