    Simply convince people it is moral to impose upon the rights of others.

    After all, who can argue against 'morality'? Isn't it always on the side of the 'good'? No one seems eager to ask who exactly defines 'good' or 'moral'.

    This man was the great inspiration along with Darwin that created the extermination camps of Hitler. This is simply the thoughts of evil. Take one part Darwin, one part Nietzsche, and one part Marks and you have an Adolph Hitler or a Joseph Stalin..

    I'm not quite sure how to rate this; 5 stars for accuracy or a thumbs down for the "who's" / "what" morals. Currently, the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land's theocratic seminaries (government schools) evangelical propagandists (MSM), entertainment, etc., etc., etc. are all leading the vast majority's moral existence to destruction of biblical proportions. The morals that harmonize with liberty, peace, respect for life and natural law are either disparaged or are such a distant concept that ignorance veils most understanding and/or acceptance thereof.

    Conscience is a pawn of tyrants, who seek usury of a ignorant, willing, reprobate mind. " And I beheld, and lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beast, and in the midst of the elders, stood a lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth." Rev 6:6. With that being said a new administration comes forth, "For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the Lord, which run to and fro through the whole earth." Zec 4:10 The eyes of the Lord are in every place." Prov 15:3. The eyes of the Lord preserve knowledge, and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor." Prov 22:12 As the headstone of understanding has seven eyes, there are but seven notes in the harmonious musical scale at natural law. God is not the author of confusion. " As it is written, Behold, I lay in Zion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth On him shall not be ashamed." Romans 9:33 The Rock upon which the Republic rest. That Rock has seven eyes through which we see very clearly our Liberty and Freedom.

    Morality is often the excuse for immoral acts. The intent is the same: to induce FEAR, to intimidate. Note that the 'enemy' defines morality differently -- their war is also a 'holy' war.
