"What basic psychological distortion can be found in every civilization of which we know anything? The only psychological force capable of producing these perversions is morality - the concept of right and wrong. The re-interpretation and eventual eradication of the concept of right and wrong are the belated objectives of nearly all of psychotherapy."
Dr. G. Brock Chisolm
(1896-1971) Canadian psychiatrist, medical practitioner, World War I veteran, first head of the World Federation of Mental Health, first director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO)

    Since many philosophers and professional thinkers consider themselves the smartest mind in any given room, it comes as no surprise that they would want remove morality, and more specifically God being the source of all morality. Then whatever their opinion of what is right or wrong can be promoted unencumbered and without concern for consequences that they would be accountable for. To them, there are no moral absolutes, and do not want opposing viewpoints that they cannot manipulate or control. Right and wrong gets in the way.

    By way of historical perspective; societies that grow and prosper over lengthy periods of time have a measurable scale of right and wrong. Those societies that decline and cause the greatest harm - short-term and long - have or have not a measurable scale of right and wrong. The difference is the Divinely endowed natural measurement and the relationship thereto. At natural law, that law of an eternal presence is the ultimate arbitrator of right and wrong. Those individuals that believe and act contrary to that natural law, which was endowed to the family of Man from their Eternal Father, have basic psychological problems - illustrated through their anti or nonnatural law of morality. As an example: Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. (John Adams) The current occupying statist theocracy infesting this land is antithetical to natural law, the principled morals thereof and the de jure Constitution (which was intended to limit political/legal immorality and wrong). Dicline of material increase, hate, anger, and increasing war - are all consequences of immoral distortions and civilizations that are antithetical to the natural law application of right and wrong.

    Blind reasoning deny's understanding of the Spiritual realm of natural laws of nature. The world of the human soul, Tiphereth, we find, Malachim, " kings and queens." There are two plans to consider, the Astral plan, Angels, the Mental plan Archangels. Christianity with its Principalities reside above the mental plan.
    The Sphere of Heaven, which is the causal world, the world of Will power, we find the Principalities. This is the Electronic world, in which we find the Monads. The Monad is a trio of, Spirit, Divine Soul, Human Soul. The Electronic world begins there. The Monad is related to other dimensions above Tiphereth. The lower part of the Monad is the Human soul. Superior Manas, the Causal Body, the Body of Conscious Will.There are two minds, one superior, and another inferior. At the moment the Intellectual Animas is in a Lunar state. The Moon is related to the mechanicity of nature, with the mechanical laws. Any animal has within itself, mind and emotions, Vehicles that are Related Mechanisms of Nature. We have the opportunity to create, Individual, Particular, Immortal Bodies. that do not belong to the mechanisms of nature. That is Related to the Will of God. The exercise of Study, is How to do the Will of God. " Thy Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven " The heavens is where the will of God is being done, because God is our own particular Spirit, our own own particular Monad, our own Being, god, our Monad, our Spirit, has two souls, the Divine soul that is always with him, which is the Divine Consciousness, and his Human Consciousness, the essence that the Monad created has all the experiences that we have had from the mineral kingdom until we gain the level of Human Being. That Knowledge, that Consciousness, is there with the Monad in the Electronic world, in Heaven,and our goal is to incarnate it. The heart is oracle and the Conscience bears witness in the Spirit. Therefore do that which is Upright and you will have praise of the same. God has made man Upright, but there are many devices. Know Thyself. God would have All men to be Saved and come unto the Knowledge of the Truth. Peace and Harmony.

    "Israel is blind in part until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in."
    That is Why Israel is held without excuse. The knowledge of God, from the creation of the world invisible things are clearly seen, even His eternal power and Godhead. Hence there affliction, doubled. Made evident throughout the world.

    Composing a song, a few years back, " Down by the Sea " where the rivers meet the sea and the waters are healed. " The Moon and the Stars to rule the night " God's Wisdom and Understanding. Natural law and all its inherent qualities. " He has set my hand in the rivers and my left hand in the sea." well measured by the rule that God supplies.

    From the living organism perspective, would not any promotion of death be immoral and wrong, and any promotion of life be moral and right?  And is not Socialism the vision of social abilities to create?
     -- Fredrick William Sillik, Anytown     
    Sillik LOLOLOL — hahahaha do you ever tire of being at best, a failed pseudo—psychotic  philosopher? From a living organism's perspective (a very broad absolutism) would not any promotion of death be immoral and wrong? In a general sense — yes. BUT! How old, healthy, aware of justice, aware of an after-life (atheism being so restrictive) and truly immersed is the sentient being in individual sovereignty, inalienable rights and liberty at nature's law? Promotion of life is generally a moral of nature's law.  AND, your canned cliche needs be completed; — Socialism creates poverty, pain, destruction, anger, war, chaos, helots, serf's and slaves.
