ETHICAL ISSUES: The PROGRESSIVE – LIBERAL ETHIC II

THE ETHICS(?) OF LIBERALISM

The secularization of America has been underway since about 1930, when the Frankfurt School came to America.  The Obama administration is clearly progressive and secular, although the country as a whole is not and never has been.

The Founders, not all Christian but religious to a man, agreed in principle that the law of God precedes and overrules the laws of man.  This is clearly written into the Declaration, to wit: “(the) people…to assume among the Powers of the Earth the separate and equal Station to which the laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them…” and “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights…” and alluded to in the Constitution: “the Blessings of Liberty…”.  Moreover, the Constitution prohibits laws that would establish a national

THE CONSTITUTION: THE FIRST AMENDMENT

ETHICS and the CONSTITUTION

The First Amendment to the Constitution protects religion from government but not the reverse, and in no way demeans religion or its effects.

Freedom of religion is ensured by the First Amendment, as are other freedoms as well. But in cases where a religion conflicts with our Constitution or its protections, the Law must prevail. This is the case with Islam, which along with its (Muslim) religion includes an ideology (embracing Sharia Law) that does not recognize the freedoms ensured by the Constitution but is instead in opposition to them. The Qu’ran is in direct conflict with our inalienable rights among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and human rights generally. It  does not tolerate any religion other than Islam (further evidence of our Judeo-Christian roots—Islam was not in any way a factor in our founding and is not supported by

ETHICS and UNETHICS IN GOVERNMENT

ETHICAL ISSUES:  GOVERNMENT

We’ve chosen the non-word UNETHICS as the evil twin of ethics.  If unethical is a word, then unethics might be its valid parent.  If ethics (loosely, that which is right, good and true) is founded in truth, then unethics (conversely that which is wrong, bad and false) is founded in lies, i.e., Unethics = lies.  We need this word, so let’s use it…

One of the first things that comes to mind is the role of unethics in our government, where it’s evident from the top down.  Let’s start at the top, where it begins.

Lying to get elected has become an accepted political strategy endorsed by academia.  A Professor at the Chicago School of Business tells us that people lie because they are expected to lie–he calls it an “expectations trap.”  (This of course says as much

ETHICAL ISSUES: PC and RACISM

ETHICS: RACISM AS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

Racist!  An epithet guaranteed to raise hackles on both sides of the accusation.  Its hallowed definition has come to mean ‘whites’ demeaning ‘blacks’ or other groups, a definition worthy of political correctness.

It’s common knowledge that 90-percant of ‘blacks’ voted for Barack Obama in 2012.  That bell-curve is skewed ‘way beyond any reasonable statistical degree of probability known to mankind.  Is it possible that blacks voted for Obama simply because he is black?  Of course it is, and that was clearly the case.  This is a classic example of racism, but is it called such?  Of course not.  That would be politically incorrect.

The infamous OJ Simpson trial is another case in point.  Simpson was clearly guilty of murder—he admitted it—but was found innocent.  The verdict was racially motivated, another case of racism.  But it is not politically correct to label it as such.  To do so would be ‘racist.’
