Question: Is morality just an excuse to make us feel good?
Answer: Yes. We can’t talk about “absolute morality, ethics” as long as we are all blindly driven by our inherently self-serving, self-justifying, egotistic and subjective nature, perception.
We can tentatively agree on certain guidelines, frameworks but we will all break it, cheat it at the first given chance.
If we want to build a different Human society based on stable, objective moral foundations, first we need to find a way of exciting our inherent behaviour, reactions through the right, purposeful, practical educational method.
