Beyond Good & Evil
It seems that morality is a fairly universal trait purpose the rules of morality are not. What is good and what is taboo is different from place to place in the world, and to be sure, it is even feckin 'different over time!
 
So should we give up our ideal, our illusion of universal morality?
 
QUESTIONS
(Quite A Few questions, so feel free to come along Saying That exits Would you MOST like to the Cat!)
  1. Can people be Rightly classified as good or evil: in How They think; How They act; in Who They Are? 
  1. Is evil & natural malevolence? Are "evil" and "malevolent" simply terms we use to describe what we do not like?
  1. Is compassion (kindness?) A moral obligation? Should be used compassion to help us deal with "pure evil"?
  1. What is the place for the individual to determine His Own morality (a Nietzsche #)? By the by, Nietzsche's position Would APPEAR to be Contrary to Peterson & Prager Who Refer to _him_, goal Both APPEAR to appeal to capital gains derived from "something transcendent & absolute" (Petersen 17'41 "*).
  1. Do you believe people are mostly good? (Prager 22'34 "*) Do you think we are living in a" rotten "world?" (Prager 30'14 "*) Can an individual hold Both of These Simultaneously positions? What Gives?
THOUGHT-STARTERS
 
# Nietzsche is famous and infamous, Regarded Both-have inspired and loony. In His book  Beyond Good & Evil . Nietzsche (as I Understand it) rejected the idea of a universal morality, and INSTEAD, reserved praise and the moniker of "good" for the individual courageous enough to break free of herd mentality, Who sets Their Own capital gains. What if others do not think it is good - ah well, That Would Be Their problem!
 
* Peterson & Pragar interview. Kind of interesting, great explorations of good & evil, morality, the role of something transcendent & absolute. Lots of contradictions to pick up! If you prefer to read the transcript (like me), you can left-click on the three dots to the bottom left of the video and choose "Open Transcript" - and it will APPEAR to the right.
