Moral Superiority — Again

Original article

I recently gave a talk about moral superiority and was asked, “Yes, yes, but what of the people who have morals but do not consider themselves morally superior?”

Answer: In addition to being morally superior, they are dishonest. Having morals is always a case of moral superiority.

A person subscribes to particular morals because they are better than other morals. Other morals are wrong. If all morals were equal, they wouldn’t be morals, they’d be preferences. They would lose their weight as morals. If you say something is a law, but it’s fine for people to violate it and enforce contradictory laws, it is not a law. It’s a preference.
