Perils of replacing Judeo-Christian morality by politically correct one
Posted by Vladimir Minkov
In the 18th century, the morality of the Torah/Bible Ten Commandments and their derivatives have created a spiritually and economically strong American Nation – in the 20th century, the morality of the politically correct “progressive” commandments are destroying all that.
At the core of Judeo-Christian morality, lays the Golden Rule, which states that in a nation (the Golden Rule had been created for a group of people who lived together, knew each other and had mutual understanding of what is Good and what is Bad for them, and that is how a nation is defined), “one should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself”. If it is so, the role of a human government in a Golden-Rule nation should be not to manage the lives of individuals and various human communities but rather to protect and defend the diverse communities from possible internal and external violators of the Golden Rule.
At the core of politically correct morality, lays a sort of Oppression Rule, which states that various human communities in a nation are adversary to each other and the role of a human government has to manage adversarial relations among adversarial communities – manage through government laws and regulations.
The American Judeo-Christian morality unites the nation while the politically correct morality fractures the nation
The politically correct morality fractures the nation by splitting it into adversary groups such as African-American, Hispanic American, Native American, etc., which, as the politically correct troops declare, have been oppressed by the chief oppressors being the White Americans, right-wing extremists and Christian fundamentalists. The oppressed groups should be compensated for economic and moral suffering and the first step is to subject the chief oppressors to sensitivity training to indoctrinate them in accepting various affirmative actions aimed at constraining the presumed oppressive forces in the nation. Among those affirmative actions are the entitlements – the oppressed are entitled to almost everything what the oppressors may have.
In the American Judeo-Christian morality, there is no oppressors and oppressed – the American Judeo-Christian morality enhances the equality of everybody in the “image and likeness of God”.
The American Judeo-Christian morality promotes the societal advancement while the politically correct morality harms the advancement
The mighty tool for any advancement is the competition among various groups and individuals in all spheres of human activities – in science, in technology, in economics, in ideology, in religion, in politics, etc.
In the American Judeo-Christian morality, everybody is equal in “the image and likeness of God” and therefore has a sort of divine ability to do something better than the others – that is to compete with the others and therefore to advance yourself and the society. In the American Judeo-Christian morality, there is a free market of competing ideas – you have advance your own ideas by peacefully competing with the others.
However, the politically correct morality harms the competitiveness by legislating or encouraging the anti-competitive concepts such as the following.
Victimization – you are a victim of the oppressive forces in the nation and therefore you cannot have a fair chance in the competition.
Multiculturalism and nonjudgmental-ism – you should not compete with other cultures and should judge the behavior of the others – for you, all cultures should be of equal spiritual value.
If you do not compete, if you do not strive to be better, there is no advancement.
The American Judeo-Christian morality strengthen the family while the politically correct morality destroys it
In the American Judeo-Christian morality, a man and a woman create a family to procreate, to bring up children along the lines of American Judeo-Christian morality tailored to individual family spiritual stream guidelines, having different but equally important family responsibilities.
The politically correct morality assaults all those values. It clearly seen in the slogans of this morality.
Feminism, male chauvinism, no-fault divorce, sexual harassment in the family, same-sex marriage, all these slogans are the tools for pushing a wife/mother out of her unique family role and reducing the utmost importance of the family in the fabric of our nation.
The politically correct morality builds the road to socialism
And finally, the invention of social justice — the politically correct synonym for socialism, where the big government is obligated to deliver the “happiness” to all its subjects by redistributing wealth from the more fortunate to the less fortunate. The history have presented convincing proof of the misery created by the socialism=social-justice in the Former Soviet Union, in contemporary Russia, in Cuba, in Brazil, in Venezuela, and in many other places. However, there is no history lessons for the politically correct instigators.
Indeed, now we see the perils of replacing Judeo-Christian morality by politically correct one. Let us hope it is not too late to get back.
