I dunno, Thumper.

Could it be so simple?

If the majority of a society has not been brainwashed and conditioned to accept immoral behavior as appropriate, then right from wrong would be easily recognizable.

The people would, therefore, not be as complacent to the "corrupt" and immoral acts of their politicians.

The ability of society to use their own mind to decide for themselves what is honorable and right would be of their own free will.

And, with free will, anything is possible.

Under mind control, it is not!

It's quite true. 'It' being, of course, the personal pronoun, neuter gender.

'That': The far demonstrative pronoun, singular

In fact, by definition and based upon Divine Law, a 'moral' society cannot be dominated at all.

It is an impossibility.

I guess that I really should make a quick correction. Technically speaking, 'it' is the 3rd personal pronoun, singular, neuter gender. Ok. That's better.

But furthmore, on the theme of 'that': We might begin asking ourselves a few questions. Why is it considered as a 'far' demonstrative? What is the distinction between 'which' and 'that'? Why do so many make the error of placing 'that' for 'who'?

Begin thinking about these linguistic designations and the bird of paradise will fly in your ear.

Have my doubts if a - Moral Society - is the elixer - for coexistence.

Sold on a - sense of be - in ones' self.
Guided by your own - inner rightness - with yourself.
In the light of - cold blooded reality.

As for morality, I presume we are averaging the limitations of religion, humanitarian behaviors, limited war, socialized medicine, etc. A culture which strives to have a balanced agreement on the status of morality through each generation is one which has estabilished goals and the keen eye to achieve and maintain said goals. The character of each individual is weighed to continue an accord in this nature. Thus the individual achieves, maintains and delivers an exempliary degree of discipline. Thus a disciplined culture is very defensive to maintain their pre-determined morality. The characteristics of the individual spread across an entire culture keep for a strong bond, indeed.

However, even a culture of immorality can maintain the same degree of self-discipline. It doesn't mean they are acceptable and lasting, such as with Nazi Regime behaviors. Nor would they be able to maintain their behaviors without criticism, however..morality is less of a target in that it doesn't pose an open threat. Needless to say, many individuals who have "immorality" in one area of their decisions wouldn't necessarily pose a threat if it was of the self-inflicting nature, leaving outside cultures out of harm.


oneview, can you define your phrase "cold blooded reality". Are you referencing it to an opposite status or a similiar status?

Has to do with - the outside world around.
Being, what one is confronted with, by other interests around,
as one goes along - its' own "merry way".

The - extreme interests - of any established world about:
that one - incorporates - in itself - to see the - light of day - instead.

Has nothing to do with - one - will - make the world, more suitable.
It appears to be - the outlook - from early on in life.

Even though one can - seemingly - live out ones' life - with no real "ado" -
confrontation abounds - and would have to be - dealt with - by anyone.
As one strives to accomplish the "seemingly impossible".

With good morals, one must also have accountability, responsibility and discipline.

As you state the example of a corrupt politician, if the constituency does not hold the person accountable to those immoral acts, he can stay in that position unless some body remove the person by force.

The again, if the person has allies with very strong weapons/technologies to over-power the community, then they will get dominated. Our biggest problem in human-kind has been that the majority of people does not "get" the right morality/responsibility/accountability/disciple when we reach a certain age. Our society would not be this way, if hypothetically every human "gets it" when they are 18 years old.
We all grow and learn fairly differently such that in our early years, we are very gullible to all sorts of wrong influences. Thanks goodness the majority of people are not violent!.
