I would say that the obvious answer is yes
Well, I'm thinking of another test, then. Your subtle attack on anyone that differs with you in the thread title is completely negated by the only content of the post.
You could have just said, "Anyone who thinks morality has not improved over time is wrong, IMHO."
That might have sparked discussion. Now, I'm just trying to find ways to fight back because you have taken the position that it is obvious that I am insane.
Standards of morality have evolved over time. Certainly from a standpoint of sexual promiscuity and personal responsibility (if those are, in fact, issues of "morals") morals have taken huge steps back in the 65+ years since WWII.
The responsibility can be debated of course - did the Greatest Generation and Silent Generation spoil the boomers so much that this decline, sexual irresponsibility, rampant use of drugs and alcohol, desire for someone else to fund everything (everyone else, actually), or was this progress of immorality following a more natural, organic route. Did the baby boomers "choose" immorality, in other words?
On the other hand, certainly in the West, engaging in warfare on a grand scale is way down. Is that improvement in morality? Have we just exported this to the third world?
F*ck you and your attack on me (and summary dismissal, because I'm obviously insane) without knowing me or even putting forward any analysis - just based on your personal bias about someone who might dare
to hold a different opinion on this very debatable topic.
