    Moral High Ground: Liberals or Conservatives?

    Many years ago when I was in the business community, I observed criteria for employment in the corporate world. First, bonding companies investigate prospective employees by checking criminal records. Then, they do background checks related to friends and associates to determine character. As people advance up the corporate ladder, investigative reports from bonding companies are important. Contrary to liberal commentary about “fat cat” capitalist executives, executives hold the moral high ground. They do not advance if they have criminal records, poor references from associates, or have poor employment reports.

    Do law-abiding employees,who may be more conservative because of their commitment to the “rule of law," and have good references, hold the moral high ground?

    Evidently, lexx doesn't know the definition of moral. Here is a dictionary definition. "Of or concerned with the judgement of the goodness or badness of human action and character, ethical, moral scrutiny," according The American Heritage College Dictionary, Fourth Edition. Background checks are directly related to "badness of human action and character."

    According to evidence, when comparing liberals to conservatives, liberals tend to have higher incidence of criminal behavior, behavioral disorders, personality dysfunctions, abnormal (deviant) behavior, and poor work habits. So much for claiming "liberals to be standard barriers of goodwill for humankind."

    It is not a good idea to post pictures of your relatives. It gives the family a bad name.

    Re: Moral High Ground: Liberals or Conservatives?

    Does religion have anything to do with the debate about liberalism and conservatism?

    Well, maybe it does. From the Judeo Christian perspective, morality is rooted in the Ten Commandments. Then, we have societal rules and regulations based on cultural values and norms. We know, of course, the influence of the Bible on Western morality, and the influence of other religious affiliated groups on their cultural values and norms. So, it appears there is a strong religious component to morality. However, for the concepts of liberalism and conservatism, the primary criterion appears to be political affiliation. However this might be true, there remains the day to day function of everyday behavior whereas people relate to and are judged by their adherence or their disregard of moral standards. Therefore, God is related to the discussion inasmuch as He is the focal point of sacred beliefs or incidental values related to human behavior.

    I suppose you can exclude God from any discussion of universal standards, but it is difficult to imagine a civilized world without universal standards. The Ten Commandments set forth objective moral standards that have generally been adopted. Assuming the Lord of the Old Testament was God, we have an early example of God establishing moral standards. If you don't believe in God, then where do you find absolute standards for moral conduct? Through human consensus there can be, and there are, moral standards. Here, however, we may have a problem. With so many different cultures throughout the world, and nations imposing their influences, where do we find universal moral standards?

    It may be the case that today's morality is more a matter of relativity than it is absolutism. If there are to be standards for morality, and therefore frameworks for liberalism and conservatism, it may be more political than religious.

    According to evidence, when comparing liberals to conservatives, liberals tend to have higher incidence of criminal behavior, behavioral disorders, personality dysfunctions, abnormal (deviant) behavior, and poor work habits. So much for claiming "liberals to be standard barriers of goodwill for humankind."

    It depends on how your regard criminal records. If liberals have poor employment reports and bad criminal reports, why bother hiring them? Is it really true? Are liberals more deviant than conservatives? What is the evidence? I'll bet you can prove it. Check criminal records and personnel records. What would you find?

    So, what is the argument for the superiority of liberals?
