    This is chilling Dick. I think its a tragic irony that many of society’s most disturbed individuals hide behind doctrines that are supposed to inspire morality. Excellent work my friend.

    Thanks man – yeah, I agree. But I think it is their absolute connection to morality which makes them collapse into prejudice. Morality always involves a “non” or “not” (ie. immorality) and fails to acknowledge that the law is relative – rather than absolute. As you know, I believe in ethics as the solution to morality.
