Morality a questionable virtue of today’s world
Except maybe in the secluded rural areas where there’s no luxuries that could influence the life of the local folks, morality in general have degenerated into something alarming. The continuing changes in the world partly influenced everything most especially the attitude and lifestyle of the human race. The “virtuous behavior” that the old generations hold has gradually deteriorated and barely hanging on in today’s world. The 20th and 21st century brought mankind farther down the dungeon of immorality. Aided by the various latest technology like the internet, globalization if you like and of course the media, the whole world seems going to the brink of “character deprivation.” Religious organizations, sects etc. have also been infected by immorality. Religious leaders preaches God’s teachings but inside their quarters they browse the internet for porn sites, seduce and rape children with force, cohabit with married individuals or practice same sex relationship. The same pattern happens to all the people in the world, from Asia, to Europe, to Africa, and to the South and North America. The immorality of man is preponderance in nature. It is like a multi colored picture with different variations with the same glow of charm and attraction but hidden inside is an insidious black color ready to cover the remaining moral virtue that leads to the destructive curse of immorality. So, the questions are; can we hold onto our moral values? Does the growing immorality in our surroundings affect us? Shall we follow the same lead and guide us to the world of immorality? If this is the way we should conduct ourselves, well morality is really a questionable virtue of today’s world. “Man’s imperfection causes him to commit a sin, but to commit it deliberately makes a man perfect for divine retribution.”
