Thaddeus McCotter's Moral Certitude...


The last in this list of issues of concern to Thaddeus McCotter is by far and away the most interesting.

The challenge of globalization, the war for freedom against terrorists, the rise of Communist China and whether moral relativism erodes a nation built on self-evident truth.
This suggests a belief in moral certitude. Many cringe at the thought, but in an interview in which he was requested to define what conservatism is he refused, arguing that doing so could lead to the exclusion of those who define conservative as differently. Instead, he chose to define only what conservatism is to him. This is moral certitude practiced on the individual level. There is another term for this - individualism.

We've seen the alternative nationally.

Boomers firmly ensconced in moral relativism selfishly support choice over life, they choose debt over thrift, they choose "The Man" over liberty, and they push poverty on all but themselves. These choices all find acceptance when viewed with the proper moral perspective. Never mind the overall contradictions.

The majority of the boomer generation never stopped thinking of themselves. First rejecting the thrift, success and sacrifice of the greatest generation then engorging themselves on a combination of free love, consumerism, and me-ism. Nothing satiated the boomer generation; not their incessant self aggrandizing through the media, not new age nonsense. They were lost in an endless maze of perpetual desire and unable to find contentment. Now with the bill for all their excess firmly on the table, they pass it on to subsequent generations. Once a hippie, now the man -- perpetually living off the plate of another.

Never before has our country seen such a worthless, selfish, shiftless, horrible, or gluttonous group of malcontents so intent on shifting their individual responsibility to society as the generation that followed the Greatest Generation.

They truly are --- The Worst Generation --- A generation rationalizing gluttony through moral relativism.
