Moralism is not the way to go about changing attitudes

When my friend Will Campbell said capital punishment is tacky
he was saying that moralism is not the way to go about changing attitudes
Censure and judging others and railing at them does no earthly good
What does good is to flag the utter ugliness of things
that result in harm and lead to violence
and the need for a break in the chain of evil for evil
That break would be forgiveness
which is integral to any viable spiritual regimen
It is a daily task

The two errors of most philosophy is that
they make no place for forgiveness as a part of ethics
(not to mention limiting ethics to ancillary status)
and they fail to state that the realm of action and therefore of change
is the aesthetic sphere
Triadic Philosophy
which is now available at the Kindle Store
corrects these twin neglects
