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
