Why Our Children Don’t Think There Are Moral Facts

From an opinion piece by a philosophy professor in the New York Times. It really is an interesting read, and it boils down very well the problem with modern education:

In summary, our public schools teach students that all claims are either facts or opinions and that all value and moral claims fall into the latter camp. The punchline: there are no moral facts. And if there are no moral facts, then there are no moral truths.

“No moral truths.” That is the end goal of all modern education. We can’t “progress” as a species if we accept that there are absolutes when it comes to morals and truths. This precept is how the progressives have chipped away at the moral underpinnings of society, and it is how they convince the world to accept more and more aberrant behavior.

“Truth is relative. What is right for you may not be for others. But we have to accept everyone’s conception of truth.”

Except there is absolute moral truth. There is right and wrong. Our denial of it has led to much suffering and unrest, and it is extremely sad to see children conditioned to accept such lies in the guise of “education”.
