Moral and theological fads come and go throughout history just as civilisations rise and fall. The sort of trendy morality of today’s upper-middle class White liberals is on display in a poll done by TV channel CBS Reality and reported by Yahoo News:
Binge-drinking, domestic violence, tax evasion, racism, terrorism, bullying and bigotry constitute seven deadly sins in today’s society, according to a new study.
And racism has been named as the biggest sin of today, the Daily Star reported.
The poll, carried out by TV channel CBS Reality, has branded the original sins of wrath, envy, greed, gluttony, sloth, lust and pride as outdated.
The anti-bullying movement is extremely popular in the education field and has become a major industry. Like the rest of these modern ‘sins,’ there is a lot of money pushing the concept. The idea that tax evasion could be on this list definitely reveals the Leftist and anti-libertarian political bias of those polled. Anarchists and many libertarians would actually name the reverse – tax enforcement – as immoral. ‘Racism‘ is a new term that is less than a century old. It appears in quotations here because anything and everything these days is ‘racist.’ Only a few generations ago many of the things that today are considered ‘racist’ (such as buying a White doll for your daughter instead of a Black doll or preferring to date members of your own race) were the norm and certainly not considered immoral or sinful. Most of the other named ‘sins’ on this list are also trendy concerns of upper-middle class White liberals. They are the sort of things that your average busy-body or do-gooder is deeply concerned about.
