Morality & ecology

Divgray

Morality is ecological. The Wall Street bankers who played irresponsibly with the mortgage loans possibly represent the first generation of people who have been brought in the cancerous thought-branch of postmodernism saying that morality has been but a political construct and hence has no application in public activities.

A sense of civic responsibility is surely an aspect of morality. Maybe we need to revisit classical virtues?
