What is the use of teaching moral values in elementary and high school when people cannot even agree on what is morality?

So the conservatives, who believe in Constitutional freedoms and limited govt, are authorarian.
And the liberals, who want big govt socialism controlling everything, are for individual autonomy.

Oh the irony.....ROFL
Socialism built the US. Show some respect please!

If someone has to go broke paying a mass murdering health insurance company to not kill them....so much autonomy. Freedom is supposed to mean actual freedom. You're the ones that want everyone to work and endure as much suffering as humanely possible.

Once upon the governments trying to kill people were considered authoritarian not the other way around.

In Saudi Arabia, the Wahabists are called the conservatives.
Conservatives talking points are not conservative ACTIONS.

The Only respect in which conservatives want Limited government is the government's power to limit the actions of the ownership class thru regulation of their avarice.
Conservatives favor government telling women what they can and can not do with their own bodies. You can't get any more BIG GOVERNMENT than having Uncle Sam siezing control of your actual body.

Conservatives talk about lowering taxes- but in practice they RAISE taxes on the working and middle class and only lower taxes on the top 5%.
Conservaitve Talk about 'fiscal responsibility'- but in fact rack up larger deficits whenever they are in power, and enact legislation that makes the economy more prone to volatility-
which benefits the ownership class by taking the pensions and homes of the working class and allowing the rich to buy them at auction- thereby increasing their share of ownership... and then the Conservatives stick the working class with the bill for bailing out the losses of the rich.

Liberals want equality- equal treatment- they want regulation of business- which the Constitution specifies is the federal government's JOB.
They want tax monies to benefit the taxpayer- not the people whose income is not taxed at all.

I suspect that what was meant was the irony of the switching of priorities. I don't think that it was an attack on Socialism. We've seen this thread before: in its origins, the Republican Party was the radical force for progress while the Democrats favored the status quo--rather the opposite today. It is ironic.

For me, the best explanation of morality is the first chapter in C.S. Lewis' "Mere Christianity". He discusses this before he ever gets near discussing Christianity per se.
He says, “human beings, all over the earth, have this curious idea that they ought to behave in a certain way, and cannot really get rid of it.” Lewis calls this law of right behavior the Moral Law.
Give it a try.
