Check out this quote from a site linked to Stanford Presidential Lecutures.
“Deconstruction: A school of philosophy that originated in France in the late 1960s, has had an enormous impact on Anglo-American criticism. Largely the creation of its chief proponent Jacques Derrida, deconstruction upends the Western metaphysical tradition.”The key concept here is the goal of upending Western tradition. It teaches that everything is relative. That includes the words you use. Do you wonder how the Supreme Court comes up with decisions that defy logic and common sense? It is because they embrace this idea that the Constitution means what they want it to mean, not what it says.
Middle class morality does not accept this. To the middle class, Objective Truth exists. Morality is defined by those objective truths and they are found in the Bible. Look at the Ten Commandments. They are not suggestions or guidelines. Middle class morality understands that there are many areas of grey and some areas are confusing but the basics provide a solid foundation for interpreting the rest.
Viva la middle class morality.

Yes, sad, but true. At least it helps me realize that I am not alone in my insanity.Delete
