Have They No Shame?

Why are we required to function under the ethics, values, and morals standards, rules, and laws created by people who lived on the desert 5000 years ago? The change required for we humans to function a high level since 1980 is almost overwhelming. Today, not just one or two persons must function at a high level, but every one of the 7 billion inhabitants. However, how can our individuals accept the challenge of functioning at high level when the path is blocked by 5000 year old desert ethics, values, and morals.

Dear pinenee: How long has "2+2=4"? The age of a principle has nothing to do with whether we should honor it and live by it. The principles given us thousands of years ago need to be applied in ways specific to our century but the principles do not change. You sound like there is some kind of change that you want and that old principles are in the way.

What ethics and moral standards really means is that it is wrong to lie, cheat, steal, defame, perjure, murder, assault, and etc. Since the Democrat party has done it's best to eliminate these standards in the last half century, How could you possibly feel that you are functioning at a higher level? Seems to me you are wanting to behave more as an animal than anything else. Take responsibility for yourself, become an adult, join the human race, and treat others the same as you want to be treated.

Jesus said it was appropriate to treat others as you would like to be treated. While He is everything in my life, other Faiths have the same edict, expressed in other words. Of course there are places where that ethic is detested. I suppose most prisons are like that.
The official position of our leaders, speaking the ethics of Jesus or the Dali Lama, and E Pluribus Unum gives us a future. Obama's behavior is quite the opposite.
He has a winning smile. Does anyone recall his remark, not far distant in time from his please for civility,'If they bring a knife, we'll bring a gun', Obama. An evil man.

Below is living and evolving proof...

PARIS -- Is there anything people can possibly do these days to disgust or unnerve themselves? Or is the only barrier to bad behavior massive societal shunning, the likes of which isn't noticed by those who are too engrossed with themselves to pay attention?

I'm asking this because it seemed that everywhere I looked recently, I was bombarded by stunning acts of shamelessness -- to the point where shamelessness arguably WAS the major trend in the news. Let's look at a few examples.
