The old morality of the past authoritarian era was based on the absolute distinction between right and wrong. What was right and wrong applied equally for everyone. Today, this morality is dead.
In our anti-authoritarian society, what is right and wrong for one person is not necessarily true for another. This is the new, relative morality and is particularly true in the political arena. Because of the resultant ever encroaching shift of the political mainstream to the left of center, the public is led by the media to believe that what is right and wrong for someone on the political left is not true for someone on the political right. Accordingly, political figures on the left such as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are presented as the “good, anti-authoritarian guys.” They can do nothing wrong. Conversely, those on the right are pictured as the “bad, authoritarian guys.” They can do nothing right.
A case in point is the public’s favorable reaction to Clinton’s evasiveness and lying when questioned by congress about her Emails as Secretary of State following the Benghazi attack on the American Consulate. Four Americans including the Ambassador to Libya are murdered by Arab terrorists and her ratings go up.
