Moralities Summary

Moralities: How to End the Abuse of Money and Power in the 21st Century by Joan Smith

Why do sex scandals no longer sweep presidents from power? What political impetus has produced the first war crimes trial since Nuremburg? What social currents cause thousands to demonstrate against globalization? As Lewis Carroll once said "everything has a moral if only you can find it". If the 20th century was characterized by the struggle between freedom and tyanny, the battle of the 21st will be between global capitalism and human rights. In this polemic the author argues that our moral barometer is shifting, ejecting church and state from our private lives to a secular code based on justice, equality and human rights.
