Although I am a frequent reader and generally a fan of Robert and SLL, he errs in a terrible and consequential manner in this piece. In essence he is sanctioning moral relativism for individuals and small groups while at the same time decrying the consequences of it (moral relativism) for governments. Sorry to break this news, but as long as man seeks to put himself in the place of God, chaos and evil result. This is the story of humanity since the Fall.
This is a repellent idea for those who wish to chart their own course, to create their own moral compass (this is where Klein will appear, no doubt). Our moral conscience comes from God, although it does malfunction due to our rebellion from Him. Nonetheless we cannot be the authors of ‘moral truth’ or we will devolve into The Lord of the Flies. I simply seek faithful followers of Jesus who have a clue as to what is coming our way, and what must be done to prepare, survive, and rebuild/restore. It still surprises me how hard it is to find such people out in the world, even down here in the Bible belt.

Thank you, Sir. Very well and truly written. The essence of the problem simply stated.

That said, however, Mr. Gore is correct… no one is coming to save us.
He already did that 2000 years ago.
But no Man on a White Unicorn is going to prevent what is coming, that is certain. I think that’s what Gore meant. Your criticism of moral relativism is absolutely correct and necessary, as is Gore’s description of the moral rot and social degeneracy and the consequences thereof.
