Forum: Question of tolerance in society

Strands of discussion:
  • Should morality be separate from politics?
  • Evolution of tolerance: homosexuality was not acceptable in the past but is widely recognised as equal to heterosexuality now. Would Paedophilia be accepted in the future?
  • Morally unacceptable ideas or conduct can be drummed into people’s mind as acceptable – politicians often use marketing techniques to dress up a “bad” policy as a “good” policy.
  • Part of political oppression is to persuade or coerce people to accept or reject certain concepts which are morally "wrong".
