Modern Morality?

August 19, 2015

ashleymadisonHackers, who claim to have released names, addresses and credit card numbers of the users of the infidelity site, have appointed themselves as “the moral judge, juror, and executioner, seeing fit to impose a personal notion of virtue on all of society.”  How funny that their self-righteous code believes adultery is a sin but invasion of privacy, illegally hacking into computers and grand larceny are no big deal.  This only proves that it is easy to live a moral life if you can make up the rules as you go along.

She is a former journalist who made an unscheduled stop into humor more than 20 years ago. Her syndicated columns helped her gain a national audience when her work landed in the pages of First Magazine and USA Today. She teaches the how-to lessons of humor and publishing at conferences and workshops throughout the country including The Philadelphia Writers' Conference and Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop. The author of four humor books, Cavanagh hopes her latest book, How to Write and Share Humor: Techniques to Tickle Funny Bones and Win Fans, will encourage writers not only to embrace their humor talents but show them off as well.

    I just don’t get it Don Don’s. If I’m going to have an affair and I’m not, I’m sure as hell not going to have it with someone who can’t find like-minded individuals without having to pay to use an online database. There has to be principals involed and secretairies, etc!

    Well, they can’t get me – all my infidelity, and hacking, and bad behavior goes on deep inside my very active brain noodle.

    The moral high ground has now been moved underground.

    The concept of minding one’s own business seems to escape some people’s understanding.

    Everyone can use marital help. Site users can probably use extra marital help.

    This is so wrong! If these hackers want to get names of people wanting to have affairs, they should pay the money and join the site just like anyone else. How do they expect the owners of the site to make a living? Would Thomas Alva Edison invented the light bulb if he couldn’t have gotten a patent? I think not. I weep for the future of America’s entrepeneurial–according to spell check, there is no correct spelling of that word–spirit. It’s time to bring back entrepeneurial morality. It’s just time to take back America. 🙂
