Are there two types of morality, one that is feeling and one that is doctrine?
On the one hand, I am talking about morality based on empathy, understanding and experiencing someone on the other side of the situation. Empathy is the ability to understand where someone else is coming from. This understanding can be learned through experiencing what it is like to be the person on the other end of the coin.
Understanding that we are all the same but are brought about by different experiences. Sometimes, living the same experiences as someone else helps build empathy for their situation. Now to the point: good and bad can be learned by experiencing other people's lives - this allows you to know when you make a choice whether it will harm or help another, because you can empathize with the person on the other end and see your actions from their perspective.
This is global awareness and awareness in general - living in a world where everyone has the right to be independent and where the goal is for everyone to reach their full potential.
In this kind of morality, something is wrong when it harms another. Awareness of what harms another is felt through empathizing with the other person, often because of having shared similar experiences. It almost hurts to do an action that would harm someone else if you are aware of their perspective."
That part must be a reference to the FACT that Profit Motive is destroying the middle class.

From my point of view:
With objective reasoning it does not matter who judges you since it will be the same judgment no matter who judges. Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil is from my point of view the subjective blindness thinking it knows objective morality without seeking it believing it knows perfection. Taking out the peg of blindness?
~~~Ok, that sounds like Pride, to me.. Perhaps in different languages we are describing the same thing?.~~~
I might not love the insanity some souls create but at least I can love their potential to someday be divine.
"If anyone comes to Me, and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.
"Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.
"For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it?
Calculate the objective moral behavior/action?
