greatest challenges of our generation

Sadly, the spirit of the age says that ethics are either subjective or or self-evident. Ultimately, such a notion means that no particular deed can be conclusively deemed unethical. It will always just be your own opinion. This means that the best rhetoricians, manipulators, and power-wielders will impose their own system of ethics on the general public who accept it without contemplating it.
