Your Morality – My Morality

The Truth, the Story.
– Qabalist teacher Ann Davies told a story about a U.S. Army general negotiating with a cannibal chief in New Guinea during World War II. The general wanted the chief to rally his tribe to help American troops fight the Japanese. The chief refused, calling the Americans immoral. The general was shocked. “We are not immoral!” he protested. “The Japanese are immoral!” The cannibal chief replied, “The Japanese and Americans are equally immoral. You both kill far more people than you can eat.”
Using this tale as our impetus, describe how parts of our moral code may not be rooted in an absolute standard of what’s good and evil, but rather bound by the idiosyncrasies of our culture and historical era.
