Moving Forward Through the Modern World

Abstract

So far, then, the morally impressive campaigns against “moral judgement” have always proved to be one-sided, aimed not against judgement itself, but against particular ill-judgers. Do we now want to enlarge our scope and launch a different kind of campaign? Do we now have reason to say that, under present conditions, not only is it wrong to accept the judgements made by a corrupt and cowardly society, but it is equally wrong to accept any judgements made by anybody, and further—a different point—that it is wrong to make such judgements ourselves?
