We See Plenty of Moral Progress

We abhor racism and slavery. Women, gay men, lesbians, and African Americans have gained many needed rights in the West, along with freethinkers who can speak out without being killed for it, at least when it comes to Christianity. We are more health conscious with the foods we eat, and there is a movement against smoking. We no longer have lynchings in the West. When we do execute a murderer, we’ve come up with more humane ways to do it, and many people are against the death penalty altogether.

What else do you see? What do you think is the greatest inhibitor to moral progress? What can stop it dead in ins tracks?
