The word “morality” gets tossed around like a hot potato these days because if we hold onto it, we might have to define it.
Some people think the most immoral act a person can commit is getting in the express lane with two extra grocery items.
In formerly communist countries, where discussions of morality were suppressed, they aren’t bashful about the word. That may explain why a Czech writer and politician has authored such a powerful definition.
Vaclav Havel told the U.S. Congress that morality means responsibility, to the order of being, where all our actions are recorded, and wher and only where they will be properly judged.
Morality is like love: hard to define but easy to recognize.
