Moral Update is a blog devoted to the advancement of the good. Tackling a variety of social and political issues, the commentary on Moral Update is grounded in the perspective that morality is objective, universal, and can be discovered through rational discussion.
Throughout history, authorities like priests and politicians have invoked morality to control and manipulate ordinary people. Their teachings could not be challenged except under threat of punishment. I hope this blog will help divorce morality from authority, and that through unlimited challenge and exploration, we can forge our way to mutual moral clarity.

I am a twenty-something ignorant enough to feel guilty debating philosophy, but arrogant enough to do it anyway. Although I have an education and some professional experience writing about politics and economics, I would hope that my arguments speak louder than my credentials.
