Thats an interesting side argument as well. The commandments say thou shall not covet thy neighbors goods which means not to steal. However, I believe it is okay to steal for the greater good. If you live in a village and your neighbor had plenty of cattle, and so do you, you shouldnt steal any. But if you and the whole village is dying of starvation, it would be best to steal some cattle (assuming the owner refuses to let anyone have any).

Back to the original question, I believe humans are born with morals. Society may influence those morals, but even societies that have made people have certain morals have still been objected to, because people have their own general sense of right and wrong even if (as I said) that sense can be altered by society.

It was about p. Just a few hundred feet from his apartment building, he passed a group of young men in jeans and hoodies. Tasimi barely noticed them, until one landed a punch to the back of his head. There was no time to run. The teenagers, ignoring his friend, wordlessly surrounded Tasimi, who had crumpled to the brick sidewalk.

From Genius to Madness

Welcome sign in sign up. According to a prominent tradition of Western thinking, morality is a thin overlay covering human savagery. Human beings are bestial by nature and ethical codes are curbs on their brutish instincts that enable them to live together in relative peace. Morality is a restraint on natural human behavior. At the same time it is believed to be uniquely human. Only humans possess the intellectual powers that are needed to repress natural impulses, and so only they can be moral.
