john haidt analyzed the basis of morality. he concluded that there are 5 basic principles: 1-harm/care 2-reciprocity/fairness 3-in family loyalty 4-authority/respect 5-sanctity. he did an international survey and found that while the right and left agree on the first two principles, only the right suscribes to latter three. the left dismisses the need to accede to authority,in family loyalty and sanctity.now one can understand gideon levy. he consistently dismisses principles that the right sees as a need for social order. the left rather see diversity (and not 'in-family loyalty'), no respect for authority and a 'hands-off my body' (and not purity and sanctity)as their basis for morality. haidt further suggests that we all leave our moral matrix for even just a short moment to try to discern truth and not our prejudiced narrow viewpoints. question is whether gideon levy is able to make that type honest assessment and to see that he alone is not in possession of the truth.
