Fishing in Qufim last night, I lost my lure watching this.
It's a documentary about the murder of Shanann Watts and her children, by husband, Chris Watts. It is put together so well, I almost had to fast forward some parts during his confession.
Maybe because I'm a parent or I'm getting too soft in my old age, but it hit me real heavy. Go watch it and discuss some philosophical points with me.
Morality is subjective.
Man is not born inherently good or evil.
Moral/value systems are invented so we can all get along.
A man who justifies breaking the rules of his moral systems is on a slippery slope to continue doing so.
What interests me the most in this case is that this man, went from some god fearing married man to an adulterous, murderous monster in a few months.
My question is:
Was it because this man was morally bound so well into his marriage and religion. (they make references to praying in the film) that once he broke 1 moral rule, (cheated on his wife) all his inhibitions came crashing down?
Doesn't it seem more the "norm" to cheat on your wife, have an argument and then get divorced?
Was the mistress that good? lol.
Go watch it, it'll ruin your day.
