*All season 1 episodes are now back catalogged on our Patreon and accessible through a $5/month subscription*
What is majority morality? Simply, it is when the majority of people in a society view an issue to be moral or immoral. This concept has shaped many of our behaviors and helped form our societies and laws into what they are today. It seems simple, but there are many contradictions and intricacies that can be problematic, which is exactly what we attempt to discuss in the podcast.
For some examples of where the majority of people stand on the morality of some issues, check out this Gallup poll on moral acceptability and how it has changed over the years.
