Inner Goodness

The problem with western constructions of morality is the emphasis on scriptural content. That kind of legalism was best expressed in "Fiddler on the Roof" when the Rabbi, reading his Torah with other men, determines that it IS okay for a man to divorce his wife if he does not like her cooking.

If we redefine morality as "the mitigation of suffering," then it has much more in common with the word "humane."
