Moral Vocabulary is Not Morally Neutral

The moral vocabulary that most modern philosophers, since the eighteenth century, have been promoting is not morally neutral—they use the words like “reason,” “individualism,” “progress,” “atheism,” “liberty,” “liberalism,” “objective,” “subjective,” and even “good,” “evil,” “truth,” and “certainty” to project a certain kind of worldview. But when the normative premises are being assumed in the concepts, the moral philosophy must become the driver of nihilism and political corruption in society.
