“Morality binds and blinds. It binds us into ideological teams that fight each other as though the fate of the world depended on our side winning each battle. It blinds us to the fact that each team is composed of good people who have something important to say.”
Jonathan Haidt, The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion

Thomas Cathcart
“Sorting out what's good and bad is the province of ethics. It is also what keeps priests, pundits, and parents busy. Unfortunately, what keeps children and philosophers busy is asking the priests, pundits and parents, "Why?”
Thomas Cathcart, Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar: Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes
