Would violence between individuals and groups cease? Not likely. Violence is a product of an individual's level of morality. Most adults are at a conventional level of morality which is dictated by the social process of law and order. This is a civic duty approach to life which is dictated to each individual and applies to all: ‘no one is above the law’. A Post Conventional sense of morality is fundamental to the character of the person and guided by an internal set of universal ethics which are not bounded by law. Action may occur in defiance of any law if ‘lack of action’ is considered wrong.
In other words…conventional morality easily condones violence whereas post-conventional morality rejects it without equivocation. With conventional morality, even religions can condone violence. With post-conventional morality, violence is simply not an option.
Most societies train their children in conventional morality.
