The 21st century intertwined use of the noun word "perspective" and the word "morality"

     In the course of completing my research for this November wordsplusmeanings blogspot post, I was surprised to find that a high school had published the most informative article regarding the noun word "perspective" when discussing history.
     So what can determine your "perspective" regarding history and everything that affects you?
     Now here is what Google says:  "...a system of values, normative rules, or principles according to which intentions or behaviors are judged to be good or bad, right or wrong. Such judgment can arise from cultural, religious, or philosophical beliefs."
     In this 21st century, the noun word "perspective"  is important in every phase of our lives, from health to politics to our environment - the main thing to remember regarding the noun word "perspective" is that it is essentially someone's opinion.  And what counts is who is marshaling the "perspective," and who is proclaiming that a particular "perspective" is correct.
     Nonetheless, in this 21st century sadly facts can be cherry picked for a certain "perspective," too, but my research has determined the noun word "morality" is intertwined with the noun word "perspective" – it's a compass of sorts, a determination of what is "right" and what is "wrong."
     Thus, my research has determined "perspective" intertwined with "morality" will affect the way you live your life.
     Some will say that there are measures of "morality," but laws in the civilized world do not allow citizens to kill each other, and civilized nations do not allow grievance to justify inhuman acts, like raping, torture – that's the "moral compass" that guides "perspective."
     In conclusion, a "moral compass" is what guides civilization, and keeps us from returning to the dark ages.
