Does Having the Right Opinion Make One Good?
Recently Theodore Dalrymple said something interesting during an interview on MalaCast. He was speaking about how people today condemn others retrospectively, without any examination of their own, current conduct.
This is sign and syndrome of the times, he said, where our moral enthusiasms lead us to believe that "to be good is to have the right opinions; it isn't necessarily to behave well."
But does having the "right" opinion make a man superior or of greater value than another?
If you really keep the royal law, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” then you are doing right.
