I'm not sure what the "old money" has to do with it.
You have a very serious problem with self accusation. Essentially you seem to be fingering your own culture, your own ancestors, those who you are directly a function of, as despicable. They are better seen as immature folks maturing through time. Like I said, would you finger all scientists, call them all despicable for using science to kill so massively throughout history? Sure, folks using science have done some wonderful things that we all celebrate, curing diseases and the like, but by your standard of judgement, we should not be paying attention to anything that scientists have done or do that we consider good, because there are people out there right now plotting to use science to kill others.
The mechanism of what happens is not something that's immediately apparent to us. Ultimately, it's our awareness where we perceive change. We become aware of the becoming of differing states or patterns.
Yes I agree, but our opinions of those actions are subjective. My contention is that morality deals with the reality of the actions and how they affect our well being. That is the objective part.
