In Milwaukee, several wards recorded more votes than registered voters. That it happened at all shows that the vote counting system lacks basic safeguards. It's inconceivable that someone designing a voting system wouldn't check voter registration vs. vote.
Of course, that assumes that the people designing the system have an objective moral compass. Cheating is wrong. Lying is wrong. Stealing is wrong. That sort of thing.
This summer, we discovered that stealing isn't wrong, so long as it's done by the right people and the Elites can shape it into their religious narrative of racial social justice. Now we've seen that inventing votes out of thin air isn't wrong because Orange Man Bad. Earlier, Cardi B showed us that there's no difference between being a strong, black woman and behaving like a dog in heat.
I've got a friend who likes to complain about capitalism. They see greed everywhere and it bothers them deeply. They've worked a lot of business deals and claim that such deals are less honest than they used to be. Well, what of it? If it's OK to cheat in elections and it's OK to loot businesses, why isn't it OK to get more money for yourself by any means necessary?
Herein lies the problem with subjective morality. Once the lines aren't just blurred, but erased, there's nothing to slow down anyone's behavior. Cuties is child porn? What of it? Some people like doing it with kids and if the kids say it's OK, then it's no big deal. We're loading up our children with debt? What of it? We're just being compassionate. If it bothers you, you're the one with the problem, the problem of being judgmental.
If you throw out one dimension of objective morality for the sake of, say, racial social justice, who are you to say that someone else throwing out a different dimension so they can send their kids to an expensive, private college is behaving badly?
We all take moral shortcuts. However, in order to see them as shortcuts, we need to have a moral roadmap in the first place. Once the roadmap is erased, then they aren't shortcuts any more, but simple cost-benefit decisions where both the cost and the benefit are strictly personal.
Stealing the election isn't an outlier, it's just another stop on the road to roadlessness.
