Wow, now this is an article to get you thinking.
Well, me, anyway.

Trying to digest this: "maintaining this state of psychic segregation requires an ongoing rejection of deeper moral reflection for fear that we will lose ourselves and our moral centering in a relativist quagmire."

Translation: Once someone decides that certain things are right and certain things are wrong, they're scared to examine those decisions for fear that they'll then be unable to decide that anything is right or anything is wrong and therefore become amoral, which is one of the things they've decided is wrong.

An amoral person can kill because there's no value or reason not to.
A fixed moral person can kill if their moral structre allows it.

Is that about right?
