The crises of values and the sake of man: positivism

Value > The crises of values and the sake of man
Positivism places morality among values and replaces ethics with psychology or sociology to declare the individual always free, even from guilt.
Psychology places all responsibility on society, nominalism proclaims solemn rights and puts individualistic excesses aside from abstentions and assumptions of responsibility which are aimed at offering goods at the service of the weakest.
Consciences should act in freedom and co-responsibility in the truth of contributions that build a worthy life, with personal responsibility for behaviors, because of what man is, can do and must be.
Refusals to act are justified, indeed obligatory, only in the face of morally bad commands, as the last means to defend truth and concern for good.
