What is everyone's fascination with morality??

To be honest I don't get it.  Morality inhibits people's free will.  Our free will is one of the only things that is truly ours.  We live in a world where people believe that if there wasn't a book telling them what to think or do in certain situations or pointless laws telling us how to go about our lives then we would go to hell in a handbasket.

Morality has caused the most horrible things in history, the crusades, every war, slavery, and many more atrocities.  My advice to you people: learn more about the age we live in now by watching Ian Xel Lungold videos, learn about what is happening spiritually right now from David Wilcock.  I know several people aren't ready for what is to come in 5 years but for the people who are on the verge of finding it out just push your minds a little further outwards and you will realize that you have the power to decide for yourself, not have the quran or the bible tell you what to do.
