This is what Jonathan Haidt has to say about morality.

To live virtuously as individuals and as societies, we must understand how our minds are built (see ch. 1 of The Happiness Hypothesis). We must find ways to overcome our natural self-righteousness (see ch. 4). We must respect and even learn from those whose morality differs from our own (see this talk or this essay on politics, or this essay on religion.).’

It doesn’t really matter if you think Jonathan is wonderful or not so… the morality thing is pretty big one these days…always has been really. So if Jonathan adds something to the discussion then good on ya Jonathan.
