Morality come from Society

Morality arises from society wherever individual and general interests collide. Guided by the desire to maintain and foster society, morals are value judgments comparing either interest's implications; interests more beneficial to society are considered morally valid (i.e. Theft, allowing easy access to more resources, may benefit individuals, but widespread theft may prove detrimental to general growth and societal stability).

Rights, then, are inherent extrapolations of general moral judgments: because communal deliberation considers theft deleterious, individuals gain a 'right to property' after appropriate legislation. Whereas morality is universal, individuals' morals (the fluid hypotheses) require debate to determine general morals for legislative action (the experiment). Evaluation, and subsequent altering of, moral judgments (the observations and conclusion) is only possible ex post facto.
