  1. Morality is much more important than civility. The is not civility without morality.
    Your real question should be how does the lack of civility (person attacks, false statements, innuendo, political correctness, and name calling) destroy morality? Without morality there can be no civilization.

  2. Morality is based on how is in power at that moments. What I feel might be moral might be very different than whomever is conducting the survey. When used in what I perceive a correct manner it offers people and opportunity for checks and balances.
