Because people rarely self reflect, they would not change or improve a bad morality. Heinrich Himmler was sympathetic to his victims, yet he was a moral man and followed what he was told would do good for the world. Jonathan Edwards failed to realize his morals were bad and continued to believe them until his death. While Wilfred Owen completely got rid of his morals and proceeded to write poems about the horrors of war. Because people can recognize live by horrible morals, it does not necessarily mean change will happen.
