No.


Explain why morality isn't constant. For it might be as though it is constant to others with a certain moral perspective, give and take what nurtures or destroys.

You would have to be a paragon of your chosen morality to remain consistent in it. Humans are emotional and biased. They fluctuate, I can't put it any simpler then that.

Morality is subjective, and if you look closely at a person, their morality shifts with experience and the expansion of knowledge. People's environment and nature plays an influence in morals as well.

My sentiments exactly. Chaotic as the conflux of difference is, it is entirely necessary.

Agreed, the way a person thinks changes over time as they learn more and gain more experiences

So isn't change the only constant here? Therefore the universal morality as the right thing to do at all time, would be to constantly evolve, in order to better fit the natural environment.

However, that being said, this "natural environment" is based on what standard? As in the current environment and economic system that the modern human society based on, isn't the way how nature works. While the changes that our modernization had brought onto its surroundings are pushing Earth's biosphere threshold beyond sustainability. Therefore when history as an indicator of the consequences of our actions, towards ourselves and our environment as a whole, we're clearly approaching to another societal collapse. Only this time it'll be on a global scale, due to the globalization of intensive agriculture and cash crop incentive. Which had changed the way on how we eat. And not in a good way either.

When will we ever learn our lesson that business as usual is not the solution, anymore so than it's the cause of our problems. And yet, we seem to be rather bad at that department as well.
