'How can a society work where as long as the majority agree with something it becomes acceptable?'

Marvellous question. Whereas, if we determine twenty-first century social acceptability in terms of adherence to the opinions of a vocal minority in the bronze age Near East, clumped with some later additions hobbled together from existing mythologies, selectively edited and then subjected to several centuries of varying interpretation, translation and reinterpretation – that way, utopia lies. Yes, of course, it's all so obvious. Step this way; mind the graven images.
