Morality Clauses Having Nothing To Do With Morals

Chip Franklin



Hollywood is going to start putting morality clauses in contracts. So if a star does something immoral, they can fire him from the movie and move him into management.

Of course in Hollywood, they define morality like the rest of us; as someone else’s problem. ”

“I’d never do that, and if I did it’s because” a) I’m an alcoholic, b) I have a sex addiction or c) my parents didn’t pay enough attention to me.

And blaming Hollywood for our shortcomings is a dishonest cliche. I re-watched Grease recently, and heard this:
“Tell me more, tell me more, did she put up a fight?”


We are at an evolutionary cultural crossroads, and there’s no Hollywood, Trump, or slimy boss in the way. It’s regular people who need to fix what’s ailing us. And as far as morality clauses; we already have someone who judges us and is the ultimate barometer of what’s right and wrong; you see him every day in your mirror.
