were "right," they yet in the violation of them heard the protest of the 

automatically aroused voice of "conscience," that is to say the expression 

within the individual of customary rules which have indeed now ceased to 

be his own but were those of the community in which he was brought up. 

 

Ideal morality, on the other hand, refers not to the past of the community 

but to its future. It is based not on the old social actions that are 

becoming antiquated, and perhaps even anti-social in their tendency, but 

on new social actions that are as yet only practiced by a small though 

growing minority of the community. Nietzsche in modern times has been a 

conspicuous champion of ideal morality, the heroic morality of the 

pioneer, of the individual of the coming community, against traditional 

morality, or, as he called it, herd-morality, the morality of the crowd. 

These two moralities are necessarily opposed to each other, but, we have 

to remember, they are both equally sound and equally indispensable, not 

only to those who accept them but to the community which they both 

contribute to hold in vital theoretical balance. We have seen them both, 

for instance, applied to the question of prostitution; traditional 

morality defends prostitution, not for its own sake, but for the sake of 

the marriage system which it regards as sufficiently precious to be worth 

a sacrifice, while ideal morality refuses to accept the necessity of 

prostitution, and looks forward to progressive changes in the marriage 

system which will modify and diminish prostitution.
