Moral authority comes from following universal and timeless principles like honesty, integrity, treating people with respect.
Undermine their pompous authority, reject their moral standards, make anarchy and disorder your trademarks. Cause as much chaos and disruption as possible but don't let them take you ALIVE.
It is not wisdom but Authority that makes a law.
The voices of moral authority in the theatre demanded only punctuality and physical performance. In the light of continuing pressure and stress, the occasional lip service paid to moderation was meaningless. Starvation and poisoning were not excesses, but measures taken to stay within the norm.
I have a strong disrespect for authority and for rules. Including gravity. Gravity sucks.
