"Symptomatic of our times, though, is the fact that the right to privacy has been twisted to mean that all decisions made in private are right."

Well said. And that thought process is exemplified in the admonition, "just follow your own conscience."

And what we see in the culture as well, as expressed, for example, in the romantic advice, "just follow your heart" is that the "privitization of morality" (I love that expression) is actually an isolation of the individual's conscience so that in the absence of objective moral input, moral decisions are often made on strictly emotional criteria.
