Abstract


This study aimed to investigate the effects of cultural conservatism, basic democratic government endorsement, common good democratic endorsement and national militarism on the moral judgment competence. Data (N=96) of bachelor, master and m.phil students was collected from 2 universities and 1 postgraduate college in southern part of Punjab province, Pakistan. Culture conservatism scale, Basic Democratic Government Endorsement Scale, Common Good Democracy Endorsement Scale and National Militarism (War Politics) Scale were used for measuring cultural conservatism, basic democratic government endorsement, common good democracy endorsement and national militarism. The Urdu version of Moral Judgment Test was used to measure moral attitudes and moral judgment competence. The finding showed no relationship with cultural conservatism, basic democratic government endorsement and common good democracy endorsement, while there is a significant negative correlation with national militarism (r = -.27, p< .05) with moral judgment competence. The postconventional arguments also showed a negative correlation with moral judgment competence. These findings are discussed according to the prevailing political conditions in Pakistan.
