Moral values cannot be conjured out of thin air and used to create a better society. Morality is the product of society, not the other way round.
We live in a society based on exploitation and cut-throat competition. That society creates its own (lack of) morality. To create a different morality we need to build a society based on co-operation and equality.
But that means challenging capitalism, and none of our hypocritical political leaders are prepared to do that.
