How far does the idea of ethical intuitionism relevant in today�s society?

Ethical Intuitionism, also referred to as the moral intuitionism stands on the thesis that our intuitive awareness of right from wrong, of value and other evaluative facts, actually form the basis of ethical knowledge. This is thus a philosophical belief about the presence of objective moral truths in life. The ethical intuitionists thus believe, that right or wrong is both self-evident and it cannot be known by human experience. Critics of the idea, believe that people often come to moral conclusions based on their own personal experiences. There is thus very little scope for moral intuitionism in a society which is run by impulse and instigation both in real and online life. The fun has taken precedence over moral judgement as we see various memes streaming without sensitivity that it might offend.
