    Morality isn't so much a 'need' or something that has been invented over time, as something which is inherent within us - not from a religious perspective but from an evolutionary one I suspect - that it takes far too much time and energy to keep deliberately making enemies by behaving in a way that is harmful to others.  Observing this, humans have developed written versions (or prior to writing, word-of-mouth versions).  Animals don't have a moral code, but don't deliberately harm each other without reason (food, defense, procreative competition), and humans are largely the same, and have a natural morality and tendency towards a balance of both self preservation and altruistic acts for others in a non-threatening environment.  However, the problem remains that not only do sociopaths gain power (I'm thinking of the obvious Hitler here), but they also gain popularity, the history of which challenges, though does not rule out, the notion of humans as having any sort of basic natural morality.

    Morality is a way to help protect the population. The rules and laws set down are established for protection only. Now days, some of the laws are for monetary gain and have nothing to do with "for the common good." Certainly the thing that differs man from animals is "morality." Morality is "virtue" a description of right vs. wrong. The laws of Moses were praised as the way to morality. Men have the capacity for virtue, nobility, ethics, principles, and righteousness. The TV News needs to flaunt men and women with these virtues instead of the immoral. It is better to be popular because of value instead of evil. Morality is something to strive for. The knights of old lived as nobles and strived to uphold virtue and morality. Not always successful but worthy because of their attempt. Virtue is a shield against evil. Today as in olden days some men are so wicked that animals have more morality. Become virtuous and wear the shield of righteousness. Right is might! You ought to try it!
