Interesting research idea. It seems like a hard one to narrow down. Do you plan on generalizing morality? It seems that there are so many differing views on what is "good" or "bad" in certain societies. Are you going to look specifically at American culture and society? Because ideas of moral rights and wrongs differ from culture to culture. It might be a good idea to lay out from the beginning, before doing any of your surveys, how you define good versus evil in regards to who exactly you're looking at. Just some thoughts. I'm interested to see your results. Good luck on the project.
