Pro

Stability is a superior goal to morality as morals are relative to each individual society. Stability is the most noble of goals, as it is the only permanent goal any society can reach.

Con

It would most certainly be better to unstabilize an immoral society for the sake of changing it to normality than stabilizing an immoral society for the sake of keeping it that way.

Pro

Normality itself should be stability, as that is the best goal to strive for. It is better to have stable immorality than unstable morality.
Morality cannot attain stability, because morality provides that all individuals within the society have a right to free thought, which includes the thought of striving for stability at all costs. These individuals are more strong willed than individuals that prefer a lack of one will, which would eventually cause stability to result, even though the society originally promoted morality..
Societal stability and oppression could still coincide with societal development in things other than morality, things that could further guarantee the happiness of the society. An immoral and stable society can in fact be happy a lot more easily than a moral society, as it does not have to counter the threat of the clashing of morals, which is the cause of all human suffering.

Would stability in a society not imply morality exists. Do they not work together? With out morality there would exist anarchy. anarchy being stable seems to be an oxymoron.

Indeed. That is part of my argument. Stability in the sense I speak of is incompatible with our current morals, and that is why it is argued against.

Would one being a cause make it superior?

That would be a result as the morals would be changed.
