    Default What are your ethics/morals based on?

    Religion, feelings you get, something else?

    my morals are based around the premise: "what will help in the long run, not how does this make me feel"

    so I'm for killing if it's going to mean the future is gonna have a better outcome than if we let the person live. Because I can't have my feelings getting in the way of progress. That would destroy us.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    I'm not religious, so no to that.

    For me it's mostly based on a sense of fairness and justice for all. What produces the best result for the greatest number of people.

    Also yes to "what will help in the long run" rather than "how this makes me feel right now"

    What makes the most rational sense, and maximizes the enjoyment and freedom to everyone around. Also while keeping things as fair as possible. The two don't mix well and it will never create a perfect system, but it works well enough. It will always be a balance.

    My morals and ethics always start external to myself, and I try to keep myself independent of it as much as possible.

    I guess I act based around some very basic principles, like being honest and kind, having respect for life, etc.

    These are probably at their root derived from how I was raised (childhood religion and the culture of my family/hometown) as well as different experiences with life. But it just feels like a part of me. And, oddly, a part of the world, if that even makes sense.

    I wouldn't say I consciously compare situations to the principles in any systematic manner. Something will just either feel "right" or "wrong" usually. If it's a kind of tricky set of circumstances, I would, if possible, discuss with a trusted friend or family member beforehand.

    I suppose fairness and equality of opportunity, although I'm fully aware that not all people are created equal or develop equally.

    I was raised not to judge people by their physical appearance or their personal beliefs but by how they treat others and the content/substance of their words, and for the most part, I like to think I've carried that into adulthood.

    I've tried to reinforce that in my son, but beyond that I am very apprehensive about trying to instill any other values or beliefs in him, no matter how honorable or "right" they might seem.

    Emotions and an inner knowledge of what's wrong or right, probably incorporated into our culture by christianity long ago and now it's a constant remnant no matter how non-religious I or others are. I use logic sometimes too ... mixed with feelings. Animals have the ability to feel pain, therefore they are equals etc.

    An attempt at understanding, respect and benefit of the doubt for all living beings and their needs, and to lesser extent wants and desires.

    Harming another is wrong, therefore we must harm no one.

    To have absolute certainty we harm none, we most know all before we act.

    We can't know every possibility, so when in doubt, take no action.
