    My personal morals are confusing and too messy/contradictory to splay out here.
    The Warrior's Code is where it is at.

    Rock that honor system like a samurai.
    I'll even wear the goofy helmet when push comes to shove.

    Eh this is a difficult thing to lay out in a post. Basically, I think that the 'goodness' or 'badness' of an action can be judged based on its foreseeable outcomes, ie, whether it can reasonably be expected, by the person that does it, to be beneficial or cause harm. This is a fairly subjective test, but also the only one that is really reasonable without perfect knowledge.

    I also think that things which cause harm are permissible in cases where a lesser harm replaces a greater harm, but that that does not render them harmless. So, it may be permissible to lock up a criminal (provided that the harm done is less than the harm that would be done if they were not locked up), but that does not detract from the basic harm caused by depriving people of freedom.

    Finally, I try not to make a distinction between action and inaction; I see inaction as a form of action and equally subject to a harm/benefice test. If, by inaction, you allow a person to die who you could easily have saved, then that is not morally distinct from causing their death. I take personally responsibility very seriously.

    If my morality were in a nutshell, I would eat it and let it infuse my being.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Do all that you can yourself and then seek assistance. Don't talk about what cannot be understood or what you haven't done. Keep your word. Speak your mind so that you convey what you mean. Chew your words never. Choose your words wisely. Life is a game: play fair and play well.

    The meta-ethical fundamental; it's all relative constructs born of sentiment origin.

    My personal subjective methods; consider all specific situations for what they are worth; take a generally utilitarian methods to most matters; don't hurt the innocent; follow my conscience; and hold no concrete truth concerning morality.
