Ethics

Ethics are moral principles of proper conduct within society.

It is an Abstract Noun.

It concerns the behavior on daily choices and decisions, considering what is right or wrong.

Ethics relate with rights, responsibilities, duties, and obligations of determinate culture, religion, and society.  

Yet, there is still a discussion about Universal Fairness: whether or not to act in a specific responsible way in front of particular situations, concerning inherent Human Rights.

In a moral judgment, it also regards to a person`s character.

To think and discuss ethical foundations, it is necessary to contextualize humans into a society. The community configuration of life not only need to have some cohabitation rules but also make it fundamental.

Empathy, care, and compassion are guides that enable creating basic assessments of right or wrong, in a debate within different perspectives and cultures, always searching for evolution and universal fairness.  

As rational beings, it is of our obligation to reflect about our rights and responsibilities. To live in a community is also to influence not only the people that are around ourselves; our decisions also influence future generations.

Ethic theories are written to affect human behavior, to help them follow moral guidelines, rather than instincts.

Regarding a change in society by moral values, a good start would be promoting ethical education to children. The majority part of kids are born with a strong sense of ethical ideas, that can be historically evidenced in some civil rights movements with infant participation.

Universal Fairness has been developed by the United Nations with Human Rights.

It is a fact that a significant part of the world’s population does not have access to basic education, and cannot even address the ethical issues they face in their own lives. Therefore, mainly people consider that what is right or wrong entirely up to each individual.

It is possible to change this reality, especially in the digital technology configuration of the contemporary world. Information has never been so disseminated. A guideline to help to understand this new reality is more than necessary, to change how we see life, our relations and how we socialize among each other.

Limits need to be clearer, and respect developed. Valuable information and consciousness are what we need to make a better world. Because, in the end, everything is connected.
