Definitions[ edit ] The term common law has many connotations. The first three set out here are the most-common usages within the legal community.
Ethics are inter-personal or social codes of conduct. Niyam is cleanliness, happiness, austerity, studying oneself and surrendering to God. But for every one thought, there is one who had such a thought prior, and the same thought prior to each and every thought beforehand.
Morals, derived from the Latin root mores, are the norms widely observed by a community. I agree with everything, but your vocabulary needs a switch. All human interaction can be voluntary. That is the number one most important moral of them all. The ethic of that would be for people to live in a true anarchist society.
Government is only people providing services on a violent compulsory basis. A tax is money taken at gunpoint. The better way to parse the difference between morality and ethics is to say that morality is the common, everyday evaluation of whether a behavior is socially acceptable.
Ethics is the critical reflection on personal and social morality. Groups and societies have moral expectations just as individuals have moral judgments. Equating morality with the individual and ethics with society makes it impossible to see that some social arrangements are immoral and that groups as a whole can be morally wrong.

There for morality changes. Humans once came to the ethical conclusion that slavery was OK. Not long ago, the Founding Fathers came to the ethical conclusion that "All men are created equal," but also chose to persist with the ancient morality justifying slavery.
Only recently has morality caught up with ethics concerning slavery. But the world still has plenty of slavers, slave owners, and slavers.
We need to pursue ethics because nothing else will overwrite bad morality with good morality.

This is a very dangerous field of study and it might partially explain the vast contradictions between the constitutions and declared programs and policies of some governments and governors and their criminal practices against their people.
Thank you again for this very important field of study. It would be because of the poor ethics of the company not the morals of the individual. Ethics are meant to protect individual rights, and this case would be a poor assessment of that. Ethical lines are often blurred, but morals are concrete.
It is clear, accurate and concise. Morality but reading through the comments has helped me to understand the differences. Thanks to each of you for your comments.
My personal understanding is this: There is a tradition of speaking of an objective order, such as "natural law. Ethics There is also the tradition of speaking of a subjective order, i.
A helpful method to use in making a moral decision respects the human person as the locus of three or four spheres that interrelate: Each sphere contributes to the dialogue that is known as conscience formation. Trying to use just one or two of these spheres will render a moral judgment that is less than intellectually and spiritually honest.Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future Summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.
