ethics mold our core being

our well-founded standards

embrace morals and values

and not follow one’s feelings

nor “what society accepts”

every equation has two sides

let knowledge prevail

Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do, and what is right to do. Peter Stewart

  1. Good point that ethics does not follow one’s feelings nor what society accepts. It has a deeper ground. I like the quote from Peter Stewart.


  2. Feelings are wonderful but ya can’t always act on them or your feelings could get you in trouble and acceptance by society seems like every thing to a lot of people but I could care less. I prefer to stay true to myself, know what to do and when to do it, instead of acting on feelings 100% of the time. You pack a lot of thought-provoking, common sense in so few words – excellently done! 👍


  3. 💜 Trouble is EveryOne; different “ethics” EveryBody a Solution-in-Waiting with an Acceptance of Diversity



      1. 💜 It’s ,”True” that “the right thing to do” is YOUR!!! “ethic” and Others may THINK!!! differently or agree or couldn’t give a fuck; for example My Deceased Dad Brutally Beat (basically Criminal Assault) My Siblings and I in The Name of Discipline “”the right thing to do”” so I AM Very Grateful 🙏🏿 that He is Dead and Forgiven for DOING THE RIGHT THING IN THE WRONG WAY!!! Rant Over



      2. I am sorry this happened to you and your siblings. You make a very good point. The “right thing to do” in your case, was done in the wrong way. 🙏❤️


  4. This made me think of the Will Smith/ Chris Rock situation. Always two sides.
