    Too bad the Senators didn’t listen to such wise words. Come to think of it, senators still don’t . . .

    @enviroethix Is he in error?

    @wrensoaring 😩

    @philoquest The answer to that question would depend on the answerers’ different perspectives, neh?

  • 30w ago philoquest philoquest

    @wrensoaring It would depend on a number of factors. Whether or not it is a matter of perspective will bring us to the question, is there or is there not a moral truth in the world? Unless we define "error" as deviating from some set of given guidelens. Not too sure, but looking forward to a response from @enviroethix 😁

    @philoquest Ah, most interesting, the question of morality. Such a societal construction, based on the culture of said society. I’d claim that while ethics is intrinsic to human societies, morality is not. Morality is so often bound up against religion, making it inherently discriminatory. Universal ethics, in my opinion, transcends any and all religion, keeping the well-being, that which is good for the individual, or sometimes group, of the specimen/-s in focus.

    What if you continue to make the same mistake? What should you do to remedy that?

    @laurencehuntcpt. IMHO review your true priorities. Ask what you really want and keep that in your focus at all time. dont let yourself be distracted.

    @wrensoaring Ethics and morals relate to “right” and “wrong” conduct. While they are sometimes used interchangeably, they are different: ethics refer to rules provided by an external source, e.g., codes of conduct in workplaces or principles in religions. Morals refer to an individual's own principles regarding right and wrong.

    @m.c.strayer I beg to disagree. Ethics can be said to be the theory and hypothesis behind moral judgement, while moral is the individual’s judgmental usage of aforementioned ethics. That being said, I understand what you are saying. My point is that the whole concept of “right” and “wrong” is manmade, and differs from culture to culture. Thus it is moot. The individuals are entitled to universal laws that defend and protect their rights. This is not the case. Therefore, I claim that true ethics are intrinsic to life, and what you claim is ethics, are moral judgements put into writing.

    @laurencehuntcpt Depends on the context. Keep approaching from different angles and allow yourself downtime and relaxation to spark creative thought.

    @wrensoaring Unless there is a God. Then there would be morality outside of the individual, grounded in the essence of the world. Also, getting @m.c.strayer in here because I just Googled those words 😂 Ethics: Moral principles that govern a person's behavior or the conducting of an activity. Morals: A person's standards of behavior or beliefs concerning what is and is not acceptable for them to do. So ethics are more written guidelines and morals are more of a belief (according to these definitions I found).

    @philoquest Yes, concur

    While some mistakes are pretty obvious for anyone to see, some are more subtle and much harder to spot which brings forward the importance of awareness, perceptiveness and wisdom, all of which are essential for realizing one's mistakes. It takes great energy and training to discipline a mind not to be a fool in this regard.
