Ethical Guidebook

A discussion of the difference between our personal values and our public ethics, how mature citizens can support both, and why our love for public ethics must trump our love for personal and group values when they conflict in the public space. Ethics offers a guidebook for evaluating public issues and finding multilateral solutions to endless cycles of values centric conflicts and unilateral violence.

A New Years Resolution

I pledge allegiance to Public Ethics - the civil insitutions, due process and multilateral solutions of democracy that allow all people to freely hold and enjoy their many different born and chosen personal and group values, and that provide a fair means to allocate public dues, balance the impact of shortages and the benefits of excesses, insure the rights of minorities alongside slowly changing majorities, and enable us to fairly arbitrate both internal differences and external conflicts without reverting to unilaterally imposed constraints on the rights of others or unilateral escalation of violence.
