An ethic is a moral philosophy by which one should abide. My belief is that ethics are a code of integrity and because of this an individual should undermine all rationality in order to influence one's "ethics" and determine what is right and what is wrong. Ethics are used in everyday life to determine moral direction and to penetrate absolute good over relative good. The problem is how "absolute good" is to be determined within transitional societies. Another problem involving ethics is its role amongst the lives of humans and what purpose it truly serves. And so, ethics are benevolent trade.

What purpose do ethics serve, and why are they important? When I utilize my ethics, I endure a state of peace which is impossible to describe. So, my conclusion is that ethics help one find peace and undermine all that is "bad." But, then, on a broad basis, why are ethics important? I believe that they play an important role in the advancement of society and that they bring us closer to Utopia. How could civilization have come about without, to one's interpretations, important ethics such as patience and honesty?
