I’m not much of a moral philosopher. I’ve read some Kant, and bits and pieces of other things. I’ve also read the entirety of the bible back when I was christian, and what Christ had to say about them, but that isn’t really ethics directly. A fair while ago a friend of mine and I started designing a religion after getting into an argument about Robespierre, and came up with some ethics. Eventually we decided that what we were doing was creepy (it was essentially inventing a cult) after people that we cared about pointed out to us that it was, but for me the ethos has survived. I try to remain in keeping with them; they see like a good guide. If anyone would like to pick them apart for me, I’d be glad to have it. Luckily for me, these aren’t written onto stone tablets.
1. Be generous with forgiveness; holding a grudge serves no one.
2. Be as kind to others as you wish they were to you; they are just as real as you are.
3. Be held by yourself to a higher standard then everyone else; do not demonize those who act immorally.
4. Desire only for happiness, love, and knowledge in this world; being wealthy is not a virtue, being highly esteemed is not a virtue.
5. Pursue the Truth; it will allow you better to serve others and yourself.
6. Share the Truth whenever you can; it will bring others to righteousness.
7. Never Hate; hatred breeds only misery, and arises only from ignorance.
8. Never Fear; protect yourself and your interests to the best of your ability, but never be afraid of things because you don’t understand them, or things you cannot control.
9. Never refuse to admit when you are wrong; your views should change to reflect your reality, rather then your reality changing to reflect your views.
