Well. “Are you going to teach us how we ought to live our lives?” No, not at all. This is a personal reflection. I am going to listen to you, thinking about what you say, and make any final judgment. Of course, I recognize we are all mortal humans. Every individual has already made a faith commitment to believe what he thinks is the spiritual life or the thought that is supposed to direct her life. Survival is the main ethical way that instills human ethical values. It indeed shows the individual’s intentions and state of heart and mind in the moment of the action. It comes from within.

"Do you do anything to get food?" The question has less to do with questions of right or wrong than with question of survival. How we respond to life events is what determines the moral content of our acts. Unless we know by empathy the moral content of others’ actions and the full range of circumstances, we cannot judge the ethical reality. If we are not ready to connect with others to some extent and see the impact of our human relationships, then we are limiting our means to discriminate between right and wrong.

Often we find a big gap between the real world and our vision of one ethical world. The troubled atmosphere we breathe in the planet today does not require a specific example to conclude the world is declining. Ethics is an eclectic model to overcome the chaos of judgment implied in every crisis. However, if we just mention the 2008 global economic turndown, it indeed pushes the ethical age to the forefront. "Does the free market corrode moral character?" No. It corroborates what ethics means: human dynamics and relationships; nevertheless, ethics generally connotes doing the right thing. Hence, unethical behavior destroys our trust and dignity.
