I’d say ethics starts with honesty and respect for laws, extends in earning a living to adhering to professional ethical codes and avoiding conflicts of interest, and for those especially concerned with social justice, comes to include applying principles which involve asking questions, like            1) Greatest General Good Principle: "Will this benefit the greatest number of people?" 2) Principle of Fraternal Charity: "If tables were turned, could I live with the consequences of my decision?"  3) Principle of Universality: “What would be the results if everyone acted in this manner?”


Here’s my “ethics”: “Pursue your own gain, otherwise predators will eat you. The strong survive, the weak don’t it’s natural lawjust as maximizing your happiness and pleasure comes naturally not sacrificing for others. Acting out of envy or upon your 'I want' desires means you’re master no one is pulling your strings. Do what it takes lie, cheat, steal, spread misinformation—to succeed. Celebrate success as evidence of superiority. The meek won’t inherit the Earth. 'Those who have the gold make the rules!'”       (Note: capitalist greed seemingly drives creating wealth better than state non-market system planning.)
