Daily Prompt: Morality Play

Where do your morals come from — your family?
Your faith?
Your philosophical worldview?
How do you deal with those who don’t share them, or derive them from a different source?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us THE SOURCE.

Let’s start first with the definition from wikipedia on the source:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morality

Morality (from the Latin moralitas “manner, character, proper behavior”) is the differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are “good” (or right) and those that are “bad” (or wrong). The philosophy of morality is ethics. A moral code is a system of morality (according to a particular philosophyreligionculture, etc.) and a moral is any one practice or teaching within a moral code. Morality may also be specifically synonymous with “goodness” or “rightness.” Immorality is the active opposition to morality (i.e. opposition to that which is good or right), while amorality is variously defined as an unawareness of, indifference toward, or disbelief in any set of moral standards or principles.[1][2][3][4] An example of a moral code is the Golden Rule which states that, “One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.”[5]

Now Webster says about the same thing:

mo·ral·i·ty

 noun \mə-ˈra-lə-tē, mȯ-\

plural mo·ral·i·ties

  1. The Stepford videos are hysterical! I admit I was nearly entranced by the first one. “lingerie… lingerie… lingerie…” LOL

    I want to be obedient… Wait where did that come from?! I agree with you the more we deal with our own day to day lives and not get caught up in others, the happier we will be. Loved this post =)
