Ethical Principles

 

Now that we have identified a set of values that can be the basis of a valid ethic, let’s explore the requisite belief system that goes with it.  By logic alone we can infer from the definition of E+ the following

Ethical Principles:

1. To act ethically, each person must strive to maximize creativity and its logical equivalents.

2. Ethical actions always increase someone’s creativity without destroying, limiting, or diminishing anyone’s creativity.

3. Unethical means can never achieve ethical ends and always have unethical consequences.

4. Means which are not ethical ends in themselves are never ethical.

5. It is unethical to tolerate unethical, predatory, or parasitic behavior and therefore inaction in the presence of these behaviors is unethical.

6. It is ethical to learn and unethical to be certain; and therefore it is ethical to doubt.

7. The exercise of power over others is never ethical except in the case of self defense against the imminent aggression of others.

8. The taking of another’s property by theft, fraud, deceit, or coercion of any kind is never ethical.

9. No individual can legitimately delegate to another, nor to a group of any kind, authority that the individual does not himself/herself possess.

10. All laws, rules, and regulations are ethical and legitimate only insofar as they forbid and/or intervene in the commission of acts that are unethical, predatory, or parasitic.  Government edicts that violate this principle are not truly laws at all.

When you accept the validity of the E+ Ethic you will also agree with these ten principles, because they are simply logical consequences of the definition of the ethic.  Conversely, those who disagree with any of these principles you either choose not to accept the ethic or you need more information to understand ethics, more likely the latter.

For an easy way to keep oneself aligned with the E+ ethic, we recommend the Titanian Code of Honor.
