But its not only about Trump - he is just the acceptable / unacceptable face of something very deep going on over there

The battle is between traditional American values of God and Family and Patriotism against the newer ones of identity politics and social
justice and civil disobedience - but it runs so deep that its wrong to categorise it as merely tribalistic - that explanation is far too simple


That's an interesting categorization you put forth. Some of us favor the traditional American value, along with social justice and civil disobedience. I count myself among them.

The topic of this thread is Applied Ethics, and what are the bare facts.

Yes, 30% ti 40% so far love him; and 60% are 'turned off' by him. He is indeed "the face of something deep": namely, the attempt by multi-millionaires and billionaires to introduce fascism to the USA. I mean by "fascism" the merger of government and corporate administration run by oligarchs and favoring corporations. Often it results - as we have with Trump (and with Putin) today - in a kleptocracy.

The fact is DNA wise all humans are programmed with certain generic features to optimize for the whole of humanity
while leaving room for individual freedom within the requirements of the whole

This does not explain why tribalism has always existed in our species and still does no matter how advanced we become
So were we all programmed to think of humanity as merely a single entity then there would never be any divisions at all

Tribalism emerged out of necessity and is adaptive, i.e. has survival values.
It is noted humans in the early stages started with the realization of the advantage of being in small groups but they also realized the greater advantage of larger groups, thus larger and larger groups [tribes] are form as evident in modern times.
Naturally there are the cons of larger groups, thus the need for rules to manage whatever is immoral.

While the progress is towards larger group into one single entity, the thrust here is to develop common shared goals on critical issues, e.g. survival of the species.
Even with the drive for one single entity in terms of shared visions and goals, divisions are still needed re the necessity of specialization and its advantages.
E.g. an ant colony will act as one entity when the nest is under threat, but there are nevertheless different divisions and groups of ants doing their specialized task.

Thus the target is to strive for humanity to act as a single entity especially toward threats against the human species as a whole, e.g. climate change, limited resources, WMDs, rogue meteor/asteroid.

For example if there appear a rogue asteroid heading Earth's path and is large enough to destroy Earth to smithereens, it is imperative that everyone on Earth think and act as one to deal with the threat rather than on their own group or tribe.
The same attitude need to be developed to deal with the other critical threats against the human species.

THE JOY OF LIVING ETHICALLY

Here is something to think about.

I will define three emotions in the order of how valuable they are. I’ll remind us of a key imperative of Ethics, the violation of which impedes the experiencing of the most valuable emotion. And will then draw an important conclusion from these deliberations.

The Unified Theory of Ethics is that new paradigm everyone has read about here: https://www.ilovephilosophy.com/viewtop ... 1&t=195234 as well as in the References listed below which provide more details and clarification.
The following are three definitions derived from this Unified Theory of Ethics, using the three major Dimensions of Value to do the derivation. Those Dimensions are Systemic (“S”) value; Extrinsic (“E”) value; and Intrinsic (“I”) value.
Satisfaction is a Systemic emotion. Pleasure is an Extrinsic emotion. And Joy is an Intrinsic emotion. So here is an analysis of certain select emotions, arranging them from least (at the top) to most value.

S: Satisfaction
E: Pleasure
I: Joy

[Recall that one of the early theorems of Ethics (when phrased as an imperative) is Do no harm! To do harm is to conduct oneself immorally.]

Joy is the result of love (I-valuation.) Those who act immorally are not behaving lovingly toward those to whom they have done harm. Therefore to act immorally is to miss out on joy, to lack joy in their life.
Since a major benefit of complying with, and practicing, Ethics is to gain joy …as a result we feel sorry for those who don’t live their ethics. In an important sense, they are losers :!:

@ Progress:

To me, progress means trying to reach a goal.

Your idea of goodness centers, for example, is a form of progressivism, because it is an idea with a greater goal.

Most progress is considered as a moral obligation.
Sometimes progress runs backwards to what it normally does.

I like the idea of progress.

Thank you for speaking up.

I'm with you, Dan. I like the idea of progress also.

I am not sure I understand what you mean when you say "...progress runs backwards." Isn't the concept for that "regressions]"? Or "reaction"?

Yes, regressions.
Like saying life was better before the industrial revolution.

If I had a godly position, id probably take on the idea of leaving things alone,
unless they want to be some other way.

On the other hand, christian moral imparatives would say I must help all those in need.

This is yet another difficulty.

I used to want a revolution, where all beings are protected from death and helped to mentally evolve at a very fast rate.

Am I making an error in reconsidering this?

Let's say aliens gave new technology to humanity.
There are many ups and downs with this,
but is it better that we get a boost?
In a way, more fortunate people can give a boost to less fortunate people,
sometimes. Maybe we all need a little boost?

The best way to help those in need is to empower them to help themselves: either teach them skills, or set up a sovereign-wealth fund of some sort. This fund will endow them sufficiently that they can then pursue their own constructive projects.
Many will choose just to play games, watch TV, or to fritter away their time; but every now and then an Albert Einstein, a Jeff Bezos, an Elon Musk will come along ,pursuing their respective hobbies, and they will create wealth equivalent to what thousands of lazy bums are not producing. The productivity of those few virtuosos (along with the organizations they will found) will make it all worth while.

Some day, when there is less ignorance, due to improved methods of instruction that are more efficient and effective, most all businesses that start up will be structured as Workers Cooperatives. The workers will be the owners, or will be putting in the swat-equity to buy in eventually as owners. Thus they will tend to vote to pay themselves more, work less hours, yet still get it done! The highest-paid worker will only be allowed to receive four-to-six times as much as the lowest-paid worker - thus leveling the hierarchy we see currently. At present we note thaat the top officials are often remunerated at more than a hundred times more than thaat thelowest-paid worker gets. So let's endorse and promote workers co-ops That will bring us closer to an ethical world.

This is not only naked ethics -- but also Ethics applied to Economics.

"Some day" yes 'some day' ..

I believe all human individuals and humanity need to strive to that "some day" where every individual will be equal in everyway and still aligning towards whatever is the common shared purpose of optimality for the well being of humanity.
In this case, there is no need for salary at all.
The above is not an impossibility and I am optimistic given the current trend of the exponential expansion of knowledge.
But that some day could be a 100 years and more [150, 200, 500?] in the future.

In the meantime we have to be realistic in understanding thoroughly what is the reality state of the present and optimize within all its constraints while pushing at the fringe toward that ideal objective of that "some day".

What I see with you is you are forcing and trying to fit the wrong pieces of the jigsaw puzzle which would not end up in alignment with and towards the ideal in the future but rather will cause more chaos.

Is this really what you consider to be ideal, Prismatic567, for if it is what becomes of the value many of us treasure, namely, our Individuality?

Would we be equal in our taste as to what is the best desert? Would we all look identical?! You did say "equal in every way" :!: :!:


Because of your stated belief I now understand a little better how you could be a Trump supporter.
At first I was baffled at how someone who I thought cared about ethics, and the ethical life, would not right away detect in Trump those qualities that vary inversely with morality, qualities such as hypocrisy, selfishness, inauthenticity and corruption. Here in the U.S.A let us proceed to vote in someone who will unite us and spread harmony, rather than division ..someone who will be more likely to bring us together, to encourage cooperation, solidarity, brotherhood and sisterhood, and other Ethical qualities.

Now that we have more of a window into the recent poster's state of mind we can better grasp how one can view a character - i.e., DJT - who has so many properties that are the very opposite of ethics, and still think he is suitable to be 'the leader of the free world' or even that he is suited to have any powerful position at all.

Invoking Principle of Charity.
Surely you are not expecting me to assert 'equal in everyway' to the extent of equal height, every physical features to the same number of molecules in each person?

What I implied re 'equal in everyway' is equal for every inequality that we and the majority at the present are striving for and complaining about, e.g. basic human rights, opportunities, moral competences, freedom of speech, etc.

That you are so paranoid with Trump is very telling of your psychological state.

Since I am not American and do not participate in its politics my view of Trump is that of a government servant and he should be appraised objectively based on his terms of employment like an employee anywhere else on Earth.

Thank you for that clarification, Prismatics. I agree with what you meant by "equal", namely free speech, etc.
Since most adults have their biases, I don't know how you are using the concept "objective." I believe Trump does not regard himself as "a mere employee." He is an exxtreme Narcissist who has delusions of grandeur.

I see thast you do care about ethics, and want a more-ethical future. Your criterion for a President may be too narrow, though.

I apologize if anything I said was offensive. I did not mean to insult anyone. I''m okay and you're okay.

Whatever Trump think he is, objectively, it is a fact he is a contracted employee and government servant of the USA.
Surely the President has to accept and signed an employment contract with the terms specified clearly within the contract. This obviously would be the objective basis to judge any contracted President.

As I had stated, Trump can be classed with situational leadership and note the results [positive and negative] he had produced within the current situations. I judge Trump performance is net-positive taken into account all the + and - he had done.

My Moral and Ethics stance is that of Kantian where every individual must strive* towards the absolute good [as defined by Kant]. * it is striving but without expectation to achieve the impossible ideal of the absolute good.

But in the present conditions we are way off from the ideal good.
If that ideal good is 100/100, I believe at present the average good we have achieved to date is merely 20/100, so there is a long way to go.

Whilst we cannot achieve the impossible ideal 100/100, humanity from the present must strive for the higher average on a continuous improvement basis to as high as we can optimize within whatever the current situation is, i.e. we need to improve from 20/100 to 25/100, 30, 50, 60 till we plateau below the ideal. [note the learning curve].

Then in the future, say in 50 years, no one will elect a President like the current Trump who is narcissistic, boorish, egoistic, boastful and other negatives but is capable to doing and optimizing in the job required in the present situation.

Perhaps then in the future, what we need is a Servant-Leader, not a situational leader, i.e.

Servant leadership is a leadership philosophy in which the main goal of the leader is to serve. This is different from traditional leadership where the leader's main focus is the thriving of their company or organizations. A Servant Leader shares power, puts the needs of the employees first and helps people develop and perform as highly as possible.[1] Servant leadership inverts the norm, which puts the customer service associates as a main priority. Instead of the people working to serve the leader, the leader exists to serve the people.


In addition, the servant leader will possess the best ethical virtues and values as an exemplar to all.

Why not vote for a Servant Leader right now.


Such a one may be running for office currently. Clue: his VP choice has the initials CH. We need a feminine perspective to balance the masculine one. We need candidates who will bring us together rather than further divide us. We need public servants dedicated to making progress rather than to regression. Above all we need a President capable of empathy rather than selfishness. That is what Ethics teaches.

Notice that it pains most of us to cause pain to others, but it does not seem to pain Trump when he does so.


We urgently need to solve the Climate Crisis as well as the Pandemic Crisis. We need to avoid, or at least minimize, corruption.

Some governments tax pollution.
That is a step in the modern direction.

Instead of killing / fighting the rich in a commie revolution,
we tax the rich instead.

Likewise, instead of trying to stop all pollution,
you tax it.

Taxing pollution is much less violent and resisted than trying to control and run a business by force.

Trump with his negatives and positive is the most optimal kind of leader for the current situation in the US and also the World.

The present situation of the USA and the World [full of dirty politicians] do not justify to allow for a Servant-Leader to lead effectively.


Such a one may be running for office currently. Clue: his VP choice has the initials CH. We need a feminine perspective to balance the masculine one. We need candidates who will bring us together rather than further divide us. We need public servants dedicated to making progress rather than to regression. Above all we need a President capable of empathy rather than selfishness. That is what Ethics teaches.

Notice that it pains most of us to cause pain to others, but it does not seem to pain Trump when he does so.

We urgently need to solve the Climate Crisis as well as the Pandemic Crisis. We need to avoid, or at least minimize, corruption. Note the reference to Behavioral Ethics ...which has been integrated into the Unified Theory of Ethics which you can learn about in the STRUCTURE OF ETHICS paper linked to below:

True we need to solve the Climate Crisis and the Pandemic Crisis.
Other than holding the spread of the Covid19 virus - which the US is not performing that effectively, there is nothing much humanity can do with the Pandemic Crisis until a vaccine is found. This would need the co-operation of all countries and not only the USA.

I don't believe if Trump changes his policy in relating to environment concern, it will contribute greatly to climate change around the world.
The climatic effect is very complex and humanity have yet understand the full complexity of its nature.

Biden and Harris do not have any leadership qualities at all of any type. [note one of my speciality is on Theory of Leadership].
What evidence of performances does Biden have to prove his credential as a leader and what Harris had done to prove her leadership? There is no absolute correlation that a woman is obvious feminine and caring - note the history of female leaders.

A steel worker union official asked President Barack Obama at a June 1 town hall in Elkhart, Indiana, about job losses at a plant run by Carrier, an air conditioning manufacturer that recently announced plans to move jobs from Indiana to Mexico. He replied that some jobs "are just not going to come back," while others are in flux or rebounding.

In the above video Obama [Biden as VP] pronounced in a video the thousands of manufacturing jobs lost to China, Mexico and elsewhere are not going to come back and Obama merely resigned to it with indifference. He stated Trump's claims to bring back job is "stupid" no way, no answers to it, but Trump stopped the drainage of manufacturing jobs and brought them back [note the case of Carrier air con, the Iron Range mining industries] to some degrees and he is promising more in his next term.

As for Trump, he had already proven his mettle and positive results before he was elected, i.e. as a proven business leader with drives and yes it is his egoistic, boastful attitudes also drove him to be very aggressive in being result orientated so that he can boast about it.
You need to research into aggressive-result-oriented leaders [of all types] with proven records in politics, business and other organization in various situations.

Before the pandemic Trump had already proven his performance as net-positive and I believe with his potential he will continue to do so when we have a vaccine to hold back the pandemic.

Actually what you are being influenced at present in being anti-Trump is due your basic psychology of Tribalism, cognitive dissonance and an existential crisis. Plus you are relying on blind faith and hope Biden and Harris will do well - that is not objective.

You think your personal views re favoring Biden-Harris are ethical and moral, but I don't think so when your feelings are heavily constraints by the elements above.
You should research into these areas before resorting to ethics and morality.

Recently I have been researching extensively and deeply into Morality and Ethics and I believe your knowledge of Ethics is not that wide and deep.
Btw, do you have a full taxonomy representing the full scope of Morality and Ethics?
I am a progressive human being, a World Citizen, NOT-a-theist and not religious.
