Ethical standards in different parts of the world

Ethics can be defined as the rules or regulations established by the society or the government in order to achieve peace and overcome problems as much as possible. That's how I define ethics personally. I always thought that if the ethics established did not achieve such objectives, then these are not ethics in the first place..Only a bunch of stupid blind rules.

Every country on this planet has it's own ethical standards due to the fact that every country has it's customs and traditions. However, all these different customs and traditions are still similar to some extent,because these countries want to ensure the establishment of a good society...EXCEPT for some other countries.

During my life here in Egypt,I observed that Egyptians are obsessed with their customs and habits because of no specific reason. Customs and habits in any other normal country is not only based on the ethical standards, food and dance and the music are considered parts of their customs and traditions. Except for Egypt, the customs and traditions are based on slut shaming women who do not wear a headscarf, legalizing the killing of homosexual people and killing couples for committing the "crime" of sex.

As I said before, ethics are made to ensure peace..Do these rules lead to peace??? Lol NO! I remember one time in my university, the students were very angry about the fact that a couple had sex..REALLY? so they are upset of the sexual intercourse that happened between them (which should be a private activity) and they are not upset of the millions of innocent people who are killed everyday by the radical Muslims.

Even when a woman is sexually harassed, she is the one who is blamed for being sexually harassed and people say shit like "she should be harassed,just look at the way she is dressed" and the surprise is that these words mostly come from women like her! If I kept talking about the traditions here, I will end up having a cardiac arrest because their mind sets are pretty much RETARDED!

So instead of fighting terrorism,working hard and proving to the world that their "peaceful" religion is peaceful, they just spending their time on killing couples for having sex and increasing homophobia in people's minds and legalizing sexual harassment.

I am gonna ask this question again, are those ethical standards???

Perhaps TJ meant that any society's ethics can appear to be immoral to other societies. If so, the rest of the post directly relates to the statement.

We won't know, Strega, unless he explains himself. 

(BTW, please don't tell other people what you think I mean. I can explain myself should it ever become necessary.) ;)

Chuckles, did I ever mention I don't take direction very well? But because its you, I'll try really really hard not to tell other people what I think you mean - although the temptation is really strong :)

Laughs, I never mean well :)

Yeah, but I had to tell everyone what you meant, since Unseen won't let me do it for him.

Steve, You're doing better with temptation that I predict I will manage.

Yeah, but then again...I had a bad case of pun tourettes over on the Monkey Business thread.

CORRECTION:  the Collective Consciousness thread.
