According to secular humanists, human values should comprise the commitment to improve universal well-being. Ethical principles should be assessed by their effects on people, not by how well they conform to preconceived ideas of right and wrong.

Secular humanists reject that values and ethics are imposed from any deity. In that it echoes simple atheism. Secular humanism goes further challenging humans to develop their own values, and maintains that through a process of value inquiry, where reflective men and women can reach rough agreement concerning values such as integrity, trustworthiness, benevolence, and fairness; components of effective morality that are universally recognized.

These qualities are celebrated by almost every human association, not because god ordained them, but because human beings cannot thrive in communities where these values are ignored.

Secular humanists strive to offer a nonreligious guide that hopefully one day will conduct humanity in pursuing fulfilling and humane lives – lives that are rich intellectually, ethically, and emotionally, without reliance on religious faith.

Rule number one: there are no rules.
Rule number two: go back and read rule number one.

There's no sense in establishing humanitarian rules of conduct. Left to their own devices people only do what is in their own best interest. That's why governments (aka, the wealthy) make laws to hobble the masses and enforce them with bullets. Unfortunately there is no one to make governments obey their own laws.
