Objective Values

Author's Bias: Interpretation: conservative

On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country, to help other people at all times, to keep myself physically fit, mentally awake and morally straight.

Take a moment to consider the moral values of:

telling the truth which reflects one’s personal integrity, or

dependability which reflects one’s trustworthiness, or

good will which reflects one’s benevolence, or

justice which reflects one’s fairness

These values are found in many cultures; however, no one wants to say that they should be absolute. Instead people wish that these moral values were universal.

Why?

Many prefer to keep these values relative to the individual, community, and culture lest they be seen as intolerant or prescriptive or closed to the possibility of the moral standard evolving.
