What defines a person's morality
Hanisauland: Lexicon @todo: from Preprocess
Values and rules
This word comes from the Latin term “moralis” and translates as “relating to morals”. Morals are the values and rules that are generally recognized in a society. When one says that someone acted “morally”, it means that he behaved in a way that people think is right and good.
How should one behave?
In everyday life, people keep asking themselves whether they are behaving morally: Am I fair to my fellow human beings? Am I not offending or hurting anyone? And they ask how they can act morally: How can I intervene when I notice that the weaker and defenseless are being bullied? What can I do to make people in poor countries better off? A simple answer to such questions cannot always be found.
There are commandments that prescribe moral behavior, for example: “You should not kill” or “You should not steal!” Without these commandments or laws, living together in a society is not very possible. For Jews and Christians, the "Ten Commandments" name the most important rules that people should observe.
Occasionally the term “morality” is also used to describe a good attitude. If an athlete shows a lot of commitment, one speaks of "fighting morale"; with soldiers you sometimes hear of the “good morale of the troops”.
By the way: A related term is "ethics", which we have also explained here in the lexicon.
