Neo-Tech Advantage #5

Rational or good actions increase prosperity, happiness, and psychuous pleasures. Irrational or bad actions undermine those values. While each individual's life and values are unique, certain basic actions never change in terms of good or bad actions. The rightness or wrongness of those basic actions do not vary according to opinion, or from person to person, or from generation to generation, or from culture to culture, or from solar system to solar system. Universally good or bad actions are objectively based on the biological nature of human beings and are definable in absolute terms. But other actions are amoral and cannot be judged in terms of good or bad because they are a matter of personal preference determined by individual differences.

Universal morals are objective. They are not based on opinions of the author or anyone else. Universal morals are not created or determined by anyone. No one can deem what is moral and what is not moral. The same moral standards exist for each and every human being throughout all locations, cultures, and ages. Those standards are independent of anyone's opinions or proclamations. Moreover, two and only two black-and-white moral standards exist. Those two moral standards are:

Any chosen action that purposely benefits the human organism or society is morally good and right.

Any chosen action that purposely harms the human organism or society is morally bad and wrong.

Feelings and emotions, on the other hand, cannot be considered as standards, absolutes, or morals. A person's life-style, desires, needs, and preferences can vary greatly without altering that person's character or without making that person morally right or wrong. Still, moral absolutes do exist. And following or violating moral absolutes determines a person's character and self-esteem. The two moral absolutes essential for prosperity and happiness are:

  1. Integrated honesty for knowing reality
  2. Integrated efforts for increasing productivity

Habitually violating either of those two moral absolutes precludes genuine prosperity and happiness. Related to those absolutes are the following moral issues:

Individual rights
* * *
Use of force
Ends justifying the means

The list below shows how each moral issue separates into either a moral, pro-life, pro-individual category or an immoral, anti-life, anti-individual category.

Objective morals are based on reality, reason, logic. Subjective "morals", on the other hand, are based on unreal, arbitrary feelings or wishes. All such unreal "morals" require force, deception, or coercion to impose them on others. Subjectivism, mysticism, existentialism, and "do your own thing" are all attempts to deny objective morals by implying that no standards exist and everything is of equal value (thus denying objective morals and values).


Moral Issue: Honesty.

Prosperity and Happiness Approach

Conscious striving for self-honesty. Unyielding loyalty to honesty. Productive effort. (Moral)

Failure and Unhappiness Approach

Pragmatic compromise and evasion of honesty. Habitual dishonesty. Parasitical laziness. (Immoral)

Moral Issue: Productivity.

Prosperity and Happiness Approach

Productive actions that increase values to others and society while increasing effectiveness in dealing with reality. (Moral)

Failure and Unhappiness Approach

Destructive actions that decrease values to others and society while decreasing effectiveness in dealing with reality. (Immoral)

Moral Issue: Individual Rights.

Prosperity and Happiness Approach

Recognition of the inalienable right everyone has to his or her own life and property. (Moral)

Failure and Unhappiness Approach

Denial of individual or property rights in order to plunder the life and property of others. (Immoral)

Moral Issue: Sacrifice[ 2 ].

Prosperity and Happiness Approach

Refusal to sacrifice is by nature life enhancing and thus is morally right. (Moral)

Failure and Unhappiness Approach

Sacrifice is "noble", especially when done for a "higher" cause or, better yet, no cause. (Immoral)

Moral Issue: Use of Force.

Prosperity and Happiness Approach

Rejecting the initiation of force, threat of force, coercion, or fraud against any individual for any reason is the foundation of morality. (Moral)

Failure and Unhappiness Approach

Use of force (especially government force) is acceptable against individuals, especially if the result serves the social "good" or a "higher" cause. (Immoral)

Moral Issue: Ends Justifying the Means.

Prosperity and Happiness Approach

In regards to force, the ends never justify the means. All moral actions are based on principles that prohibit initiatory force, threat of force, coercion, and fraud as a means to accomplish ends, no matter how "noble". (Moral)

Failure and Unhappiness Approach

Ends can justify the means. Force and coercion can be pragmatically used for the "good" of society. Individual rights can be violated or sacrificed for "noble" ends. (Immoral)
