So I think I have a pretty standard life as most people in the West (work Mon - Fri, spend time with friends on weekend, rinse, repeat), and one thing I've come to realise is that there isnt really actually much scope in my life for morality, as in I'm rarely in situations where I have to make moral decisions / demonstrate my moral beliefs.

So was just curious what are some of the key moral beliefs people on here have, and if there's actually ever been situations where you've chosen to be moral (or immoral)?

Meh. I bought 4 red Velvelt cupcakes, they were supposed to cost around £4. The man put it in the wrong packaging and I saw at self service that it costed 15p. I could have gone back and been a nice moral person. However after consulting with my friend, I didn't.

It haunts me to this very day.:sigh:

Ps sorry Sainsburys

I was young and stupid mkay?

Is this not a situation where you must face a moral decision?

My moral beliefs are fairly simple

- I'm against anything that would be/is of detriment to members of the human race; in particular, anything that would cause (or is presently causing) suffering or distress;
- I'm pro-justice, and I hold a firm stance against inequality, discrimination and prejudice (all of which relate to injustice); and
- I believe it is best to set an example by being kind and considerate to create a better world for others, for it would be immoral to exhibit behaviour with scant regard for the feelings of those around you.

And I'm always conscious of how my behaviour relates to these values, all of which I hold so dearly

I think I'm a bot :/ - my moral code is hauntingly similar to Asimov's laws

what about kindness to animals?
all your ethics mean nothing if you eat animal products

as meat eaters, we are all terrible people
