Quora Answer : According to nowadays' societies (and without considering any type of "standards"), what is the current definition of morality?

Mar 19, 2018

Don't hold prejudices against other people because of their "type" (ie. race, gender, sexuality). Assume everyone has equal worth and deserves equal treatment unless they, specifically, as an individual, do something which warrants treating them differently.

Assume that people have the right to a minimum standard of life, including food, shelter, healthcare etc. And that we should all pitch in to help those who can't help themselves.

Be nice. Be respectful.

Don't lie about people. Don't cheat them. Don't rob them. Don't violently assault them or injure them unless they actually overtly express that they want it, and give consent. (Boxers, sado-masochists)

It doesn't matter what you eat, as long as it didn't suffer.

Recycle. And be aware that the mass of humanity is doing damage to the environment. Try to do something about that.
