Hard Morality and the Base Rule
« on: January 27, 2012, 10:46:22 PM »
There is no objective solution to morality in academic philosophy.  However, as subjects and relations theory is an objective view, morality is easily understood.  Morality, in common understanding, is refraining from doing what one wants because of cognitive reasons.  It differs from ethics in that ethics is determined from one's position (or job) in life, morality is not.  There are three types of morality:

1) Integrity - Lying, cheating and stealing.  Our morals refrain us from doing these to protect our integrity.

2) Soft Morality - Triage,  making a decision for better or worse.  Morality sometimes refrains us from making an immediate good in favor of a greater good. 

3) Hard Morality - The Base Rule.  The Base Rule is an axiom of subjects and relation theory.  It states that related subjects can not combine for the same reason unrelated subjects can not separate.  In life there are only three extrinsic subjects that are hard and immutable, they are permanent.  One is our species, an other is our family and the third is our gender.  Of the three our gender is the weakest as it can be changed with surgery or hormones but for practical purposes it is immutable too.  From hard morality comes the morals of cannibalism and incest.  In academic philosophy, these morals are called culturally relativistic.  In subjects and relations theory they are consequences.

There is also of course the issue of infidelity.  Infidelity in one sense is an act of lying or cheating which falls under the first type - integrity.  It is also a direct application of wrong - if a subject is not within an extrinsic subject.  (The extrinsic subject is the surname of the marriage.)

One last type of morality that is worth mentioning applies to the first axiom of subjects and relations theory.  This axiom, the league rule, states that, "An intrinsic subject can not combine with an extrinsic subject because if it did a new extrinsic subject would instantly be created."  An example of this is if a person gets married to their boss.  Employers are extrinsic to employees; it is therefore immoral to be in a position to be able to fire one's spouse.  If a new extrinsic subject were pertinent of this relation however, this rule would not apply.
