With liberal democracy embattled, public discourse grown toxic, family life breaking down, and drug abuse and depression on the rise, many fear what the future holds. In Morality, respected faith leader and public intellectual Jonathan Sacks traces today's crisis to our loss of a strong, shared moral code and our elevation of self-interest /5(10).

To put it simply, ethics represents the moral code that guides a person’s choices and behaviors throughout their life.

The idea of a moral code extends beyond the individual to include what is. Family Life really blazes." —Sonali Deraniyagala, New York Times Book Review.

In The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Skloot has an epiphany when she speaks with cousin Gary in Clover: the devoutly religious Lacks family has a different way of viewing Henrietta's death and see her illness not as the result of rampaging cancer cells, but as something "man-made" (i.e.

voodoo) or "doctor-made" (i.e. deliberate harm by doctors). Family life is the progenitor of true morality, the ancestor of the consciousness of loyalty to duty.

The enforced associations of family life stabilize personality and stimulate its growth through the compulsion of necessitous adjustment to other and diverse personalities. Jonathan Sacks is one of the great moral thinkers of our time. His latest book, Morality, applies his powerful approach to the unprecedented challenges of our time - social, political, economic, and above all, his words be heeded throughout the land.

Sacks unpacks a whole litany of dystopian trends arising from our relentless preoccupation with me, me, me, Premier Christianity/5(15).

Jodi Picoult's book, My Sister's Keeper, illustrates the juxtaposition of family ethics and family communication by retelling Adam and Molly Nash's true story about the multiple ethical decisions that confront a family after a child is diagnosed with a rare medical disease.

Such a society would be cheerful, polite, hardworking, and generous. There would be no “passengers or parasites,” since “if man does not work, he ought not to eat.” In all, a perfectly Christian society would be somewhat economically socialistic, yet very old-fashioned in its code of behavior and family life.

This may be part of the morality-play aspect of the book—the sense that all the characters are in fact one person.

But if that is the intention, it does not work to critique the selfish life at the center of the story. A Decent Life explores what this might mean in practice with regard to our relationships with family and friends; the strangers we run into; nonhuman animals; and the political sphere.

It concludes with Nine Rules for Moral Decency, including 'Enjoy reading philosophy, even when it advises you to to be better than you can reasonably be.'".
