Ethics And Citizenship

ETHICS AND CITIZENSHIP Say dictated popular ' ' The ethics are something that everybody says that it knows what it is, but if it embarrasses in the hour to explain, when somebody question. The ethics exist to establish norms that they determine as ' ' we must ser' ' in our attitudes, and our behaviors. Thus, ethics are a critical reflection of the morality, therefore it judges the different moral, it establishes norms and it imposes limits. To say on ethics and moral, is to explore the subjectivity human being, and therefore it is about something extremely complex. The ethics and the citizenship are factors important to structuralize a society, and the lack of these factors can provoke great social riots and take a society to its self-destruction. As well as the ethics, the concept of ' ' cidadania' ' it is flexible, therefore it is determined by each social group arrives at a certain agreement on which are the behaviors to be taken so that the life in society is free of conflicts. Therefore, it has the necessity to foment the ethics and the citizenship in favor of a life more joust, more solidary, more human being. A society without ethical principles and exercise of the citizenship never will become a happy society.

In an extremely capitalist society, dominated for the fever of the consumption, where what it determines its social status is ' ' TER' ' , ' ' POSSUIR' ' , instead of ' ' SER' ' , the individual becomes each more individualistic time, and one of the impediments in the exercise of the citizenship is the comfort position, the comodismo, not to want to become involved itself. We live in a society where to take off advantage of the fragility of the other it is to be smart, it is to be optimum. The justifications for the lack of the practical one of the ethics and the citizenship are innumerable, however amongst them what more we listen, he is that ' ' SYSTEM THE CULPADO' '. However, if we are integrant part of this system, consequentemente we are part of the one of the problem, and being part of the problem, we have that to act to foment the change that as much we clamamos. The society crosses great world-wide crises, however the biggest crisis that we face is the crisis of the conscience, of distortion in the values of the family, the lack of the religiosidade, the respect to the next one. We need to retake our values, that are each time more forgotten, and from there, it is that we will be able to live in a society more joust, fraterna, more happyer.
