For a discussion on Ethics

A project of TdF, in collaboration with Andromeda s.r.l., in relation to the development of the Commercial Astronautics, and to the development of a really free terrestrial market. 

We begun the elaboration of a collection of ethical principles, targeted to accompany our walk of human Terrestrials, and of entrepreneurs. Our goal, while we decide to invest a part of our time in this task, are the following ones:

  • to improve our relationships with the others humans 

  • to improve the symbiotic relationship of our kind with the rest of nature. 

A collection of ethical principles differentiates itself from a legislative code, in first place, because it does not include any coercive nor punitive tool. Ethics deals with how to avoid damages to persons and proprieties, more than how to punish the culpables of damages. 

Therefore its goal is the one to provide an high cultural reference, that can be studied and used to solve relation problems that are complex, conflictual or potentially conflictual (= almost all the human relationships?... : -)). 

Follows a collection of writings, articles, historical and actual papers, that can be used for the discussion. 
We will keep this collection upgraded, as we will find/receive new references.
