Life as the Origin and Basis of Morality -- Part 2 of 2 -- Video
In the second half of this two-part video series, Mr. Stolyarov discusses the fundamental alternative of life versus death that every human being faces and the impossibility of consistently choosing death without dropping dead on the spot. Implicitly, every one of us chooses life, so every one of us needs a system of ethics that answers the question of how one ought to live. Mr. Stolyarov outlines a three-tiered system of basic morality which follows from embracing life. The first tier of morality is doing no harm to others. The second tier of morality is inflicting no harm upon oneself. The third tier of morality consists of civility and integrity. These views of morality can be embraced by anybody who values individual human life – irrespective of other religious beliefs or lack thereof.
