These circumstances make humankind incapable of using their freedom and create chaos. Thus, persons realize that it is necessary to create something that can control them and prevent chaos.

“Cultural relativism asserts that the beliefs and practices of human beings are best understood by grasping them in relation to the cultural context in which they occur”. Based on this interpretation of morality, each society or culture has its own set of distinct moral codes and standards that are exclusive its inhabitants. Although the standards of morality differ from culture to culture, within the group there are strong expectations and codes of conduct that must be adhered to. Without universal adherence to the group’s codes and standards, there would be no cohesiveness and calamity would follow. External values and moral standards are limited in their application and understanding of morals since everything hinges on culture.

Even though I am a strong believer in God not all people is, therefore the social contract will apply for all
Personal Code of Ethics What are ethics? Ethics are moral values of action. Moral values play a big role with ethics, personally I believe that everyone needs moral values. Some moral values are just common sense because values are important personal standards that are valuable. Having morals are the freewill of having the choice to do the right or wrong actions.
First of all, the need of having a good moral education to prevent from having a world in which the value systems are unbalanced and constantly affect the progress of society. As many of us know, the basic unit of society is the family, that´s why we must encourage others to enjoy the balance brought through mutual respect and support.

The greatest message from Fitzgerald is that we should consider how society is currently and how is can change in the future. Scott Fitzgerald was gifted with the opportunity of experiencing a transition from a World War to a period of great joy and comfort.
Even human resource departments have been training employees to smile or behave positively. However, as Ehrenreich (2009) highlights, the pursuit of happiness might not always be wise and healthy. If positive attitudes are understood as an obligation, they will become false and unnatural. Ehrenreich (2009) stated that positive attitudes are more and more of an obligation, and we consider that these circumstances should be born in mind, because it changes the essence of HAW. Our model aims to promote a spontaneous emergence of positivity as a result of specific working.
To better our society and better oneself, our society needs to follow a moral compass. These morals rest on certain beliefs such as not belittling one another or envying others; in a successful society, everyone should also work hard for their earnings. A society must additionally stay mentally, and physically healthy, and pay respect to adult figures, through being grateful for they given. Though the foundation of morality rest in the belief that one must always be true to themselves, everyone has the right to the freedom of speech, and equality, and one must always be positive and look for the good in life. To begin, a growing issue in today’s society is low self-esteem, in which a person feels unworthy, incapable, or incompetent.

We all know there is a consequence for our actions; when addressing someone with authority or otherwise. Wherever we are, we are trying to gain something and the best way to succeed on our personal goals is to follow the system in place (like telling a teacher made up plans to not admit lack of preparation or betray his expectations). It is subconsciously understood that certain actions or lack of them will get you to be disliked, criticized or ostracized.
