Organisation of society

A society should be organized in such a way that the science of survival, called ethics, is in harmony with the generally accepted views of society.

Can everyone concern themselves with every asepct of every ethical question? No, it would take up far too much time, no time would be left for producing things. This was the subject of the section on "A society based on a division of labour". Society has to delegate the task of thoroughly dealing with ethical issues to certain individuals.

These individuals, who organise society, then deliver ideas, ideals, concepts, guidelines, and laws. In the best case, this works smoothly. The broad mass of the population agrees with the recommendations of the elite. Elite here refers to everyone, whose output in culture, philosophy, religion, journalism and politics significantly shapes the world view of the population.

  Double damage through unethicalness

If this elite acts unethically, then this does not just endanger optimal survival, or even the basic survival of a whole society, it also means that many more people have to preoccupy themselves with ethical questions. It is a violation of a work-sharing society. Since a part of society, an elite whose task it is to organise society, fails, others have to try to deal with their tasks.

As the influence of an individual grows, the effort he or she makes to respect the three central concepts of ethics must grow too, and they must investigate their influence on society by means of ethics diagrams.

Philosophy Philosophy
Long-term planning and stability have to be the guiding rules of politics. A philosophy based on the mathematic branch of games theory.


Ethics is the science of survival. Surprising analyses of what is ethical and unethical. Ethics that correspond to survival or downfall in the real world.

Ethics as the logics of survival
Survival as the target, ethics as the science of implementing this target. Of course, we must then define who, how and over what time period survival refers to in this context.

Cosmic threat for mankind: meteorites
According to game theory, the task of intelligent life is to protect the home planet from catastrophes. Let's look at the ethics related to this.

Civilization decision
Back to the simple life or on to a hightech civilization? An ethics evaluation gives a clear answer to the course that should be taken.

Knowledge brings change
Central concept 1: Knowledge is a prerequisite for ethics. Knowledge is thus able to change the bases of decisions laid by ethics.

Verifying knowledge
Central concept 2 - knowledge changes what ethical decisions are - necessarily leads to central concept 3: Ethics force us to verify knowledge

If everybody would do this
Consequences for the areas of survival family, group and mankind. An estimation of consequences always starts with the question ''If everybody did this...''.

Division of labour in society
Can each individual engage in ethics to such an extent that they can work out a complete answer to each basic situation in their life by themselves?

Ethics for groups
The guidelines for a group should be configured in such a way that the decisions of individuals are influenced in a direction that is of benefit for the group.
