I mean, if u save some1s life, it's generally a good thing, but maybe there is some1 who don't like that. So u never can do just good things and stuff like that...

Exactly. How can you say that saving someone's life is generally a good thing? I mean, whether or not people like it has no bearing on its moral worth.

Ethnics is just simply an illusion, mass hysteria, another hallucination in life.

All that matters is that you follow your heart, what you believe, instead of following the crowd. A small group in Nazi Germany did that and helped the Jews, because they believed that having to kill people just because it's the law is bad. The rest followed the Nazi and Hitler, who imposed the ethnics of that killing Jews is good.

Ethnics is just simply laws, rules we set up for ourselves. Laws and rules are also illusions. Invisible barriers.

I seem to be alone here, but I must disagree. Whether or not all people agree on what is right or wrong is a moot point. People weigh potential gains from moral losses to determine how 'good' or 'bad' an action is. Nothing is perfect, so we all decide on where the line is; and that's what causes the distinction. While morality determines IF an action is right or wrong, ethics determines WHY an action is right or wrong.

We all have different views on morality (that's a given truth), but they're all based in the same code of ethics.
