MARX - An “ideology” is shared attitudes, values & beliefs. There are different economic "modes of production" throughout history that shape our ideologies & morality.
An individual may believe they are acting on “moral” grounds, but they will always be acting in the interests of the predominant class, creating false consciousness.
However without moral agreements or rules, society could probably not get started. There is a complex & symbiotic relation between economics & morality. If the economic life of society becomes chaotic, individuals' moral beliefs change rapidly.
Nature provides evidence of co-operation amongst animals and plants, which is how “ecosystems” come into being in the first place.
Animals behaviour can often appear to be “moral” when viewed from the outside, but they live in a non-conscious, non-symbolic world of instinct. We differ from animals by doing what we do consciously. Human beings are able to choose and take responsibility for the decisions that they make. If human beings are “selfish” then they are so in an oddly co-operative way, otherwise there wouldn’t be families, tribes and societies.
Children's education is so important. Rousseau's view on ethics is that we are born as moral beings with a huge potential for goodness, but we get corrupted with artificial needs. Things like needing ipods and phones create vices that impact our innate goodness and innocence...
Morality is not just a form of instinctive behaviour. How much of it is genetic and how much of it is a result of nurture?

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
