  lit+ " ETHICS DIFFERS FROM SCIENCE IN THAT
         THE FUNDAMENTAL DATA FOR ETHICS ARE
  FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS AND NOT PRECEPTS
  THIS IS TO BE UNDERSTOOD STRICTLY  THAT IS TO SAY
  THE DATA ARE THE FEELINGS AND EMOTIONS THEMSELVES
  NOT THE FACT WE HAVE THEM ... "   sug> CONSCIENCE
  from  B RUSSELL [#] [16] [45]
  maxim> " ETHICS AND POLITICS ARE
           BOUND UP WITH LIFE " but
  these are ANTITHETICAL to each other
  as in the title of a panel moderated by
  Dr. Wayne Flynt [#]
  twice Nobel Prize nominated author
  July 31, 2003 and sponsored by the
  Capital City Club Board of Governors, Montomery
  Alabama with the title
  "TRUTH LIES and LIBATIONS"
  "ALABAMA POLITICS - THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT!"
  lit+ " ... I COME DOWN IN THE MORNING ...
         AND I TRY TO THINK ..."
  "THE LONGER I WORKED
  THE MORE I FELT CERTAIN IF FELT THAT
  AS IMPROBABLE AS IT MIGHT SEEM
  THERE WERE MOMENTS WHEN AN
  INDIVIDUAL CONSCIENCE WAS ALL THAT COULD
  KEEP A WORLD FROM FALLING."
  first citation from a quote in
  "Timebend" attributed to the
  GREAT PHYSICIST Hans BETHE [#] and the
  second citation from
  "The Crucible" both by Arthur MILLER [#]
  the above also cited by Bob HERBERT [#] in
  "The Public Thinker" and Editorial of the
  New York Times February 14 of 2005 who wrote
  "Arthur MILLER'S [#] DEATH LAST WEEK MEANT MORE THAN
  THE LOSS OF AN OUTSTANDING PLAYWRIGHT
  IT WAS THE LOSS OF A GREAT  PUBLIC THINKING
  WHO KNEW WHAT IGNORANCE AND FEAR AND
  THE MADNESS OF CROWDS  ESPECIALLY WHEN EXPLOITED BY
  SINISTER LEADERSHIP COULD BE ...
  FOR THE UNITED STATES
  WHICH STARTED A MISGUIDED
  PRE-EMPTIVE WAR IN IRAQ
  IS SHIPPING PRISONERS OFF TO
  FOREIGN COUNTRIES TO BE TORTURED AND
  HAS PRESSED THE REWIND BUTTON ON
  MATTERS OF SOCIAL PROGRESS
  THIS MAY BE ONE OF THOSE MOMENTS ...
  MILLER IS GONE AND
  IF WE ARE NOT WISE ENOUGH
  TO PAY ATTENTION
  HIS UNCOMFORTABLE TRUTHS WILL DIE WITH HIM"
  med> ETHICS or an INNATE SENSE OF MORALITY
       is a measure of SANITY
  the INSANE are neither ETHICAL nor IMMORAL
      they are INNOCENT as are CHILDREN because
  THEY LACK REASON thus HAVE NO FREEDOM of CHOICE
  MORALITY IMPLIES RESPONSABILITY  as does SANITY
  ukr RATZIA = REASON   note see> SANITY
  sp  RACION   RATION             MENTAL SANITY
      RAZON    REASON   note INSANITY or CRAZE
  hx> note ARISTOTLE [#] defines VIRTUE as a
      CORRELATION or RATIO between our
  RATIONAL and IRRATIONAL or ANIMAL IMPULSES
  VIRTUE IS THE NORMAL RATIO HARMONIZING BOTH
  note ANIMALS AND GODS HAVE NO ETHICAL VIRTUES
       IF THE FORMER ARE DEVOID OF REASON AND
  THE LATTER OF AFFECTS or ANIMAL IMPULSES
  hx> note ARISTOTLE [#] HOLDS THAT IT IS NOT
           WEALTH OF EXTERNAL BEAUTY BUT IT IS
  THE CONTENTS OF THE INNER CHARACTHER THAT
  DETERMINES THE MORAL CHARACTER AS IT SEEKS
  CONTACT AND BEHAVES TOWARD OTHER BEINGS
  AND DOES NOT SEEK ONE SIDED BENEFITS THUS
  BECOMMING A MEMBER OF A POLIS or SOCIAL BEING
  IN THE ABOVE SENSE ETHICS IS A DOCTRINE OF VIRTUE
  hx> myth> Shai OSTER [#] in the December 6 2006
      WALL STREET Journal reports about
  " ... IT MAY BE TO LATE TO SAVE ...
  THE MAGNIFICENT BEAUTIFUL WHITE DOLPHINS
  known in a CHINESE LEGEND as
  THE GODDESS OF THE YANGTZE ... "
  note in 1990 200 ANIMALS WERE RECORDED
       in 1997  17 DOLPHINS WERE NOTED
  SHOULD THIS ANIMAL BE EXTINCT IT WILL JOIN
  THE MONK SEAL THAT WAS HUNTED TO EXTINCTION
