Ethics; moral principles that govern a person's behavior or the conducting of an activity. Garrett Hardin’s "Lifeboat Ethics" is a very interesting piece. Although in my opinion it actually has very little substance or anything other than Garrett Hardin’s imperious tone and how he thinks we should properly help the poor. "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; teach him how to fish and he will eat for the rest of his days." Garrett Hardin uses this ancient proverb to say that we do not need to give these poverty stricken countries our surplus food but we do need to teach them how to make their own. This is an interesting theory so to speak.
