What Is A Moral Agreement

The four rights that at the end of the 18th century were considered fundamental human rights – the rights of life, freedom, the “search for happiness” and property – were regarded as freedoms and not as positive rights. Other people have generally been considered morally forbidden to interfere in the survival of another`s life, the exercise of freedom, the pursuit of happiness or the preservation of property. They were not morally obligated to save other people`s lives, to ensure their freedom, to promote their happiness or to provide them with property. The kick-off of a moral clause in contracts for “talent”, i.e. artistic artists, seems to have been a reaction to the Roscoe `Fatty` Arbuckle case in 1921. After the media outcry, Universal Studios decided to supplement the contracts with a moral clause. The text of the Universal Studios clause of 1921 is as follows: “The actor (the actress) agrees to behave himself with due regard to public conventions and morals and agrees that he (she) will not do or commit anything that tends to degrade him in society or bring him to public hatred, contempt, contempt or mockery or the envy of the (she) in society to shock , insulting or insulting the community. or the bias of the Universal Film Manufacturing Company or the film industry. In the event that the actor (actress) violates a provision or provision in this paragraph, Universal Film Manufacturing Company has the right to terminate the contract and cancel it by informing the actor (actress) of his intention to do so five (five) days in advance. [2] Moral obligations may seem strong enough to assimilate a good legal contract, but moral obligations and legal contracts are completely separate entities. A moral obligation can be coded in a contract, and certain moral obligations are protected by law even without a contract. However, some treaties may contain provisions that some consider immoral.

Ethical rules of conduct determine what actions or practices are necessary or prohibited. In this book, I will follow the common practice of using the “moral rule” or “ethical rule” closely and applying it only if there is a fairly precise specification of actions or practices that are prohibited, authorized or necessary. For example, a manuscript submitted for publication should not be published in advance, with the exception of versions written for very different target groups. General exhortations such as “Be honest” or “Treat each person as a target and not as a means,” moral rules in the broadest sense could be called by “moral rules,” but they are so general that they are commonly referred to as “fundamental principles” or “ethical principles,” and that is what I will call them here. In short, a moral rule has a certain form, an ethical principle is a general moral consideration. Therefore, the terms “moral rule” and “ethical principle” may apply to the same ethical consideration. For example, people often talk about the “principle of informed consent,” which means the moral rule that, before insinuating dangerous experiences or treatments, they must be given complete information about what to do with all the risks involved, and obtain the consent of the person.
