Ethics can be taught innovatively
The Aga Khan’s suggestion about ethics being taught alongside other subjects makes great sense. Look around – you’ll see ethics crumbling in every sphere, from politics to police, social service to sports, medicine to marriage. Part of the strife that ensues is driven by base tendencies like violence and greed – but part is also driven by confusion about ethical versus unethical behaviour. Such confusion clouds our judgment of several vital things, from the logic of laws to personal promises, why we shouldn’t zip past a red traffic light, to why we should help someone in need.
