ethics is a major branch of philosophy and encompasses right conduct , good living and what is right or wrong.
ethics is just a product of a human brain and as such subjective i.e. ethics is just rules giving human race a hope that one day we will be able to control our heritage /animal instinct to be successful in the evolution game/

Ethics requires the ability to think logically. My answer is Logic, but I have a sneaking suspicion that you are looking for something like sentience.

ethics give limited order to a society and to humans. that's is its only use and it may be even inconvenient in some cases.
Human beings have ............to enable them to make changes, influence others, to become who they are etc.
.different values that are revelant solely to ourselves, another layer that we share as a family, community and so on but we also have universal values
For example, Society would not exist if there wasn't a need for other people and a need to survive. Keep going please
Or is it law that creates or destroys order or both ethics and law? What do we use when we are trying to create order, Shaneen
