Animal Morality

Human morality is based on animal morality. It may surprise to learn that some animals live to a higher code than humans, e.g. bonobos, dolphins and whales, even some fish.

  1. Do not eat or kill your young.
  2. Do not eat or kill your kin.
  3. In combat for mates, inflict no permanent injury.
  4. Your top priority is providing for your offspring.
  5. Avoid incest.
  6. Respect other’s territory.
  7. No surplus killing (do not kill more than you can eat).
  8. Do not torment your food.
  9. Do not eat or kill members of your own species.
