|Moses breaking the 10 commandments tablets|
The Ten Commandments, have always been an important reference when it comes to morality issues and discussions.
Taking into consideration they have been available for a very long period of time in history, and since, undoubtedly human knowledge, habits and social behavior have changed in a large extent, these commandments could be modernized to have a more humanist and global ethics system.
Quoted is an attempt to reach this goal (as seen in original post):
1- Proclaim the natural dignity and inherent worth of all human beings, in all places and in all circumstances.2- Respect the life and property of others at all times.3- Practice tolerance and open-mindedness towards the choices and life styles of others.4- Share with those who are less fortunate and mutually assist those who are in need of help.5- Use neither lies, nor spiritual doctrine, nor temporal power to dominate and exploit others.6- Rely on reason, logic and science to understand the Universe and to solve life's problems, avoiding superstitions, which numb the mind and are an obstacle to thinking for oneself.7- Conserve and improve the Earth's natural environment – land, soil, water, air and space – as humankind's common heritage.8- Resolve differences and conflicts cooperatively without resorting to violence or to wars.9- Organize public affairs according to individual freedom and responsibility, through political and economic democracy.10- Develop one's intelligence and talents through education and effort, in order to reach fulfillment and happiness, for the betterment of humanity and of future generations.Source: Global Ethics
