the ethical system of a man or a group of men is a

normally the system of ethical behavior by which a
or a group of men lives changes in an orderly
manner as broader dynamic systems
triggered by more humanly favorable life circumstances.
there emerges an ethical thema of what is right and
is wrong in behavior which is appropriate to each
of dynamic emergence.
within each thema certain specific values of right and
will be expressed by one man or group of men
of variations in the components of a dynamic
while another man or group of men may

there is a natural driveness in man to proceed from a
to a higher level dynamic system and thus a
natural driveness to move from a lower,
humanly restricting, conception of right and wrong
