“I learn how great and wonderful and universal is the deity of love, whose empire extends over all things, divine as well as human” (Plato).
“The ancients who wished to illustrate illustrious virtue throughout the kingdom, first ordered well their own states,”(Confucius)
Wishing to be sincere in their thoughts, they first extended to the utmost their knowledge” (Confucius).
“Aware of the suffering created by fanaticism and intolerance, we are determined not to be idolatrous about or bound to any doctrine, theory, or ideology, even Buddhist ones” (Hanh, par. 1).
“We are determined not to accumulate wealth while millions are hungry and dying nor to take as the aim of our life fame, power, wealth, or sensual pleasure, which can bring much suffering and despair” (Hanh, par. 5).
“We will do our best to select a livelihood that contributes to the wellbeing of all species on earth and helps realize our ideal of understanding and compassion” (Hanh, par. 11).
“For since the universal nature has made rational animals for the sake of one another to help one another according to their deserts, but in no way to injure one another, he who transgresses her will, is clearly guilty of impiety towards the highest divinity” (Aurelius).
Paragraph 5: Present a value or principle of your own, in your own words, and show how it would guide action toward one of the options, therefore, agreeing with one of the choices above but disagreeing with the other. State briefly a defense of your contribution to the storehouse of wisdom. And state briefly why you find it ethically preferable to the competing alternative.
