Would help if you knew what you where talking about
Ethics (also known as moral philosophy) is a branch of philosophy which seeks to address questions about morality; that is, about concepts like good and bad, right and wrong, justice, virtue, etc.
Major branches of ethics include meta-ethics, about the theoretical meaning and reference of moral propositions and how their truth-values (if any) may be determined; normative ethics, about the practical means of determining a moral course of action; applied ethics, about how moral outcomes can be achieved in specific situations; moral psychology, about how moral capacity or moral agency develops and what its nature is; and descriptive ethics, about what moral values people actually abide by.
Governments undoubtedly has to abide by the people that elected them into office - It is their fabric of ethics / morals in this case that the government has to abide by .
Bottom Line; It is the people what are the ethics or morals by majority - not the government
You sound just like priggish little Miss Perdita, although she was concerned, not with shagging anything in particular (that concern seems to be your recurring theme), but rather with the streaked gillivor, in whose piedness she saw the human touch and so would not set the dibble in the earth to plant it. If you want an argument, go read The Winter's Tale. I'm not gonna to work on your farm no more.
