has "morality" been defined in this thread?

i see morality as an overarching belief in a broadly defined "right" and "wrong", applied not individually but universally, and rooted in the idea that some set of laws/morals/rules/thoughts/behaviors is the "correct" way for all humans to act.

i see personal ethics as an individual's freedom to act as they see fit in any given situation, rooted in their own personal needs, desires, priorities and preferences. they need not be accepted by or coordinated with the personal ethics of any other individual (much less a society), although relationships will greatly impacted by how one's personal ethics plays with those of another.
