According to the research of Rushworth Kidder in his book, Moral Courage, there are only four dilemmas of humanity. Every single moral/ethical issue is at least one of these dilemmas.
1. Truth vs. Loyalty = honesty/integrity vs. commitment,promise-keeping
2. Individual vs. Community = “Us” vs. “them”
3. Short term vs. Long term = now vs. then and consequences for each
4. Justice vs. Mercy = fairness/equity vs. love and compassion
This about these and how they apply today at work, home and life.
