ETHICAL CODE, an ethical code is not enforceable, is not to be enforced, but is a luxury of conduct. A person conducts himself according to an ethical code because he wants to or because he feels he is proud enough or decent enough, or civilized enough to so conduct himself. An ethical code, of course, is a code of certain restrictions indulged in to better the manner of conduct of life. (PAB 40)

ETHICAL CONDUCT, conduct out of one’s own sense of justice and honesty. When you enforce a moral code upon people you depart considerably from anything like ethics. People obey a moral code because they are afraid. People are ethical only when they are strong. (Dn 55!, p. 25)

ETHICS, 1. the term is used to denote ethics as a subject, or the use of ethics, or that section of a Scientology Church which handles ethics matters. (BTB 12 Apr 72R) 2. ethics actually consist, as we can define them now in Dn, of rationality toward the highest level of survival for the individual, the future race, the group, and mankind, and the other dynamics taken collectively. Ethics are reason. The highest ethic level would be long-term survival concepts with minimal destruction, along any of the dynamics. (SOS, p. 128) 3. ethics has to do with a code of agreement amongst people that they will conduct themselves in a fashion which will obtain to the optimum solution of their problems. (5008C30) 4. the rules or standards governing the conduct of the members of a profession. (HCO PL 3 May 72) 5. ethics is a personal thing. By definition, the word means “the study of the general nature of morals and the specific moral choices to be made by the individual in his relationship with others.” (AND) When one is ethical or “has his ethics in” it is by his own determination and is done by himself. (HCOB 15 Nov 72 II) 6. that which is enforced by oneself, his belief in his own honor, and good reason, and optimum solution along the eight dynamics. (PDC 37)

ETHICS BAIT, a person in continual heavy ethics or who is out ethics. (HCO PL 4 Apr 72)

ETHICS CASES, SPs and PTSes. (HCOB 3 Apr 66)
