The Code for Global Ethics
THE CODE for GLOBAL ETHICS
by Rodrigue TREMBLAY
The central message of the book is that it is not necessary to be religious to act morally, and that on the contrary, when people are religious to the point of fanaticism, they become immoral.
This book provides a moral compass for anyone who seeks to follow its principles in order to think and act as a humanist. The author develops the idea that rational humanism provides an objective moral code,and offers reasons for behaving morally,within the global context of a shrinking world. Since our worldview affects how we interact with others,any moral code must be judged as to how its adherents treat other people and whether or not it improves people's lives. If the adherents treat others badly and their moral code reduces people's quality of life, it is a bad moral code;if the adherents treat others with dignity and respect and the code improves people's lives,it is a good code of ethics.
—This is the ultimate pragmatic test of reality and results.

“This book represents a valuable and indispensable guide through the
complexity of modern life and moral issues facing us every day. It offers a
natural and far superior alternative to traditional religious moralities.”

—Daniel Baril, Canadian anthropologist and author.
