NO ONE CAN CHEAT IF EVERYONE BECOMES A CHEATER
Keywords:Utilitarianism, Imperative, Universal Law, Humanity, Virtue.
This paper explores the formulation of universal law in the realm of the major moral philosophical treaties. If the maxim of a person is to cheat, to make a false promise, that person should be prepared to live a society in which cheating would become a universal law. However, it would be interesting to investigate these moral principles to establish a universal law based on morality and virtues, having humanity as an absolute end. The essay will further contextualize certain cases of moral turpitude and instances having reference in popular epics.
