People decide their values based on a set of basic principles. Those principles make up their moral compass. Your moral compass tells you what to do when you are asked about a scenario you have not heard before. They are the groundwork that complex moral stances are based on. Without any further ado, What basic principles do you use to decide how moral something is? Do they have a system? How did you come to have this compass? (What made you choose those principles over others? How has your compass changed over time?) How well does your compass serve you (in society, in your personal life, etc.)?
