|Morals: morals refers to a more or less coded set of rules, action maxims, duties and prohibitions within a society or group. Most of these rules are unconsciously internalized among the members of the society or group. Their justification and the possible assessment of actions are reflected in ethics and meta ethics. See also values, norms, rights, ethics.<_____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Francis Fukuyama on Morals - Dictionary of Arguments
Brocker I 809
Moral/Fukuyama: Who can make decisions in principle independently of basic human needs (see Humans/Fukuyama), makes moral decisions and distinguishes himself/herself as a human being. Whoever makes moral decisions signals that he/she is prepared to risk his life for it. The clash of two moral people is therefore very likely to end in the fight for submission until death.
FukuyamaVsLocke/FukuyamaVsHobbes: the beginning and the core of a liberal society is not the mutual recognition of the right to life and property, but the mutual recognition of the dignity of the other. ((s) See Recognition/Honneth).
