"Are you an ethical person?" Regardless of your answer, a follow-up probe might be: "How do you know?" Your personal values reflect your beliefs, what you really care about. These values, if they really matter to you, are activated by and through your everyday decisions. How do you ensure that your values, those that reflect your best ethical self, are actually demonstrated in the choices you make on a daily basis? Sometimes what we say we value does not match our actual behavior. Being ethical requires the ability to discern and navigate competing values, continually striving to attain both personal and organizational goals with moral strength. This necessitates the development of skills that support personal governance and your moral competency. To be ethical, building moral strength needs to become a focus of your daily life, which calls for making a deliberate effort to apply the values you say you hold. In reading this book you will see how awareness of your thoughts and emotions-along with specific competencies-can influence your desire to do the right thing and bolster your ability to exercise professional moral courage at work. Drawing insight from the latest research in management, business ethics, organizational behavior, and psychology, this book is intended to help adult learners examine, leverage, and to continue to develop their best ethical selves in organizational life.
Dictators aren't just for countries. You can find them in relationships as well. A dictator is someone who decides how everything will be done and fully expects others in his world to abide by his laws. This article outlines 3 signs that you are probably in a dictatorial relationship. This is the most obvious sign, but a dictator makes the rules. No one else is allowed to contribute to the rule-making. If your boyfriend decides all of the rules and expects you to live by them, you are probably dating a dictator. One person in a relationship cannot make all of the rules. That is not the way that a healthy relationship functions. When one person makes all of the rules that the other must live by, that is controlling. If you don't do what your boyfriend tells to you may feel punished. He might ignore you or leave the house altogether and do something enjoyable without you. That is a form of punishing you. He will make sure that you realize you've done something wrong. When someone is as passionate about his rules as he is, you will begin to believe that he's right. It's important that you don't slip into his way of thinking. If he wants to pout and ignore you when you don't do what he wants, let him. Do not let him punish you. Just go about your day as if he's not upset. Another adult who makes you feel bad and tries to punish you in some way is manipulating you. These are all signs of what a woman who has gone through, but there is an answer and that's in How to Deal with a Controlling Person, by Terence A. Williams. Grab your copy today.
If at the end of its quest, a philosophy denies reality, it is deluded. If it denies knowledge, it has lost its claim to instruct. If it denies morality, it is merely decadence trying to find respectability. If it denies God, it is simply and profoundly uninformed. Millions have left the Christian faith without ever having heard its true message. Millions more have never been exposed to the philosophical beauty of Christian Idealism. I challenge you, dear reader, to consider the ideas put forward in this philosophical tract. The heresy of materialism has risen to dominate the world. Everyone seems to sense that something is terribly wrong with the course of civilization but few understand exactly what it is that is destroying society. Materialism, philosophic materialism, is the problem.

The author commences: "I am a Catholic. I accept the divine authority of the Catholic Church to interpret the meaning of human life, and in this interpretation I have gradually found a Catholic Ideal. I was not born into this system, I deliberately adopted it. I was born into that variegated and shifting mass of opinion, external to the Church, which leans more or less on individual private judgment as an habitual court of appeal in matters of faith and morals." And consider this later on: "If God be the Author and Sustainer of the material universe and civil society, and if man, sensible of his own frailty, ambitious for his own perfection, and anxious as to a future state, wills to communicate with his Creator, what hope has he of any possible intercourse between God and man? To deny the religious aspirations of the human race would be to deny ourselves; but it will be objected that man's hunger for righteousness is no guarantee of its supreme embodiment in a personal God. United with this aspiration, however, stands the conviction of the intellect that some intelligent First Cause must be predicated for the universe, and the judgment of the moral sense which claims divine beneficence for a final restitution of all things. To deny a First Cause is to dethrone the only Sovereign Good able to fill the human heart, the only tribunal before which man can arraign his secret soul, setting up instead the fool's fetish of cosmic anarchy, which gives no rational explanation of the universal testimony of the human race in favour of an intelligent and moral Creator." And then this: "But let us look at the great religious phenomena of the world, the ancient religions of Egypt, Assyria, Greece, Rome, India, and Western Europe. The old surviving religions, Hindu, Buddhist, Mohammedan, Confucian, or the fetish and ancestral worships of primitive tribes; do they not form a spectacle similar to the varied geology and zoology of the material world? Detached on the surface, they are united below in certain broad features. They recognise supernatural powers acting on the world, and possess traditional sacred teachings preserved by priests or sages. Such similarities point to a common origin, differentiated by the reflex action of racial and local tradition, and demonstrate the universal desire of man's heart for some form of faith and holiness."
