Deontological and Consequential ethics consider what we ought to do.

Deontological and Consequential ethics consider what we ought to do.

Please discuss whether you feel that as of now your ethical position tends toward Deontological or Consequentialist Ethics. Remember that "Relativist Ethics," in which anything goes as long as the mass amount of people believe a value is good, is a radical extreme of Consequentialist Ethics, and one that would be rejected; just as fundamentalism, which may look to the letter rather than the spirit of the law, is rejected by Deontological Ethics. Both agree that there is a "good" which is not merely dependent on interpreting language, or even what people might see as good for themselves by whim or inclination. Relativist Ethics is merely "license" to do anything that pleases someone at the moment, and Fundamentalism is authoritarian, appealing to authority only, rather than discourse, for justifying a principle.

Demonstrate how to avoid these extremes as well in the presentation of your discussion.
