Q1(b). What does ethics seek to promote in human life? Why is it all the more important in public administration? (150 words)
Ethics is often called the moral philosophy and it represents the values and customs of society. Ethics is a social creation that guides people to follow the right path and avoid the wrong ways. If all members of a society become ethical, they help each other and the society progresses, everyone would reap the benefits of development. An ethical society ensures peace, love and compassion to all its members because the personal values of the people are aligned with the social values.
Ethics is extremely important in public administration because the actions of the public servants are constantly under watch, and they are treated as role models by most citizens. If public servants are unethical, common people follow their footsteps and the society suffers. If they are ethical, they create an atmosphere of trust, justice and discipline in the society by inspiring others without the use of force or authority. Such an ethical public administration leads to development and prosperity of the nation. (163 words)
