Morality and Law

Morality is the disciplined discernment and identification of the right from the wrong.   It is an intrinsic property of legal systems that they are also moral systems.   A law is an expression of one or more moral principles.   For the purposes of this document, the term "moral" is semantically identical to the term "ethical." and the term "morals" is semantically identical to the term "ethics." To avoid confusion, the terms "ethical" and "ethics" should not be used in instruments of state policy.
