I other words, the morality of an action is evaluated based on the adherence to the rules set in a society. Therefore, compliance to the law, regardless of the moral bearing, is the most ethical line of action (Badiou, 2011). The Kantian ethics are based on imperatives to members of the society.

All the priorities should be designed with the aim to survive in the difficult conditions. The basic human needs are the first priorities. Therefore, food, water and shelter are the highest priorities in the event of power shortage and elimination of all electrometric devices. If it is not possible to get water without usage of pumping devices then manual location of a water source is central. Water is used for cooking, hygiene purposes and, most importantly, drinking.

[...] Limit this description to 100-150 words. The government treats its citizens good in my current location, they are accorded security by frequent patrols and their freedoms of expression and involvement in the democratic process is respected. In my neighborhood, there is no ungood intrusion from the government and people are free to do whatever they please in their houses.
