Morality for Systems and Individuals

The high level of extra-biological force now wheided by human being requires that we re-think the foundations of morality. Moral directives, like the 10 commandments, were developed beofre extra-biological force was a prominent feature of human life. The effect of extra-biological force on the biological health of individual human lives and also on the health of planetary life overall should be the prime measure of the moral efficacy of any new system designs. Individuals are still the primary unit of life, but our collective magnification of force through extra-biological means is the most prominent feature of human life that needs to be understood in terms of its impact on self and others. The speed of Global climate change is the key factor driving the need for a shift in moral systems focus from the individual to the morality of system design that directs the application of extra-biological human forcefulness.
