Legal/Process needs to be aligned with Ethics
In my experience legal procedures and many business activities have yet to aspire to the level of Ethics. In this day and age, everyone knows to speak to ethics, but is it really practiced by government, business, etc...? For example: What happens when acting ethically is not aligned legally? If you act with integrity but, do so "at legal liability" what is the lesson? It sends a message of act legally and in line with process even if it means compromising ethics. Acting/Doing something the right way (acting ethically) is not always the legal way. Why does this exist as a conflict? Do we compromise integrity to follow rules & laws that lack authenticity in spirit? There needs to be a cultural bridge construct to align these presently diverse concepts on the same plane.
