According to me I totally agree with this statement that food comes first and ethics later.

Its because food becomes the primary need of each and every human being today.

If there is food then ethic comes and if there is no food then there are no ethics.

In my opinion food comes first and ethics later because in today's life there are three basic amenities required for survival of any person and these are food, cloth and shelter. Out of these three food is most important one. When it comes for food then no one see any ethics there because ethics is related to individual behaviour. If any have everything in his life(money) then they follow their ethics then they thinks about their behaviour and change the way of living and do everything which comes in their etics.

Hi buddies.

Stomach think and stomach speak when it is empty I don't think any ethics will come there. I concur that food, clothes and shelter are the basis necessity to live our life when the person don't possess all this things then he won't care about ethics at all. Learning ethics will consider only and only after we have enough food to satisfy our stomach. With empty stomach you will never think about anything else you will be just emphasizing where will you get the food from. Just whenever you come across some beggar ask him do he care about ethics never because beggar never speak, always you will find that his stomach is speaking. Not most I think almost first everything we do in life is to have sufficient food in our life then only we will think about other comfort and then ethics. So my conclusion is that food comes first then ethics and all that.

Ethics are the moral values which are being taught since childhood. Ethics does play important role but in real life it is hardly followed by some individual. Ethics are calculated within ourselves then also we do wrong thing like we are aware of the traffic rules but then also some breaks, we are aware that robbery is wrong deed but then also we do some by habit and some by need. In this world first come is always served first. But a person who do not possess to have food two times what he will do with ethics.

Hii friends.

According to my opinion foods comes first then Ethics. Because food is the basic need of a human being. If we don't follow the ethics then we can live longer but if we don't take food then we can't live more than 15 days.

We can see the effect of Food on people who lives in slum areas and who has not sufficient money to fill their stomach twice a day.

These people don't think that we are bothering something they start to walk in wrong ways like to murder someone.

It all happens to fulfill their stomach or to get money.

So we can say that a person doesn't think about ethics when he is hungry.

Well my dear friends,

According to me food comes first. If you are hungry you won't have the power to think what is ethical and what is not. We always see peoples committing crimes, like murdering someone, or looting and we say that those peoples do not posses any ethics. Same time we some time blame prostitutes of making money out of selling their body.

But we should think why is he/she doing that. No one want to be criminal. Actually poverty make them. When call comes from our stomach we forget every thing.

So I want to say ethics are important but not more than food.

Nothing is good or bad on this earth. But the thinking makes so. Food, water and shelter are the bare minimum requirements for any human beings on this earth. Ethics are only for good people and that is something Kinda an inborn quality and about the bad guys it is simple non existent. But to live in this highly civilized world.

We do require ethics. I suppose, you all will agree the point that ethics can only be followed when one is alive. And the later is only possible if one is able to satisfy his basic necessity of food and water. So, practically. The statement 'Food Comes First, Ethics Later' holds true. But, as I earlier told it is debatable considering the type of person.

Obviously Food comes first. Ethics are the moral principles which control or influence individuals behavior. All these moral principles were formed gradually to give directions to society, for well-being of society.

Think of first person who came on this planet, first thing he would have search for is food, he had not mind killing animal for food. After that he thought of anything else ex. Forming society and rules etc. If there is no society there will not be any ethics and society first need to feed its people first.

Likewise if government is not able to feed its people, people will obviously go violent.

Criminals mostly are the people who had suffered with poverty, helplessness and could not bear the injustice done by government to them.

Of course both food and ethics are very very crucial for a healthy society. But if the question is 'WHAT COMES FIRST?', I would just request you to conduct a small social experiment.

Look at that young girl who looks malnourished because she has never had enough to fill her stomach. Her skin is burnt and her feet bruised because she has been begging all day with her younger brother in her arms at the traffic signal you cross everyday. Look at her in the eye and ask her if she cares more about her daddy's work ethics or about the food he manages to bring home that is barely enough for them to survive.

I won't answer this question. Let her do it.

In my opinion food comes and will comes first than ethics. When you don't have the source of survival that is food you would not go for maintaining or system your own status for better, good or kind appearance.

For example in the starting of civilization man's character were surviving for food type but as the civilization developed then the so called religion, government, system comes into the picture.

Thus food comes first and ethics later, but nowadays it also depends upon the individuals as all of you said.

Food or ethics? If you ask this anyone will say definitely food is necessary for survival but then for being able to be called a human being ethics are as important It would be foolish to ask a man dying of starvation to satisfy his hunger by the values and ethics but at the same time we can't rob someone to meet our needs. There is a certain means to fill our bellies and that's what ethics tell us. If only food was important then why spend so much precious time and money teaching children the way of living life in society. A man devoid of ethics would be no different from animals I guess.

I want to say that Food comes first as compared to ethic because food is the survival human being if they do not eat food they will not survive, if they do not survive then ethic has no meaning.

For ex :- A beggar who have not enough money to eat food, he only pray the god to give me food to survive my life.

Ethic :- Ethic is for rich people who have some rule and regulation in his life. They enough food to survive his life.

IF THERE IS FOOD THEN ETHIC COMES, AND THERE IS NO FOOD THEN THERE IS NO ETHIC.

Good day pals, 'Food and Ethics which is more important', food I think. Well, thank God for freedom of expression and for this forum, I get to say my mind. Ethics are the principles of an individual which makes him/her what he is, while food is any substance which sustains and helps such individual stay alive & in good health to maintain his principles. "A hungry man is an angry (unprincipled in some situations) man" they say, but that doesn't mean that we should live to eat instead of eating to live. Anyways, the importance of both ( ethics and food) should not be overemphasized, for "what is life without a tiny bit of self respect or acknowledgment (mad), & what is self respect or principles without life or good health (?). In conclussion I'd say " give enough food to 100 armed robbers and I bet you, 50% of them are more ethical and would stick to doing an honest man's job". Thanks for reading.

We can't imagine ethics when we have no food to eat. In this globalized era, everyone want to survive and explore more and for this the basic entitlement is food, clothes and shelter.

Now, after fulfilling the basic needs we should think about ethics because man is a social animal and we belongs to the most intelligent entity of the world who are not only exist but proving that they are the best and it is only possible through coordination and cooperation between them.

This is purely a situation and people based discussion. Some of us learned it from childhood do forget our life for ethics. You can do an experiment yourself to know which is important. Be starved for one day and than ask the question to yourself.

So the people who lives on footpath, never try to teach them ethics. Give them food because if not given whom you will teach ethics if they would not survive of hunger.

Well Food & Ethics are 2 very different aspects of human life. Who says that by doing ethical things you won't get food in life. Ethics are the principles of individuals it inherits inside the person. A wise & ethical person will not go on wrong path like killing or stealing for the sake of food. So it all depends on individual's personality and how he is brought up. If you consider the case of criminals & terrorists they have adequate money to survive for entire life but they still continue on that unethical path as for them ethics don't exist. In short I would like to sum it up that Food & ethics are both important of life and which to choose between them all depends on an individual.

Both are on opposite side, but if we consider today's world, then we will realise that food comes first then ethics. It is because of corruption increases which automatically leads to increase in the inflation which directly affect the day-to-day life of a middle class society, who lives with minimum salary but with high expenses. So, if he thinks about ethics, then he will not able to fulfill the foody needs of his family or vice- versa. However, a rich or poor person has full of ethics in their lives, but if they will make starve for one day, then they will realise the importance of food.

With good suit I walk around a begger what is in my mind about the begger anybody can know this. See he is begging for food. And with this mind having no respect on human I give the speech of ethics and morality.

Food to hungry begger may come first priority but what if the same food is asked by little hungry kid?The hungry begger can't stand giving the food to the kid its the ethics.

In my opinion I think that food and ethics both are important at their places.

Food is the daily need of people. But in todays era of corruption if someone is honest and earns his daily earning legally then he or she is considered mad in our society.

So its like if someone even tries to be ethical then the society does not encourage that.

And in my opinion this may be one of the reason that why our country is still underdeveloped.

Though food is important but that doesnt mean that we should acquire unethical methods to earn money and food.

Think if out of every 100 even 50 try to be ethical in life then our country can become a developed nation!

I agree for most of people food comes first. Food is nothing but a mans basic need it can be related to money. People go to any extent to get money. People cheat others so that they get some money, people pay bribe so that they get their work done, People murder, kidnap innocent people just for sake of Money (food).

Ethics is given least importance. There are people who try hard not to cheat anyone who want to do things morally right people around won't let that happen how much ever he tries to be ethical there are people who are always going to lead us into doing something against ethics somewhere or other. Hence its difficult for people to stick to ethics.

Yes, I do agree that for many a people Food is the priority over ethics.
Everybody wants to be honest in whatever field they go; but as the time passes by, there are a very few people left with the same ethics they had when they entered in that field.
That is because the strive to fulfill their hunger makes them to do so, and some people are just great trend follower.
for example- If a traffic constable challans a car for violating the traffic rules with proper receipt and amount, that amount will directly go to the govt. But instead, they take bribe any amount lesser than the original amount to fulfill their needs , although its unethical. And people support them equally to avoid rushing to courts.
So, somewhere their hunger is all unethical and above their ethics.

P.S- No offence. There obviously are some respectable people to whom their ethics matter a lot more than their hunger. RESPECT for them.

First of all I will be very thankful to whome give me a chance to present some view about the topics of food comes first, ethis later. So according to I think both things is imprtant in our life. And I think we should take both things at a time. And we can do it. And also we should coperate in some situation. If we are rich so there are no problem to take both things at a time, if we are not rich so by cooperating and managing we can take both things. Like if we have 100 rs for food. But in 60 rs we can take normal food so rest 40 rs rupees we shoud spend in ethics. Because God has given a imprtant time to do some good work. We should spend our life in good work because there are time for everybody.

Then you should not opt for a way to get a delicious food in an unethical way. If you dnt have even 10rs then you should beg for it as beggers do because beggin is not unethical.

There will never be a situation where you have to be unethical for getting the food. Our society is framed in such a manner.

As ethics says the person who is having anything which is more than enough should distribute that to everyone who all longing for that. If we follow this ethics there won't be any problem for food.

But before achieve that state of having enough thing, one's first preference will be to the food. This situation occurs only because of unethical hoardings.

So to me both food and ethics are important and both are inter related things. The preference given is purely depend on the People's status and character.

If you take a thief an beggar, their first preference is only to FOOD. For beggar, his second preference is ethics, so he is not a thief.

Wen we talk of living a normal life in a civil society the importance of ethics and food cannot be compared. You cannot survive in a social environment without following a common set of ethical rules. I do agree with that. but here, as per the topic, when it comes to comparing the importance of food and ethics on a basic level, you have to have food as more important necessity. Ethics are important, but then it is confined to the ideal situation when you are leading a normal life in a civil society. You cannot keep on clinging to the ethical rules when all you need to survive is food, even if it comes by unethical ways. To sum up, I will say that, it is all about the priority. Unless you are in the situation when you have to choose between the two, you prefer ethics, but when it comes to the question of survival, you will obviously go for food..!!

I am very thankful to the service provider to giving a chance to me to deliever my view about food comes first, etics later. I am supportive to food but not against ethics. Ethics plays an important role in shaping attitude of people. Nowadays it is very important in everyones life as they have to bear too much stres in the life. So they must frame rules and regulations based on their life how to tackle every problem. And to think and be in healthy condition one has to eat healthy. It can't be ruled out that one can think better, positive by having proper diet. But in limited manner. Having diet beyond the use results in strangulation of our body by laziness.

It's difficult to choose between two fare things but I will support ethics. Ethics always says that we should distribute food equally amongst the society and should do the proper managment of it. Augmented with it, it says it should not be bring to home with improper ways so that it unbalances the society and will creat difficulties in future life. Some my colleagus said that, you will understand the hunger when you will starve for day but I want to clarify that even beggar earn his money with ethicsecome the he never try to steal things and so maintain the balance in society.

In my view, no doubt, food is the basic necessity of life. But in some circumstances or in some relationship, ethics comes first. Take example of a poor family who consist of a mother and her small child. They both are hungry. But they have the meal for a single person only. Now what will the mother do? she will give this food to his child first. And in my view, ethics is the only thing that make different one person from another. And specially now-a-days, when everyone want to rise. And you will get this opportunity if you have ethics. This does not mean, I am against food. But we cannot rate among them if both are present simultaneously in a circumstance. In a situation, where a person has to choose between food and ethics, it depends on his personality, his mindset and his priorities.

The way we think, the same way we present ourself. If gandhiji had not given importance to ethics, we might not have got freedom. It's all depends upon the circumstances prevailing in our life. No doubt food comes first, but to lead a meaningful and respectful life ethics are also important. They must go hand in hand. If a human is made to starve for a day, obiouslly he comes to the importance of food. And due to the high moral values of our great leaders, India has gots its freedom.

We are discussing about what we will opt when comes to food or ethics, if we give priority to food that means we may compromise with our principles that may led to become habitual of opting things on the basis of only fullfilling our requrements and inshort, gradually it may total degradation of the humanity. I think we are discussing it so that we can apply it on our real time scenario otherwise our view will be futile so I want to suggest people to think twice that where are you getting your food if it will unethical then I know most of us will choose to be hungry. In our real time scenario food willl be easily avalable to at least survive but whena comes to ethical issue I think it is our assets which we are continously collecting through our whole life journey and believe me it really MATTERS, so never compromise.

yes i agree with all but food come first because it the basic requirement of the human being but is ethics is secondary thing in the life of human being ,it is also necessary in the today's world for com-petting with other's.SO,the conclusion is based that food is primary necessary of any human being to live and ethics is the secondary item to earn the money and get food for the family,cliges etc

I agree with you Nandana. A Person who is very rich but without any ethical values, He is never recognized or respected. A person is recognized with his ethics. Just consider in the world, we Indians are popular for our ethical values n culture, more than anything else. Ethics add value to anything, be it a person or a country.

All the person who are in the side of food, I would like to make you remember, that all the alive being instead human, he lives for other need, and without this philosophy, there is no existence of life and society. Food is necessary but we can never survive without ethics, eg. terrorism is not a concrete problem, it is a thought, we can't solve it by capital punishment.

Hi, friends it is not very easy to say weather food comes first or ethics. Sometimes such a situation arises in front of us that we can not give up our ethics for the sake of our belly. We commonly hear that leaders are starving for the demand to be fulfilled, why they do so, there is no personal cause only for the betterment of society. So, in this case we can say ethics first, food later.

Hi, no doubt food is the basic need for survival. But to live a respectful life ethics are must.. food and ethics must go hand in hand for leading a good life.
Though importance of food is more but then you cann't even ignore the ethics. Rest all depends upon the person thinking..

As we all are aware about the fact that food is the basic source of energy in life, without having food, we can not respond to the things in are practical and stressful life, ethics have their importance after food.. as with food only we get the power to perform any task in life....

Friends, we cannot say which is important because the priority given to ethics or food declares the personality of a human being.

A person who gives importance to ethics not for food becomes great person eg: gandhiji, harichandra etc., if gandhiji had gave importance to food he did not becomes a leader he simply become a lawyer and does his practice. similarly if Satya Harichandra does not given importance to ethics he did not become poor.

The people who gives importance to ethics when they are happy and gives importance to food when they are in need becomes a common man or ordinary man.

The people who gives importance to food not for the ethics becomes thieves and creates problem to the society .

Hi,Yes both are necessary but not at cost of others life. I agree with shiv that there are naxals who do this same thing. Even other internal terrorist groups who kills others only to serve themselves. This is not done we cannot have food by Hook or crook. The main reason behind it is poverty so, what I feel that government should take corrective measures against them.

Hi ,i believe both are necessary at their places as you can't eat your ethics and vice versa e.g a beggar who want food for his survival cant think of ethics and stop begging just because his ethics don't allow this as no one become beggar from his own choice likewise for a respectful living in society you put your ethics first to have food and other basic necessities.

For sure food come first of all ethics. All creatures are engineered to do almost for survival. People does not hesitate to sell off their own kids for food. So it is unwise to say that ethics come first. There may be few who give priority to ethics than food. Anyway this universe is full of exceptional cases. But here we are discussing about normal peoples. Miss Neha have a very good point but a person can be a patriotic only and only when he is well fed and well educated . For a poor person there is no differance. Naxals are the best examples of this fact. They doesn't bother to kill their own countrymen just for money only. Do you think that naxalism is a war of idealogy? It is just a war of hunger. They poor people even doesn't know what is naxalism is all about. They are simple being targeted by neibour countries, who wants to encash this food fact for distablising india.

I support the fact that Food comes first. Food, clothing and shelter are the basic requirements of a human being. Even gandhiji once mentioned the fact that for the poor, one who gives meal is seen as god.

However rich a person might be, however full be he with his ethics, if we just make him starve for just a single day, he 'll understand the importance of food.
