According to me. Yes, food comes first ethics later because we cannot survive without food. Where ethics are the moral principles that govern a person's behaviour or the conducting of an activity. Ethics can be follow only when people are not empty stomach.

Is it true "Food Comes First, Ethics Later"?

The above statement is TRUE if our society follows the rule of Survival of Fittest which is also known as the rule of Jungle. In Jungle animals only think about their hunger, in some instances, they will be ready to eat their own kin. There is no concept of ethics in Jungle.

Surely, I can say that being human beings we are following the rule of Jungle. We are thinking about trees, by saying a slogan called "Save Trees". It doesn't mean your literally saving trees for the purpose of Future Generations what does it mean we have outgone our hunger and we are thinking about our future generation which I call it has to be a human being we have some ethics built in our brain from the day we entered into this world.

In my opinion, In the Modern world, the above statement has a little bit of relevance.

Hi friends, I think food comes first, Ethics later because we can't live without food. In our society, some people are very poor and hungry they always use unethical way to get food, they can't think what's wrong and whats true. You know that when we need some food and it doesn't get any one that time we use some unethical way.

I agree food and ethics are two side of one coin but it depends on situation when we survive in good condition and we do not have food so that's time we always follow first ethics and later food. Ethics are base of our human being we can't live happily and peacefully without ethics.

Thanks.

As, I believe food comes first why I m giving reasons to support my statement if we consider Maslow need hierarchy theory of motivation then we can see that in first stage i.e, physiological need which comprises of food, cloth, shelter because an empty stomach cannot consider for ethics so I believe food comes first ethics later.

Definitely it is food that comes first. I came across an incident while I was watching discovery. There was a family who had been trapped in between the icebergs. Cause of the low temperature in that region all the family members had died except the two sisters. They were really starving at that point but nothing was available for them to eat. Suddenly one of the sisters cut the mother's body and started eating it. This was definitely unethical. But we all must be aware of the phrase 'survival of the fittest'. This exampe truely proves that life is the first priority for which a person can always become unethical.

It could be right as well as wrong in some or the other way as if a situation comes infront of you to choose one of them between food and ethics in that case. I am shure that you would be selecting ethics but if the same situation comes infront of a poor or a hungry person he/she may be some of them will be selecting ''ethics'' but most of them would be selecting ''food'' as for them the first need to stay alive is food. As ethics may be followed their whole life but if they will be dying without food then at that time no ethics will workout there for them. So, this statement may be good or bad in some or the other way.

My opinion is food and ethics can exist parallel because with the help of good ethics you can be able to arrange food for you. But the only ethic is not enough, For food, you have to work. By giving the priority to the food you can not live a good life. Ethics makes us great in our society. We are human so we should not behave like an animal. For us, food and ethics have the same importance in our life.

Ethics comes first then food.

I accept the fact that food is the basic necessity, but prima facie we should not ignore that flouting laws in the name of the food is unacceptable. Sometimes bijou theivery can lead to crimes like murders.

I accept the fact that having the burden of feeding full family leads to such activities but the taste of that recipe will force him again to do that. Scrutinizing the content POVERTY and UNEMPLOYMENT are the as the main culprits.

In confronting from poverty and unemployment effectual government is needed. Various welfare schemes aiding poorers, providing employment to at least 1 member in each house. This modus operandi can opt, a force of government can be made to implement such schemes and Ethics can be followed despite earning food with hard work.

Hello everyone, Today We here discuss on the topic food is more important than ethics.

Yes, food is important for everyone at least twice in a day, it will give energy, surviving for a long life. But, if anyone gets food by doing wrong activities like robbery, killing someone for few money, doing wrong things by orders from the other person and many more such activities than it will be wrong. Everyone needs such basic thing but you can't do these activities because this is not a permanent solution. Do such things which involves your hard work and follow ethics. And the day comes you will easily fulfil your basic need easily.
