How to make choice between conscience and rule?
What is conscience and rules? Conscience is an aptitude, faculty, intuition or judgment that assists in distinguishing right from wrong, also, it’s moral judgment may derive from values or norms (principles and rules). Rule is easy. Rule and ruling usually refers to standards for activities. Even we can say every day we followed, is rule. Then, we know what is conscience and rule. But, how to make choice between conscience and rule is a problem.
For example. If someone doesn’t have any medical certificate and money. Even, he doesn’t have ID, even he is homeless. Then, he is sick and he is in the hospital. Should those doctor and nurse help him? Other example. If Tom kills a guy. But the guy is murderer for kill Tom’s parents. Should Tom in the prison?
So, if we choose the conscience. The homeless will get help and Tom does not in the prison. They both keep their life. But, it obey the rule. And it will make a lot of things unordered. Because it broke the effect of rule. And people will do the wrong thing by the right reason, and no guilty under conscience. But, if we choose the rule. The homeless will die by sick and Tom will in the prison because the homicide. They both get bad end. And, it obey the conscience also we can say it obey our moral principles. It, also will make people rebellion or hold a parade to change rule’s end. Even it will let people overthrow the rule. So, whether we choose the conscience or rule, it both create a lot of problem.
I said so much word, no one could measure the answer. And, there is not real answer for this question : how to make choice between conscience and rule. Also, if I keep say anything about the answer, only could let me deviate what I start. We know conscience and rule are interaction. Whether we choose conscience or rule, both can not get perfect end. Because nothing is perfect in this world, right? Then, if we really need answer, the answer is ourselves. Our opinion define which one we choose, Conscience or rule.
