In addressing moral problems and conflicts, another important value is honesty. Openly sharing thoughts and emotions with each other can give all parties a better understanding of the reasons behind one another’s actions. Practicing empathy—embracing those who may have different opinions or beliefs—is also critical; understanding why someone feels strongly about a particular topic allows both sides to relate to one another which could potentially lead to compromise. Inclusion will allow everyone to have a say, regardless of background and worldview. It can also help build mutual understanding when there are disagreements about morality.
Overall, incorporating these social values throughout discussions on moral conflicts provides structure for individuals engaging in these conversations, helping them reach resolution faster while still respecting all participants’ views.
