This book outlines the author's concept of ethics ("objective ethics", OE), which refers to the purpose, meaning and principles of the correctly arranged society of any intelligent beings. The book shows the relation of objective ethics to freedom; describes how ethics have emerged in human history; explains why we need it.The book demonstrates why OE is the only true ethics. Its truth (and objectivity) stems from the fact that its source is in objective reality independent of any possible moral actor. Objective ethics is the basis of the public sphere of society, i.e. the basis for actions of and relations between any intelligent beings not connected personally. It has nothing to do with religion, traditions or science. The foundations of OE are purely metaphysical although its practical norms are found and formed through a trusted fair contract between free moral actors. However, OE is not based on the contract. Rather it is the contract that based on this ethics. Universal common ground for consensus is freedom, and in order to achieve it OE demands the elimination of all forms of violence, coercion, oppression, influence and the like that may violate free expression of the will. Therefore OE leads (and has led earlier) humanity to a free and just society that is a moral alternative to the modern oppressive order. OE brings no practical benefits, goods or utility, and its ultimate goal is absolute freedom even if it is unreachable. OE helps find the objective truth and distinguish the objectively good from the objectively bad in everyday life.
