Normative morality definition

1. Striving to eliminate suffering without causing permanent stupefaction
2. A way of thinking and conduct resulting from understanding of suffering caused by necessity and the pursuit of its elimination

This definition does not include any action, effort, behavior or striving, resulting in other positive effect, which does not contribute to suffering reduction. Suffering is the most serious and the most common problem that exists, and morality is too essential term to extend its definition to the other manifestations of goodwill and thereby to blur it. The one who does not contribute to solving the most serious and the most common problem that exists is not entitled to call himself moral according to my definition.

Morality redefinition necessity is explained in Morality redefinition post.
