Define the term ethics. Explain how a certain behavior could be legal but not ethical.

Ethics are moral principles that define the behavior of a group of people. Many things in life are legal to do, but are not morally correct. For example, it is not illegal to kill enemies at war, but depending on the situation it could be immoral. Or, if your son asks you for a hug it is not illegal if you do not hug him. However, he just wants attention and it would be immoral.
