A ética ou a moral é constituída por um conjunto de normas através das quais cada sociedade define historicamente os comportamentos que considera bons, maus ou aceitáveis. Dos servidores públicos como dos políticos a sociedade espera que possuam virtudes cívicas. Morality or ethics is the set of norms through which societies historically define behavior that is viewed as good or bad, as acceptable or not by the community. From civil servants as from politicians it is asked that they have republican virtues. And often they do.
