“Favoritism”, “Cronyism”, and “Nepotism” are barriers to the culture of human rights cultivation

In every society, ethical issues and ethical decision-making are among major shared concerns. One of the most basic themes in ethics is fairness. From the fairness and justice approach, philosopher Aristotle says, "Equals should be treated equally and unequals unequally.

Accordingly, “Favoritism” (discrimination), “Cronyism” (favoring close friends), and “Nepotism” (favoring family members) all interfere with fairness and justice. These practices offer favor and special treatment to a person or a group not on merit-based qualifications but rather because of friendship, political connection, family and kinship relations, personal likes and other links. Competence, equal considerations, and vocational merits are completely disregarded when these practices are carried out.

The common good notion (certain general conditions that are equally to everyone's advantage) and appeals to the culture of human rights cultivation urge us to consider “favoritism”, “cronyism”, and “nepotism” unethical, unfair, and unprofessional practices that present unjustified special and preferential treatment.

For the culture of human rights being genuinely cultivated, these following characteristics need to be merited: professionalism, competence, accountability, integrity, honesty, transparency, respect, fairness, and responsibility.

Should place the abolition of the 'family honor' concept in islamic societies at the top of the list of 'cultural evolution' that could lead to the acceptance of a set of values known as the 'human rights.'  As long as muslims believe that the vaginas of their female family members is their 'honor' to the point of killing women who use their bodies [including their vaginas] however they please, the human rights won't be of any meaning to them.    I found out a few months ago that there are 'virginity clinics' in muslim nations where a family takes a soon to be married female to be certified as a virgin!!!
