There is only one way to develop a Code of Ethics.
- Understand what makes the group a group,
- determine the shared values of all members of the group, and
- make believable to the group that only consensus will make a Code of Ethics a viable statement.
Once a statement has been prepared it must be affirmed and confirmed by all members of the group.
Anything less than this will render any document passed off as a Code of Ethics will be given token acceptance at best or cynical derision at worst.
