The Security Ethic is the default system for the organism when all else fails. It was useful for our ancestors when temporarily facing predators or other dangers. However, it is not the best long-term orientation for moral functioning because of its self-centered nature. It is an ego-centered morality, rooted in instinctive survival.
When people are fearful for their own safety or their self-beliefs, they are less responsive to helping others and more focused on self-preservation e.
