Ethical Barometer

After reading this article it really puts into perspective that ethics and ethical issues can be read many different ways.  Ethics is an ever changing idea that is based off of current surroundings and conditions.  You can not compare directly what was done in the past, say the 1800's, and say it was entirely unethical based on todays standards.  For example the way in which protein was processed and produced was greatly hindered by the lack of technology in the past.  So by today's standards it may be unethical to sell the meat that was produced in a factory, but at the time it was the only way to do so.  The ethical barometer is relative term that should be relative to each situation.
