A lot of people criticize Utilitarianism because it cannot put value on all things, and measuring certain things are extraordinarily difficult. I then propose, that we add virtue ethics, putting an infinite value on human dignity, freedom, and valuable characteristics (allowing them to overcome any amount of financial gain), in addition to the vague "happiness" that is harder to measure. With both of these moral systems combined, I argue that the most moral actions can be concluded.
Utilitarianism: the idea that the greater the happiness (and minimalizing the amount of harm), the more moral the action is
Virtue ethics: the idea that some things must always be done and achieved through.
