- Amorality refers to moral neutrality, or having no moral implications. It is not to be confused with immorality which means the violation of morality.
- An amoral person can also mean a person without a conscience or without a moral code. Such people are rare. See Sociopath. People are sometimes wrongly accused of amorality when the accuser has a different moral code.
- Amoral people can live good, lives, as well as be beneficial to others, if they act out of enlightened self-interest. Still you can never trust amoral people because they can at any time decide it's in their interest to harm you and moral principles won't stop them.
- If amoral people do not act out of enlightened self-interest, and arbitrarily act like a jerk, amoral people become unhappy because nobody respects them. They don’t respect themselves.
