This latest lecture by Rabbi Elyahu Kin is part of the series on Morality and Bio-Ethics. In this lecture Rabbi Kin discusses the need for a hierarchical order in any system of ethics to avoid conflicts. The famous Nuremberg trial is brought into focus to compare how the excuse "I was only following orders" was rejected then, as opposed to the trial after WWI when it was accepted.
