As a possible alternative approach to the modern virtue ethics, kindness ethics focuses on the specific virtue of kindness, which, essentially speaking means a person’s moral capacity to be kind to life itself, not only one’s own individual life.

Kindness ethics can possibly provide the modern people a way out.
