I think ethics is an academic discipline that attempts to make a code of conduct that is internally consistent. Morals are tools that one group of people try to use to justify the rules they wish to impose on a second group of people.
"The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived, and dishonest, but the myth, persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Belief in myths allows the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought."-John F. Kennedy
