In this era, the heavy burden of civilization is a narrative about ethics problem, especially concerning issues of social community and nationality. First, on the question of social community, despite having long been presented and fought, the spirit of the implementation of social ethics in community life even more degraded and relatively remains as major issue in various epics concern. Now the application of ethics even positioned and often accused as “Against Humanity” and Utopian, considering humans nowadays positioned their self as “Reality Servants”, and ethics became a stranger in the community social life. Religion as an institution organize and direct the humanitarian Ethics to the level of Noble character and realign human actions as an attempt to humanizing, even considered as the barrier to gain profit. Religion is the opium, it is stroked, intoxicating, so it is positioned in reality.

Second, related to the nationality issue, the narrative was near with the society’s problems above, since it is clear that the core of the nationality dictum is also about domain of human identity. Especially in the governance’s zone which the collective understanding and awareness presence is necessary to build the national life without exploitation de l'homme  par l'homme. As for another heavy problem about national discourse mainly experienced by the nations of the third world countries is relatively similar, which is related to issues of law enforcement value and political traditions that are far from the spirit of humanizing, social benefit and not necessarily only aim to gain profit. The character of law enforcer and political actor that already living in hegemony and colonized by opportunist tradition, has put ethics as a snake in the grass, standing there and betrayed. Karaeng Patingalloang, intellectual and diplomat of Gowa-Tallo Kingdom said, there are five major causes of the collapse of an empire. First, when the reigning king no longer wanted to be advised or warned. Second, if the intellectuals no longer stay in the country. Third, it is there too many cases in the country. Fourth, when many judges and royal officials like venality. Fifth, when the reigning king lost the love for his people. 

Therefore, responding to the problems above, is necessary to arrange back in common ground between the social nature of community, nationality and ethics, which actually has the same spirit and purpose, namely humanizing.
