The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you. Everybody makes mistake and they try to learn and move on from them but killing someone intentionally would stick with that person forever and they would never be the same. Therefore, some people debate on whether he was completely out of place for killing Beatty or did the best thing for society. Although Montag killed Beatty, many people debate over whether it was the right thing to do or not. Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore.
Back to the concept of the coin toss-- she is technically given a chance to avoid death, but in reality her death is inevitable, as the rules of violence make her responsible for what her husband, Llewelyn Moss, did not do. This is important for the readers to consider as they forge their own morality- the readers must recognize that it is not them, but rather their circumstances that carve their own morality and ethics. From the perspective of morality, Chigurh is viewed as a ruthless, serial killer, but through the use of futile violence, it can be argued that he
When asking individuals what morality is, the answers you will receive maybe similar but will differ in relation to each individual. That is because although human beings are similar in composition we differ in many ways in terms of personality or judgment. For most, the first thing you may think of in a sense of "morality" are the codes of conduct that tie into ones ' sense of morals. In order to distinguish the definition of morality we must first declare that there are two types of morality which include descriptive morality and normative morality. In the Standford Encyclopedia of Philosophy authors Bernard and Joshua Gert express the differences in descriptive and normative morality.
Dr. James Rachels, in his article “Active and Passive Euthanasia” criticizes the AMA because he believes that passive euthanasia is just as worse as active euthanasia so you should either be for both or against both. His first argument against the AMA’s statement is that if the reason to end someone’s life is to put them out of their pain because there are not any further treatments to alleviate the pain then obviously it would be best to use the method that would end their life the fastest without causing pain. Thus, active euthanasia like a lethal injection would satisfy this reasoning much better than a passive euthanasia method such as a patient refusing treatment and suffering until they die. If you support passive euthanasia for this justification then according to this argument it would not make sense if you do not also support active euthanasia. His second argument is that he believes the AMA’s statement shows that choices in life and death situations are determined with inapplicable points.
When making decisions, there would be various examples of thought processes basing on the degree of ethical development of the individual. People who are less ethically developed may think that they should act ethically since they will be punished if they do not. Besides, people who have more progressed moral advancement may contend that they ought to act morally in light of the fact that their nation's laws say they ought to. People at the highest level of ethical development may claim that they should act ethically because it's always right to do so, regardless of what the results and costs are. In fact, there is a great amount of ethical issues commonly happening that create negative effects on the public confidence such as extortion, bribery or dishonest advertising
Francis follows this pattern, thinking that because he’d done something wrong (leaving his family), he does not deserve to go back home. He reasons that staying away would be the best, and further, the right thing to do. Francis seems to have a judgmental eye as well, determining that the person who hit his friend, Rudy, in the head should also be prosecuted. Francis delivers a blow to the man. Most likely, the blow led to the raider’s death.
I agree with the idea of assisted suicide, because if someone is suffering to the point that they can no longer care for themselves. They may feel that it is there time to go and that person should be able to make that decision. Although some believe that assisted suicide is wrong that should be left to the person that is going to die or the person
The two ethical theories that I truly understood and agreed with were Ethical Relativism and Egoism/Egotism. Ethical Relativism refers to cultural differences throughout the world regarding values. For example, in one culture society forces females to be covered from head to toe, while another culture may not have those same expectation from females. The other ethical theory that I understood is the difference between Egoism and Egotism. Egoism is the belief that motivation for people 's actions are carried out in self-interest, while Egotism means excessive conceit or self-absorption and selfishness.
Though, other people does not want that kind of consequence for their loved ones who became the victim that suffered. They think that the only way that the victim’s peace will be the death of the suspect. That scheme is called death penalty. Is it really acceptable that justice must be done in taking one’s life? For us, it must be avoided and abolish because first of all,
Ethical Dilemma The term dilemma is defined as difficult problem or choice between equally alternatives while ethic is about positive not negative values. It must be choose one of that. In the situational, ethical dilemma faced in personal and societal relationship. As Enrich notes “ethic is about how we live our lives together in public sector institutions” (5).
