The corportation has a duty to be accountable for their actions and how they affect their customers. Under the stakeholders approach they should have evalutated their decisions not to fix the axle problem and the effects it woud have it left unfixed. Since they knew the axle was a problem the negliget their customers. Furthermore, under the corportate citizen approach the corportation should have used their wealth and power to benefit society, not harm it. The least they could do after causing damages would be to compensate for
He needed to get them to refuse to be a dog to the British and get the freedom they deserve. He used pathos as a persuasive technique in his speech to highlight fear and emotion to scare the colonists into agreeing with him. “I know of how way of judging the future but by the past.” (Henry 110) This was an effective quote because it is showing no matter what Henry is there with the colonist through this journey and that he cannot tell them exactly what is going to happen, but he can make a presumption based on what has already happened. He also uses ethos as a major component to his speech, this has to do with a lot of a trust. “For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst and provide it.” (Henry 110) This is effective because no matter what he will be right by the colonist the entire time, he will not go and try to hide behind and push them off.
And yet, the science and reason that brought us this invention are not enough to force humanity to accept it in all facets of life. Something potentially responsible for this phenomenon is the Backfire Effect. David McRaney describes the Backfire Effect with great accuracy in his article “The Backfire Effect”: “coming or going, you stick to your beliefs instead of questioning them. When someone tries to correct you, tries to dilute your misconceptions, it backfires and strengthens them instead” (1). This unbreakable resolve for maintaining beliefs in contradiction to logic prevents us from seeing truth effectively.
I think that restorative justice needs to be used correctly because if it is not done right it could actually cause more harm. I think that it could cause harm because if someone uses the circle method and the offender doesn’t think they did anything
A murder or a rapist causes a direct harm to an individual and could possibly incite an omnipresent sense of fear within a community, so from a utilitarian standpoint it is clear that these actions should be deemed morally impermissible. However, Devlin and his beliefs on human action fall short in situations in which a person’s behavior causes no harm. From a utilitarian standpoint no individual’s happiness is diminished and the potential for a society’s moral principles to crumble based off of this one action is unjustified. It is also presumptuous to assume that the behavior of one individual will eventually influence others. This concern of widespread adoption is simply one of an infinite number of realities that may develop for this society.
First of all, King believes that one has the moral responsibility to defy laws that are unjust. He believe that if we continue to follow the rule that unjust things will continue to occur. The only way to stop this unjust things is to disobey the laws that are unjust. King also believes that an unjust law is not a law. Therefore, he believed that if a law was unjust that it would not be a law therefore you can disobey it but must be ready to accept anything that follow.
The story “The cost of survival” states that “It is easy to argue that people should be stopped from putting themselves in danger. However, this would be impossible to enforce”. It is impossible to stop somebody from doing these risky things but you can’t stop them from doing the things that they enjoy and make them happy. The story also says that “ We know that when people believe that they are going to receive a large bill for SAR mission, they delay a call for help or they refuse to to call for help.”. It would be unfair that someone wouldn't call for help because they are going to be billed for getting help.
Also, people shouldn’t take things for granted and know their actions will have consequences. The way F. Scott Fitzgerald uses the green light and Dr. T.J. Eckleburg’s eyes in The Great Gatsby helps the themes of hope and morality become understandable. Like Jim Yong Kim said “Hope is a moral choice,” and if individuals grow up with being taught to be hopeful, they might not be driven for success because they are just waiting around hoping on their own behalf. People need to start realizing their actions have fateable outcomes. Otherwise, all they have unfulfilled hopes and
It’s not that they are deceptive, but their dilemmas affect their decision to be honest. No matter what the reason for stealing others’ idea is, it is still unacceptable. Thence, UT Arlington should be upheld the Honor Code seriously, and make students face the consequences of their own actions. Honor code is an honor system; therefore, its benefits will vanquish any
According to Janis (1972), the illusion of invulnerability is the group mentality that a certain decision cannot be wrong. This illusion makes the members of the faction neglect the obvious dangers of their decision due to having excess optimism and confidence in their ability (Janis, 1972). To prevent this symptom, it is important for the group to involve experts who can evaluate the risks of its bad decisions and assist it in making more informed verdicts. 2. According to Janis (1972), the group may be inclined to believe in the morality of their group and make them ignore the moral and ethical consequences of the decisions they make.
