I would not have taken Shelly gambling, nor encouraged it. Instead, I would have attempted to work with Shelly on other facets of his life that were problematic and his destructive desire to gamble. If he chose to refuse treatment, then there would be nothing more I could do. The descriptive term to encapsulate my feeling about the justifications of Marshall is “disappointment.” Marshall is a selfish man who lost sight of the ethical principles that he held in such high regard; each of his actions can be tied to a self-serving foundation. In the case of Macondo, I would not have had lunch, nor accepted the watch or a business deal.
The SEC was proactive in the sense that it allows for tips to be sent in, but they did not take fully investigate the tips sent in. One could argue that there was no point in the whistleblowing system if one is not going to investigate the tips sent in. Another thing to note is the psychological effects of being a whistleblower on Harry Markopolos. In order for a whistleblowing system to be effective, the system should contain anonymity, the possibility of reporting to an independent party, provide any means to make the report, and a follow-up. The SEC failed in the follow-up.
He refers to recreational drug use as activities done for the sake of pleasure therefore medically unnecessary and morally wrong because it prevents humans from fulfilling their primary destiny. The primary function of humans he argues is to reason in order to make moral decisions and lead a good moral life. According to Timothy Hsiao, the recreational drug use prevents humans from fulfilling their primary function to reason and make genuinely free choices without being under the influence. He maintains that drugs both produce short term and long term adverse effects on cognitive abilities. Hsiao permits an exception to use of drugs for medical purposes.
Moreover, when intention is to profit, people become means and not the ends. Kant expressed that people should always be treated as ends and not only means (Munson, 2012). The practice of using humans as tools, seemingly, is a dehumanizing practice and in itself harmful. Accordingly, the intentions reinforcing the guidelines and practices of the pharmaceutical industry undermine the principle of
Introduction Dr. Gress’s view that the results of a genetic test should be withheld from patients if they are positive is paternalistic, immoral, and does not consider the autonomy of the individual. He holds the position that notifying patients of their genetic status is too harmful and that it is a doctor’s duty to withhold information that could be devastating; however, in doing so, he violates many ethical principles that doctors should exercise. This paper will give an overview on the topic of genetic testing and the ethical and moral problems associated with it, an analysis rejecting Dr. Gress’s view, and a response to an objection to the thesis of which this paper is based on. Presentation of Topic Medical professionals have been
This is not accurate because it is not one product that is causing these health problems such as diabetes and obesity. Getting rid of just soda will not take away health issues. The soda ban is a bad idea because it limits people's opinions. ¨Ban the Ban!¨ the opinion piece by SidneyAnne Stone quotes, ¨When you take away my option to order a soda a certain size, you have now removed my opinions.¨(Stone pg. 288).
They did not ask for these things, but they did not have much of a choice. Not living at the time, we cannot prove or disprove whether the Europeans, at the core, really wanted to conquer the New Worlds, or whether that thought developed over time. Based off of John Locke’s and Thomas Hobbes’ theories , does that make the Europeans of the 15-17th century naturally evil? Does that make us naturally evil, since those are our ancestors? Or does that make us naturally good, since we have learned from their mistakes?
However, Corsaro wasn 't interested in turning his results into quantitative data. As quantitative data would not be robust enough to explain complex issues. for e.g. Quantitative data would not allow children to explain their choices. However, qualitative data has some disadvantages in this research.
I also didn’t see Aristotle provide examples of what a coward, courageous, or reckless person may resemblance to. As for someone who is reckless might actually provide happiness or security for some people in different communities and achieve the goals of what they all wanted. Overall, Aristotle is not a relativistic person as he didn’t think of how it might compare to a relative person. I think this has to do with the fact that he is a victorian morality and didn’t really get to experience situations
Consequently, the owner has limited legal powers towards the third party. Only in a situation where the third party knew or should have known that the contract in question is violated, the inventor may have remedies towards the third person, but this is merely an exception than a general rule. Efficient trade secret laws could actually lead to greater knowledge diffusion. The optimal law protecting trade secrets, should result in the allocation of the information to more people, which could lead to more innovation and an increase in human capital, by minimizing the risk of distribution to competitors. Without effective trade secret protection by law, the protective measures taken by the companies having
. In my opinion all this business ideas are examples of ethical egoism, the group is so focused in getting money in a short amount of time, that they don 't care the harm they might cause to others by doing so. They are pursuing their interest disregarding the consequences for others . In the case of the synthetic cannabinoids, there was severe side effects that the product could cause to their customers, since there was no way to test it, it would not be save to offer a product that might harm people, beside the legal consequences of doing so. This reflect an ethical egoism since they are only acting from a self interest perspective.
Henry Burton and Olivia Holden refuse to let the Stantons use incriminating information about Picker because it would be immoral and Picker seemed to be not in the race for the fame. However, while Picker’s actions seemed anti-political since he openly discussed issues with Stanton without trying to best him, in reality he was in the race for less moral reasons than Stanton. It is no wonder that the interaction with the political party is negative due to the elitism found in the
However, this line of analysis would lead to justiciability problems, because the loss of faith argument could also extend to those who have not even been victim to the data breach. For example, when online shopping technologies first entered the marketplace, many users feared that their transactions would not be secure and therefore refrained from making purchases online. This results in self-censorship or feelings of anxiety over control of information can arise from the fear of new technologies or from observation of others ' compromised personal information. But, even if courts were to consider such an open-ended definition of harm, the underlying cause of action could curtail lawsuits from parties whose data was not actually breached. Thus, while some definitions of harm are more applicable or feasible than others in the privacy breach context, the availability of multiple definitions of harm indicates that the courts in question did make a choice to select some types of harm over others for the purpose of evaluating standing, with little explanation.
To conclude, Mr. Carnell would have had a better reaction if he took into account what his memo could impose on his employees. Although, the memo contained strong strategic and somewhat professional attire, it lacked the ethical background to draw his scolded employees in and retain them from retaliating against
