Unethical Media in social Media Unethical media is a big problem nowadays and it should be solved, it is morally wrong, against accepted standards of behavior. Ethics is the way people behave based on how their beliefs about what right and wrong influence behavior. Ethics is defined as the analysis, promotion and evaluation of what establishes virtuous character and correct conduct according to the best principles available. Ethics doesn 't ask simply the way to live in a good manner. It asks how one must live well in an ethical manner, i.e., in goodness as well as in the right relation amongst one other, a task which might necessitate us to sacrifice personal benefits, in carrying out duties or in enduring persecution.
One of the first Ethical Dilemmas presented in the book is what are the morals of the people in Maycomb. It is clear that Maycomb has differences in how people act, but that is different on what their moral values are. Moral values are relating to the principles of right conduct or what a person sees as right and wrong. So it is basically what people think is right and wrong. This strongly influences the decisions that they take, considering that a person will do something if it seems wrong.
This seems to make sense, as if one is a moral person, there must be some aim of the morality. She continues this by saying “For surely he must want others to be happy. To deny this would be to deny that benevolence is a virtue-and who wants to deny that?” (47) By saying this, she says that benevolence, or caring about others’ welfare or happiness, is definitely a virtue. She then continues, “a benevolent person must often aim at the good of others and call it ‘a good thing’” (48). This provides an adequate definition of what a benevolent person is.
Being an individual would be much easier if it weren 't for frowns and rolling eyes that people get when being themselves, acting out of the ordinary, or standing up for what they believe in when it goes against society or even their peers. “Right is right, and wrong is wrong, and a body ain’t got no business doing wrong when he ain’t ignorant and knows better” (124). Huck believes that that is inherent for people to be good. “Humans can be awful cruel to one another”
Introduction Ethics is the theory of human behavior that could be seen from right or wrong and as long as it was rational and doesn’t harm other. Ethics have a strong relation to the Moral, and moral have a strong relation toward the Culture. Ethics shape the way we live, what should we do, and also show us whether it was right or wrong behavior. Ethics also act as the measurement for everyday live whether it was good or not. Professional ethics is the characteristic of how should the professional do toward its profession.
After these contracts are established, however, then society becomes possible, and people can be expected to keep their promises, cooperate with one another, and so on. I believe that thanks to the social contract we created justice and established what is moral and immoral for the whole society and not only on what we think could be moral or immoral. This topic may be controversial for some people because they will probably think that even though the social contract was created to be equal for all people there are some things until today that does not apply for all. But for me that is not a strong reason to do not believe in the Social contract I strongly believe in this theory because this is what makes a civil society with justice and morality. A philosopher Stuart Rachels suggests that, “ morality is the set of rules governing behavior that rational people accept, on the condition that others accept them too”.
What if individuals accept the worse and when offered something better, they believe they don’t deserve it? George’s character is somewhat insinuating this because of his abilities he deserved to be handicapped, and if he does something out of the way he needs more punishment. I chose George because I believed that he depicted what was wrong with the society and how that we let higher ranking people tell us what we deserve. George is a smart individual, and knows that his government is wrong, yet does nothing. In some cases aren’t all individuals
Cultural norms provide a backbone of guidance for people in the society to know what is morally correct and morally wrong. These norms are formed through trial and error and they are generalized towards what is morally correct in various situations that occur in society. I believe that we do not have to ALWAYS follow these norms and “ride the wave”. In a situation, I strongly believe that although yes, norms do still matter and may still make sense, it should not always dictate what is realistically correct in a situation. Are there moments when you think your personal values contradict cultural norms?
Although his actions and decisions seem to be bad, the character gets sympathized for his internal struggles. Afraid of revealing his sin to the public shows his lack of courage. A reason for this lack of courage is due to puritan beliefs. The puritans had religious exclusiveness that was the foremost principle of their society. The Puritans were strict and had punishments for everything especially adultery.
MORAL PERCEPTIONS Moral perception is a term used in ethics to denote the discernment of the morally salient qualities in particular situations. In order to understand this, we must understand what ethics is all about. Ethics, also known as moral philosophy is the branch of philosophy that involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong conduct. It talks about what the best way for living is. It teaches us what conduct is right and wrong and under what circumstances.
Understanding the character, Chillingworth, depends on what person is interpreting him. If a certain person grew up knowing betrayal in their life, they might sympathize and affiliate themselves with Chillingworth. Others on the other hand may find it generally problematic to understand Chillingworth. He has had a lack of appreciation and does not deserve the hostility that is given towards him. Chillingworth’s transgression was only tormenting Dimmesdale’s wrongdoing and keeping him alive to do so.
In society, people should be ethically responsible with helping people. People act ethically responsible when one is in need of assistance because they let their sympathetic feelings of compassion take over their intentions. Ethical responsibility is a duty or obligation to ensure the individual’s well-being through specific commitments; such as saving someone from a certain tragedy. One piece of evidence from the text that demonstrates the sudden acts of ethical responsibility is “Can the Law Make Us Be Decent” by Jay Sterling Silver. Though many may argue that Silver’s argument is invalid, most will agree that his argument is in fact agreeable.
By ruling with good morals you are showing the society positive ways. They are able to notice that their ruler is respecting them and being trustworthy; therefore the society will be in harmony and follow in the footsteps of their ruler. It was said that if you promote good relationships than you are able to manage them, not loose the good will of the people, and you become “worthy of being looked up to as the head of the clan” (“Confucius Analects” 3). Confucius also strongly agreed that the role of a ruler was to guide the society rather than trying to control them. He believed that if we didn’t guide them and only punished them they will not get in trouble but they will never have shame for what they have done.
