First, it was acknowledged that every individual is protected against losing their citizenship according to the Fourteenth Amendment, in Afroyim v. Rusk. That the Constitution requires, “clear and convincing evidence” that citizenship was voluntary denounced, which Congress does not have the power to constitute the standard of. Secondly, the court recognized that even though in the case of Nishikawa v. Dulles it was ruled that Congress does have the right to supply the standard of evidential proof; the case was not a fair decision based on the Constitution. Proof was left to Terrazas to show that he did not mean to denounce his citizenship. While congress does have the authority to set a standard on the federal level, it does not during civil cases.
The appellate court however, determined that he was within the scope of his employment and this cannot be sued personally. Reasoning: FRIEDLANDER, Judge stated he believed the trial court correctly concluded that the allegation of negligence upon which the Bushongs’ action is premised was against a government employee acting within the scope of his employment. Judge Friedlander quoted Ind. Code Ann. § 34-13-3-5(a) prohibits a lawsuit against a public employee for actions committed while the employee was acting within the scope of employment, for his reasoning to dissent or reverse judgement.
After that, the researcher has to make the safety of the participants a priority. Their research can not harm any of the participants and if the case does potentially endanger a participant, the researcher must stop the study. Confidentiality is another ethical standard that the sociologist must keep in mind during and after the study is completed. For example, the researcher cannot disclose confidential information about any of the participants even if the police ask for it. The results of the study have to be available to other researchers and something crucial to keep in mind is that if someone is willing to fund the study it must be known to all.
Ayn Rand’s website introduces objectivism as a new philosophy for life; it explains the four components and how they work together: “In Rand’s philosophy, reality is not to be rewritten or escaped, but, solemnly and proudly, faced.” All choices must follow nature’s laws, because they are unchanged and unable to be controlled. Reason should also be used when making decisions, because “To choose to follow reason, Rand argues, is to reject emotions, faith or any form of authoritarianism as guides in life.” People need to prioritize facts over desires or emotions. “The purpose of morality,”“is to teach us what is in our self-interest, what produces happiness.” The purpose of life is to make decisions that are self-beneficial and that provide us with happiness. A capitalistic society will “protect the rights of each individual,” so they can “demand the freedom to think and speak, to earn property and associate and trade, and to pursue his own happiness.” Men should have the right to create their dreams and pursue them. Lastly, Rand states: “An individual who eagerly faces reality, who embraces his own rational mind as an absolute, and who makes his own life his highest moral purpose will demand his freedom… and pursue his own happiness.” It is necessary to use these tools to be the right kind of selfish and live the most fulfilling
Moral Values Moral relativism focuses on a philosophy outlook that asserts there is no global, absolute moral law that applies to all people, for all time, and in all places. Instead of an objective moral law, it espouses a qualified view where morals are concerned, especially in the areas of individual moral practice where personal and situational encounters supposedly dictate the correct moral position. Robin Schumacher “What is Moral Relativism” Sept 2013 A good reference of this article in motion can be seen in with deficit that occurred in the American financial and banking industry. The teaching in the relative morality with the philosophy ethics of business proceeded to live out those teachings on Wall Street and in other corporate
Codes of Ethics are a way to guarantee the media follows principles and ethical standards. A Code of Ethics sets out principles and guidelines built on core values. For example, the Code of Ethics of Australia’s Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance establishes that “MEAA members engaged in journalism commit themselves to honesty, fairness, independence, and respect for the rights of others” (MEAA Journalist Code of Ethics). People who participate in the media must put the principles into practice and apply them when they search, receive, distribute and comment the information. Consequently, the media must follow principles that set boundaries in what it publishes, so it will not be able to publish anything and everything it
Individuality- They should never have to fit in with you or your employer. Individuals should be allowed and supported to make their own choices. Independence- You must allow the individual that you are supporting to do things themselves. Being independent does not mean being alone, but being supported to do things for themselves.

Most of us are on the same page about freedom, security, equality, and even the environment. No one dislikes those things. We think of [values] as a kind of rules that can never be violated, sacred rules that must be protected”(Emily Badger 539). Yet t he problem is that later on these things can go into conflict, and that happens all the time. The tactics shouldn’t be used t o discriminate anybody.

Defense attorneys are confronted with the new regulation “special administrative measure” (SAM) as it seemed to overlook the underlying ethical issue. Defense attorneys fully abide by the Model Rules of Professional Conduct. In particular, they abide by Rule 1.6, which is the requirement of confidentiality. The rule prohibits the use of attorney-client communication as evidence before a court of law. The ethical rule demands that “a lawyer shall not reveal information to the representation of the client.” The rule ensures that the information that is exchanged by the attorney and client is confidential and that it’s not presented in court or to anyone else.
As mentioned earlier, Costco’s code of ethics devotes the first section of the document to addressing compliance with laws and regulations. Being an enterprise that does business in various areas, the code makes it a mandate to comply with the laws of every community Costco operates in. Compliance with product safety and security standards, ecological standards, labor laws, antitrust laws, and corporate reporting and disclosures with the SEC and public communications are the major legal elements addressed in the company code of ethics.
