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”. For me this have a meaning that if we follow those guidelines we are being morally good, we can live morally by our own choice and if not probably we will have consequences and not just because a divine superior requires us live in morality. Even though I am a strong believer in God not all people is, therefore the social contract will apply for all
Hersey’s message not only applies to people of his time period but to contemporary society as well. Many people today are concerned with fitting in and accepting societal norms. This leads people to adopt other people’s beliefs that they may not agree with or believe in just to fit in. Hersey’s message in this novel can be applied to situations such as these. He makes the point that thinking for oneself is more important that blindly following the thoughts and ideas of others.
She might think he will listen to her and not steal again. If this is true, then somebody from the community should have stepped up and tried to do the same earlier. In conclusion, the moral of this story is that in order for someone to learn what is respectable or at least right, someone else must teach them. If they have no family or parents that to do this, then consequently it is up to the community to help that person
Sometimes people critic based on the actions you make. I think you must carry yourself in a respective way and that way you don’t give any reason for people to talk of you or critic you. I really think it would be a good idea if school systems use the ethics moral from Kant, that way our kids would learn early in life. Kant hard work paid off to help people understand and learn the moral values, people that rad about his moral values could learn many things especially on how to deal in making decisions and how actions have
Ever since the beginning of civilization, we the people have created standards and rules that regulate our actions throughout our daily lives. These rules are completely unique to us and the harshness or strictness of each rule varies among the type of person. For example, a person that is conscious of their environment and takes caution throughout their life will have rules regulating the types of activities that they participate in because of their personality. However, a person that is very relaxed and laid back will have less rules about what not to do. Rules have a very important impact on a person’s life.
In every family I have come across, however, there is at least a subliminal pressure to follow social constructs. Those that do not obey are disowned or outcasted in one way or another. Which is why, while one might associate conformity with ideas such as submission or oppression, I think of family. Granted, though submission and obedience are synonyms of conformity, so are harmony and agreement; it is not always a bad concept. In a way, it is because I want to be kind like my parents that I do not go out and steal from or injure others.
Unlike formal social control, there is no punishment when you break these rules it is up to the person to assess the punishment of these violations. Formal social control is a totally expressed law and since we realize that in the event that if we break these principles that they will be punished. unlike normal social control where it uses our own sense of morality in which lessens the likelihood that a person would willingly commit any wrongdoing or do something that is out of the norm because we care more about how we are seen by others than being subservient to the authorities as we just take others believe that we should follow the law just because others do. (Which was also stated in the ash experiment.) In conclusion, the informal social control works better because it uses indirect methods that do not have any procedures using fear of humiliation and ridicule to control a person behavior.
I believe that people are not born evil because throughout growing up every person is determining what is right from wrong with how others respond, whether it be positively or negatively. There are many different ways anyone can determine whether their actions are more towards the evil side than good. People might not recognize that they are hurting other individuals more than helping them. From the book, ‘Uncharted Territory’ created by Jim Burke, David Brooks wrote ‘The Humility Code’ based on morals he believed in. David Brooks moral code number 7 states, “If you make disciplined, caring choices, you are slowly engraving certain tendencies into your mind.
Basically, morality is just a guide on what is wrong and what is right, but ethics are our action towards it. To do good and avoid evil. Ethics is what we must fulfill while living. It is like the two roads given to us which is more like to be morality. We have a freedom to choose between these two roads, but a voice will whisper, our conscience, and will tell and urges us which road to follow that is for the betterment of our welfare.
As children, we were taught by our parents that it is wrong to lie, cheat, and steal. As we grow up and enter into the real world with some knowledge of right and wrong, we see, first hand, the importance of ethics as well as its complexity. The role of ethics in our society and in an individual’s life is very necessary because it has a large influence on today, as well as the future. We need to learn about good ethics because they guide our decisions, make us who we are, and determine our future. We are taught the difference between the right and wrong since our childhood but are always told that the lying and cheating always makes things difficult but when students go to school and college they are faced with different dilemma as then the cheating seems to be the easier way to get good grades.
The childminder need to develop reliable warm, affectionate relationship with children particularly babies, but they should not look for replace the parents. Babies require being with same people to develop social relationship. This is why EYFS require early yearâ€TMs settings and schools to implement a key person system. Parents and the childminder have something in common, they all want best for the children. The roles engaged are not the same but they are complementary.
I would feel confused, since I could not think of a reason I would make fun of someone else. I would like for my children to fully understand just how rewarding and important it can be to simply show compassion towards other people. Hard work is easily one of the most important values one could have. Working hard plays a key factor in accomplishing any goal. However, working does not simply mean fulfilling the tasks one 's parents or school assign.
