Well, to truly be a responsible American citizen, we must follow three basic principles such as respect the rights of others, be active in government and follow the rules and laws. First off, as a society we need to learn to respect the rights of others. One of the simplest and maybe even the most obvious way to do this is to not disrespect others. Nevertheless, some people find it hard to understand when they are being disrespectful. One key point to avoid being disrespectful is to understand the freedoms of others.
King values civil disobedience, which is the refusal to obey certain laws or governmental demands by nonviolent techniques as boycotting, picketing, and nonpayment of taxes, but the violence created from that is not his fault. Logic is key in this situation because its obvious you shouldn't punish someone who isn't being violent. Another example is, "We can never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was “legal” and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was “illegal.” It was “illegal” to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler’s Germany. But I am sure that if I had lived in Germany during that time I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers even though it was illegal. .
“Moral courage is the ability to put ethics into action. It means standing up and standing out in defense of principle, even when others are standing aside. Ethical action is more than whistle blowing. It involves daily acts of integrity, carried out with dignity, in which individuals stand up for what is right and encourage others to do the same (Pecora, Cherin, Bruce and Arguello, 2010, p. 41). As a future social worker, it is actually advantageous to have the NASW code of ethics.
That is saying to not be secured to tell the cops if something happens to you because he had to lie and if you lie to the cops you might get in double. Those are my reasons why Sigmund Brouwer did a good job saying about to not be secured to tell the cops if something happens to
The Fourth Amendment is “the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause.” In other words, it is against the law for police to search any person without probable cause and an issued warrant. (Cartoon Surveillance) This protects the privacy of the innocent people that may not be considered guilty. However, giving the people a right to a warrant is only giving them an advantage, while the police and the government have a disadvantage. Issuing warrants take away time and privilege for police. Needing a warrant may unable police to some investigations as well.
The difference between inherited principles and conscience is the fact that principles are taught to be something that should be of great value to every individual. A conscience is shaped by their own cognitive development. Social environments tell you what is right and wrong through their perspective, and many learn this as fact—after all, mutual agreement and following what others do create an organized, uniform, and more structured society. Conscience is sometimes stronger within certain people than with others. Sometimes an individual finds their conscience telling them a certain law or action is wrong.
The issue at hand was supposed to be about our civil liberties being violated, but Snowden inadvertently put the spotlight on himself by breaking the law as well. Thus, bringing up our topic of him being a hero or a traitor rather than just the government breaking civil laws. While the topic of Snowden is a valid issue, it is not exactly the one that should be receiving the most attention by the media. Instead of focusing on who did what, we should be focusing on the public’s rights and safety. The argument against Snowden also brings up the false dilemma fallacy.
Hannah Patrick, I agree that ethics is someone’s behavior behind closed doors or doing the right thing even when no one is there to see you. I also agree that law, religion, social norms, and family beliefs help form our moral and ethical behavior for the most part. Most people think being ethical is knowing the difference between right and wrong but who is to say what is the definition of right and wrong (Mintz, 2015). Being ethical requires us to be responsible and accountable for our actions but there are many ways in which being ethical to one person can be considered a problem for another person such as abortions or enthusiasm. Other thoughts on being ethical is not hurting another person by actions or words and being truthful is also
In this story, I will be telling you about stealing, and how it is not good. The punishment of stealing can result to jail and distrust from others. When you steal, you can get LIFE punishment in jail, or even get your life token if you are caught in the act of stealing, and I don’t think you want that to happen. But people think its right because they don’t have to work for what they steal. And because they can’t afford it, they think it’s good to steal and it’s not.
If these concealed weapons were taken away it would be a major mistake by the government and by the people for voting it out of our own constitution. Concealed weapons should be legal as the way it is because of police, self defense and criminal activity. The first mistake that would be made is how some may not understand that the police won’t be watching you 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Police officers patrol most of
Define the following terms: Values, Ethics and Morality. What is their relationship to the law? Value is what is viewed as personally right or wrong. Sometimes the law will contradict one’s values, sense of morality and even professional ethics. Ethics describes the collectively agreed –upon “correct” behaviors within the context of a professional group.
. 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.
