While ethical relativism has its advantages, such as that it could create a peaceful society, that is not always the case. Relativism does not accept that certain moral values are universal. Just because cultures differ, that does not mean there are no moral values and norms, like murder or child abuse. Determining what is morally right or wrong is a difficult thing, and each individual has a different belief about it. So, by allowing everyone to follow their own moral code, it could lead to a chaotic society.
Social media is a burgeoning form of media just recently being studied. Its ability to connect a wide range of people, including those in a political position of power, is bound to have an effect on the voting populace. Sites like Twitter and Facebook allow for the uncensored opinions of close friends, family members, celebrities, and other important figures to be emphasized in a way that traditional face-to-face communication cannot accomplish (Bennett, 2012). As a result, political scientists have taken advantage of this new tool, attempting to see if social media influences voting patterns, ideological preferences, and even more individualistic political aspects. One change caused by social media has been more public access to politicians.
They justify this action by saying that they are protecting people they love from the truth; though I don’t think this is a useful action since the truth always comes out. Since the modern days have changed, people lie to others to hide a truth, to seem more interesting, to hide fears and manipulate. This may be caused by insecurity or other personal factors. Honesty is an important value for our society to be in harmony. Humans are not able to love if we are not honest.
Lastly, people must rid themselves of any bad and unhealthy ideals. They must not feel pressured by the media, friends, family or external sources to change themselves and pursue activities that they feel uncomfortable about and are not right. They must not succumb to people’s expectations and unhealthy ideals, but instead set high (but reachable) standards for themselves to keep improving and being better. They must realize that they don’t have to be perfect and suit what everyone think of them, but instead feel comfortable in their own skin and set healthy standards to keep improving instead of being
Hobbies, taste in music and educational background is all fairly basic information that can be shared publicly as it is not too personal and does not carry the risk of putting one in a vulnerable position for sharing it. In contrast, moderate risk information has a limit as to whom it can be shared with. For example, discussing one’s biggest regrets in life is not information that can be shared with everyone as it is a bit personal. I would not be comfortable talking about the actions I regret most in life with someone I do not have an established relationship with because I would feel like I was putting myself too out there while not being sure of the reaction the other person would have. A negative reaction would make me feel worse about a situation I already feel bad about.
The general public might not like qualified immunity but it is needed to protect government workers from aimlessly being sued for any claim that they violated anyone’s rights. Qualified immunity will cause positive impacts on future cases. Future cases using qualified immunity will allow the courts to waste less time with cases where there are no clear violation of somebody’s constitutional rights and move on to other cases. Even if somebody gets qualified immunity, they can be punished in their jobs if they broke the rules and they can still get sued for other
The rules main goal is to prohibit evidence obtained in violation of a person's constitutional rights from being admissible in court (Siegel 2010). The exclusionary rule may prevent evidence seized in violation of a person's constitutional rights from being admitted into court, an officer who has violated someone's rights could also be sued along with their agency. According to Section 1983 of the U.S. Code an officer could be prosecuted criminally under some circumstances as well (Forsythe n.d.). The case United States v. Leon is notable because due to this case the good faith exception was added to the exclusionary rule. The exemption allows evidence collected in violation of privacy rights as interpreted from the Fourth Amendment to be admitted at trial if police officers acting in good faith relied upon a defective search warrant (Siegel 2010).
Who is to say that one norm is more normal or morally correct and another is not? Confusion in me turned to a sense of justice. It may not be “normal” for someone to have a different sexual orientation or religious view than somebody else; however, denying someone their right to be that or to believe that is most certainly not the norm. This distinction can be made because norms are not written rules or laws, but our laws and the constitution has been written down and they prevent discrimination based on a whole host of things, making them social norms that everyone must adhere to or must suffer the
With the continuous development, more and more people are joining the social media platforms. Almost all mobile phones used today can access the Internet and makes it easy for people to use social media sites. People who have not joined any of the social media sites described as old and lack of technological knowledge. With so many people who use social media sites, the whole world interconnected, and information can spread from one corner of the world to the hall in a short time. If the data is wrong, it can cause chaos all over the world.
Social network sites which is called (SNS) allow people to do a lot of tasks. The variety of social tasks of social network which includes chatting, commenting, updating status, etc .. (Burkell et.al, 2014). Modern social network sites are very useful for people and almost became a part of their daily life. It helps them keeping in touch with family and friends, to know the latest news around the world and widen people's scoops daily. Unfortunately social networking isn't helping society progress, downgrading people's social skills and putting people's society at risk and putting people's society at risk which is the most important issue for the most visited
