In the discussion of moral objectivism and moral relativism, it is important to understand the difference, and the impact that a moral system has on the criminal justice community. The community exists to enforce the laws. Moral judgments are made with votes, and the decisions on how laws are crafted are made by elected officials. For this reason, it makes sense for the criminal justice community to separate themselves professionally from their own moral views. Moral Relativism is the view of morality, much like beauty, is relative to the person, culture, or organization.
Like I stated early in the paper the book defined moral rules as things like someone thinking children come before self. Moral behaviors are better represented by the six characteristics this institute released. Morals or morality is defined as the differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are distinguished as proper and
The creature shows various human traits. The creature is no different than humans in the way that humans can kill, be kind or be violent and miserable, which the creature shows and experiences. As the creature learns more he encounters villagers with "gentle manners" and some barbarous villagers" who treat him like trash. If humans are so called humans because of their sympathy and compassion, then humans shouldn 't be considered humans if they kill or become violent. The men the creature meets are just as defective as he becomes.
Being able to govern themselves while having rights is something else that makes humans, human. Humans can take these rights away from one another. This is called dehumanization. Humans can take away other humans rights, making them feel less human and worthless. The act of dehumanization can lead to the violence, crimes, and even the mass murder of millions of people.
Seeing that there is still indifference in the world and seeing that after many years people are still fighting for their rights, It can be presumed that Humans have not changed. To conclude, human rights cannot be actualized for every person because of the lack of compassion people have for others. To achieve human rights for all people, everyone would need to understand one another and accept each other’s differences. Indifference is still an occurring issue in our time and it needs to end. If we are to truly change we need to be more active when it comes to shaping the future for Human
In simple words, a moral theory is an effort at outlining what an individual ought to do in accord to an intrinsic good. It can take many aspects, each with it’s own strength and weaknesses, and each appealing in it’s own way. In this paper I will focus on two normative ethical theories, consequentialism and deontology. I will respectively describe each one, and will then proceed to list their corresponding benefits and shortcomings. I will conclude by siding with consequentialism for various reasons that I will try my best to explain.
Morality is a set of values held by a person in making when judging and evaluating what is deemed right or wrong, good or bad (Brandt, 1959). When we talk about morality in counseling it’s about the reasoning by the counselor that has four levels. They are, personal intuition, ethical guidelines established by professional organizations, ethical principles and general theories of moral action (Kitchener, 1984). Ethics is described as adopted principles that has relations to man’s behavior and moral decision making (Van Hoose & Kottler, 1985). Ethics is often thought as a synonym to morality.
Morality is the judgment of behavior between what is right and wrong. It is the concept of moral identity, human’s behavior, and conscience. It is living according to a moral code and principles of human from right and wrong. Morality is objective because the set of moral judgments is not just true from a person's subjective opinion but factually true. We have this unspoken law which is the natural law, where it govern human behavior are from the nature of human beings and the nature of the world, objective because morality is based on facts and not from personal feelings, beliefs, and opinions.
When I think about the concept of human equality at first I would say all humans are created equal. I think I have this idea because it is what I have always heard. However, after reading chapter two of Practical Ethics by Peter Singer I have realized that my understanding of equality has been misconstrued. According to Singer, “whatever test we choose, it simply is not true that all humans are equal” (Singer 2011, 17). To say that every person is equal doesn’t account for the obvious differences among everyone.
