Are they courageous or cowardly?

How should we describe the terroristic hijackers who killed thousands of people on September 11th 2001? Are they courageous or cowardly? Attacking innocent, unarmed, civilian non-combatants is presumably cowardly, but facing death without flinching in the name of a cause one believe in seems courageous. What is the correct explanation of this horrific act, in terms of virtue?

Assignment 1 explored ethnocentrism.

Cultural Relativism
I have my ethical views and you have yours; neither my views nor yours are better or more correct. I may believe that a particular war was unjust, and you may believe that it was just. Someone else may believe that all war is wrong…we each have our individual histories that explain how we have come to hold our particular views or attitudes. But they are just that-our own individual views and attitudes. We cannot say that they are correct or incorrect because to do so would assume some objective standard of right and wrong against which we could judge their correctness. Such a standard does not exist.
Cultural Relativism
Ethics: Theory and Contemporary Issues 9th Edition (p. 46)
Assignment 1 explored ethnocentrism. Assignment 2 will explore cultural relativism. This one will require deep pondering. You begin by asking yourself if there are certain absolute rights and wrongs. Then consider if you have ever violated an absolute wrong? How do you know that something is absolutely wrong? By what standard do you judge others’ actions?
Remember applied ethics? Let’s explore some case studies so you can practice applying what you have learned.
First, we need to establish some assumptions:
You have established what is right and wrong for yourself
You have based your belief about what is right and wrong in such things as religion, education, humanism
One of those beliefs is that “killing is wrong.” You could never kill. This belief is not relative to a culture or situation; it is an absolute metaethical wrong.
Case Study #1
You study the Inuit culture and find that the elderly would be stabbed or left to freeze on ice flows. Death occurs swiftly. You think how barbaric this was and judge the culture as such. Now consider the way many elderly die in the U.S. today: confused, moaning, incontinent in diapers, a slow, agonizing death, perhaps being tube fed and given medications to prolong life. How would the Inuit of the day view our culture from this lens?
Case Study #2
You are studying ethics in war. You are not concerned about killing in war. War has different rules. Killing is OK in war. You have to kill to be in war. Private Doss participated in war yet held to his ethical beliefs. He did not kill, he saved, at great personal risk. Does this now mean that killing during war is wrong? Does it mean that killing during war is right? Does it support that everything is relative to our cultural beliefs? Watch the trailer for Hacksaw Ridge (02:25).
Case Study #3
Lawrence Franks (84) promised his wife, suffering from dementia, that he would never put her in a nursing home. Lawrence lovingly cared for his wife for years until her condition became too serious, and he was unable to properly care for her. He felt that she was suffering. He then killed his 86-year-old wife to fulfill his promise. He was charged with murder. Is Mr. Franks guilty of murder? Read his story.
Case Study #4
Jungdan Chow and his family have a tradition passed down for generations. The entire family would go to the markets to pick out dinner. This was a very special dinner as delicacies they could not typically afford were carefully chosen and prepared. Even the young children could sense the excitement in the air as they strolled through the market. Bat and fresh, boiled dog, were chosen that day and they hurried home to begin the feast, feeling connected to their ancestors by hundreds of years of tradition.
…wet markets are the predominant food retail outlets for fresh produce and meat in Chinese cities. They have very few supermarkets…. hedgehogs and peacocks and wild rabbits and snakes, deer; crocodiles as well. Many of these wild animals, they’re not necessarily caught in the wild – right? – so they can be farmed animals. They’re just exotic food that’s not very commonly found. Eating wild animals is considered a symbol of wealth because they are rarer and more expensive. And wild animals are also considered more natural and, thus, nutritious, compared to farmed meat. It’s a belief in traditional Chinese medicine that it can boost the immune system. Excerpted from: https://www.npr.org/2020/01/22/798644707/why-wet-markets-persisted-in-china-despite-disease-and-hygiene-concerns
Express your thoughts on cultural relativism.
Include the following aspects in the assignment:
How would you judge right and wrong from different cultural perspectives and different situations?
When making an ethical decision that will impact others, how would you assure that you are not viewing right and wrong from the perspective that only your culture knows?
To complete this, write one paragraph for each Case Study
There is no right or wrong answer here; you will be graded on the depth of your reflection

Ethics

If, on the other hand, you were angered at the cheating and subsequent lying (to your friend by their partner) and your anger was located in the ideal of promise-keeping, a value for truth-telling, and relational fidelity, then you are clearly using virtue ethics.

In a three-page paper, no more than 1200 words, no less than 950 words, double spaced, size 12 font, one-inch margins, address the following:
1) Describe one ethical dilemma you struggled with in your life. Put your description in a personal and historical context; in other words, use I statements, and locate yourself within the place, time, and relationships. Do not spend more than a page and a half on your description. 50 Points
2) Analyze the dilemma by using theoretical tools provided by the text, handouts, or lecture slides. E.g., Schools of ethics or Lonergan’s operations of consciousness, etc. 50 Points
Helpful Hints:
1. Have a concise introduction, no more than one paragraph, no less than three sentences.
2. Clearly, and early on, state your dilemma in one sentence. E.g., “My ethical dilemma consisted of whether or not I tell my friend Emma (use pseudonyms) that her partner Elijah is cheating on her,” or “My dilemma was whether I leave my insurance information on the parked car I hit or whether I drive off,” or “The moral conflict I experienced was whether I report the incident I witnessed or whether I remain silent.”
3. Do not include any irrelevant information – there is not enough space in this short paper. E.g., if it is the first dilemma above, I don’t need to know about Emma’s relationship with her mother, or where she works, or Elijah’s preference for partying (unless it is relevant).
4. Do not leave out relevant information. 4a. if after your description your reader does not know what actually happened, or the gravity of what happened, then you are not saying enough. (e.g., leaving out what you meant by theft or cheating (taking something trivial or theft of the paycheck from a single mother; holding hands cheating or sexual intercourse cheating?). 4b. if you don’t feel comfortable revealing relevant information, then you probably shouldn’t. I.e., the case is too close and you need to pick another one. to write about.
5. If your dilemma involves a serious crime consider the following before writing your paper. FERPA protects your privacy against inappropriate sharing by faculty and administration. But it does not protect against a subpoena and the like.
6. Since this is YOUR dilemma, you need to carefully state what YOU chose to do and WHY you chose to do it. This will reveal your preferred school of ethics in this instance. E.g., If you worried that Emma could, with continued sexual activity with Elijah who is cheating, acquire an STD, or that Elijah could bring another life into the world causing Emma emotional and financial stress, then you are clearly using consequentialism. If you worry that your source for the information is unreliable and that Emma will drop you as a friend if you tell her, then also consequentialism. If, on the other hand, you were angered at the cheating and subsequent lying (to your friend by their partner) and your anger was located in the ideal of promise-keeping, a value for truth-telling, and relational fidelity, then you are clearly using Virtue Ethics. Make sure you explain the theory (Lonergan or Schools) you are drawing on and how it applies in detail.
5. Based on thousands of past papers I have read, your first sentence is the most likely sentence to have grammatical or stylistic issues, and of all paragraphs, your first one is the most likely be the least readable. Suggestion: write your introductory paragraph LAST.
6. Finally, come up with a concise summary conclusion about whether you would make the same choice knowing what you know now, or something you learned about your self.

Denial?

Course Paper: The Ethical Follower
This assignment is worth 200 points of your final course grade. This assignment asks you to research a whistleblower who exposed unethical behavior in an organization and the outcome of that exposure or investigation. The research is to be done over the entire semester. The research paper should be a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 7 pages, not including, references and cover page. The paper must be written using APA 6th edition style format, double spaced and utilizing the Times New Roman font type and 12-point font size. The submitted paper will be checked for plagiarism and the appropriate sanctions applied (see pages 15-16 on the syllabus). Submitted papers must not be a compilation of quotes and those submitted in this format will be given a zero, even if the quotes are cited in the paper (see pages 15-16 of the syllabus).
The following are important guiding questions that must be answered in your paper.
1. Definitions of whistleblowing–legal and otherwise. For example, when actors report being sexually harassed by a film producer, is that a variety of whistleblowing? What is whistleblowing?
2.Online research of whistleblowing in the U.S. government–what offices exist, what cases have been tried, and what protections are offered for whistleblowers? For example, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has an Office of the Whistleblower. The U.S. Department of Labor offers a Whistleblower Protection Program. The Department of Energy lists the whistleblowing cases it has been involved in.
3.Online and library research of whistleblowing in the professions you as a student want to go into, such as the film industry, finance. Accounting, computer and informational technology, business management, marketing, the military, human resources, and so on.
4.Selection of a whistleblower to study (e.g., Sherron Watkins, Enron; Edward Snowden, NSA; Jeffrey Wigand, the tobacco industry, etc.). Consider looking for local whistleblowers who may have been profiled in regional newspapers. Locating individuals from our local communities who are whistleblowers, will hopefully make this project more “real.” There needs to be enough information publicly available to develop a substantive profile of the person’s organizational role and motivations for exposing unethical behavior. Hence, before selecting the whistleblower to study, make sure you are able to find adequate information that would meet your paper requirements.
5.Analysis of the follower’s ethical decision-making process. What considerations were weighed? What pressures (internal and external) did the whistleblower experience before and after deciding to expose a company’s unethical behavior?
6.What was the effect of the whistleblowing on the accused individual(s) and company? Acceptance of responsibility? Denial?
7.Summary of the outcome. Was there a trial? A verdict? An appeal? A settlement out of court? Was the follower changed in some way because of this experience?
8.What takeaway lessons about followership are there from this event?
Use Chapter 13 (Followership) in the Northouse textbook to guide your response to this research paper.
