Ethics is about what we should – and should not - do. It includes identification of basic principles, e.g. the prerogatives of property owners; and the application of those principles to actual situations, e.g. copyright protection of intellectual property over the Internet.

Identify two ethical principles that should guide technical communications Explain each of the principles you chose and provide an example of why each is important?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Two ethical principles that should guide technical communications are honesty and accuracy. Honesty entails providing truthful and reliable information without exaggeration or omission. It is essential to maintain trust and credibility with the audience. Accuracy emphasizes the importance of providing information that is precise, reliable, and supported by evidence. This principle ensures that the audience can make informed decisions or take proper actions based on the information received. For example, in product documentation, being honest about potential limitations or risks can prevent customers from making uninformed choices and potentially causing harm.

Are less intelligent or less educated people more evil than others?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No, intelligence and education levels are not determinants of a person's morality or capacity for evil. Evil actions can be committed by individuals regardless of their intelligence or education. Factors such as upbringing, values, circumstances, and personal choices play a significant role in a person's behavior, rather than their intellectual or educational capabilities.

WHAT INCREASE unethical behaviour?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Essential to living as believers is a walk of love we attain by following God's Word.

I John 5:3 "For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments…"

Ephesians 5:2 "And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us… "

Living this way, we are sound-minded and feel protected and safe. In contrast, if we fail to walk in love, fear, the believer's greatest enemy, becomes evident in our lives.

II Timothy 1:7 "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

I John 4:18 "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love."

Fear is the basis of many human difficulties, including anxiety, apprehension, regret, suspicion, envy, discouragement, doubt, worry, confusion, and more. Unethical behavior is always action motivated by fear.

To be the kind of person we should be for our friends and loved ones, we faithfully put our trust in God and continue walking in His love. In doing this, we live courageously without fear.

What are the ethical issues involved in Euthanasia?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It's a difficult subject to discuss. Many people think it's wrong to take your own life (or for someone to willingly help you end your life) - even if it means you're freed from the suffering of terminal and/or painful illness. From my own point of view - I would much rather end my life (or give permission for someone to help me) than be left in a vegetative state or in severe pain just because the law says the medical profession mustprolong my life indefinitely !

Why do people disagree over whether euthanasia is right or wrong?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

some people think euthanasia is like "putting people to sleep" and doctors are playing god. some people think it's as bad as killing someone. some people think it should be allowed because it "puts people out of misery" like someone who is suffering from a painful disease or some misfortune of life and wants to die. it's as big a controversial topic as abortion.

Euthanasia should be allowed in presence of a high ranked police officer or a Gazetted officer who is not related to the person. And who will not in anyway gain monetary benefits, like inheriting something.

What was Shakespeare's political affiliation?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Shakespeare did not get involved in national politics for two reasons: first, he was not a nobleman and only noblemen could go to court and influence the monarch and second, it was dangerous to make political statements in plays, as the producers of The Isle of Dogs found to their cost. Although Shakespeare's father was involved in local politics, Shakespeare was not really connected enough to Stratford to play a part in their political system, and not respectable enough to be involved in London politics. Also, political parties as we now understand them did not exist in Shakespeare's day.

How did early civilizations develop?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Before civilizations were present we were hunters and gatherers. For the most part the women were the gatherers and the men were the hunters. Women were the first to come across Mushrooms, Peyote, and every other plant.

The men while hunting used the feces from the bovine animals to track them. Many times finding feces that was old which happen to have mushrooms growing from it. Eventually after some time, perhaps thousands of years of ingesting mushrooms for the first time, we eventually grew in logic and reasoning skills.

You see, there was no TV 145,000 years ago, so for well over 100,000 before we existed as a species, the precursors to our own species, our ancestors, took mushrooms as they sat around the camp fires for hours being occupied with brightly colored visions much like the television does today!

Why did early civilizations develop of writing?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Writing was/is important in ancient civilizations on two fronts. First of all, it was important to the ancients because that was how they kept their records, and their histories. It is important to us, because it gives us insights into their societies, laws, and sometimes into their likes and dislikes. In other words, we get to know them through their writings.
