my ethics 33 Comments

I have been struggling with something on my mind. Philosophy is study of problems of many things. For example you could find me starting my sentences with “my philosophy…

Ethics is a branch or an extension of philosophy that address right versus wrong.

Everything and anything at some level becomes an issue of ethics. Friendships, business relationships, business agreements and arrangements that require two people to negotiate become an issue of morality.

The problem is situation require people to be unethical. Years ago I for example was promised a job and got the job and started and then the employers let me go a few days into the job. This was a contract situation in which I turned down another contract and ended up here.

For years after that I always would set up a backup plan so that I am not stuck without an opportunity. I once accepted three short term contracts, all starting a week after another. This way if the first job was not appealing I would quit and go to the second position followed by another all in a three week period.

This was highly unethical but business and managers are well better off than I am and most likely fucked over a lot more people than I ever have. In fact, I have seen by bosses or coworkers low ball people that were desperate for a little bit of work.

Those at the top of the food chain abuse those that are below them. Unfair and unethical behavior is everywhere! And so I thought it was ok for me to do the same.

The only thing is that I am fair in non-work situations; especially with my friends.

I automatically expect those around me to treat me ethically. If they don’t, I tell them and or protect myself. The problem is that people I think are behaving immorally in certain situations involving me; then I don’t know what to do except pondering seizing and desisting my arrangement with them.

    someone lied to me about why she did not get xyz; boils down to: I did not want it. The truth came out now, and now she want me to help her obtain xyz. should I help? I am leaning towards only partial help.

    is ethics absolute all the time?

  4. 4 Nolawi

    i like to thinks so…

  5. 5 corp_alum

    It cannot be absolute; had it been one, then there would not be a necessity for wars, disagreements or divorce…

    Ethics, I think is dynamic and can only be judged in retrospect. It may have been ethical at the exact moment it was being played put, but as things and circumstances come up and pass, so does its sense towards the players & participants. Does not make it right, but justified for however long…

    Ethics is the theory of right and wrong, and yes it is one of the four main areas of Philosophy. Ethics questions if there are really goods and bads? or does thinking so make it so? How do we know what we think and/or believe to be good or bad are actually good or bad(e.g Abortion pros and cons). Ethics are important to some of us, because we acknowledge that our every action has an effect on others and vice versa. Some practice whats is called good ethics, by not doing to others what they wouldn’t want done to them, while some practice doing others wrong not expecting any repercussions. We have these choices in our everyday life that may/maynot lead us to live a harmonious life depending on what a harmonious life means to each one of us individually.

    You said “Those at the top of the food chain abuse those that are below them. Unfair and unethical behavior is everywhere! And so I thought it was ok for me to do the same.”

    You became unethical because others are unethical. Strange, isn’t it? I think this is unacceptable. You are either good or bad for your own sake not because others are good or bad.

    As Obama is quoting this bible verse always … it has been always my ethics, as much as possible: Do to others as you would have them do to you.

    If you really see it in your perspective, you would know the ethics, i.e. in my opinion including abortion. I wouldn’t be here, if i was aborted. I don’t want to be killed and i don’t want to do that to anyone. I hate guys doing unfair things to girls, as i hate it to be done on my sisters. I hate when anyone who is a victim of something to do unfair thing to me just because he/she is a victim and I would not want to do that even though i become a victim of unfair things many times … the list continues like that!

    I have always thought the golden rule should be “do unto others as THEY would have it done unto them” because what I would have done unto me might not be the same as you would do unto you.

    Each time you crash your helicopter you will end up spending hundreds of dollars.
    The break came in 1907 when Paul Cornu, a French pioneer created a twin-rotor helicopter that
    lifted off the ground for few seconds. The RC helicopter of today will
    show better and much improved aero dynamics that marches and out performs the actual ones.

    The very core of your writing while appearing reasonable originally, did not really settle perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you were able to make me a believer but only for a short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you would do well to help fill in all those gaps. In the event that you can accomplish that, I will surely be impressed.
