Right or Wrong answers to ethics?
Debate Rounds (1)
You just made a statement of peoples beliefs and how it affects the decision's that they make. That is true but you have to understand the fact that now a day's people are so scared to go after what they believe in just because the society that they live in would think less of them. When it come's down to believing in your own thought's or even feelings people usually tend to back down from it. How they look in society and what people may think of them is far more important to us than how what is we call "right" or "wrong." For example most girl's or even boy's in high school follow a "crowd" just because they are known by most people and just because they attend a lot of parties they are known as "popular" so they just follow that crowd all the way through-out high school without even thinking that the crowd might be doing some wrong thing's. Just because most of the people tend to follow that crowd it is known as "correct" or as we call now a days "right." Young teen's and even adult's tend to follow the group that is best known by society. Another example is the critical time's that are going in Turkey right now. The Premaster of Turkey "fooled" the citizen's by saying that a certain company didn't accept his own offering's and charged extra but that really wasn't the case. The Premaster would say that it cost's this certain amount but in reality it would cost less than that. The rest of the money he would just keep to himself. Even now the citizens know what he has done but they still tend to believe him and follow his own right's. Why? Because he has made the society believe that this is the "right" way, his way. Citizen's just follow what they are taught that is right. Most of the citizens probably don't even believe him but they still follow him because it is the only right way to stay in the "group." People beliefs are nothing compared to their beliefs when it comes down to their right's of society. Following the crowd of people is far more important than following their own beliefs and dream's. People just through that aside and just start to do what everybody else does with their life. They never come to think that maybe just being themselves would help make thing's easier in life. Being themselves would just give everyone a different character, a different thought. Maybe this world wouldn't be so based upon just "certain people," everyone would have a part and everyone would try thing's differently. But unfortunately thing's aren't that way. Citizen's just follow what is meant to be "right." This is my last response to this debate. I can see that we both have good view point's and both are correct in our own way's. But I just wish that you were more understanding when it comes down to people just following what is taught to them. People do the "right" thing which is what is taught to them, by parents, elders, even society. We are taught certain things as a child and are meant to be that way.
