Our question is; In what situation is it appropriate to go against personal morals if it benefits the greatest number of people. This question speaks to the ethical questions we are investigating because it plays into the responsible of individuals and communities. Our question asks people to evaluate their role in the community. It also examines how people choose the responsibility that they want based on their role in the community. We are working on “right morals” is there such a thing? Everyone has their own view on right so can there be one set of right and wrong? We came up with three scenarios.We are asking people to place these scenarios in order from 1 to 3, 1 being least and 3 being greatest. We chose scenarios that fall in the middle. If they had been extreme scenarios it would have been easier to classify them. Some connections we made are with Antigone and viewing each characters decisions and their role in the community. This piece is a great example to find a system of “right morals” or lack thereof. Each person acted but with purpose they each have a valid reason for what they did. Also Shelter helps look at journalists and how they are constantly looking at their responsibility to the community in getting out information. We also look at The Man in the Well the children decided that in this scenario they should stick as a group in their decision to not help the man.The importance of this study is to see how people go through life consciously knowing that certain actions are wrong. It explores our system of right and wrong.
