Well readers we’ve had a long semester full of interesting topics, but the semester is coming to an end now. Who knows I might continue righting blogs just for the fun of it, will just have to see about that. For my last and final blog from the reminder of this class. Professor Conrad assigned us another ethical topic to expand our knowledge and readers on research ethics. For the assignment I must review a fellow bloggers blogs from my marketing research & strategies class.
I selected Braython Tall blog post about ethical and unethical reasoning. The post title is ethical or unethical. This created blog was created April 10, 2017, Tall discusses how it is important to know the best way to obtain information that is needed. He brings up a point that with each experiment we do in today’s world is effecting the line between ethical and unethical. He goes along with say that this can cause a negative backlash will any form of media is disturbing unethical stories.
In the business category this is extremely important to have a set of ethical meaning in the business. A reasons for many companies collapsing is simple because of their poor management towards there ethical skills. Tall’s blog goes in to detail about to forms of unethical practices in the psychological world. Doctors have always thought outside the box and creating new ideas, but just because it new ideas to create this world better there are a large amount of horror stories that ruined their careers. Tall finds an article about elephants being injected with doses of LSD to crate phobias in infants. This topic was briefly discussed as an example of the horror stories.
A large amount of this blog explains the Milgram experiment, since the destruction from the Holocaust. Dr. Steven Milgram has attempted to find out the Nazi’s and there obedience to authority. Tall ask what is the possible reasoning for so many people to have so much hate or was it just them following orders? Tall ends his discussion by explaining Milgram’s experiment of having two people, one of the participants following orders while the other is getting shocked. Milgram found that majority of the participants chose to shock the other participant. This was noted as unethical because the participant was not informed, Tall says that if they were notified in the beginning Milgram would not have the pure results he got.
After reading this Blog post I seem to look at a lot of things differently. With Milgram accurate results it brings me to a better understanding to what is ethical and unethical in our world. I want to bring up an international subject that leads our next generation to becoming less ethical as the earth gross old.
Military forces and gangs these two are greatly affecting our world as we know it. Thousands of children are serving soldiers in armed conflict and summited to gang affiliation. Some young children are serving the military’s as young as 8 years old. They are so young to be influenced to shoot guns. They fight front line, committed to suicide missions and act as spies to help their military forces. Girls may be forced into sexual slavery. In most cases they are abducted or recruited by force. While others join out of belief that an armed group is there only way of survival. This impacts majority of developing countries. A large amount of South America and Africa force children to participate in there military. While gangs around the world are doing the same thing.
What I’m trying to show is that this unethical way that grows in our world is deeply effecting our children of the next generation. There being taught and threaten to obey orders from military forces and gangs when they should be in school or looking to build a career. There taking children and showing them that harming and shooting people is the right way to do things. Showing a similar way as the Nazi’s did with their troops. Murdering and harming innocent people. For my closer on this blog I just want to notify my readers that having moral and ethics in our world keeps us at peace. While unethical methods puts our world at risk of destruction as the holocaust did.
