What kind of internet ought we to have? - Practical Ethics (blog)

What kind of internet ought we to have? - Practical Ethics (blog) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Happy internet slowdown day! Here are some apropos practical ethics questions for all to discuss as we sit patiently, waiting for the internet to load. What kind of internet ought we to have? Should sovereign nations decide for themselves what kind of internet they will have, or is this an international issue, requiring cooperation between nations? What do particular internet companies owe their competitors, and more vaguely, the internet? What right does an individual or social entity have to know about or to police the storage and usage of data about that individual or social entity? What right does an individual or corporation have to access data or restrict access to data at certain speeds?

Enhancing Virtues: Caring (part 2) - Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies

Enhancing Virtues: Caring (part 2) - Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

It may be that developing our capacity for empathy is the key to surviving the myriad threats of the 21st century, from war to climate change, as Jeremy Rifkin argued in his 2009 book The Empathetic Civilization[1] and Julian Savulescu and Ingmar Persson argued in their 2012 Unfit for the Future: The Need for Moral Enhancement[2]. Indeed, the growth of civilization over the last tens of thousands of years may have both both depended on, and selected for, the growth of empathy.

The Individual and The Collective - Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies

The Individual and The Collective - Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Which is more important? The Individual, or the Collective? What if it’s neither?  In this multipart Essay, I will explore the worldview underlying my predictions and attempt to illustrate that one can be both a self serving individual only looking out for yourself, while at the same time understanding that it is in your own best interests to be an ethical collectivist, and why long term self interest is best served by reciprocal accountability and an end to secrecy.

5 Ways the Poor Are More Ethical Than the Rich

5 Ways the Poor Are More Ethical Than the Rich | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Many wealthy Americans believe that dysfunctional behavior causes poverty. Their own success, they would insist, derives from good character and a strict work ethic. But they would be missing some of the facts. Ample evidence exists to show a correlation between wealth and unethical behavior, and between wealth and a lack of empathy for others, and between wealth and unproductiveness.

Time for an Ethical Revolution on Social Media, Articles | THISDAY LIVE | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Social media and the technologies that drive it were intended to be a force for social good that expanded the individual’s reach beyond his physical proximity. However, over the years since the emergence of the medium many of its users are beginning to see a negative side of its use amongst young people which must be addressed otherwise it will lead to an erosion of core societal values.

Should we abolish work? - Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies

Should we abolish work? - Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

I seem to work a lot. At least, I think I work a lot. Like many in the modern world, I find it pretty hard to tell the difference between work and the rest of my life. Apart from when I’m sleeping, I’m usually reading, writing or thinking (or doing some combination of the three). And since that is essentially what I get paid to do, it is difficult to distinguish between work and leisure. Of course, reading, writing and thinking are features of many jobs. The difference is that, as an academic, I have the luxury of deciding what I should be reading, writing and thinking about.

Giving The Data Back

Giving The Data Back | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Recently, an article was written about an experiment my company  is running which aims to quantify employees through self-monitoring. To say there was some backlash is an understatement. Faced with accusations of “human rights violations”, and threats that someone was going to (excuse my French) take a “dump on my desk”, I was starting to fear the feds were going to come and prosecute me for mal practice…

RSM Discovery Debate: Ethical Leadership

Ethical leadership is considered to be the nourishment for sustained corporate success.

Catholic Economics, Part 6: How Much We’ve Lost - Aleteia

Catholic Economics, Part 6: How Much We’ve Lost - Aleteia | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Besides the good of the individual, there is a good that is linked to living in society: the common good. It is the good of “all of us”, made up of individuals, families and intermediate groups who together constitute society…To desire the  common good and strive towards it  is a requirement of justice and charity…The more we strive to secure a common good corresponding to the real needs of our neighbours, the more effectively we love them. Every Christian is called to practise this charity, in a manner corresponding to his vocation and according to the degree of influence he wields in thepólis. (p. 7)
