BEE 299 Lesson 15: Ethics Option 2: MAKING DISTINCTIONS A professional is faced with numerous dilemmas as we have seen and thus we pose a number of questions. These include: Conventional and Reflective Morality - Is what we have always done what  we ought to do? The answer to this is NO. New information can be discovered, or an invention can make a task easier. It would be foolish to not adapt with the changing times. If we knew how to make diesel engines but still used coal and steam power we would be in the wrong. To step away from technology one might justify not changing course of action if the issue is very complicated, and a tough decision might have to be made. An example of this would be going off precedence, but each situation must be evaluated fairly on a case-by-case basis. Morality and Law - Just because it is legal, is it right? The answer to this is NO. The law is in place to guide, but there are often loopholes. It is legal for an 18-year-old man to have sexual relations with a 90 year old woman, but most everyone would agree that it is not right for this to occur. It was legal in Germany for civilians and soldiers to commit horrible crimes. In fact, it was illegal do fail to report certain things such as someone being Jewish or Homosexual. One could counter argue in saying that the law is supreme and if an action were wrong it would HAVE to be illegal.
