ETHICAL SCRAPBOOK REVIEW PAPER 2 Abstract This paper will explain and go into detail to explain our Ethical Scrapbook. Everyone has their own opinion when it comes to ethics and what is acceptable behavior. It will explain the differences between being a Good Samaritan, professionals committing crime without considering the result their actions will have on other individuals, acts of vigilantism and if they should be allowed by law, and acts of disobedience.

It is important not to cross the line of the law, even if it would benefit someone else. The major differences came when we were asked about what values we thought were more and less important. The values that were felt to be most important values were family, loyalty, duty, and independence. These values seem to be values that reflect our feelings about those closest around us, so we are looking past ourselves to what is important to others. The values that we felt held the least importance were beauty, recognition, and power. The values that were the least most
