Ehical compromises

Ethics for the Real World
Ronald A. Howard and Clinton D. Korver
( )

Don’t fall asleep at the ethical wheel

A common human flaw is that for love, money, or other ‘good’ reasons, we often violate our ethics; recognising this failing in us is the beginning of our journey, say Ronald A. Howard and Clinton D. Korver in Ethics for the Real World. “We lie to, deceive, steal from, or harm others. And the cause is usually the same: faulty thinking,” the authors argue. They, therefore, call for ‘ethical reasoning skills,’ lest we get comfortable with transgressions and develop bad habits.
