Currently in my Ethics in Technology class we're covering debates. In the past few weeks, we decided on a topic to present to the class, creating three separate propositions from that topic and then discussed those propositions using various ethical systems. Frankly, most of the topics were really interesting and for the most part everyone did rather well though one thing that I did notice is that people tend to get caught up in their own view of things. They have their own view of the situation and almost anything outside of that view is practically considered evil. So much so that they don't even stop to consider the other side of the issue. This isn't just confined to the classroom however, as you can usually see this kind of behavior clearly exhibited by people in the world everyday. In the real world I find this stance to be a little disappointing. It often seems that people either don't know or don't care about the other side of the issue and frankly it makes their argument weaker as a whole.
