LEA316 WEEK 1 ASSIGNMENT
Laws and Rules
Read the following excerpt Adapted from Gregory D. Foster’s “Ethics: Time to Revisit the Basics.”
“People are often told to obey rules. In reality, these rules are not permanent: what is right at a given point in time may be declared wrong at another time and vice-versa. The world changes so rapidly that rules are out-of-date almost as soon as they are created. People cannot rely on established guidelines to determine what they should and should not do.”
In a two- to three-page paper, address the issue above, address the following:
- Determine whether the rules that guide people in their day-to-day lives are too broad for real-life situations. Explain why or why not.
- Explain the difference between a rule and a law.
- Describe an ethical issues associated with a law and a rule to those who support or follow them
