Blog Bite - Pro Ethics
In a cultural climate of vitriol and virtue signalling, it is good to be reminded of our shared values.
I believe that we all want to live in a world of reason, respect, and freedom.
How we do this is a matter of debate, and debate is good.
When we cannot have opposing ideas of how to live life, our best ideas aren't allowed the room to grow and to flourish.
It is ironic that the latest sacrifice on the alter of absolute agreement with government policy is an ethics professor.
A teacher of what the Merriam-Webster dictionary defines as, "the discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation."
Please watch and spread this short and very moving recording from Dr. Julie Ponesse from Huron College at the University of Western Ontario.
She was fired shortly after this.
I don't believe that any of us really want our society, any society, to be one of absolute compliance and freedom from choice.
If you agree with her stand, add the hashtag #IStandWithJuliePonesse
Bonus assignment: Ponder the question, is it ethical for YouTube to remove this video?
