contemporary issues for week 10

In week 10 lectures continued about the contemporary issues. we have learnt 5 more types of contemporary ethical issues. They are; same sex marriage, animal right, internet privacy, death penalty and insider trading.

Based on what I understood about same sex marriage is, it is a same gender marriage. Actually, this kind of marriage is illegal in some countries.  In Maldives, same sex marriage is not allowed, but there are a few lesbian and gay relationships among teenagers. Most of them just want to have a relationship. As we know marriage should be male and female. Same sex marriage is wrong and it is unethical nature. According to my opinion if this becomes legal then in a few day we can find same sex marriage common in the environment and after a few days the population won’t increase.

Every animal has the right to be respected. I think this is the reason why some of people are a vegetarian. They do not eat animals because of sympathy. However this doesn’t mean everyone should be vegetarian. It depends on people. 10 December is an International Animal Rights Day, so we should respect for those who are respected animal. Might be we should not kill any animal for this day. Sometimes, people use animal as an entertainment. According to my opinion animals need to be cared always not only one the 10th of December.

Internet privacy means desire or mandate of personal privacy with respect to transaction or transmission of data via the internet. Privacy protects us from abuses by those in power even if we are doing nothing wrong the time of surveillance. Surveillance is the monitoring of the behavior, activities, or other changing information; usually people do these things for the purpose of influencing, managing, directing, or protecting. For example, in Facebook we want our own privacy and we can protect our account.

Death penalty or capital punishment is a legal process whereby a person is put to death by the state as a punishment for a crime. Let say, if she or he has killed someone, what is the suitable action they need to face? For me, the death penalty should be done for those who make bad crimes. Actually, crimes are known as “capital crimes” or “capital offenses”. But, not all death penalty are fair.

What is insider trading? Insider trading is like we use others information for our own benefit. After the explanation, I can understand that insider trading is like when we work with a company like Digi, Celcom or Maxis Company, we will have some information about the company. But, after we stop working, is it possible if we want to use or we need to ask the permission first? It is depend also how they use the information. Actually, it is not ethical towards the owner of company if we use their information without permission. Some company, the might take an action as a punishment.

There are a lot of cases about unethical behavior that happen nowadays. So, we should try to have more privacy  in order to have a good safety.
