Ethics Question of Your Day
I've found many, many threads discussing ethics, but not really a catch-all for many different ethics questions.
Here's a quandary I sometimes find myself asking: Suppose one has an opportunity to make a lot of money by being a talk show host, running for political office, or what have you by espousing and supporting political beliefs they find detestable. Would that be wrong? Would it diminish their actual beliefs?
What about a family discussion or a discussion with friends or co-workers? Does one have any sort of obligation to defend their beliefs if they hear them being discussed and subsequently derided? Specifically, say one is of a very liberal bent. If one goes to lunch with his co-workers and those co-workers start discussing abortion and it turns out that all of one's co-workers think abortion is an evil thing that should be made illegal, does one have an obligation to speak up?
