Questioning the Media: Catorce

Q: What is the difference between making an ethical decision and making a moral decision? How can it be problematic to make a moral decision? Can a decision be ethical without being moral?

A: Morals depend on the values of the individual while ethics seek the most “rational” decision, even if they aren’t typically accepted among the majority affected. Those who make decisions gearing more towards their morals and values are seen as if they are putting their feelings and emotions first, having a more biased opinion. Ultimately sacrificing the majority for a few. Can a decision be ethical without being moral? Depends on who you ask I would assume. I believe it can. An “ethical” decision may result in compromising a few to spare a lot. Those affected don’t get to choose, how is that right? But it makes sense. Right?
