ETHICS and GROUPTHINK

ETHICAL ISSUES: COMMUNITY vs. GROUPS

It’s inevitable that we be involved with others and will both affect and be affected by them.  Each of us operates subjectively using our own five senses plus our intuition, instincts, insights and unique thoughts and reactions.  This makes each of us unique with respect to our personal interaction with the rest of the world, each of whom is as unique as we are.

While you are entitled to your interpretation of what’s happening, others are entitled to theirs, and chances are excellent that they won’t be the same as yours.  Given equal input, each individual may react differently and come to a different conclusion.  In other words, there will be virtually infinite combinations of actions along the line.

In the context of mankind, that’s no problem.  Humanity as an ethical whole will handle whatever its members throw its way.
