Question Description

General TopicIn your post, draw on one of the following readings: 1) Bentham, 2) Kant, 3) Singer, or 4) O’Neill. The general topic is the ethical issues of famine and world poverty. I have provided a prompt below, but you may create your own alternative question.If you create an alternative question, be sure to present your question in your post and explain how it relates to one of the above readings. If you use the prompt, you do not need to answer all of the questions below. In fact, it’s a good idea to focus on one or maybe two of the questions.Only write on one philosopher for your discussion post.Writing Prompt: Starving and Impoverished PeopleWhich ethical principle should be used to understand and deal with the issues of famine and poverty?Does utilitarianism or deontology provide a better normative framework for dealing with the issues of famine and poverty?Is there something special about citizens of one’s own country that gives people more of an obligation to prevent poverty in their home country rather than abroad? What do you think is the best response to Singer’s seemingly “radical” conclusion about how we should change our way of life? Is there any reason to think that the Kantian duty of beneficence doesn’t extend to people who are suffering from famine in other countries?Assignment RequirementsSee the Discussion Post Guidelines for general info on the assignment and example posts: Discussion Post Info & Example.docxThe most important requirements are:write at least a 300 word original post,quote and cite from one of the above course readings (in your original post),use paragraphs in your original post,write at least a 200 word response post.Also Worth Noting You must post before seeing other people’s posts. As a result, you will not be able to edit any posts. (This ensures that you do not submit an empty or extremely short post in order to then copy other people’s work.)If you see something you would like to change or add to your original post, then submit a second post. This will not penalize you, so long as your original post fulfilled the basic assignment requirements. If you submit an empty or extremely short post, then you will be penalized.It’s a good idea to first type your post in a word or google document to prevent accidental submissions.
