You should cite 2 outside sources. They can be from any type of source, but they should provide evidence that aIDs something to the content (dont cite something we already know from the slides that I will upload)
Choose one of the readings from the Right Thing to Do Book and then write on the related series of prompts. ( I will upload file for each subject and the writer can chose from those three options)
Alcohol and Rape, Nicholas Dixon.
Does the consumption of alcohol affect the morality of sex? Should someone be legally responsible for the consumption of alcohol of their sexual partner? If so, in which cases should a person be prosecuted for rape because of the consumption of alcohol of their partner? If not, how would you excuse a case where someone fixes another strong drinks with the intention of getting that personer too drunk to resist? In either case aIDress the morality of sex where both parties have consumed alcohol.
Americas Unjust Drug War, Michael Huemer.
Does Huemer offer a compelling argument that we have a right to use drugs? If so, how far does this right extend? Are there other rights that it balances against? If Huemer does not give a compelling argument for the right to use drugs why not? In this case respond to Huemers claim that it would be wrong to prosecute us for all sorts of things that are bad for ourselves and for others (e.g. like being a jerk).
All Animals are Equal, Peter Singer
Is there any moral justification for eating a factory farmed steak? If so, how would you respond to Singers claims about the moral relevance of suffering and the argument from marginal cases? If not, does Singers argument for humane treatment of animals create a compelling argument for vegetarianism? In other words if we treat them nicely during their lives and slaughter them humanely, can we still eat them?
