Arriving in the Library This Week: Personal Ethics

Personal Ethics: And the Future of the World

In today’s world, individuals can make a single decision that can have a profoundly positive or negative affect on a nation, and even on the entire world. If young people don’t know their personal ethics, they cannot instantly, in an emergency situation, do what’s right (according to their standards). As this program shows, since they may even be in a position of power, influence and/or control, their decisions can make monumental differences.

This program was made to help young people examine their personal ethics. It demonstrates effective techniques for finding one’s personal values and standards, and presents some very striking examples of what can happen when people don’t search inside themselves. It allows viewers to understand and articulate their own personal ethics and their ethical standards.

Personal Ethics explores the personal ethical mistakes made at Chernobyl, during the Exxon Valdez disaster, in the lives of gangster rappers, and others, and uses their stories and their experiences to help viewers understand their own ethical values so that they can articulate them and rely on them when needed.
