DoingThe Right Thing For The Right Reason

Introduction:

Yourdeed is morally admissible only if others’ doing that action wouldalso be morally admissible. We can promote this thought by differentways. One of the opinions is that, before thinking to perform someact, you should question yourself ‘What if everyone did that?’ .

Virtueethics suggest that right and wrong based on what a `righteousperson` would do. It considers that a deed is right if and only if itis what a righteous person would do in that situation.

Discussion:

Doingthe right thing for right reason is a blessing from God if someone isneeded and you help them out without any greed just like if someoneis hungry and you give him/her your food without any gain.Doing thewrong thing for a right reason is a mistake but not all the time itdepends upon the situation, if you have to save someone life you cando anything to save it, because life is important so you can do theright thing whatever the reason be.There is the old saying that “Theends justify the means”.Often we made some promises to ourselves orothers but sometimes we can’t fulfill them because of some reasonsor conditions, in other words we made false promises a little bitagainst from ethics. According to ethics if you cannot keep yourpromise do not make it, in other hand Utilitarianismsays thatthe right action or deed is one which support to the whole communityor groups of people instead of a single or some specific people .

Falsepromise 1: The desert-island promise

Apilot and his friend are flying across a desert where the plane’sengine suddenly fails and hit the ground (Desert Island). They bothare helpless and stuck on the desert for few days. After several dayspilot’s friend becomes sick and very close to death and the piloteventually rescued. Before his death he asked the pilot that” if Idie and you will survive” then give all my possession to a jockeyclub (over which you have a command) and pilot made promise to him.Pilot thought that if he gives all the money to a charitable hospitalinstead of a jockey club as they really need modern machines andinstruments for their patients, but suddenly an argument develop inhis mind that he promised his dyeing friend to give all the money toa jockey club. In the end he comes with a conclusion that he shoulddonate this money to a hospital as they really need it. Ethics alsosupport this act, as according to utilitarianism theory “that thoseactions are right which cause to help majority of people instead ofown interest or minority people”. Sometimes it’s better to dowrong things for the right reason for the sake of people and it isnot a mistake (Peterson, p.n.d)

Thereis an old saying “If your intentions are good your path will beclear”.

FalsePromise 2: The lying promise to repay a loan

Aperson is facing financial problems and needs money. He knows wellthat he cannot pay it back but he hopes to get the money by borrowingit on the basis of a promise that he will pay it back on the giventime. It is morally wrong and against of rights and virtue of ethicsand you will have to face the consequences as you can’t pay theloan back, no one will trust you again and you will not be able toborrow money next time when you need it. Here the purpose of keepingpromise is self interest.

Maybe the person keeps the promise for today so he can borrow hugeamount in near future and then deceive the person who gave him loan.This kind of people will respect the obligation not because theytrust in the act of promising he keeps the promise as he wants toimprove his character as an honorable citizen. So, next time theywill cheat others easily .Letsuppose it to be a universal law that anyone feels himself in troubleor difficulty, he should be able to promise anything he satisfieswith the reason of not keeping it, the promise itself would becomeuseless likewise in the extreme one might have in view of it, so noone will take promises as serious hence no one will trust each other,they just used the word promise for their benefits.

Conclusion:

Promisesare made to be kept, not to break it for self benefits. In the firstcase the pilot has no intention to break the promise at the time ofpromising and he break the promise for the benefits of needy peoplesnot himself , while in second case the person intentionally deceiveothers as he know he cannot keep his promise to pay back the loan (hedepends on others).
