This week's reading in on the future. I do believe that ethics change over time. Certainly this article talks about ethics changing and has good examples, in general. http://www.rationalimmigration.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=265:do-ethics-change&catid=42:latest-news&Itemid=80
For this week try to imagine 20 years would how ethics could change for the role of the emergency manager. Give one example and state why you believe things would change. For example if you think that we are going to move to a limited government that maybe ethically the Federal Government would have to train and empower local and NGO to support disaster or if you think that EM will focus more on disadvantaged and protected populations as a core service? No right or wrong answer, however you to guess where our society is heading and how that impacts the EM field.
