- The moral philosophy of the principle of utility was by the various parties to justify their actions. The principle of utility is common known as the framework of utilitarianism. The principle of utility implies the moral approach of looking for pleasure and minimal pain. Thus, the parties were focused on gaining more benefits from the events through their actions. This aligns with the expected behavior of persons that they will behave in a manner that promotes their own gains. However, they can still promote the overall benefits to different parties involved. Then parties were forced to act in manner that maximizes pleasure to fulfill their tastes and preferences. They were focused on cooperation with other parties to solve their common problems in the society. It also takes into consideration the interests of all parties. The contribution of each individual leads to an overall good to the parties involved.
- The two alternative moral philosophies include the Immanuel Kant’s framework and golden rule philosophies. The two frameworks affect the outcome of the parties involved in the actions. First, Immanuel Kant frameworks discuss the available needs to create new talents that help people in meeting their obligations. The Kant ethical framework provides that single moral law is appropriate in regulating the actions of people. This leads to the unambiguous application to the aurous aspects of our lives. The parties would have relied on the single moral provisions limiting the exploitation of the other parties. The framework helps the parties to set up appropriate guidelines on managing unethical intentions. The golden rule is another ethical framework that calls for equal value to all persons. It provides that people must value how other people think. The parties involved advocated for improved moral judgment without taking into consideration their personal interests.
