The original question for first 2 posts are:

Dealing with ethical dilemmas can be difficult and tricky at best. The interaction between the parties involved and the situation will have a significant impact on the final decision. The below scenario is designed to get you to think about how your personal ethical values might be challenged if you had to make such a difficult decision. Make sure to truly think about your personal value system and be willing to support why you made the decision and why it did or did not cause you to adjust your ethical framework. Additionally, make sure to cite your sources as you convey back your response (for example: say, “according to Dr. Kline’s presentation on Ethical Dilemmas, leaders challenged with an ethical dilemma will …” or “Northouse suggests that…”).

Scenario:

Tony, a data analyst for a major casino, is working after normal business hours to finish an important project. He realizes that he is missing data that had been sent to his coworker Robert. Tony had inadvertently observed Robert typing his password several days ago and decides to log into Robert’s computer and resend the data to himself. Upon doing so, Tony sees an open email regarding gambling bets Robert placed over the last several days with a local sports book. All employees of the casino are forbidden to engage in gambling activities to avoid any hint of conflict of interest.

Tony knows he should report this but would have to admit to violating the company’s information technology regulations by logging into Robert’s computer. If he warns Robert to stop his betting, he would also have to reveal the source of his information.

  1. What does Tony do in this situation?
  2. What are the possible consequences of his choice to report or not report the incident?
  3. How might such a decision require you to amend your own ethical framework?

The original questions for last 2 posts are:

Do the research, to gather the information needed to explain the consequences:

1. What are the consequences of the Cold War?

2. What are the consequences of the Six Day War?

3. What are the consequences of the TET offensive, and the Prague Spring?

Post 1:

I believe that Tony has to fess up to opening Roberts computer, the project was his to complete. I can understand that things get passed over, or not observed until its too late, but maybe a phone call or message to Robert or his boss may have helped. If Tony doesn’t say or do anything, he puts his own leadership into question, because if it is discovered, that he went into the computer and observed gambling by Robert, he is showing that his leadership, and will put himself and Robert on the spot to possibly be fired. If Tony’s ethics are questioned then he needs to step up and explain what and why he did what he did, he may have the wrong opinion of what Robert was actually doing on the sports book. If he has a meeting with his supervisors and accepts blame for his own actions, he may keep Robert off of the hot seat. On another note if he and Robert sit down and speak on the situation, maybe the two of them together can sit and explain both of the stories. If Tony doesn’t say anything to anyone, but Robert it may go unnoticed, but it will eventually come out, and everything we do has a record, so if Tony sent the message back to himself it would show up on some report.

I have been in many situations to where I had to take the blunt of the mistake. I have found it easier and more respected by my supervisors if they know the entire situation.

Post 2:

Tony’s first mistake was logging into Robert’s computer. You should never do that in a workplace because that alone is opening a pandora’s box. He should have waited until the next day to finish his work or should not have waited until last minute to finish it. No matter what Tony should accept the consequence for his actions. First, He should tell Robert to stop gambling and tell him how he knows. Then, If Robert continues to gamble, that is when Tony should report Robert to the higher-ups. The consequence can range from a write-up or being fired. It really all depends on their supervisor or higher up. Either way, you should not base your decisions in a workplace on a consequence, but what is right. Your ethical framework should always be based on what is right or wrong. We learned in the previous Dr. Kline’s lessons that a good sound morale is important in any situation, regardless of the outcomes. Just because you will get in trouble for it does not mean to hold back anything. You should not have done whatever it is you have done. Taking responsibility for your actions has been a life lesson passed down from generations to generations.

The Cold War was a period of indirect conflict primarily between the United States and the Soviet Union. It lasted from just after World War II up to the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. The consequences were many and varied. Perhaps the worst consequence was the rise of nuclear weapons as each country tried to maintain a larger arsenal that the other. Though each nation has now committed to reducing their arsenals, Russia and the United States both possess more nuclear weapons, by far, than the rest of the world. A positive outcome of the Cold War was the Space Race between the two nations which saw everything from satellites to the moon landings as a result.

The Six Day War took place in 1967 between Israel and the combined forces of Jordan, Egypt, and Syria. The war displaced many Arabs from Palestine as it came under Israeli control. The consequences remain with us today as Israeli-Arab tensions remain high. Much of the terrorism in the area is linked to the Arab desire to regain control in Gaza and the West Bank. Another outcome of the war was that it showed that Israel had become a major power in the region in a short period of time.

The Tet offensive was a series of attacks by the North Vietnamese against targets in South Vietnamese. The offensive was meant to force the United States to scale back its involvement in the Vietnam War. On one hand, the offensive was turned back and didn’t succeed directly. However, the coverage of the attacks undermined the American public’s support of the war and did eventually the United States did withdraw from Vietnam.

Prague Spring was a short period of time in 1968 when the Communist leaders of Czechoslovakia eased government control and increased personal freedoms. As a consequence, the Soviet Union invaded the country. The Soviet leaders feared that the political changes were counter to Communist ideals and that it might spread to other areas if left unchecked. The reforms were rolled back and the previous restrictions put into place. A lasting consequence of the attack by the Soviets was the eroded support with previous Soviet sympathizers in the west.

  • The consequences of the Cold War were the defeat of the Nazis and their allies left Europe in ruins, and Europeans struggled to overcome rampant death and destruction. The Allies that were victorious worked to create an effective peace treaty. Disagreements between the Soviet Union and the Western allies very quickly led to an endless Cold War, between these new superpowers. This conflict split much of Europe into a Soviet-aligned Communist bloc or a U.S. aligned capitalist bloc and spurred military, technological and economic rivalries.
  • The consequences of the Six Day War also known as the June War, 1967 Arab-Israeli War, or Third Arab-Israeli War, was fought between June 5-10, 1967 by Israel and the neighboring states of Egypt, Jordan, and Syria. Israel quickly defeated the others and angering the Arab leaders and raising anti-Western feelings in the Arab states. Economics increased the tension between Arab states and the West. OPEC, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, over the years, had watched the price of crude oil steadily decline when compared with the rising price of Western manufactured goods.OPEC decided to reverse the trend by presenting a united front against Western oil companies. Another war followed later years later with a quick victory by Israel, crude oil quadrupled by Arab members of OPEC and stagflation was felt by the United States and other industrialized nations that supported Israel. Unemployment and inflation rose greatly before some recovery begin and was an ongoing process for various countries
  • The consequences of the TET offensive were the Vietcong staged this in January 1968, the Communists’ first big attack on major Vietnamese cities. It was a military failure. The Vietcong, an army of Communist insurgents and guerillas in South Vietnam suffered heavy losses, but the war was far from over as Washington (U.S.) had claimed. The American people grew increasingly tired of the war and pressured their leaders to stop the fighting. President Johnson said he would not seek re-election and called for North Vietnam to negotiate. In 1973 Nixon the U.S. president finally reached a peace agreement with North Vietnam and the Vietcong, that allowed the remaining American soldiers to complete their withdrawal and to resume the war, if the agreement was broken.

Despite the tensions battered western European countries made a remarkable recovery, while building strong democratic institutions and economies. The postwar period was by no means peaceful, Anti-Soviet uprisings in East Bloc countries led to militaries intervening and death and imprisonment for thousands. Some colonial independence movements in the developing world erupted in violence sometimes. Despite the Cold War conflicts, the postwar decades witnessed the construction of a social and political consensus that was relatively stable in both Communist and capitalist Europe. At the same time, new migration patterns, changing class structures, and new roles for women and children had a profound effect on European society, In the decades to come, laying the groundwork for major transformations.

The consequences of the “Prague Spring” in 1968 (named for the country’s capital city) in Czechoslovakia, were the citizens of East Bloc countries sought political liberty. Czechoslovak Communist Party gained a majority and voted out long-time Stalinist leader in favor of Alexander Dubcek, whose new regime launched some dramatic reforms, such as relaxed state censorship and local decision making by trade unions, workers’ councils, and consumers instead of rigid bureaucratic planning. Labeled “Socialism with a Human Face” the reform program proved very popular.

The East Bloc leadership and troops intimidated the reformers and the reform program was abandoned and trying to humanize communism from within came to an end. The Soviets would now follow the so-called Brezhnev Doctrine, the Soviet Union and its allies would have the right to intervene militarily in any East Bloc country whenever they thought it was necessary to try and preserve the Communist rule. This invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968 was the crucial event of the Brezhnev era; it showed how the Communist elite was determined to maintain the status quo throughout the Soviet Bloc and would last for 20 more years. People had to look for a different way to make changes happen for them to show improvement in their lifestyles.
