ANT101 Wk5 Discussion 1 1 Ethics in Anthropology Be sure to watch and read the Miscellaneous Topics at the end of Chapter 9 of Cultural Anthropology Then address the following topic As noted anthropology s work with the military over the years has been wrought with controversy Where do you stand on the issue regarding the use of anthropologists in intelligence gathering for the military Can you come up with a compelling argument based on examples given in the text your understanding of the ethical requirements of anthropologist and from your own experiences understanding of past and present military actions to take a stance on this issue Please use concepts and terminology from the text My Posting This is a topic that requires some serious and in depth thought I believe one major concern is of how much power should our government have for the purpose of gathering intelligence It is true that the number one priority should be in defense of our country but how far into that is reasonable Some people feel that government already has too much freedom in this issue Although I believe our system is the best on this planet it seems sometimes like in order to achieve another level of safety and security some of the basic rights they we have acquired are subject to jeopardy in order to accomplish new rights and protection It is also true that in today s technological world and the rapid development in advancements create an ongoing scenario of new threats To not accept this concept would be foolhardy to say the least When one thinks of government at any level the fear of more control in its hands has a tendency to be pretty scary One of first thoughts that come to mind is the fear of war Whether it be of biological or nuclear possibilities in the end it would be devastating at least What level of moral or ethical values would fulfill the requirements to take such actions Does one view this as for the greater good or what I believe that this is an issue that will be of controversy for many more years to come as it already has been so for the last 30 years or so The pro s and cons of this are endless as the consequences of our actions will be reviewed for centuries to come James
