Argument from Injustices Continued  REALLY IMPORTANT!  moral obligation to have affirmative action even if costs outweigh the benefits  cutting a check could be an inadequate form of compensation b/c it wouldn’t provide confidence, satisfaction, sense of community, nor the skills that a job provides with experience  problems with this argument: o The wrong person is compensating idea o The wrong person is compensated idea Learning Objectives: 1. Be able to define “absolute poverty” and “relative poverty” 2. Learn some facts about poverty 3. Understand Singer’s argument in “Rich and Poor” I. The Singer Principle a. “If it’s in our power to prevent something very bad from happening, w/o sacrificing something of comparable moral significance, we ought to do it.” b. Application: i. The death of a child is very bad ii. You can prevent it w/o sacrificing anything of comparable moral significance (yes, this includes ruining expensive shoes!) iii. You should save the child! c. Poverty i. 22,000 children die each day due to poverty-related causes (UNICEF) 1. poverty and malnutrition 2. 1,100 Sandy Hook shootings everyday ii. 2 types: 1. Relative Poverty a. poorer than the people around them b. Many poor Americans live in relative, NOT absolute poverty 2. Absolute Poverty a. lacking enough money for basic needs (food, clothes, shelter, etc.) b. World bank defines absolute poverty as having less than $1.25 purchasing power per day iii. What can we do? 1. donate to Oxfam and UNICEF to save lives! **When you have doubts about Singer’s argument, look back to the “child-drowning-in-the-pond” example!!!
