We have more accountability, transparency, more research and more information than ever before. Does the information revolution help us towards a more ethical society? Would love to hear your thoughts?

We are becoming more politically correct and monitored. More ethical? I seriously count it. More calculated haha

Yes we are becoming more ethical as a society, definitely. I don't see how some can be so negative, just for the sake of it. We are becoming more informed. Consider the judiciary system for instance. The death penalty is abolished. We now understand false confessions and how they occur, which is something that incriminates many innocent people every year. We are coming to our senses about human rights. Little by little sense is prevailing. The evidence is everywhere.

I don't think we are. Ethics fluctuate according to the current understanding of right and wrong. They shift from strict to more liberal, then they again tighten here and there because of what the media high light. This ebb and flow is evident throughout civilisation.

In certain parts of the world yes. In the other parts they are still in Middle Ages.

It should, shouldn't it? We learn more about how society works, we have the benefit of surveys, investigation. In this country I feel yes, by and large yes. We are more tolerant, more fair, more informed. I would like to ask the pessimists if they would like to trade with the situation 50 years or 100 years ago!

PC or ethical. I thinks we're becoming more PC, not more moral. There are many unethical things taking place in the name of political correctness.
