CC-by-sa ethify.org & rasos

Who’s the hero? President Barack Obama or Edward Snowden? A short brainstorm. Image if someone you don’t know have a list of all your phone calls inclusive duration and frequency, maybe also the GPS position when you were calling someone, a summary of all your messages you wrote, all the timestamps you used any social media network or even have access to the microphone or camera of your smartphone at night? Isn’t it frightening? Isn’t it alarming that this is reality?

Film Review // Fahrenheit 9/11

CC-by-sa ethify.org & literature

Documentarians always have their own points of view, but Michael Moore takes what he needs to convince his audience of his political opinion. Moore produced this film with the explicit goal to prohibit the reelection of George Bush. The Movie is filled with controversy. As footage he used many cuts of tv-news and ‚personal‘ interviews made by himself with a big portion of dry sarcasm.
The title of the film refers to Ray Bradbury’s 1953 novel Fahrenheit 451, a view of the future United States, drawing an analogy between the burning temperature of paper and the date of the September 11 attacks.

Review Capote

CC-by-sa ethify.org & literature

The film Capote is based on the book “In Cold Blood” that Truman Capote wrote in 1966, it’s a novel, which detailed the horrible murder that shocked the little town of Holcomb in Kansas. The murder happened in 1959; the Clutter family was the victims here, a Kansas farmer, his wife and two kids.

You would think what does this have to do with ethics? This was just the beginning for the writer Truman Capote. If the movie Capote would be mentioned it would bring up disturbing ethical questions. This is because to get his book to be such a best seller, he went through a lot of things that would be unethical to anyone with a sense of ethics.

Rezension zum Buch: "Für die Tonne - Wie wir unsere Lebensmittel verschwenden"

CC-by-sa ethify.org & literature

Welche Fakten führt man zuerst an, wenn man über das Thema Lebensmittelverschwendung spricht? Vielleicht, dass man mit der Menge an verschwendeten Nahrungsmitteln in Europa und den USA alle hungernden Menschen auf dieser Erde dreimal satt machen könnte.1 Oder dass ein Viertel des weltweiten Wasserverbrauchs für den Anbau von Nahrungsmitteln verwendet wird, die später auf dem Müll landen. Möglicherweise auch, dass in Industrieländern etwa die Hälfte aller weltweit produzierten Lebensmittel weggeworfen wird.2
