Using academic scholarly research tools, find a current event article that addresses an ethical dilemma from the past five years and annotate it thoroughly. What are the key points to the article? Summarize the dilemma. What are the key terms of the article? What conflicts or controversies does it raise? Where can you offer analysis or an original point of view? Once you have a handle on the article and your reaction to the issues it raises, use it as a foundation to:
Summarize your selected current even and ethical dilemma in 2-4 paragraphs.
Apply Kant’s Categorical Imperative to the problem you highlight.
Apply any other method you have encountered in lecture material and the readings to help develop your analysis.
Conclude with a recommendation for a resolution.
Follow the format requirements: Your paper should be 3 pages (title and reference pages not included in page count). You MUST provide the source of the foundation dilemma, and thus this paper will require 1 reference using at least 1 correct in-text citation (indicating quoted or paraphrased material from the article and where to locate it). Use APA format in citing the source. Refer to course resources for details and help in achieving APA style
