Question and answer
2. How can the concept of a national identity both unite and divide people?
In modern times multiculturalism is instituted from the top down as an elitist ruling class tool used to play one or more racial or ethnic groups against another. [ The ensuing cultural melee serves the political designs, economic goals and power needs of elitist rulers and their sponsors. This technique was developed by Marxist ideologues who used multiculturalism in Russia to divide and
conquer resistance to the institution of a communist state. The end result of their successful takeover was the murder of thirty million humans in the Soviet Union alone. Many more elsewhere. ]

User: 2. How can the concept of a national identity both unite and divide people?

Weegy: A strong sense of national identity can unite people by making a group of individuals feel like part of a cohesive whole. [ For example, after the terrorists attacks on 9/11, this country experienced the strongest sense of national identity I have personally ever witnessed. Every car had a flag attached to the antenna, every shop had a collection jar to help fellow Americans, and so on. A strong sense of national identity helped American heal from our wounds. We were all proud to be Americans. However, all of this good feeling had a downside. People who were NOT Americans, especially Arabs, were immediately suspect, an "Us-versus-Them" mentality quickly set in. Mosques were vandalized, threats were made, and a sense of foreboding and prejudice against anyone who looks to be Middle Eastern continues to this day. ]

How do you explain the fact that morally evil people can be highly educated in terms of ethics and religion? In other words, how do you account for the gap that sometimes occurs between knowledge of ethic and being and ethical person?
Weegy: They've never developed an internally set moral compass.A knowledge of ethics and religion and morals means nothing more than the fact that someone has a knowledge of ethics and religion and morals. [ After all, how many folks go through college, and learn everything they can about a particular subject, but haven't enough brains or common sense to actually apply what they've "learned"? So it is with morals. I feel that we can learn "right" behavior, even if we haven't been raised with enough guidance, but at best it'll always be little better than a second language- imperfectly known, imperfectly practiced. But still it'll be better than no knowledge at all. In the end, though, it is only an internally set moral compass that guides us to practice good or evil. That, and a good set of laws for those folks who won't take the hint. ] (More)

In your own opinion, Is it wrong to kill someone in self – defense?
Weegy: 1) I think that you have to separate the legal and the ethical aspect. Or maybe there could also be a religious aspect. [ There are some legal aspects of self defense, and if the deadly force was applied in a situation without extreme danger, or if the degree of violence was not comparable to the threat, you could have a problem. On the other side, you have to see for yourself how your ethics support this act of yours. Did you use a firearm? Why did you have a firearm in the first place? Do you still have one? 2) The ethical problem could possibly be tackled with the support of psychological or religious counseling.

\Is it wrong to kill someone in self – defense?
Weegy: Try to think of it this way. This mugger tried to rob and kill you. So you killed that person to keep them from killing you. But that's not all you did. Since that person is no longer around, they can't rob, beat or kill anyone else. [ So yes, I think God will understand. Besides if you look at the Old Hebrew text of the Old Testament, the word should have been translated as 'Thou shalt not murder', not 'Thou shalt not kill'. While I agree that it is preferable to subdue someone with non-lethal force, sometimes you don't have a choice. In that case, the person who attempted to use violence against you is at fault because had they not chosen to be violent, you would not have had to defend yourself. ] (More)

Should we try to keep people alive at all cost, no matter what their physical or mental condition?
Weegy: Ethical dilemmas about end-of-life care are not uncommon in the Intensive Care Unit, so I’m told. [ For this reason, it is of the utmost importance that upon arrival to the ICU, the medical team establishes (and carefully documents) the patient’s “code status.” That is, whether they are full code (they want all measures taken to preserve their life), DNR (do not resuscitate with CPR), or DNI (do not intubate using a ventilator to assist breathing). If the patient can communicate and is deemed to have decision making capacity, they inform the ICU team of their code status. If not, the patient’s health care proxy tells us what the patient would have wanted. ] User: Should we try to keep people alive at all cost, no matter what their physical or mental condition? (More)
