Is it possible for a communication to convey a message that is legal, but ethically wrong
In areas where freedom of speech isn't allowed, it's possible for a message to be ethical, but not legal. [ If you took a soapbox to Tienanmen Square in the center of Beijing, China and made a speech on political freedom, you might make an ethical argument but it would be illegal. ]

Consider the list titled “In Depth: Critical Thinking, The Long Version” in Ch.1 of Critical Thinking. What do you consider to be the most important points? Why do you think this?
Weegy: Critical thinking can be seen as having two components: 1) a set of information and belief generating and processing skills, and 2) the habit, based on intellectual commitment, of using those skills to guide behavior. [ [ [ [ It is thus to be contrasted with: 1) the mere acquisition and retention of information alone, because it involves a particular way in which information is sought and treated; 2) the mere possession of a set of skills, because it involves the continual use of them; and 3) the mere use of those skills ("as an exercise") without acceptance of their results. Critical thinking varies according to the motivation underlying it. When grounded in selfish motives, it is often manifested in the skillful manipulation of ideas in service of one??s own, or one's groups??, vested interest. As such it is typically intellectually flawed, however pragmatically successful it might be. When grounded in fairmindedness and intellectual integrity, it is typically of a higher order intellectually, though subject to the charge of "idealism" by those habituated to its selfish use. Critical thinking of any kind is never universal in any individual; everyone is subject to episodes of undisciplined or irrational thought. Its quality is therefore typically a matter of degree and dependent on , among other things, the quality and depth of experience in a given domain of thinking or with respect to a particular class of questions. No one is a critical thinker through-and-through, but only to such-and-such a degree, with such-and-such insights and blind spots, subject to such-and-such tendencies towards self-delusion. For this reason, the development of critical thinking skills and dispositions is a life-long endeavor. ] ] ] ] (More)

Is it possible for a communication to convey a message that is legal, but ethically wrong? Explain your answer.
Weegy: Jokes often don't translate well. I'd stick to comments like, "My, this is a beautiful place." In areas of the world where freedom of speech exists, it's always possible to speak words that are legal, but ethically wrong. [ For example, jokes that are offensive to a particular race, religion or gender would fall into that category. In areas where freedom of speech isn't allowed, it's possible for a message to be ethical, but not legal. If you took a soapbox to Tienanmen Square in the center of Beijing, China and made a speech on political freedom, you might make an ethical argument but it would be illegal. Source: ] (More)

why the government says something is legal to do does not mean that it is ethical
Weegy: Ethical; to do with Ethics. 1. pertaining to or dealing with morals or the principles of morality; pertaining to right and wrong in conduct. 2. being in accordance with the rules or standards for right conduct or practice, esp. [ the standards of a profession: It was not considered ethical for physicians to advertise Ethical basically means to do with, what is right and wrong, based on morality. It would have helped if you had expanded a bit on what context it was used in marketing class, but I can fetch a guess that it has to do with the ethics of marketing, what is right and wrong in marketing, referring either to doing it correctly or not being immoral (i.e. It is not ethical for respected physicians to advertise and endorse products). ] (More)

what are the likes and dislike of the importance of a collaborative environment
Weegy: Celebration of diversity. Students learn to work with all types of people. During small-group interactions, they find many opportunities to reflect upon and reply to the diverse responses fellow learners bring to the questions raised. [ Small groups also allow students to add their perspectives to an issue based on their cultural differences. This exchange inevitably helps students to better understand other cultures and points of view. ] (More)
