Question description

Post an original response (about 200 words) to the Discussion Area bySaturday, October 5, 2013. Through Wednesday, October 9, 2013, review and provide comments regarding the responses (about 75 words each) to at least two of your classmates.

All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources. Responses and at least one of the replies should contain a reference in correct APA format.

For your assignment, use the information on critical thinking, arguments, and the steps of moral reasoning from the chapter section  "Critical Thinking and Moral Reasoning" to construct an argument that has one of the following as the ethical conclusions:

  1. The Food Stamp program is a moral and just form of redistribution of taxed income, or
  2. The Food Stamp program is an immoral and unjust form of redistribution of taxed income. 

The goal of this assignment is for you to use the steps of moral reasoning to reduce your opinion (on the Food Stamp program) to a statement (either [1] or [2] above).  This statement should be supported by a set of premises or morally reasoned sentences developed as you followed the Steps to Moral Reasoning. Your moral reasoning steps should explain or show how the conclusion is ethically correct.

Be sure to include a discussion of your thoughts on the actual steps of moral reasoning (from the text) that you use. Explain how they support your opinion on either premise 1 or 2.

This is an important exercise because moral reasoning should be the foundation upon which you build your answers to future assignments.
