TED ÇORUM COLLEGE / 10-A March With Times… Metin Toprak KIRIŞ 68 Ethical rules are a part of science as they are a part of life. Scientific researches cannot be done if a scientist doesn’t know the previous researches. But we all have a question: Can these ethical rules stay the same in the future? Humanity is facing a lot of problems with the rapid development of technology. Phenomena such as hunger, drought, lack of water, wars are destroying humans mentally and physically. Also, the race between governments is damaging this ethical system, too. In today’s world there are a lot of things which are non-ethical for humans; for example, genetically edited child. Topics like this are non-ethical because they make a bigger financial difference. But in a future full of crisis, like extinction, we may have a different point of view. Dilemmas like this form the ethical rules. Governments make agreement about ethical rules but a lot of political situations can block these agreements. With the rapid development in medical science there are some technologies which could make humans’ life longer. But if these technologies won’t be available for every single human being, that would destroy the entire justice system. As we can understand from this example, people are making these rules, not governments themselves. Governments are talking about these ethical rules because they want to control their people. Also, in the future, governments have to make more audit about ethical rules; the reason why they have to do it is technology. Technology is limitless but rules have boundaries. Ethical culture is changing with the hopes and lives of humans. I don’t know how much this system which is trying to set rules with biased institutions can survive. As a result, ethical rules have to be in our lives in the future as it is now. If we don’t follow these rules, we will be in trouble. But if the good people keep believing in, hope, peace and humanity will continue to exist.
