Do you think people engage in moral reasoning primarily in a consequentialist or deontological way? In other words, when faced with major ethical dilemmas or problems, do people consider mostly the consequences of or the intentions behind the actions? Provide an example (or several) from recent history in which very important decisions were made (e.g. when the U.S. decided to engage in a war, response to the pandemic, medical ethics, social justice issues, etc.) and discuss why you think these choices reflect either a consequentialist or deontological stance. Cite the readings we have covered on these topics. If you have examples that suggest an alternative moral theory is at play, defend that interpretation. Either way, be sure to discuss potential problems with assuming a singular moral theory will suffice to solve all ethical dilemmas. Essay should be at least 3 pages typed, double-space, 12-point font, and include an introduction with thesis statement, supporting paragraphs with detailed exegesis (critical exposition) of the problem, and your reasoning to support your thesis.
