But despite all our new inventions and ideas that show us how we're better off than the generations before us, have we grown in any other ways?

Decision Making Any decision affecting people has ethical ramifications and virtually all important decisions reflect the decision- maker’s mindfulness and resolution to ethical behavior. This is why it is important to know for yourself how you go about making ethical decisions, or decisions of any kind.
