What are the best- and worst-case scenarios if you choose this alternative?

Does this alternative demonstrate a genuine concern for others affected by the decision, and is the moral agency responding to a perceived need?
Guidelines based on consequences Alternative A Alternative B

Will anyone be harmed who can be said to be defenseless? (paternalism)

To what degree is this alternative based on the moral agent’s own best interest? (ethical egoism)
Which alternative will generate the greatest benefit—or the least amount of harm—for the greatest number of people? Select only one alternative. (utilitarianism)

So, how can I provide you with a tip! I had known or realized that I would have compensated you for both on the assignment you just completed! I'm sorry for the trouble.

OK, I've looked over the threads and answers.


Did you mean the paper on the moral dilemma?

You accepted that one
