Just a few thoughts… Short!
What is cheating?
According to me, cheating can be described as committing to an action which benefits a person, but completely ignores other individuals or public needs.
It is very common in education. Day after day I get skype messages that begin with “ar galėtum padėti..”(could you help me..”) and end with “ar gali padaryti už mane..”(can you do it for me). We even had a seminar against cheating in our university(sadly I did not partake in). We had a poll with questions such as “is it easy to cheat doing exams?”.
Is there a way how to prove the uselessness of cheating for any individual? It is common everywhere, from economics to private matters. Even famous actor Nicolas Cage is cheating taxes!
Why live in a world of cheats?
Why don’t other animals cheat as humans do?
How do people that cheat morally justify it? Or don’t they?
Can cheating be called stealing?
Long time ago, there was a busy activity in my class: during an interval a group of people would gather belongings of their friends, and then later the would be a “lost and found”… Funny game, which most still play. 🙂 An issue(A problema)?
