Lets ZOOM out…           

10,000,000 times: definition of a child

1,000,000 times: condemned and unforgivable acts, tragic, violent, criminal loss of life

100,000 times: a society outraged

10,000 times: lack of empathy, respect for women, safety, law and order, corruption, sheep mentality.

1000 times: old vs. new, tradition vs. culture, backward vs. forward, pride vs. shame. freedom of choice? Life vs. death.

100 times: economics, arrested development, poverty, disparity, immigration, freedom of movement? Big cities, impoverished villages, inadequate education, superiority, unattended needs, unforgivable deeds.

10 times: hierarchy, excuses, international law, honor, rights (of the child or his victim?), hatred, liberty, passion/drive or the lack of it, selfishness, multiples, numbers, out of sight out of mind, care, opinion, big inefficient systems.

1 time: the gray area- wrong vs. right.

    Noor, this is an interesting format and approach to the question of scale and its relation to ethics. Could you discuss this in class and explain your methodology?
