CRW1 Unit 6 Health and Fitness

May 16, 2017

The question below is a controversial moral issue, namely: how much control, if any, should governments have over individuals? Modern political philosophy focuses on respecting rights. At one end of the spectrum are libertarians; at the other are liberals. Libertarians prefer a laissez-faire approach – that government should not interfere in people’s lives and that people should make their own decisions, even if the consequences are harmful. Liberals prefer government intervention such as rules and regulations to minimize detrimental effects on citizens. A tax on products that are bad for health would be supported by liberals to prevent harmful health problems. On the other hand, libertarians would argue that the tax law was an example of paternalism, i.e,government acting like a parent. Libertarians argue that paternalistic laws are not morally justifiable, even to protect people from harming themselves. (Note: On economic issues such as tax, libertarians and oonservatives share common values.)

Students: Do you agree that governments should charge a tax on products that are bad for health? Why / why not? (Note: The background information above on Western morality is not necessary for your answer. You may disregard if you like.)
