The Ethicator

Sunshine bursting through black clouds

Glorious sunshine bursts through black clouds

All my fans seem to be asking me the same question:  Now that you’ve exposed and destroyed your brother Carl’s book, when will start publishing some ideas of your own?  At what point will we get a glimpse into the mind of the angry gadfly whose ideas were stolen and distorted into White Coat Black Hat?

I thought you’d never ask. For years, I’ve been cultivating an expertise in bioethics, primarily through various continuing education courses and extensive emailing with famous philosophers.  Throughout my scholarly work, though, I’ve been frustrated by  the stale, inflexibility of it all. Seriously, I love Aristotle, but let’s face it: The Nicomachean Ethics is pre-Internet thinking.

Enter the Ethicator, an advice column with a new, ground-breaking approach to bioethical questions. The title comes from my term “to ethicate”, a method of moral deliberation that balances traditional moral concerns against new realities, such as the needs of a globalizing market economy and the demands of a cable news and social media-fueled 24 hour news cycle.

Please submit your questions to the Ethicator:  I look forward to them.

    I have a question for The Ethicator. My younger brother is cyberstalking me and says he won’t quit until I send him a check. Do I need an attorney?

      Easy. Just take all the stuff he says online, put it in the New Yorker under your byline, and take credit for all his ideas.

      (Oh, sorry, that’s been done already. I guess you’re fucked.)
