Checking the Rationalizations

Most of my day has been devoted to marketing two classes (more on those later) and preparing part of a new class. The latter has involved reviewing ethical decision making steps as well as cases. 

At one point there was a quick review of how grossly unethical organizations and individuals justify their conduct. The justification of the unjustifiable has long been of interest to me since in many cases it involves mass delusion and invariably raises the question of how otherwise intelligent people can fall into such traps.

The list of potential rationalizations grows.
