Ethical Position Paper

This paper will be a discussion of the topic of Self Defense. The type of self defense is from physical harm or danger. This paper will have four sections. First, you will describe what self-defense is and what moral claims people have to defend themselves, others, or their property. Second, you will discuss what types of force are moral to use in self-defense and when force is moral to be used. Third, you will provide descriptions of how your proposed approach to self-defense works. This will be your description of proper and improper use of self-defense. Finally, you will describe how your approach to the issue would change the way self-defense takes place in society.

Make sure you address the issues here in the appropriate sections of your paper.
