Agreement Breaker or Big Money MakerWhen it comes to the issue of whether or not it is ok for someone the knowingly aid someone in breaking an agreement I feel it depends on the risks at stake for people not knowing what the person has to say For example if I had an agreement with a co-worker to not tell anyone that I had cancer I would be very angry if someone coerced that person into telling everyone But on the other hand if I made that person promise not to tell anyone about a possible danger to all the other workers and someone coerced them into saying something it would be far better for all the workers to know about a possible danger even if I did not want them to know In other words the happiness that comes from the workers knowing there is a problem and being able to fix it would far out weigh my anger towards the person who broke the agreementIn the case of big tobacco I think there is a difference People already know that smoking is bad for you and can cause lung cancer but they continue to smoke The idea that because the people now know that big tobacco adjusts the levels of nicotine in their cigarettes does not mean people will be angry enough to quit The only reason why it would be important to know that big tobacco adjusted the levels of nicotine in their cigarettes would be in order to sue them for the fact that they knowingly try to get people addicted to a product that will kill them But that money should be going to one place and that would be to pay for all the doctors bills of the people dying of lung cancer from being addicted Utilitarianism would have to agree that the happiness of the people that dont have to pay more taxes to support the people on
