This paper reviews the main ethical issues surrounding modern technology: genetics, space, molecular, mass communication, mass transportation, and defense technology. The author stresses that it is possible to decide upon a universally acceptable ethical solution using the basic ethical principles, such as "it is wrong to steal" or "it is wrong to lie," as a guideline. The paper relates that genetic ethics needs to guide the research around human cloning, stem cells, the human genome, and genetic engineering.

From the Paper:

"How has the internet affected our lives? What place does surveillance technology have in our society? Should humans be cloned? Should we engage in stem cell research? How should we control the pollution that our technology has created? These are all pressing questions that are at the forefront of technology today. With increased technological capabilities, increased ethical issues have arisen regarding these technologies. It has been said that with great power comes great responsibility. This is very true of our situation today. With our rapid increase and advances in technology over the past one hundred years, our power as a species has increased. However, this power has also increased our responsibility toward ourselves, each other, and our planet at large."
