In: New York University Education Quarterly, 9(1): 25-38. Fall 1977. “Can Schools Teach Kids Values?”, in: Today’s Education, 66(3): 28-38. September-October 1977.
Stages of moral development
Lawrence Kohlberg suggests that children move from an amoral stage toward ever greater concern with the needs and feelings of others, a sense of justice, reciprocity, and equality. Children at first believe in doing what is right only because (and as long as) violations entail punishment or conformity generates pleasure. As their capacity for morality develops naturally with age and is developed by education, they learn to behave in ways that will gain the approval of others.
Finally, at the highest levels, they come to understand the intrinsic virtue of being law-abiding and ethical.
It is useless to try to get children at the most primitive stage of moral development to understand principles or modes of reasoning at the highest level. At the same time, it is
possible, through proper classroomndialectics, to help childrcn move up one stage at a time in their Icvcls of moral reasoning.
Schools need to provide more moral education. The controversial question is what is to be thaught, and how. Various groups use different words to signal thcir views regarding the underlying sources and appropriate remedies for the nation’s ethical malaise. Etzioni sketches some theories and techniques competing with one another to shape how schools are to take on moral education. He concludes that most schools cannot proceed very far in promoting values not shared by the community at large. Before the schools can effectively provide moral education, the surrounding
society must care about morality and work to reform itself. All concerned have to get together to focus on the question: “How can our schools be restrucfured to make them sources of ethical experiences rather than, as they too often are, training grounds for cheating, intolerance, coping with bureaucratic or arbitrary authority?’

Powerful economic actors may use their power not only in the marketplace but also to achieve economic ends by influencing the direction of government actions. Economic actors command political power as well as economic power. Aside from distortions that government interventions causes in the market place, resources are wasted in competing ovcr who will gain the favors. According to Etzioni this competition adds nothing to the efficiency or productive capacity of the economy.

Communitarians charge liberal philosophers with an excessive focus on individual rights and with neglect of obligations to
the communityh, to shared virtues and common purposes. While liberals evince a measure of commitment to a moderate vision of community, they contend that communitarians provide an insufficient basis for individual rights. Communitarians, in turn, indiretly acknowledge the need to ensure these rights in
order to avoid collectivism. Out of these charges and countercharges, a synthesis begins to suggest itself.

 Socio-Economics Revisited
In: Sociological Inquiry, 61(1): 68-73.
Talcott Parsons wrote an important and still relevant contribution to the critique of the utilitarian, rationalist, radically individualist paradigm which still dominates scholarship, especially economics, today. Parsons advised economists to stop ignoring the broader societal context of which the economy is only a sub-system; economic actors are not impersonal, fully independent individuals but should be viewed as people with internalized moral and social values, values which
cannot be accounted for as mere external, environmental constraints. Parsons, however, paid little attention to the role of power in the market. Socio-economics treats the leverage of ‘interventionist power’ (large corporations and labor unions) as significant, and seeks to grow as a coherent alternative to the neoclassical paradigm.

Now, to complete the ransformation Etzioni argues that educational practices and job structures must be modified. A change in paradigms is not merely an intellectual and social-philosophical matter, paradigms have infrastructures that affect their dynamics.

Most Americans feel alienated from national politics as currently practiced, and there is a need to find ways to reinvolve them. Simply changing the cast of characters may not do the trick. Public-opinion polls show a deep sense of disaffection that reaches well beyond the candidates themselves.There are long-established precedents for the idea of adding some elements of direct democracy to our representative government (such a referenda). Etzioni argues that electronic town meetings, though hardly a cure for all the ills of our democracy, could be arranged in ways that would avoid several of the pitfalls against which critics correctly warn.

 The Socio-Economics of Work
In: Frederick C. Gamst (Ed.)  Meanings of Work, Considerations for the Twenty-First Century. Albany: SUNY Press, pp. 251-260.
Socio-economics is a discipline that proceeds along three major axes. (i) Instead of assuming that people are maximizing one over-arching utility, their satisfaction, it is assumed that they respond to two or more irreducible sources of valuation: their satisfaction and their moral values. (ii) Instead of assuming that people choose their means rationally, it is assumed that much of their decision making is affected by emotions and values, and that their ability to deliberate and process information (to act rationally) is rather limited. (iii) Instead of assuming that the individual is the center of the social universe, it assumes individuals act as members of groups and hence many variations in their behavior are to be explained on the collective level.
Most neoclassical economist view work as ‘labor’ (sheer drudgery, without intrincis rewards). “Socio-economics assumes that much work, albeit not all, contains an important (though varying) amount of intrinsic rewards.” People work for a variety of motives. From a humanitarian viewpoint it is unproductive, costly and unappealing to treat all people in all jobs as if they are laborers rather than workers.

Communities are constitutive elements of a more encompassing community of communities, a society of which they are parts. They have a firm commitment to the shared framework. According to Etzionie there are two major dangers against which the vision of a community of communities seeks to guard: (i) the danger of tribal warfare, and (ii) the danger of cultural impoverishment and rebellion against an obsolescent and imposed creed or canon.

 Civic Repentance: Just and Effective
Introduction to: Amitai Etzioni / David Carney (eds.)  Repentance: A Comparative Perspective, pp. 1-20.
Repentance is a prominent idea in religions ranging from Judaism, Christianity, and Islam to Buddhism and Hinduism. But there is
no consensus about what someone who has violated society’s rules must do in order to be fully restored to the community. For example, is remorse the same as repentance? Who deserves a second chance? “We condemn people who violate our values; we drive politicians out of public office; we send those who offend our sensibilities into the social isolation of Coventry; we incarcerate criminals. Yet even after these offenders have paid their dues to society in full, there are still no established social processes through which they can be restored to full and legitimate membership in the community.”

Communitarians argue that democratic societies require a core of shared values. If democracy is merely a procedure that allows individuals who have different ultimate normative commitments to work out shared policies, then that polity will lack in legitimacy. According to Etzioni reasoned deliberations are not sufficient if a community seeks to collectively formulate shared values. He explores the additional processes that are needed: moral dialogues.

 Medical Records: Enhancing Privacy, Preserving the Common Good
In: The Hastings Center Report, 29(2): 14-23. March-April 1999.
Personal medical information is now bought and sold on the open market. Companies use it to make hiring and firing decisions and to identify customers for new products. The justification for providing such access to medical information is that doing so benefits the public by securing public safety, controlling costs, and supporting medical research. But the privacy of medical records, which contain highly intimate informatie that people legitimately are keen to keep from others, often is violated. The notion that one’s personal medical information could be obtained by others not involved in the person’s care and not authorized to receive it, and used to harm the person, is frightening.
 Less Privacy is Good for Us (And You)
In: Privacy Journal, pp. 3-5. April 1999.
Etzioni argues that we have to treat privacy for what it is: one very important right, but not one that trumps most other considerations, especially of public safety and health. For instance, as biometrics catches on, it will practically strip all citizens of anonymity, an important part of privacy. But while biometrics clearly undermines privacy, the social benefits it promises are very substantial.

 Face-to-Face and Computer-Mediated Communities — A Comparative Analysis - with Oren Etzioni
In: The Information Society, 15(4): 241-248.
The authors address an oft-asked question: Can virtual communities be real, have the same basic qualities as face-to-face communities? Community is defined as a nonresidential social entity with two attributes: (i) a web of affect-laten relationships that crisscross and reinforce one another, rather than simply a chain of one-on-onerelationships (bonding), and (ii) a measure of commitment to a set of shared values, mores, meanings, and a shared historical identity (culture).

In: Socio-Economic Review, 1(1): 105-118.
Human nature is conflicted between these two principles or superutilities: the pleasure principle and our moral obligations.
Much of what we do reflects this inevitable tension between things we would like to do and things we ought to do. And Etzioni demonstrates that this generalization is supported by many empirical observation. “People have a strong moral commitment, a powerful factor which outweighs the pain
they have to endure” /13/. Etzioni illustrates that there is a continual conflict and tension between self-interest and the pleasure principle on one hand, and powerful moral commitments on the other. The starting hypothesis of socio-economists is that people are conflicted. This is the first of six sets of core principles for a socio-economic paradigm.

 Europe, A Beautiful Idea
Text of presentation by Etzioni at September 7th conference at the Hague.
Europe is for Etzioni a beautiful idea: “I salute the new Europe as a model to the world from the bottom of my heart”. There never was in the history of the world another group of nations that have come together first and foremost to swear off war, to create the conditions under which nations that devastated each other for generations — will become members of one community. Europe now is the continent most deeply committed to human rights and a democratic form of government. It sets a model to the world by spending little on armament and much on social services to its people, and, by opposing armed interventions in the lives of others, urging peaceful solutions in other parts of the world. Communities-are not merely places in which people share bonds of affection and affinity, in which they merely care for one another. Communities are also social entities that share a moral culture, a shared set of core values, a social space in which people have not only rights which must be respected but also responsibilities to one another and to the common good.

 Commentary on a Communitarian Approach to International Relations - with Derek Mitchell
In: The Good Society, 14(3): 22-23.
We are moving slowly, haltingly, two steps forward one black toward a global community that has an increasingly important set of shared values, norms and institutions. But we are not moving from a world composed of states to one global state. Nations will continue to play an important role in the evolving global community. However, nations will increasingly become parts of a more encompassing whole; they will share sovereignty and loyalties with higher level, supranational entities (the EU is the greatest experiment in this). The central question is “whether the global state will evolve along similar lines to those of the nation state”.

 Leaving Race Behind: Our growing Hispanic population creates a golden opponunity
In: The American Scholar, 75(2): 20-30. Spring 2006.
One of the great virtues of America is that it defines individuals by where they are going rather than by where they have been. Achievement matters, not origin. The national ideal says that all Americans should be able to compete as equals, whatever their background. American society has been divided along racial lines since its earliest days. Racial characterizations have trumped the achievement ideal; people born into a non-white race, whatever their accomplishments, have been unable to change their racial status. Worse, race has often been their most defining characteristic, affecting most, if not all, aspects of their being. On the one hand, we continue to dream of the day when all Americans will be treated equally, whatever their race; we rail against those who discriminate according to race in hiring, housing, and social life. At the same time, we have ensconced in law many claims based on race: requirements that a given proportion of public subsidies, loans, job training, educational assistance, and admission slots at choice colleges be set aside for people of color. People have grown accustomed to thinking about America in black and white. Hispanics complicate this simplistic scheme: they do not fit into the old racial categories. Some Hispanics appear to many Americans to be black, others as white, and the appearance of still others is hard
for many people to pigeonhole.

“To regulate or not to regulate — that is not a question. There never was a free market, and even if one could be constructed, nobody would want to live with it. Throughout all of modern economic history … government has set limits on the market. Before that, there were no markets in the sense in which we use this term. All that has changed ar the degrees and kinds of regulations.” Free markets exist only in some rather simplistic mathematical models favored by many economists.

 The Capture Theory of Regulations — Revisited
In: Society 46: 319-323. July-August 2009.
Since the 2008 financial crisis muchattention has been paid to the debate between those who call for more regulation of the private sector in order to protect the public good, and those who claim that such regulations would do further damage to the economy by unduly constraining business. Etzioni refocusses this debate about regulation by examining an alternative criticism: the theory of regulatory capture. This theory argues that regulations are routinely and predictably ‘captured’ and manipulated to serve the interests of those who are supposed to be subject to them, or the bureaucrats and legislators who write or control them. Etzioni demonstrates that regulatory capture is widespread and takes a variety of forms.

 Is Transparency the Best Disinfectant?
In: Journal of Political Philosophy. June 2010.
Transparency is generally defined as the principle of enabling the public to gain information about the operations and structures of a given entity. Transparancy is a highly regarded value, a precept used for ideological purposes, and a subject of academic study. Etzioni puts a critical question on the table: does transparency constitutes a reliable mechanism of promoting good governance and sound markets under most circumstances — or is it a rather weak means that itself relies on other forms of guidance and can supplement regulation but not serve a main form of guidance.

 Is China a responsible stakeholder?
In: International Affairs, 87(3): 539-553. May 2011.
China has recently been criticized for not being a responsible stakeholder, not being a good citizen of the international community and not contributing to global public goods — acting as a free-rider. Etzioni explores the application of the concept of stakeholding and what it entails to China’s international conduct. He applyies sets of criteria to evaluate whether China is acting as a responsible stakeholder in the international system. For Etzioni the concept of stakeholder is a highly communitarian. It holds that while the members of a given community are entitled to various rights, these go hand in hand with responsibilities for the common good. Communitarian economists have argued that the corporation should be viewed as belonging not solely to the shareholders, but to all those who have a stake in it and are invested in it, including the workers, its creditors and the community in which the plants are located. Etzioni concludes that China is a legitimate regional power, but surely not a responsible stakeholder; but then, few nations are.
 Citizenship in a communitarian perspective
In: Ethnicities, 11(3): 336-349. September 2011.
A good citizen accepts several basic responsibilities toward the common good of the nation, but is otherwise free to follow his or her own preferences. Thus all citizens may be called upon to serve in the armed forces or national service, be expected to vote and to serve on juries and obey the laws while having the freedom to worship as they wish, maintain secondary loyalty to their country of origin, and so on.

 The Private Sector: A Reluctant Partner in Cybersecurity
In: International Engagement on Cyber IV: 69-78.
The private sector should be keen to protect its computers and networks from cyber-attacks by criminals and foreign agents. After all, hacking has caused considerable losses of trade secrets and other proprietary information. Cyber-attacks can take a kinetic form, which can harm the equipment and facilities —such as the national electrical grid— of those attacked. However, the private sector is far from rushing to protect itself from such attacks. The reasons for this reluctance range from the understandable pragmatic to the ideological.
