If you have taught or researched professional ethics, whether medical ethics, business ethics, engineering ethics, or one of the others, you are familiar with the typical case study scenario where a professional ethics board must make some morally difficult decision.
What often puzzles me about these sorts of cases is that they are often only made truly difficult by background considerations that are practically salient, but morally insignificant. In particular, I have in mind cases where the moral solution is clear, but things like money and governmental regulations get in the way.
I am not going to argue that these cases are in fact simple. They are not. The background considerations are real and matter. What I will argue instead is that these cases reveal that something quite important is missing from ethics boards: anarchists and anti-capitalists.
