In my opinion, it was totally unethical for Ben Ross, the instructor to use his power for the influence of the students adopt the authoritarian way of leader and autocracy. In this way, he imposed very challenging behavior to the students through which they will not enjoy democracy and freedom in leadership. I think this was good to teach the students simply because they will capture and develop the culture of dictatorship type of leadership. If I were a teacher I would have approached the topic in a better way. One of the things I would make sure I would make sure I teach the students the challenges that can be brought about by imposing a lot of the obedience to the leadership. In fact, I would have taught them that leadership is a matter of discussion and sharing of ideas other than imposing a high level of obedience as taught by Ben. There are very better ways of making the norms for each group of the individuals.
In my opinion, before making any or creating the norm in an ethical group of the individual I would rather consult and consider their like’s dislikes. Changing the norms mixes individuals involved way of looking thing. They may end up being confused on what is good or bad for the imposed changes on the norms. The best thing to make sure the group is kept precise without any form of the hostile environment for any given individual is by making sure everyone is involved and the ideas of every person involved in the group chance to express their views based on the area concern in the communication group in the class. Just as in the Laurie in the movie The wave, there is always a better place that as the leader of the group to connect all the members of the group but not making myself as a supreme leader which can subject other members of the group more so in participation.
