As long as people in the public eye do their job well, does it matter what they do in private? by Mind Map: As long as people in the public eye do their job well, does it matter what they do in private?

1. Consider these!

1.1. - Might what they do be against the law/rascist etc? And why would that matter even if it were?

1.2. - To whom might it matter?

1.3. - If it matters, will the people be affected by other people's views?

1.4. - What kind of people?

1.4.1. For the general public

1.4.2. For the person in question

1.5. - What kind of things might they do?

1.6. - What if what they do affects others directly/indirectly?

1.7. - Will it matter if other people have no knowledge or proof of what these people do in private?

1.8. - Is there hypocrisy involved?

2. My Stand

2.1. I Believe that the statement has to be approached in two different aspects, while interlinked, should be considered seperately.

2.1.1.1. Unless their actions in private affect their ability to properly complete their job, they should be allowed their private lives.

2.1.2. Privacy

2.1.2.1. Everyone should enjoy some degree of privacy; even if certain people under public scrutiny would not be able to escape public attention, they should not have to answer to criticsm for every aspect of their life, supposing it does not affect their ability to their job.
