Responding to Threats

In a Business Ethics class, the professor asked, "If someone demands you sleep with them or they will kill your girlfriend/wife, do you do it?"

The ethical answer is obvious: No. Similar to our response to terrorism, we don't do things that are wrong because someone threatens us.

The more important question, and the one that belongs in a class on business ethics, is: What do you do if someone threatens you or a loved one? That question is up for discussion because there is no obvious ethical response.
