Yet, what is hubris exactly? Hubris is just another word to describe arrogant or over-prideful, which Oedipus definitely was. After finding out that he had really committed the crimes which his prophecy had predicted, he stated “Oh God! I think I have called down upon myself a dreadful curse not knowing what I did!” As shown, he even realizes what grave consequences followed his life of incest. Although he was ashamed of the life he had been living, he realized that the mistakes were his own, and no one can bear the weight but him.
If we want to limit speech because of harm then we will have to ban a lot of political speech. Most of it is useless, a lot of it is offensive, and some of it causes harm because it is deceitful, and because it is aimed at discrediting specific groups. It also undermines democratic citizenship and stirs up nationalism and jingoism, which results in harm to citizens of other countries. Even worse than political discourse, according to Kateb, is religious speech; he claims that a lot of religious speech is hateful, useless, dishonest, and foments war, bigotry and fundamentalism. It also creates bad self-image and feelings of guilt that can haunt persons throughout their lives.
Proctor and Hale, are similar because they both see the genuine motivations behind the accusations and struggle to defend the people being harmed. Despite these similarities, they also have major differences in their nature; since they have contrasting levels of devotion to Puritanism and to the moral principles they live by. Reverend Hale and John Proctor are both similar because they discover the malicious intentions of the accusations, and tries to avert further damage dealt by these false accusations. When John first hears about the trials, he doubts the legitimacy of the court proceedings. He even considers going to Salem to persuade the Deputy Governor from convicting innocent people.
This knowledge and understanding impelled by the desire to show off or cunning can be. To create this type of disagreement in that selfishness, totally reprehensible or selfish desire for truth and righteousness does not support the concern that suppresses. Satan deceived and led him to believe that such was egoism. God says in the Quran: It is your personal choice, not a messenger from God that you came up with something, so your arrogance gloried, and some of them you (87 2) will kill the others have not called impostors. egoistical desires of the following as a result, many people have turned to acting justly: You (135 4) if deviation from justice, do not follow your own desires.
Eichmann’s banality made him no less guilty (Arendt Eichmann). What Arendt did do was open a massive divide between two versions of a painful past: a monstrosity or a normality. Arendt’s critics wanted Eichmann to be the clearest verdict of evil that history has put on record. Arendt disputed not that he was evil, but rather the nature and consequence of such evil. Arendt casts Eichmann into a theory of evil and a narrative of history which, to many of her counterparts, is not only outrageous but perhaps terrifying.
And it is also an irony of the hypocrisy of adult world. Those two swindlers could easily cheat all the ministers because that they all not willing to admit themselves were foolish. The aim of the story is to criticize the hypocrisy of adult, and to highlight the importance of the honesty. This story warns us that we have to ponder over other’s opinions dialectically. And when we face our weakness frankly, we can make improvement.
When the court itself appoints an expert, the fact finder may find him/her almost infallible and may neglect the consideration of other factors when finding out the truth (McCahey, & Proman, 2011). In reality, mental health professionals should be aware and inform the court that they cannot provide "definite answers" especially to the question, "Did the defendant, at the time of the crime, appreciate right from wrong"? (Meyer & Weaver, 2006, Ch. 2). Thinking that these experts can offer absolute answers that determine incapacity or insanity "may be misleading, probably unethical, and downright untruthful" (Meyer & Weaver, 2006, Ch.
Antony by turning Brutus and Cassius into villains. He sparked rage into the minds of the plebeians and then turned that rage against the conspirators by accusing them of being high and mighty against the emotions of the people. He states that he wishes not to go against the wishes of “honorable” men which has been proven at this point to be an ironic statement. Antony’s statement goes further to insight rage in the minds of the plebeians with the idea that to mourn their

Type 1 terrorism or what Lizardo and Bergesen termed as ‘terror in the core’ is perpetrated by core actors against core government organizations (Bergesen et al. 2003, 163). These core- based terrorist organizations have ideological grievances against a particular core government (Bergesen et al. 2003, 166). This means that the perpetrators of this type of terrorism stand against the present state organizations in the core which they usually see as too corrupt and does not respond to the people’s needs and grievances as citizens.
