Hence, they did deserve it when you look at what the wooers did and that the hand maidens supported their bad decisions. Furthermore, the punishment was not too severe because Odysseus was basically saving a life for a life. They were going to kill Telemachus so Odysseus killed them instead. So the punishment of death was not too severe on the wooers. Though it may have been a little harsh for the hand maidens that went along with the
In “Harrison Bergeron” and “The Possibility of Evil” a common theme is eliminating the evils of the world. In “Harrison Bergeron” society makes everyone handicapped to eliminate evils of the world that comes from being better than one another. “The Possibility of Evil”, demonstrates Miss Strangeworth’s feelings about the evils of the world. She feels as if it is her duty to fix the evils of the world. As it states in the story, “but as long as evil existed unchecked in the world, it was Miss Strangeworth's duty to keep her town alert to it.” They are similar because of this ideal of fixing the world's problems and making them obsolete.
Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore. This could relate to our society now days with what our thoughts are with situations and decisions being morally right or wrong. People have different a different view and perspective on certain things but Montag’s view on this situation was that he needed to kill Beatty for many different
Francis follows this pattern, thinking that because he’d done something wrong (leaving his family), he does not deserve to go back home. He reasons that staying away would be the best, and further, the right thing to do. Francis seems to have a judgmental eye as well, determining that the person who hit his friend, Rudy, in the head should also be prosecuted. Francis delivers a blow to the man. Most likely, the blow led to the raider’s death.
Equality believes wholeheartedly in individualism and the concept of preference which relates strongly to judging others’ true intents and motives. Rand’s short essay explains that, while it is not something many would like to believe of their loved ones, many times people are not simply mistaken or misinformed, but rather know the evil in their actions and proceed to carry them out regardless (Rand, Paragraph 14). While it is true that some members of the Council have been brainwashed and truly believe what they say, the original intent of the many strict laws in place were malicious. Looking in at the society from the outside provides an objective point of view that makes clear that the statutes in action are there to control the citizens and not to help or protect
People believe that if a murder takes this rights from a person, why should they still be connected to society? They are no longer a part of us. But why let our standards down, why fall below our humanity and cause pain to the criminal’s family. Although he might’ve not had remorse for the person he killed, we shouldn’t be the one to punish with death. It’s absolute cruelty to let the person know when will it be their last day.
People choose forgiveness because they want to release the initial offender from their guilt and past action to form a better relationship with them. As Chernoff discusses, "When we release others from the penalties of their actions, we create a space where our own thoughtless actions against others can be forgiven as well”(1). The quote above explains how forgiving others can allow for a better relationship based off of forgiveness between the initial offender and the avenger. People forgive because they see it as the right thing to do. In the text, "In reality, I was just a man who got somebody mad-- mad enough to want to kill him-- and survived it.
When Macbeth sent the murderers to kill Banquo, it was evil to do it for no reason, but it was good that he did not get told that he killed King Duncan. The author types,“The Murderers are street thugs. Some opportunities for comedy in early scenes, but should be downright terrifying in a fight. Hired hands who work as Macbeth 's personal assassins” (General OneFile 1). Instead of Macbeth killing Banquo, he hires murderers to kill him.
The author 's intention in bringing a once strong and evil character to the mercy of their own morality is to educate readers upon the impacts that guilt could have upon their own life if they were to perform the unnatural just as Lady Macbeth did. This is further emphasized by the contrast with Macbeth 's response to the guilt he was faced
As states across the country strive to abolish the death penalty some states are still holding on. Which means that they will find any reason to keep or allow the death penalty to occur and happen. States are killing to hamper the pain of the victim(s)` families, and execution only extends a chain of violence. It`s sad to say that violence is the solution to violence, which it is not. Revenge is a substitute for pay back, it 's a human emotion to hurt someone that hurts someone else or loved one(s).
Fink also keep the testimonies, confidential. The unsettling truth is that I believe and know there were "mercy killings." In that type of situation the staff wanted to eliminate more of the problem. If only the disaster plan had been calculated correctly, less lives would have been lost or should I say taken. I appreciate this story.
It is important for the reader to learn why this heinous act occurs, so they can spread their knowledge and be able to identify when and where a leader is trying to hypnotize the people into slaughtering thousands of people; they can then put an end to something before it ever takes place. People today should learn the history and make sure that nothing like these many genocides that happened, will never happen again in the
The Evil Within Being evil doesn’t always mean doing bad things. Being evil can mean saying bad or mean things or even thinking those things. Innate human evil is evil that is natural and born into the human body and mind. Sometimes, people can’t help evil things that they think, but can help what they say and do. In Julius Caesar, by William Shakespeare, he uses Cassius’ and Antony’s actions and thoughts to show its easy for people to let evil get the better of them.
Some of our greatest minds designed this weapon, despite its terribly destructive nature. The President as given the tool to win the war, so he decided to use it. The decision to drop the bomb is a testament to the strength and ingenuity of the United States. The USSR is an ever growing threat to world peace. After the war, they may simply replace Nazi Germany as the new tyrannical power in the world.
