He rebels his culture by going against the beliefs of the government. Even Though Weiwei is supposed to agree with the regulations, he shares his opinions freely and disagrees. Ai Weiwei still remains outspoken of freedom and human right. He knows they “own the land, [they] set the game rules … but the disappearance is [his]” (Weiwei 2). The government has control over the benefits, therefore Weiwei is trying to emphasize that the chinese receive the consequences.
The Tao Te Ching is filled with examples of how Lao Tzu thought life should be lived. Under his teaching, the best way to stop conflict is to avoid it all together. Life is like a flowing river and if one were to stop, it would cause conflict for others. To relation this to modern times, Confucius would be pro government and Lao Tzu would not. "The
In fact, giving employees directed goals driven by extrinsic incentives often led to poorer performance (Chamorro-Premuzic). Similarly, the distrust Machiavelli prescribed leaders to harbor would actually inhibited a state’s growth, as it was centered around the extrinsic motivator of avoiding punishment and maintaining power rather than an intrinsic passion for making the people’s lives
Oyster Adams students are always risk-taking and trying out new ways to push the boundaries. Due to this behaviour, Oyster Adams should follow the confucianism philosophy of respect of respect, teach and reward to make sure students behave appropriately in our school. Demonstrated by Confucianism,the leader must lead by example so others can be encouraged to do the good thing. “If you govern the people with laws and regulate them with penalties, the people will try to do no wrong, but they will lose the sense of shame. If you govern the people with virtue and rules of poverty, the people will have a better sense of shame and reform themselves.” Confucianism acknowledges that the best way to make people behave is to govern them with virtue
Rabin and I defined that an unfree world means the rules of the government. Rabin explains to me that the quote is saying, “if you become free for yourself, you start to rebel against it,” then I explained to him that it says, “when you follow rules, you are most likely not to be free.” Then, we both described rules as an act of oppression and that rules can really oppress you in your very existence. I also told him that it says, “It’s all about following your own rules as an act of rebelling the unfree world.” Therefore, Professor Mansfield explains the meaning of the quote that, “the free of your existence is an act of doing what you’re supposed to
According to John Locke, an effective government must respect its people’s natural rights, which he argues is necessary because he believes that people have the ability to reason and are inherently good to govern themselves. Because the boys fail to implement this key governing component, they face the consequence of complete chaos and anarchy, which leads to multiple deaths. In John Locke’s Two Treatises of Government, he mentions the idea that “Governments exist by the consent of the people in order to protect the rights of the people and promote the public good, governments that fail to do so can be resisted and replaced with new governments.” [Locke]. Since he says that “governments exist by the consent of the people”, he is saying that
These few questions might pop into one 's head when they hear civil disobedience. This topic is highly debatable and different people might have different opinions. People who have suffered from some form of injustice may define civil disobedience differently from others. By definition, civil disobedience is the refusal to comply with specific laws or to pay taxes and fines, as a peaceful form of political protest. This is important because this is when one fights through a problem without physically hurting someone.
Our elderly teaches us to be obedient, but disobedience is a virtue proving one's ability to stand against a wrong. Oscar Wilde argues that disobedience is a valuable human trait that can create social progress. Disobedience is necessary to make changes within ourselves or amongst our community. For example, Martin Luther King Jr. served as leader in his community and argued that civil disobedience was one way to change the laws and feelings being set against colored people. King believed in order to get his point across was by taking action, but he did not want violent protests and the use of physical force.
(AGG) As Daniel J. Boorstin had clarified, “The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” (Goodreads) This relates to the government form Fahrenheit 451 trying to hide the truth from the society, and had eventually killed them. (BS-1) The government tries to control the amount of knowledge and take advantage of the lack of knowledge. (BS-2) The effort to control this trait, while helping the society, will eventually damage the society. (BS-3) The lack of memory power will help avoid controversies while damaging many relationships, but, this can be fixed by slowing your thoughts and clearing your mind. (TS) In the book, Fahrenheit 451, Bradbury 's key message is to remind his readers about the value of knowledge and memory, and the dangers of trying to control them.
Still, questions have to be asked on the ethicality of using quite punitive measures and restrictive institutions. Even increased recidivism has not deterred criminality. There is an increasing belief that punishment does not work in the expected economical and ethical efficiency. Because of the mounting belief that punishment does not work, there is an increased call for its abolishment and the establishment of a social alternative. Those opposed to utilitarianism proposes restitution for crime victims and therapies for criminals.
