Every society strives to be perfect, but the truth is most cannot make the sacrifices necessary to achieve perfection. Every society contains too much conflict since different people's’ views and emotions are constantly clashing with each other. These conflicts are the reason why a utopian society cannot be created. In order to have a perfect society, everyone in that society has to have similar motives to eliminate conflicting ideals. Societies have to be willing to sacrifice certain traits, such as emotions and the truth to obtain perfection, but first, they must ask themselves, “is it really worth giving up these traits?”
Men make laws to instill order in a society and prevent chaos in any shape or form. Naturally, laws will always be somewhat unjust because it is impossible to consistently construct laws that directly and equally benefit all members of a society. There will always be a majority that makes the laws and a minority that has to obey the laws. Although laws are usually the standard of morality by which we live by, they must be disobeyed in certain situations. These situations are, but not limited to, an undemocratic formation of aforementioned laws, laws that are inherently unjust according to human law which can be synonymous with God’s law.
By using this point of view to portray how helpless the main character, Lane Dean, feels, readers will learn entering an early parenthood is not always a good option for those who are young and unprepared ones because many problems and questions will arise. In Lane’s scenario, he does not know if he wants to keep the baby at first. Yet, his problems evolve to doubts as he begins to question his goodness, his love to Sheri and his faith in God. Therefore, the important message that readers can receive from “Good People” is: the standards of becoming “a good person” are unknown because everyone has distinct views on what is right or
Something potentially responsible for this phenomenon is the Backfire Effect. David McRaney describes the Backfire Effect with great accuracy in his article “The Backfire Effect”: “coming or going, you stick to your beliefs instead of questioning them. When someone tries to correct you, tries to dilute your misconceptions, it backfires and strengthens them instead” (1). This unbreakable resolve for maintaining beliefs in contradiction to logic prevents us from seeing truth effectively. However, what drives the Backfire Effect?
Furthermore, he tries to conform but simply cannot. He then realizes that it's okay and even good to be your own person. He wants to show people how to think for themselves and fight for what they believe in. In his society they will be able to do the job they want and create things. These are a few of the big rules in his old society, all of which he is
Though Singer raises a great argument on morality and famine, his obligations can be too demanding. How much can morality demand of us? His obligations limit our freedom to act and may even demand us to act in opposition to our interests as he demands that we must always make the morally utmost choice. Singer’s principle also will require us to not favor our moral concerns we may have. Also, if everyone were to follow their moral obligations, wouldn’t people have sacrificed much more than they needed to?
If there was no one to challenge the “norm”, how could people ever change? Humorists today are more important than ever as people grow increasingly ignorant of the issues that surround them and the messages they don’t want to
The Way We Lie, she provides the different examples of lying and why we do it. We lie for many reasons and it’s been said that the truth can hurt sometimes. I too have lied but I don’t let it take control over my life as I doubt it's healthy to constantly lie on a daily basis. The more we lie, the more we become separated from everybody
“Morality is not properly the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but how we may make ourselves worthy of happiness” (Immanuel Kant). Morality is the divergence between right and wrong in every aspect of life. The history of the world has demonstrated human need to attain sovereignty. In the journey to achieve this goal, people have forgotten the gravity of the steps taken to complete an ideal and have only focused on the result. There have been several examples where detrimental actions have been taken by fortunate people to accomplish their goals.
There is little logic behind it, and overall doesn’t make too much sense. An individual pledging for its entire community by themselves without their own identity is one large paradox that doesn’t add up, no matter which way you try to solve
Finally, no I do not believe that the flag is a symbol of hatred or racism, but I do believe that some individuals do believe that, that’s what the whole history of the flag is based on. I believe that every individual should get solid facts/proof/knowledge on the topic and actually know what is going on, instead of believing everything that they hear and or see on the internet, TV, radio, ect… We already have enough problems in this world as it is. Know what you’re talking about and about your history before you open your mouth and make things an extremely bigger problem than it should
Well this question is up to the personal opinion of the person being asked. To one person, a life may be sacred and the greatest sin would be to take that away from someone, where to someone else, they might not want to watch someone suffer if they know that they have the ability to help them. Theres no right answer to this question, the only time an answer may be reached is with the majority vote. The world is not perfect and it is impossible for everyone to agree. From my point of view, if is someone is in pain, how could you let them suffer.
I would gain look to gain their support by listening to the concerns that they have. Many times people do not take part in change because they feel that their voice will not be herd. I feel that in order for change to happen we needed to have as many individuals as active in the process as possible. This issue I feel would have bring about many stumbling blocks. This issue tackles a major issue in our society and affects the well being of it.
All freedoms should have a restriction somewhere, and this limitation should happen when one breaks a law for the purpose of a religion. Americans should have their freedoms, but safety is even more important. Harming others for the purpose of a religion is a threat to society, and can bring down the nation. It is not fair for the purpose of people to break the law just because of a religious belief, while other people get punished for breaking the law. The first amendment is a controversial topic that still gets debated today.
It makes me wonder if I truly have the identity that God says I have. As a result of questioning so many parts of my life, I begin to feel inadequate or like I am messed up because I tend to waver back and forth between one belief and the other. For instance, one day I may be completely confident in my identity in Christ, but one negative interaction with a friend (or even a stranger) can trigger my anxiety, which triggers my insecurity, which triggers my questioning, which triggers my feelings of inadequacy, and the cycle repeats
