This is because in the new government system, the Germans taught that the Jews were not people. Therefore, Jews did not deserve to be treated as such. This logic made no sense to Corrie and her family, in their heads the Jews were still people, and harming them was still a sin. Fully aware of the consequences, the Ten Booms determined that keeping the Jews safe was the honorable and honest thing to do. Therefore, the Ten Booms began to hide the Jews and live out a dishonest life.
Here is where the Igbo and Christian religions differ. The Ibo believed in multiple of gods, whereas the Christians focus on one. They also disagree on the feelings towards their creator. Later into their conversation Mr. Brown says to Akunna, “You are afraid of Chukwu. In my religion Chukwu is a loving father and need not be feared by those who do his will” (Achebe 110).
People think because there are people that come from some of our enemy countries it makes them bad aswell, so we should harm them which makes no sense in doing if they are not a part of it. It is a useless tool that we have been using way to often when there are many other ways to be able to help our country without making a lot of enemies at the same time. Torture is something our government has been depending on to help them but we need to have better ways in
People say that since Christians also believe in these other holy beings that there is no way that Christianity could be considered a monotheistic religion. However, even though Christians do sometimes believe and worship Jesus or Mary, they still know that God is the one and only God. They know that God is the one true God either way. This is why Christianity is in fact a monotheistic
When the phrase Jim Crow is uttered, many people feel a rush of inept thoughts and bad memories due to the social taboo against talking of the lowest point in America’s history. Jim Crow was not just a set of laws aimed to oppress the lives of all black people, but a movement by the citizens, black or white, that caused a corrupt mindset in all men and women. Many people tried to stop the social force from continuing in individual spurts of courage, but they were not able to stop Jim Crow as individuals. An individual’s own personal courage cannot fight against Jim Crow, because a single person would not be able to stop an entire movement embedded into the minds of millions of people, not to mention how the social pressure against it was too strong to even fathom fighting against it. One main reason why it was unable for Jim Crow to be fought by a single person is because there was no feasible way in which one person, no matter how powerful, rich, or socially accepted, could have changed the entirety of
Some pros about it, is that it allows people to strive to be morally and ethically good to avoid the consequences. If everyone shares this ideal and puts it into practice, the world would be an amazing place to live in. It states that action is considered good if it benefits someone, and sinful things in this world like rape, and stealing does not benefit everyone. Additionally, euthanasia is considered as murder to some people; while murder is sinful, utilitarianism states that murder is beneficial in the case of euthanasia. When facing hard decisions it seems impossible to choose.
Devlin would have thought the act of polyandry to be immoral and disintegrates the society however, being a moderate moralism he would not have wanted to intervene with the privacy of other unless the act has become very widely practiced and start causing harm to the society. However, if the was a law to be passed to make polyandry legal, Devlin would have disagree with this because once it has been made legal it will drive and encourage many to conduct this immoral act. Devlin did not say that every immoral act is to be prohibited. Devlin used the jury box morality of average right minded citizens where moral standards of behaviour are the standards of behaviour of a reasonable man. Will a reasonable man think the act of polyandry as something good and to be done?
Truth and reconciliation commission (TRC) quickly expected people to mourn but people were unable to forget what happened, TRC expected more than they should form the people. Apartheid has destroyed people’s life, people cannot force keep the pains and hurts inside them; they should disclose what they felt as a process of making them mourn. We claim to be a rainbow nation country but our actions are not similar as to the actions rainbow nation. My personal view is that people should be given more time to heal which will eventually make them realise that they need to open their hearts and forgive the past, I
“It is not good to be different from our brothers, but it is evil to be superior to them”(21). It is acceptable to be diverse from the group, but anything where one person could even have a chance of being slightly more exceptional is beyond forbidden. Being good at anything will lead to confidence which the house of council does not want. Confidence leads to thinking you are correct and can do anything. If a person with confidence believes the government is mistaken they may cause a revolt.
And in the 21st century taking someone’s life for justice is shameful for all humanity. The government’s job is not to terminate life but to save it. As Gandhi says, “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.” To sum up, capital punishment must not be a punishment option for criminals because taking criminals life is immoral, and it does not match with the purpose of punishment. In conclusion, no one benefits from capital punishment, and it is not good for both governments and criminals. Also, it is obvious that it has more disadvantages than its advantages.
