Also, in Law 168, it states that if a son hits his father, his hands shall be cut off. Based on what I read, according to these two laws, Hammurabi’s Code was too strict. As you can see, Hammurabi had harsh rules, instead of trying to fix things, he gave consequences. Additionally, it made people lose some kind of property. For example in Law 23, if a robbery has been made and the robber isn’t caught, the society has to give back the items.
If he escapes to another city, they will view him as a criminal and if his children came with him they would be viewed as foreigners. By breaking the law his soul would be ruined and a ruined soul is not worth living with. This goes back to when he said that the really important thing is not to live but to live well. Also, when he dies he would enter Hades as an outlaw and will not be well welcomed. Therefore, he believes that he should stay and face his execution because it is better to die than to live with a ruined soul.
Henry spent a night at jail because he stood up for what he believes in. He didn’t pay his poll taxes in 1846 (taxes/fees on voting in some states) because he believed that it was to fund the Mexican-American war (in which he didn’t believe in) and for the expansion of slavery (he didn’t believe in this either) in the Southwest which later on was actually found out that poll taxes had nothing to do with the Mexican-American war and that his arrest was technically illegal (Brookes). Luckily, someone paid his taxes which eventually let him free. His arrest led him to writing his essay, Civil Disobedience about his experience with the Mexican-American war. In his essay of Civil Disobedience, Thoreau exclaims many social issues that were going on around that time that also inspired his essay.
We always hear "do not litter!" or "throw your litter in the bins", maybe some of you bored to hear that yet we still do not throw it in the correct place. Litter is a serious habit problem to just throw away objects on the ground or leave them lying on the ground, instead of putting them in the garbage can. In Indonesia, the amount of litter is 175.000 ton/day and this is increasing every day. But we don't have to see that far, just look around us, our campus, Sanata Dharma University is still facing the littering problems.
The government in the book had been brainwashing their citizens into believing books were bad for society and were constantly distracting them. Beatty had also tried to protect Montag, by warning him that he only had one day to burn the book. Proving that Beatty is justified in telling Guy Montag to burn his house down Starting off, Beatty was doing his job when telling Montag to burn his house down and if he were to let Montag go then Beatty would have had to suffer the consequences. Montag
They believe that because there is a curfew it will cut down crime. However there is no prove that curfew actually helps, in many cases it makes it worse. Jennifer L. Doleac of the University of Virginia tracked gun violence during curfew times in poor sections of Washington, D.C. “When the curfew switches [from midnight to 11 p.m. in Washington in September] gun violence goes up during the 11 p.m. hour. Because nothing else changes suddenly during that hour, and we don't see similar effects in other hours of the day, we can be sure the increase is due to the curfew.” This shows that the curfew did not cut the crime rate and instead made it worse. Not only do the scientist say that curfew don't work a former police chief in Dover and Lewes, Horvath, also believes it doesn't help saying "People that are determined to commit crime are going to commit crime, even if that means violating a curfew, I've never heard anything where a curfew has been a great
For example, today policeman or an authority figure in the United States is forbidden to force or reject any religious belief. His ideas were only appreciated now, before Winthrop was the main man most people had the same idea as him, as a Puritan society. Williams was so irrelevant no one noticed he died until and week or two later. Even though his impact while he was alive was extremely minimum, today it made a huge difference in the United
This may not grant the church much power, but this eliminated the states power over the personal matter. Another law is clause sixty two which pardoned all men who rebelled against him. This is important because lots of people like clergy and barons were part of the rebellion, so this made sure that they weren’t in danger. “For a trivial offence, a free man shall be fined only in proportion to the degree of his offence, and for a serious offence correspondingly, but not so heavily as to deprive him of his livelihood” (clause 20). This clause states that any offence will be punished in a proportional punishment.
This measure does not aim to reinstate criminals back to normal social lives, it aims to eliminate criminals that does not do any well to society. Moreover, this people does not consider the facts. China has reduced to half murder rate in their first year of application death penalty. In conclusion death penalty it is an effective deterrent because due to or primitive characteristics we reject anything that provoke us fear and again, what provoke us fear more than death? The risk that innocent people die under death penalty is extremely low due to legal appellations and has succeeded in most of the 58 countries who apply it as a capital crime.
Generally, most people know they should be recycling, or at least are aware that recycling is better for the environment and is beneficial toward reducing global warming; and yet, despite knowing these things, too many people put forth no effort to recycle. The lack of efforts is obvious in many communities: with aluminum cans, paper scraps, and plastic bags littering park grounds and scattered along the sides of highways. It can also be noted that there are no convenient recycling centers in towns, and no programs that provide recycling services to residential households or commercial properties. While my community here in Kendallville, Indiana has a small recycling center, I believe the town is not meeting its full potential when it comes to the efforts it could put forth toward recycling. Here in Kendallville, we have a recycling center located just off Main St, where recyclers will find color-coded smiley face bins
