Not all people fear consequences, they only push forward to want to do better to help the world they live in. There is only a select few, which fear how not affecting the world will harm them. Charity workers, army men, community service workers, etc. do not work to benefit themselves. Although, some people want to benefit only their being, more than that amount wants to change the
There’s a difference between making a decision for the better good and because it supports a certain belief. For instance, one person’s beliefs may benefit him/her but put someone else at risk. In Huck Finn’s case, he is forced to protect and lie for Jim despite it putting himself at risk as well. His decision, in turn, makes him care for Jim as a person and become more humane. It’s hard for close-minded people to change their opinions, and the same goes for Huck Finn.
In Machiavelli’s opinion, men are fickle, ungrateful, selfish, and unpredictable. Machiavelli says, “Men have less hesitation in injuring one who makes himself loved than one who makes himself feared, for love is held by a chain of duty which, since men are bad, they break at every chance at their own profit; but fear is held by a dread of punishment that never fails you.” This way of thinking is very safe, when you cannot predict the outcomes of your people you should be feared by them. I think that is a very smart way of thinking, because it is truly easier to betray the people that you love than the people that you fear. The people that you love are easy to betray, so why would a leader want to be loved and have the possibility of being betrayed, because he cannot balance both being loved and feared. He should choose to
The source of evil, according to Saint Augustine, is our following corrupted desires and turning our backs on the love and goodness that God extends to us. His theory ignores the roots or source of these desires, as they are what lead humans to choose to act in ways inconsistent with God’s will. Evil exists in all of us, irrespective of how godly we are or how vigilant we are in following the goodness of God. The desire is always present and the commitment we make to helping God’s goodness cast a bright light that over-washes the shadow of evil is what keeps the world as good and godly as the world is
I realized that I should try to live the the simple, joyful life my grandpa had lived. Also, I realized that I should start living in the moment, and try to be kinder to others. I believe the rite of passage I experienced was very important because it led me to try to live my life as a better person. Rites of passages are extremely important in developing someone into a better person because they gain much knowledge from their experience. Rites of passage is also important because it is crucial to our development as human beings.
Criss Jami once said, "Confidence turns into pride only when you are in denial of your mistakes." Pride finds a way to elicit the worst in someone. Unwanted pride can be seen evident in ones daily life, education, politics, history, etc. Could pride educe the best in someone? Maybe; however, I agree with Playwright Sophocles that , "all men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil.
Pride can have very positive effects, if it is handled correctly, but too much pride holds many consequences, sometimes even death. This is evident when the narrator feels embarrassed to have a disabled brother, because he fears that Doodle’s physical disabilities reflect shame and humiliation on him as well as his family. This pride helps Doodle walk, but eventually that pride controls the narrator. The narrator starts to develop unrealistic expectations that Doodle struggles to meet. Finally, that pride takes over the narrator completely, causing him to run when “Doodle’s and [his] plan [comes to] naught, and that streak of cruelty within [him] [awakens]” (Hurst 353).
Forcing it makes them think negatively about it while educating them gives them a choice and won’t give them bad impressions of the religion. Kingsolver believes that everyone is slightly complicit and that may be true. Not everyone has bad intentions when they are slightly complicit, but it is still illegal or wrong to do whatever they may be involved in. Some people want to make change and help the world become a better, equal place for people and animals to live in, but some just want to scam their way through life and get places by other people already doing all the hard work. Some people can be amazing and make mistakes, or others know exactly what they’re going, good intentions or not, and are okay with possibly ruining something good for someone else.
