Macbeth’s fate is not just determined by Malcolm reclaiming the throne, but revenge for murdering Macduff’s family. Macbeth’s fate is in the hands of Macduff either he will rise or fall. Macbeth suffers from the decisions that he makes. For example, when Malcolm and Macduff come back to battle him. Macduff says Despair thy charm, and let the angel whom thou still hast served Tell thee, Macduff was from his mother’s womb Untimely ripped.

Despite brutal and savage methods of persuasion slowly gaining support, Chavez proves that nonviolent actions are superior; he does so by using ethos in order to uphold moral standards, logos (in reference to the past), and pathos to appeal to the emotions of his audience. Chavez begins his argument by saying that a human life is an irreplaceable “possession given by God”. By resorting to violence, it has the grim possibility of being taken away. Chavez further expands his use of ethos by providing examples of ethics and morals. Nonviolence gathers support for moral causes, whereas unethical actions create discouragement among followers.
Even worse the officials claimed that his father had committed suicide, which prevented his family from inheriting the life insurance money. Furthermore, in the midst of all this happening to young Malcolm his mother began to go crazy and as a consequence, she got sent to a mental hospital. Americans often portray heroes to be flawless, but truth be told Malcolm X’s actions and life will reveal the contrary. He was a thief, drug dealer, racist, gambler, pimp, and took part of racketing.

Instead of holding the traits of honesty, trustworthiness and leniency, Machiavelli told one make it only look as though did instead, and when the time came, they could be corrupt, sly and merciless. “It is good to appear clement [merciful] (sic), trustworthy, humane, religious, and honest, and also to be so, but always with the mind so disposed that, when the occasion arises not to be so, you can become the opposite...he must see to all who see and hear him a model of piety, loyalty, integrity, humanity, and religion.” (Machiavelli, ❡6-7). To give false sincerity to someone, it ruins the ideal image of that person when discovered they are not as they seem. As a leader, the population one had loyalty from could be reversed. The power that one had worked hard to acquire would fall from their grasp, and they would be portrayed as a liar and a disgrace to society after the discovery of their dishonesty to the people they
Therefore, it is desirable and just that some party intervene and stop the injustices. While war is without a doubt an evil, it is necessary in certain contexts. Deane, (1963) writes, “War is always an evil, though on occasions it may be necessary in order to prevent worse evils” (156) Taking Deane’s summary of St. Augustine to heart, we have a moral obligation to
In The Kite Runner, shown in multiple ways, shame can be an extremely destructive force in an individual’s life by destroying relationships between loved ones. The force of shame triggered Amir to turn his back on his best friend whom he later finds out is his brother, Hassan. Amir framed Hassan by saying he stole from him, “I lifted Hassan’s mattress and planted my new watch and a handful of Afghani bills under it.” Amir was dishonored by not taking up for Hassan when he was in need of his assistance, so Amir’s shame caught up with him and assumed it would make matters better by attempting to have Baba get rid of him and Ali by framing him. Also, Amir disrespected Hassan and hit him in the chest with a pomegranate, “I hurled the pomegranate at him.” To me this was an attempt for Amir to test Hassan’s honor and respect by seeing if he would hit him back;
The divine command theory, utilitarianism, Kant’s duty defined morality, natural law theory, and Aristotle’s virtue ethics are the five types of ethical theories. The divine command theory states that what is morally right and wrong will be decided by God. Utilitarianism states that “Action “A” is morally right if and only if it produces the greatest amount of overall happiness. Kant’s duty defined morality states that what is important is acting for the sake of producing good consequences, no matter what the act is. Natural law theory states that people should focus on the good and avoid any evil.
Morality has been identified with adherence to godliness and divine, immorality with sin, and the moral law with the command of God so that the moral life is seen as a direct and personal relationship with the ultimate one. It is taught that to act immorally is to disobey God. Whether it is a Shiite Muslim fighting a holy war in the name of Allah, a Hindu killing an innocent animal as a sacrifice to bring rain, or the Christian giving to charity in the name of Christ, religion has changed the idea of morality as indiscriminate from religion. There have been exceptions: Confucianism in China is essentially a secular system, there are nontheist versions of Buddhism, and the philosophers of Greece contemplated
