Generally, people seem to agree to torture the terrorist, and will set aside their moral values for the “greater good”. This sounds acceptable. The TBS suggests that only the naive would chose to not torture a person who is know to be the one who planted the bomb. He is not just a suspect, he is the actual terrorist. Also, why would you not torture someone who is going to
To start, Winston cannot be contemplated as a hero because he does not show courage. For instance, Winston hides rather than openly revolts. He sneaks away with Julia and becomes part of the secret Brotherhood conspiracy. The Brotherhood’s intention is, as O’Brien tells Winston, to “betray your country for foreign powers” (Orwell 172) and other uncourageous acts such as murdering and sabotage, which he agrees to. Also, Winston shows that he is willing to ‘throw sulphuric acid in a child’s face” (Orwell 172) by agreeing with Julia to O’Brien without hesitation.
Some would say no because it was thought as his religion so why not follow that , but that doesn’t mean you just kill innocent people for absolutely no reason. This essay will let you know why he needed to be assassinated . Osama was obviously dangerous because he was a terrorist “a person who uses terrorism in the pursuit political aims”
Marcus Brutus’s fatal flaw in Julius Caesar shows in his naïve idealism. It clearly shows that Brutus thinks too highly of his fellow man, believing them more good at heart than what they are proven to actually be. Firstly, he believes that, as long as they keep the number of deaths to a minimum, everyone will go along with their assassination of Caesar. He is so convicted of this that he declares after denying the suggestion to kill Mark Antony as well as Caesar: “We shall be called purgers, not murderers. / And for Mark Antony, think not of him; / For he can do no more than Caesar’s arm / When Caesar’s head is off” (II.i.193-196).
During the course of the play, Macbeth goal is to fulfill only the prophecies that are beneficial to him and him only. His thirst for power allowed his character flaw to show, for he was consumed with hubris. While he is thinking about his plan to kill Duncan, Macbeth has all of these reasons not to kill Duncan, but his ambition is so strong, Macbeth cannot deny his urge to murder. “I have no spur to prick the sides of my intent, but only vaulting ambition” (I, vii, 25-27). He also says that, by eliminating Duncan, he would only be teaching his subjects that a rise to power is possible through violence, and karma would come back to bite him.
Winston’s job is to alter newspaper articles to suit the party’s current regime, to make outer party members believe that what the party is doing is accurate. This shows us that the party is lying and that they are changing history for their own benefit. Winston finds hard evidence of this but ends up throwing it down the “memory hole” where it was incinerated. The party’s main focus is to establish complete totalitarianism over Oceania and by doing this it will destroy any concept of freedom. Therefore any person, who commits these thought crimes against the party, will be vaporized.
By the end of the book the government has completely taken over Winston’s mind and brainwashed him to fit standards set by the party. After everything, they ended up killing him for what he had done. If the government were like this today, we would probably be in either a complete dictatorship or our world would find ourselves slowly fading into anarchy. Our own social freedom, our freedom of press, speech, and ability to stand up for what we believe in is important to remain a stable society. Our own opinions and morals make us who we are, and if we don't speak up or take part in any of our governments actions as simple as voting for our next president, our world may fall into one such as
O’Brien speaks in a kind and encouraging way; his words are encouraging in that he is pushing Winston to realize the how the Party has utter control over history and society itself. O’Brien explains that “[The Party controls] life, Winston, at all its levels. You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us” (Orwell 269). In reality, Winston is actually being unreasonable by not accepting that the Party has total control. O’Brien reveals his true identity as a friend by pushing Winston to accept this total control, justifying Winston’s torture to see five of O’Brien’s fingers instead of
After Macbeth agrees to the plan, explains that he has “no spur To prick the sides of my intent, but only Vaulting ambition, which o’erleaps itself And falls on the other…” (I, sc vii, 25-27). Unlike most Aristotelian tragic heroes, Macbeth admits outright his fatal flaw. Macbeth’s flaw encourages him to kill King Duncan and many other negative actions, which sets up him for his downfall. Once Macbeth has power in his hands, he will not want to let go. Without this fatal flaw, Macbeth would have no ambition or motivation to murder the
There are three issues that we should focus on: the first would be to build more jails. This way judges wouldn’t be pressurized to give lenient sentences due to lack of jail space, the second would be to elect judges in order to reflect the will of the majority of public. This way, we can ensure that judges are not biased, and we have the power to vote them out of office if biases occurs. The third focus point would be to open shelter homes specifically for criminals and addicts who are mentally ill and require residential treatment. This would act as a transition between prison and
O 'Brien is also an inner party member that was smart enough to set a trap on Winston, to finally end his life as he knew it. There thoughts of Winston- I think that Parsons and Syme believe that Winston is just like everyone else in the story. Follows rules and accepts what the party says and does. On the other hand I believe that O 'Brien knew that Winston was an enemy of the party and that is why he set up the trap for
