Based on the optimistic view of Rogers, free will is an crucial part of human nature and man can himself determine the path of his life. By looking at this view, man must tries to step forward in the path of self-growth, should have the power to solve his problems and take the matters into his hands. The humanist perspective stresses the necessity of freedom in all aspects of economical, cultural and political life, and believes in that morality which connects human values with worldly relationships so that he can move further towards freedom and happiness. Waiting for Godot deals with the same humanistic concerns, but it provides the evidence to excavate the
People use these addictions to escape the world they live in, similarly to the way Case has a dependency on drugs. This type of dependency is usually started because people have the feeling of emptiness and are struggling with this feeling, looking for an easy way to feel better. Case was given the opportunity to escape his addiction, but instead Case states, “Thanks, but I was enjoying that dependency” (45). He enjoyed his dependency on drugs and alcohol because it was a form of an escape from his body, a chance to forget about his body slowly deteriorating. As Case gradually weakens he continues to abuse stimulants to help with the loss of energy.
Likewise, in “Sonny’s Blues” by James Baldwin, Sonny is able to replace his heroin addiction with music. His brother is constantly worrying about Sonny’s life. The article, “Art Therapy” by Marisa Crane, writes about how music therapy helps the addicted people recover. Drug addiction can have different influences in one’s life because it affects a person’s relationships, health conditions, and can lead to positive use of arts. Heroin addiction can have positive and negative effects on relationships.
The third argument King has in favour of nonviolent resistance is in how it creates a stage for oppressed groups to speak their truths. King views nonviolent resistance as the only morally sound method in addressing these issues. When reading this, I found it to be slightly unclear, however, I have concluded that it is because hate breeds hate, which is why a different approach is needed being nonviolent resistance. This would prove to be a powerful movement, but frustrating as one must expect to face various forms of violence but stay in a state of peace within oneself. In intentionally placing oneself in violent scenarios and not having to endure extreme mistreatment in attempt to address another.
To a large extent it is better to live spontaneously. Mencius and Daoist have different interpretations on spontaneity. Mencius emphasizes on expanding humans’ innate good nature, which leads to spontaneous moral cultivation. On the other hand, Daoist spontaneity is emptying ourselves and follow the nature of the outside world without human interference. In this essay, I will first describe the concept of spontaneity in both Mencian and Daoist views, and then I will argue that it is better to live spontaneously, in terms of psychological wellbeing and quality of decision in life.
To quote Berlin, “Coercion frustrates human desires, but it can be applied to prevent greater evils. Non-interference, on the other hand, is the opposite of coercion, is good, but not the only good.” This is supposedly the ‘negative’ conception of liberty in its classical form. Secondly, Berlin believes that this negative notion is comparatively new. Thirdly, liberty, in this sense, is principally concerned with ‘the area of control, not with its source’. He believes that negative freedom is not logically related to democracy or self-government.
Self-Destructive Behaviour Substance Abuse Substance Abuse is the excessive use of a drug such as alcohol or narcotics. When abusing a substance there is an inability to decrease your intake of the drug. This can become a daily intake of the substance. Teens in South Africa sometimes use harmful methods to intake their required drug. There many causes of substance abuse amongst teens in SA but the main ones are Depression and peer pressure.
It may be a difficult personal choice, but that does not imply there is a moral paradox. The other option is that the two choices are, on-balance, the same level of good or bad. This can also make for a difficult choice, but the moral system dictates that there is no immoral answer. A system of morality which is based solely on balanced judgements is the easiest way to debunk moral paradoxes, but it lacks a consistent set of personal values. It is a framework for individual morality.
Addiction is the reliance on a routine. There are many addictive stages. Addiction, as it comes along, becomes a way of life. The persistent use of the substance causes to the user serious physical or psychological problems and dysfunctions in major areas of his or her life. The drug user continues to use substances and the compulsive behavior despite the harmful consequences, and tries to systematically avoid responsibility and reality, while he or she tends to isolate himself/herself from others because of guilt and pain (Angres, & Bettinardi-Angres, 2008).
