Many citizens break the law created by the government for a reason you would never expect. One should break the law if one is the agent of injustice. One should follow their morality. Although others might say that one should always obey the law and not risk breaking it, because it could lead to corruption and rebellion. Henry David Thoreau’s claim makes sense that one should break the law if one is the agent of injustice as demonstrated in Antigone, Civil Disobedience, and Hero or Traitor.
Conventionalism claims our moral obligations and principles are derived from the “social norms” and what is right or wrong according to society. Conventionalists are obligated to know what society will approve and disapprove of, and act accordingly. Our actions are then essentially compared to the social norms and then deemed right or wrong. For example, in today’s society incest is considered wrong. It may or may not be right, but we jump to the conclusion that it is wrong because of what we were told and observed growing up.
But at this point Sal’s mother was pregnant so when her mother gave birth the baby was dead when it got strangled with its umbelacelcord. Sal blamed herself because she thinks if she never climbed that tree none of it would have happened. Sal thought, “ He said to me, “ It wasn’t your fault, Sal—it wasn’t because she carried you. You mustn’t think that,” I didn’t believe him,” (page 138). If Sal didn’t believe her father 's words then she thinks she caused her mothers miscarriage and she is probably upset about this.
He does agree with Didion that religion is a delusion, but he believes that religion has cause an immense number of problems. That religion is just for people to feel better about their actions. He states, "In the opinion of religious people, however, the private comfort that religion brings more than compensates for the evil done in its name." He argues that the secular-ethical position is the right position. Basically, this positon is that morality should be defined strictly by logic, facts, intuition, and empathy.
Sexual acts for pleasure ,for both man and women, have been forbidden. The new regime has also caused the Commanders relationship with Serena to be damaged, due to them acquiring handmaids. This causes the Commander to form a relationship with Offred, in order to satisfy his needs. He soon manipulates Offred into having sex with him. The irony of this situation rests in the fact that most of the laws, based on the Bible, of Gilead were enforced in order “to protect women,” yet Offred is not being “protected” due to her fear that the Commander might expel her if she does not sleep with him.
Censorship is good for society People’s actions need to be controlled. For example, people should not want the government telling other nations about the next new bomb or weapon created. In society citizens do not want potential enemies knowing where government records are and where troops are going.In the book “Fahrenheit 451” censorship is a big part of people’s live’s .This world is a dramatized version of a censored society; everyone is self centered and involved in themselves. Censorship is needed for children, insuring morally productive people and creates safety in society. Censorship protects children Aric Sigman author of “What Children Need is Censorship,” said “the difference between a child and an adult is that children are more vulnerable to the effects of everything from sunburn and alcohol to ideas and images”.

Opposers for the policy thinks that the policy lacks “common sense.” The American Academy of Pediatrics reported that with the policy having the consequence of students being suspended or expel would lead them to just drop out of high school.

In other words, Martin Luther King Jr. strongly believes that the citizen has a legal and moral responsibility to obey laws that are just, as well as the moral responsibility to disobey laws that are unjust. He made it clear that he did not advocate the disobedience of laws unless they are unjust. He believes a law is unjust if it downgrades the individual, if it sets apart or segregates different groups of people. Unjust laws should not be accepted just because the government has said that it must be followed. If something is immoral, it would be wrong to accept them and not at against

John Rawls develops civil disobedience as a way to fight against acts of injustice that occur in a nearly just society (Rawls, p. 363). Civil disobedience must be enacted to establish legitimate democratic authority, so it does not apply to other methods of protest such as military resistance (Rawls, p. 363). Rawls focuses on the conflict of duties between a person’s obligation to follow the laws put in place by the democratic majority, in contrast with their right to oppose unjust laws and fight for their personal liberties (Rawls, p. 363). Rawls defines civil disobedience as a “public, nonviolent, conscientious yet political act contrary to law usually done with the aim of bringing about a change in the law or policies of the government”
The doctrine states that courts are bound by decisions held in earlier cases. However, I agree with the reasoning in Johnson, a court should be allowed to correct the effects of a prior court ruling if the ruling was badly reasoned and has a negative impact on society. The criminal justice system, which includes the courts, was established to control crime and enforce punishments on those who violated the law. Stare decisis should not apply to a court correcting a prior court decision, which consequences resulted in contradicting the establishment of the criminal justice
The shooter died in a battle of gunfire with an officer. The second robber pled guilty to robbery and was sentenced to nine years, with good time/work time credits he could have gotten out in 50% or less of the sentence. Both these men were on parole with multiple convictions for violent crimes. Kimber’s father called a meeting with local officials and assemblymen to put together a bill that would keep people like the two that killed his daughter in prison for life. On March 1, 1993 lawmakers pushed forward Assembly Bill 971, “which in its original version mandated a tripling of the usual sentence upon the commission of any third felony” (Kieso, Douglas, W., 2005).
You may also be required to install an ignition interlock device in your vehicle. Even with your first DWI offense, you will face stiffer fines if there is a child under 15 in your vehicle.

The most common type is retribution. Retribution is when you do something bad, and it is said something bad will happen to you in return. Retribution is an example of dicterans, dicterans is the idea of knowing there is a consequence to your actions, avoiding you to not participate in an inappropriate act or behavior. Due to this the government has strict law and rules explaining the cosequences if they are violated. Rehabilitation is also a program which helps one become an ideal human being in the society.
