When it was the right time he humbly claims that he did lie about the treasure. He accepts that he should be punished for lying to them, but right now they should still trust him so they could together find and stop Everett’s wife from marrying someone else. This shows that he knows of his faults, but focused on the main goals. Everett lies, but he lies about something that does not harm others, but does it in a way so he can also benefit. His companions did not loss anything that they had instead they were freed from jail.
O'Brien then shows them that they are both wrong at the end and that everything Winston did is the worst type of crime. Not only does his crimes have material consequence, but he loses the one thing he had kept safe throughout, his freedom. Winston may not be a hero to the people, not even close, but he wanted to be one. However, he was trying to be a hero to himself, give himself his own freedom. He spoke the truth at the end due to the O'Brien's torture and the mind control, he always knew this would be the outcome from his diary entries, the conversations with Julia and his observations of Jones.

Parris is thinking about blaming it on witchcraft without even asking a doctor first but Proctor is trying to convince him otherwise. This shows that from the beginning John is trying to deny that there is witchcraft and keep the rumors from spreading. It shows that he really cares for the town and the people in it, if he did not care, he wouldn't try to protect it. Later on in Act One, John proves that he is questioning everything that is starting to happen in Salem. Parris starts to bring in wardens and officials to investigate the issues at hand.
He lied to Aunt Sally and said he was just a half brother of Huck’s when he was actually Aunt Sally’s nephew. He was adding on to Huck’s lie. That was the only good lie he told because it helped Huck not get into trouble with Aunt Sally. Tom tried to make things like stories. “You’ve got to invent all the difficulties” ( Twain 231).
This actually makes sense and it is a possibility because Twain did not talk about genes and when readers say that Huck’s nature is stronger than nurture, it is only an speculation they made from what they understand from the book and the excerpt. However, even though it that the argument “Huck’s nature side is more obvious than nurture” might be an speculation, it makes more sense because readers can see that Huck would rather go to hell and readers can make an educated guess that if Huck were to be properly nurtured, he would deem going to hell for a slave a crime and an unlawful act. No matter how much the Widow Douglas tries to conform Huck to society’s way, he disapproves of it and wants no part it in. It is too late for the Widow Douglas to change Huck into someone who follows the law and rules of society because Huck’s early “environmental influences” has lead him to deviate from society. It is Huck’s nurture side that makes him who he is-- someone who is willing to free a slave.

In the clip “My Dad’s Story” by Metlife, the dad is is hiding his true emotions while changing his persona and lying to his daughter about their wealth.
Huck knows he must not tell the truth, again to help his friend escape slavery. Another situation is when Huck and Jim first meet the duke and king; Huck soon realizes that they are actually con men. However, he keeps this truth from Jim because he feels that it would be useless to tell him (Twain 99). Huck knows if he tells Jim the truth, unnecessary conflicts could occur. Huck’s lying is justified because he has to in order to protect his friend.
When the Judges started questioning him, he admitted his affair with Abigail Williams, which put his name at risk. Then, John was accused of witchcraft. He was given the choice to tell the truth and be prosecuted or confess to a crime he didn’t commit and be set free. He chose to tell the truth and got sent to jail. During this time, he said “... what is John Proctor?
This is because Danforth’s rule throughout these trials were that if someone was accused of witchcraft, even if they were innocent they had to confess or they were sentenced to death. An example of this is when John Procter is accused he had to confess or he would have been hanged and when he confessed it was not enough for Danforth. Danforth wanted Proctor to sign a confession “Come then, sign your testimony” (cite). He says this even though Procter has made it obvious that he is confessing to a crime he did not commit. Danforth does not care about this though he only wants Procter to confess to secure his own reputation and so his authority does not go into question.
Sufficient evidence presented in the courts revealed that Ravi was led by primary intentions to find out more about the private life of his roommate (Findlaw, 2017). Without breaking the law, he ought to have held a manly conversation with his roommate to find out if he was gay or not. However, the defendant chose to intentionally break the law despite the knowledge that spying on someone’s private life is not only unethical but breaches the fourth amendment of the United States constitution. This is a criminal offense that should meet a more retributive punishment to discourage other people from committing similar
In the Epilogue, Hammurabi states how the laws should be done (Document A).
