At this point he is admitting fault with lying to Ender about the battles just being a game, and not the actual war. At this point in the book, Card intends that the reader catches on to the fact that Ender dislikes lying, if the reader has not done so already. After this point in the book, Ender does not tell a lie, but only tells the truth. This is how Ender was able to rise up as a person from such a traumatic event, and learn quickly that lying is never the answer, and that it will result in nothing good in the end. Ender even admits earlier that Colonel Graff was indeed right in his speculation of Ender not being able to kill off the bugger species if he had known exactly what he was doing.

McNamara believes that is because of the human nature that war can’t end any time soon even taking in conceteration that we are all rational creatures, by our actions and decissions we show that rationality has limits.

In order to be at all successful, a prince must be willing to do what is necessary; otherwise, other human beings will take advantage of him. Due to human nature, a prince cannot afford to be just good. However, a prince should strive not to have a reputation for continuous wrongdoing. Although he must commit several vices, appearing as such may be just as dangerous when it comes to maintaining a principality. If this cannot be avoided, a prince must accept this reputation for wrongdoing.
Sophocles portrays this obstinance and rigidity as negative. On the other hand, Weber’s essay discusses the ethical paradoxes inherent in decision making by emphasizing the complex dynamics of most ethical dilemmas. In Weber’s opinion, those who attempt to simply pursue “good” without

Through this definition, one can clearly see that, as feuds are based around conflict, they are inevitably detrimental to the parties involved.

Now that the term “feud” has been defined, the “understood rules” of feuds should also be
But Ender hates that quality. Other people put him in situations where his defensive side turns into his bad side, but Ender always wishes for events to be ended without violence. His compassion is his strongest trait, and it bonds people to him; his ruthlessness wins their undoubted faith in him as a commander. Or at least that is what Colonel Graff
I agree with him on why people procrastinate and how procrastinating can damage those people, however, I also disagree with some of the so called(by him) benefits for procrastination and with the way he tried to convince the readers with his ideas using fallacies, false assumptions and weak evidence. John says that if you don’t like something, you will procrastinate to not do it and I can’t agree more with that because no one will be able something that he has no desire for or without being passionate about it, even if he manages to do it somehow it won’t be perfectly done. So to cut it short, people procrastinate when they have unpleasant tasks to do. "This
They are anxious for fear until it arrives and then they back down. Aristotle believes that there are things that we should fear and things that we should not be afraid of.
