Many times, people lead themselves to their own downfall. Their demise is often a long and arduous one where they find themselves alone at the end. This truth is frequently depicted in novels, plays and other forms of entertainment. The isolation that occurs in these narratives is one that makes any human with a beating heart fear making the same mistakes that the characters do.

There are many stigmas attached to receiving public assistance. People who depend on welfare to survive are often seen to use welfare because of “their laziness, drug use, lack of human capital, personal choice, or other personal shortcomings or irresponsible behavior.” The mothers in the study conducted by Seccombe, James, and Walters found that women receiving public assistance were all too aware of these stigma. These women understood that other people looked at them differently when they found out that they were on welfare. The surprising finding in this study, however, is that while individual women saw themselves as victims of a system, they stigmatized other women on public assistance under the same stereotypes that they were subjected to by others.
Major Ethical Issues of Solitary Confinement Solitary confinement can affect a person’s physical and mental health simply because it deprives an individual of their need to interact with others on a daily basis.
