One his theories, stated in his book called Leviathan said that people are not able rule themselves because of how selfish mankind is and they need to be ruled by an iron fist. His political theory was that was also stated in Leviathan was that we should respect government authority under all circumstances to avoid violence. Hobbes was scared of the outcome of the social contract which meant people could get rid of the government if they were unhappy with what they were getting. In order to make well with the social contract he states in Leviathan that people should be completely obedient to the government. His reasoning was that if there was no government, there would be chaos.
My honesty is broke, Elizabeth; I am no good man. Nothing’s spoiled by giving them this lie that were not rotten long before” (Miller 1352). He is ultimately giving up his confession even though he knows it is not the right thing to do. A previous break to Proctor’s Christianity beliefs is when he commits adultery; however, instead of standing up for himself he gives into the court’s desire. When John Proctor confesses, his actions prove a huge weakness John Proctor has.
Totalitarianism is a strict form of government with no means of privacy. People had to be careful of what they said and did because they never knew if they were being watched. This is a huge exemplification of loss of freedoms because the people had no privacy from the government. Another freedom that Stalin removed was religion. He stated that “the party cannot be neutral towards religion, and it conducts anti-religious propaganda against all religions because it stands for science” (Document 4).
The Grand Inquisitor sees it, Christ has actually done mankind a disservice by keeping people from obtaining security. Most people he says, are too weak to tolerate the burden of free will. As the outcome, he says that “the one who questioned you then,” sense Satan, was right and Christ was wrong. Ivan believes that mankind is not competent to handle the magnificent trouble of free will, and should have given a leader to obey
No,George is not justified in the shooting of Lennie, According to the Religion, Law, and Premeditation. First, George is not justified due to Religion.

Anyone physically different from themselves, the people of Waknuk regard as “abominations” and insulting to the pure image of God based on a fallible old book; Nicholson’s Repentances. Likewise, anyone of a different religious sect, Daesh slaughters with out of context rulings from their religious book. The KKK discriminates against people of colour, regarding them in a very similar way to the way the people of Waknuk regard Deviations. Moreover, calling the Old People’s society (probably secular) a state of “[prevailing] irreligious arrogance” displays their belief that only one way of being is acceptable, and anything else is worthy of punishment (Wyndham 40). Not only does this exist on a blatant scale as we see with these extreme groups, it also exists in many countries like Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and Iran.
Christophe defends himself by saying the sickness comes from God, as a punishment for their heathen behaviour. However, the Wendat are not easily converted. They refuse to believe that only man has an Orenda, they deem that everything has an Orenda. This presents a major conflict for Christophe. He must fend for his dogma against the wicked Gosling and her unholy followers.
Their own Protestant beliefs and anti-superstition way of life is not the way to hunt Dracula. Instead, they need to use and participate in superstitious practices just as those in Transylvania do to ward off and kill Dracula and other vampires. Protestants do not believe that symbols and relics can save them from damnation, rather they believe everything is in God’s hands. Yet, throughout the novel, they use various symbols, like the Holy Cross, as protection. This can symbolize that science and rationality may not solve every problem.
Many believe that as a result of this, God will not heal their mental illness through any form of religious therapy. They feel that they have to find their own way apart from God to rid themselves of their suffering. So, to incorporate religion into sessions with individuals with this negative mindset, usually worsens their mental illness symptoms. Someone may also feel that they are being neglected or mistreated by their religious community; therefore, many are eager separate themselves from religion. When a person is struggling in faith, religious therapy proves to negatively affect the individual and worsen their mental
Discuss whether the existence of evil disproves the existence of God A major argument used by atheists against the existence of God is the existence of evil in the world. In philosophy evil is viewed in two different ways: moral evil, which is a result of human action, and natural evil, which caused by a fault in the natural world; the consequence of both types of evil is suffering. Due to this God’s presence is questioned by many non believers, because an omnibenevolent God wouldn’t allow suffering to his people; as a result of this Thomas Aquinas saw a frequent conclusion from philosophers that stated if God existed, there would be no evil in the world, but there is evil; therefore, God does not exist (1917). However, the existence of evil and suffering for a religious
