Lao-Tzu believes that when a governing body complicates itself with laws and be involved in the livelihood of its people too much, it would have adverse effects. This is because their actions draw the people’s attention to disheartening conditions like crime, war, and poverty. Therefore, Lao-Tzu says the Master should leads with humility by understanding that they are no different from the ones they govern and act from below the people, as to not appear overbearing while being sensitive to the people’s interest.

Within society, one can argue hazing from multiple sides of the spectrum. On one side, one can argue that hazing is unnecessary in society due to its horrifying effects upon both an individual and a group.

So instead of locking them up we should start promoting peace and welcome, instead of ironically raging terror over those who run because of terrors. We need to look at the roots of our problem, and improve our society as a whole. These people that are referred to as “illegal”, are humans too. They do not, in any way, deserve to die. And that’s why our government proposing the law to extend the time a person can be held in poorly maintained detention centres with cold-hearted treatment, is absurd.
What Kozol, instead of focusing how to help illiterate people to solve this problem, wants them to be portrayed as victims of society and people who are liberate. So what he does is he focusing on the problems created for them due to their “illiterate
In this book, Alice Howland, a fifty year old woman, is working at Harvard University as a cognitive psychology professor, going to meetings and seminars, and traveling to different countries, before her life was completely changed. In the beginning she was forgetting things such as where her phone was, what words to use, and when to get on a plane. Being concerned, Alice visits her doctor, who then tests her memory, and asks Alice to get some tests done in case it is something worse.

Too shocked after the neurologist diagnosis her with early-onset Alzheimer 's disease, Alice eventually tells her husband and children.
On the other hand, if they decline to harm the other person in the experiment then they would be acting against the social norms where good citizens defer to legitimate authority.

Noah Roberts C. Young ENG3U1 3/26/2018 Misuse of Authority: Will the Crucible Crumble A difficult choice to make is whether maintaining ones morals is more important than aiding another. In Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, many of the characters face a misuse of authority and have a choice to make which is either to break their morals so they can help others, or stand by them and watch what happens to the people that they protect.
