Hazel said to George, “ Take the handicapped off, it 's only here so that you can relax.” George said, “If that how it was, we 're all going back to judging and comparing.” Vonnegut’s thoughts on individualism are that being individual and acting a way that is unique doesn 't fit into our society and won 't be accepted. In the story, a “rebel” decided to take of his handicapped, and to become different and be free in how he is but he was brought down and shot dead by a officer. In my view, that officer was representing society and he did not accept change. Being different is wrong, everyone has to be the same, act the same, look the same etc. The whole point of this book, is because people are different.
As the precise definition of justice cannot be definitively stated, the line separating just from unjust actions is incredibly obscure. Many factors may influence an individual’s perception of what constitutes justice, such as time period, culture, or personal morals. Thus, while an act may be considered righteous in one context, the same act may be ruled unjust in other contexts. For instance, when Odysseus finally returns home to Ithaca, as retribution for defiling his home and attempting to court his wife, Odysseus murders all of Penelope’s suitors. The extremely graphic depiction of his retribution had appeared almost superfluous, causing the morality of his actions to be brought into question.

The actions of the police officers showed a clear confusion about the appropriate use of discretion. Also in Scotland, ministers intend to ban the police from using stop and search without legal cause after an independent inquiry found it to be questionable lawfulness and legitimacy.

Though a simple statement, it causes Montag to regret the awful burnings and do something that he will be remembered for.
Though some completely disregard the Law of Moses, others have thought of it as unchristian and have given the law a message of death. Moses has favorably shown a doctrine of a law that can only create death in sinners, and this doctrine should have had a better effect on people (Calvin 223). This heresy needed to be abolished or else the aim of the Mosaic Law would be distorted. The repeal of the Moral Law was mainly caused by the belief of the law as a curse. The law was believed to “condemn and destroy” sinners, but had not completed the action (Calvin 223).
Evan Vipond (2015) states that the law “ignores the historical and systemic forms of oppression that are enforced through state and civil acts of violence” (16). It was this issue of history that was missing in Steven Tyler Kummerfield and Alexander Dennis Ternowetsky trial and as such it is important to acknowledge that George became objectified and personified as indignant, deviant and deserving of the rape and murder she endured. In Justice Malone’s instructions to the jury, he informed them that it would be “dangerous” for the jury to return a guilty verdict, presumably on the basis of the precedence that it would set, however, this instead reveals a larger problem of the Canadian legal system seen from the perspective of the ongoing legacy and presence of colonialism and how it continues to both shape and form through case laws. Today, there remains an urgent need to explore how intersections of race, gender, and class in prostitution exist in
