. it is hard doing certain things when you have kids and I also believe not everyone is meant to be a parent. All the reason explains in the reading about how people would like to focus on their careers, themselves, their spouses, their life. I disagree with the Bishop about married couple not having children, I think married couple who decide to be Childfree can also have a good marriage and be happy. I also do nothing that he should
What once sparked his creation was now what turned off his happiness. Not taking responsibility of his actions and not having a strong word lead him to failure. Having priorities set straight and knowing what to sacrifice and when can make all the difference. If you do what makes you happy, the sacrifices will not fell as harsh and there will not be any
By doing so, they void themselves of taking responsibility for their actions, thus allowing them to leave their children without any feelings of guilt or remorse. Their leaving, however, will impact their children more than they know. Their overlooking of the way growing up without a maternal figure impacts a child, shows their ignorance and selfishness. In trying to rebel
Relationships such as Montag’s and Mildred’s were based on nothing but the illusion of love because neither of them showed emotion or affection towards one another. With the help of technology, it was possible for people to distract themselves from the unhappiness in their lives and also proved why relationships like Montag’s were ruined. Along with the help of technology it was also very clear the dissimulation of euphoria only hurt people rather than made their lives better. It is proven that it is better to face reality rather than defying
Although he disagrees with traditional reasons for taking suicide to be immoral, he nevertheless agrees that suicide is in fact immoral. In his characterization of the “free man” at the end of part of the Ethics, Spinoza argues that a perfect rational being “always acts honestly, not deceptively”. Spinoza reasons that if a perfect rational being misleading, he would do so “from the dictate of reason” but then it would be rational to act in that way, and “men would be better advised to agree only in words, and be contrary to one another in fact”. One problem that this argument raises is conflict between Spinoza’s claim that a perfect rational being would always act honestly and his claim that such a being would never do anything that brought about its own
Her only option left was to let Gatsby take the blame and walk away with no consequences. If Daisy had truly loved Gatsby, it is possible that she could have bought her way out of the situation, but she didn’t love Gatsby, and this is what led to him taking the blame. Despite Daisy’s clear nonchalance towards Gatsby’s feelings Gatsby still felt as if Daisy loved him, why else would he take the blame for something so massive, he wouldn’t have done that for someone who was only a friend. Daisy continues to deceive Gatsby because she knows that he will do whatever she wants. This connects to the entire book because Daisy is a deceitful woman, and the book as a whole portrays woman as unfaithful, an example of this
She now sees that her father and Torvald insisted her to accept and understand it to be “great wrong” to do what she wanted what was best for herself rather than what everyone else desires her to do. That stunted her development as an adult and as a human being. She has made “nothing” of her life because she has existed only to please those she loved. Following this realization, Nora leaves Torvald in order to make something of her life and—for the first time—to exist as a person independent of other
He is striven for the wrongdoing of murder, however isn't judged exclusively on his activities amid the previously mentioned wrongdoing. He is judged on his particular acts that society sees as foolish as per its social measures. Meursault's diverse point of view separates him from the people around him, and thus, he is seen as a danger to society's ethical standard. Indifference is perceived as abnormal since no one is used to being “different”; therefore, society sees Meursault as strange when he does conform to these normalities. He is unwilling to give up his logic and, along these lines, is indicted because of his powerlessness to accommodate as society plans.
The closer she gets to success, the further she strays from her own independence and self improvement. “She shuns conviction, choosing to infer/ tenets of every mind except her own.” Once she settles down with her family, she should be happy but is not. She has sacrificed her worldly ways and pursuit of knowledge for the comfort of traditional homemaking. While this may be rewarding for some, it quite obviously does not satisfy her. She relies on the wealth of her husband and sacrifices her own independence.
Polus believes doing whatever is good for oneself is what matters. He does not understand or really accept this claim that it is better to suffer injustice than to commit injustice because he believes justice is relative. Polus claims that he believes justice depends on the individual person and what is beneficial for oneself. However, Socrates denounces this idea that only good matters this in his scene of brutal murder when Socrates says “and if it seems good to me that one of them must have his head smashed, it shall straightway be smashed” (469d5). Polus denounces this instance, saying it is different.
