Torture creates fake evidence as well as creating more violent conditions for soldiers in the wars for example wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The methods used for torture are so inhumane that they cannot be tolerated. For those reasons and countless others, I believe that torture is not necessary for national security. The public believes that National Security uses torture to save the lives of many innocent people, and they also believe that it is temporary pain which is not true. Being tortured becomes psychological a victim of torture will never forget what they might have gone through especially if they were innocent.
Otherwise, human choices will lead man to God. Deception likewise creates an obvious irony in The Screwtape Letters. This lie has doomed the demons to consume and distrust one another. The predatory relationship between Screwtape and Wormwood bears testament to this. We will investigate how deception and its results
As evidence he mentions, "Worship power, you will end up feeling weak and afraid, and you will need ever more power over others to numb you to your own fear" (Wallace, 8). He mentions that in order to keep fighting you will need power and if that power runs out then even if needed take other people's powers and keep fighting until you numb your own fear. Once the mind starts controlling you, you won't be able to do anything because no matter how hard you try you won't be able to get rid of the judgements or the comments from your head. Those judgements and comments start making room in your mind, you will become powerless, and you won't be able to fight any more in fact it will make you so weak that it will start becoming a habit. When thinking back to how the mind starts controlling you I think back to my situation and how I immediately started judging that person without even thinking of what they are going through.
Coporal Punishment which is the act of violence toward a child who has misbehaved is argued by many to either be abusive to the child or helpful. Some people argue that children which expierence coporal punishment are more likely to grow up and become vandals and thieves while others argue that coporal punishment makes a child tougher and prepares them for the real world. While Coporal Punishment was more accepted in the past its acceptance is declining more as we head to the future. The media has made Coporal Punishment feel wrong and abusive and while parents might still approve of it, they might not feel pollitcally correct talking about it. In my opinion Coporal Punishment can be effective but can also be abusive depending on how your
Eichmann’s banality made him no less guilty (Arendt Eichmann). What Arendt did do was open a massive divide between two versions of a painful past: a monstrosity or a normality. Arendt’s critics wanted Eichmann to be the clearest verdict of evil that history has put on record. Arendt disputed not that he was evil, but rather the nature and consequence of such evil. Arendt casts Eichmann into a theory of evil and a narrative of history which, to many of her counterparts, is not only outrageous but perhaps terrifying.
People should not misuse the language because it exemplifies another form of sin. The misuse the language tends to lead to downfalls. Both Francesca and Cavalcante end up in hell and Ronaiah Tuiasosopo feels extremely guilty. As a very powerful tool, language should be used
Dumas has made it very clear that Dantes’ view of justice is getting vengeance and he will go to any limit to create misfortune to the people that caused it to him. When people are so simple yet nice, people will try to take advantage of them and try to alter them. If they get farther than them, they will usually hate causing them to go to an extent of doing something to the person. Everyone has a different understanding of justice through the experiences that they have
Like the question I wondered above, what happens when people do not learn from their consequences and continue to behave a certain way? We often start to think the worse and believe they need psychological help but maybe there is more to this theory. When a person has a negative emotional status they tend to do things in the negative form, and also their thinking and actions sometimes do not even make sense to them because they do not do it purposely they do it because they feel that is what is the right thing to do. When a person steals they know what the consequence is however they still commit the deed, we need to be able to understand why the person did what they did and what took them to that road. This emotional status causes issues and behavior that can lead to consequences that are not
Some of the guards’ behaviors were cruel and immoral. The prisoners seemed to be under a lot of pressure. This experiment was out of line. If I were a participant in this experiment as a guard, I would have lay low and be aware that this is only an experiment. I would not take charge; I would correct the prisoners if they were wrong, but I will always try to know my limit.
Sometimes it is best to understand the law first before obeying it. When one thinks a law is unjust, they will go out of their way to go against it and do something about it. At a certain point, one doesn’t have to act accordingly to what they don’t believe in, but they can’t do whatever pleases them. There has been many controversies involving the act of non violence civil disobedience. Although most feel like breaking an unjust law might be the best solution to what they think is right, in reality, I agree to the fact that people are afraid to face the consequences that are given after their actions.
It may well produce inaccurate information, because while under torture the victim’s main goal is to stop the pain, he or she will say anything to stop the pain regardless of if it’s the truth or not. Because of the knowledge of this, interrogators can never be quite sure if what the victim is saying is the actual truth. He will continue torturing the victim and nothing will ever be solved. History offers no modern examples of the effectiveness of harsh interrogation techniques. There are many other ways of interrogation that are available and more effective.
Prejudices damage not only those they are inflicted on but those who hold them. When humans enable their prejudices to dictate their actions they are often left having lost the chance at knowing some extraordinary people. Clinging to prejudices is very tempting, because being wrong about them would mean it was necessary to change, and change is a scary thing. Despite this, a necessary lesson to learn is that seeing the truth and being proved wrong are all necessary to cause change, and change is necessary to become a better
After that, I will say what I think the four way test means. What do many people think the four way test means to them, if it just another tedious test to them? So, is it ok to start a fight? By using step one of the four way test, it cannot be applied to this problem. However, step 2 can be applied to this, I think the answer is no because if you start a fight, it will be mean to the people doing it, so it is not fair.
