This quotation seems to be an organizational-wide mantra like an official slogan to organized crime. At all, the mafiosi refers themselves as businessman to conceal their hideous and violent acts from the general people around them. They tend to use euphemisms like “family business” and “an offer he can’t refuse” while speaking among themselves. Their manipulated acts are well orchestrated so as to convince the policeman, judges and congressman that they are legitimate businessman. It also serves as a reassurance for
It is likely that Marlowe refrains from implicating Carmen in order to spare General Sternwood’s feelings. Marlowe acknowledges his own deep-seated loyalty towards his clients, declaring that he uses “what little guts and intelligence the Lord gave [him] and a willingness to get pushed around in order to protect a client” (Chandler 114). However, there is one display of loyalty in the novel that Marlowe does not fully condone. After Carmen Sternwood murdered Rusty Regan, Vivian Regan covers up her sister’s crime in order to protect Carmen and prevent her father, General Sternwood from knowing what transpired. When Marlowe deduces this, he gives Vivian three days to leave and have Carmen institutionalized.
Perhaps the act of murder could be seen as a success to Brutus, since he did do so for the greater good and not for personal passion, leading to him thinking that what he did was right because it was not for himself and was what a Stoic would do. However, he did not understand that a true Stoic will not attempt to change anything since he will accept everything in nature’s course. Thus, by analyzing the pursuit of Stoicism of Brutus to determine the reasons for his downfall, we can decipher whether the failure of Brutus was his own fault. Brutus’ downfall was his own doing because his actions solely depended on how much they satisfied his desires.
The extreme collectivist community potrayed shows the polar opposite of egoism. Equality immediately gets set appart by his intellectual abilities leading to his substantial discoveries. Evidently his ideas are rejected and he’s shunned for his intelligence and creativity. Nevertheless, this is for the better, for it is then that he perhaps has his greatest thought: “To be free a man must be free of his brothers. That is freedom.
The indirect characterization of the Pardoner, in consideration of his objective stance towards his own wrongdoings, reveals him to be a man with conscious partial to his intents and basic motivation. The Pardoner explicitly states his reason for sermonizing as his “exclusive purpose is to win and not at all to castigate their sin” (p. 243). With brutal honesty and in meticulous fashion, the Pardoner embraces his love for profit and monetary gains in spite of his pious occupation. Though the actions and impressions of the Pardoner are both distasteful and lacking in morals, it is the same hypocritical disposition that highlights the depth and good of the character. While not righteous or honorable in any traditional sense, the Pardoner argues that he is appropriate to preach against his personal vice of greed due to his understanding of the sin and that in the process he is able to truly assist others in the relinquishment of their faults.
In various situations, it is prompted by the moral values that are inherent in them. In the case of Michael Woodford, he believed that he had to be honest in his performance of duty as head of Olympus. He knew that his life and career could be harmed by exposing the truth, but he insisted on doing what was in the eyes of the executives at Olympus, a treacherous act. Indeed, the cost to Woodford for blowing the whistle was great. He was fired from his position as President and CEO and all belongings related to that job were confiscated.

I agree with Epicurus’ teachings on desire and happiness. In today’s society people make decisions based on unnecessary desires in an attempt to find happiness. You could even go as far as to say that this is the root of society’s problems. Today, money equals happiness. This leads to corruption and a majority of our population living a materialistic
page 43. Since the sudden wealth can make people selfish or greedy, Steinbeck comments on this through the life of his neighbors. Using his thoughtful, interesting style John Steinbeck is able to convey messages about the world 's complex problems through his book, The
Throughout Othello, the ideas of honesty and reputation are used as leverage, mostly for Iago to gain power. The advice Iago gives to adversaries is sound in their eyes, but he plays upon the naïve and trusting nature, especially with Cassio. Iago consistently refers to himself as things he is not unbeknownst to the other characters, and here alludes that he is honest. The characters believe his every word and believe him to be an honest man because he may have been seen as just that in the past.

Gorbachev was not deceitful, but a reformer who wanted to reform, change for Russia and end the Cold War. I agree that no president had subdued Russia, but the economic suppressed them when it collapsed. I enjoyed reading your post. We both answered the same question, knowing a different viewpoint was insightful.
When free to think without the bond of education, Huck contemplates the reasons for doing right or wrong. The seemingly amusing question of “what’s the use you learning to do right, when it 's troublesome to do right and ain 't no trouble to do wrong, and the wages is just the same" provokes the development of his value system (128). Underneath the humor, Twain provides a complex idea of the reasons for actions. As a dishonest character, Huck journeys through life creating false identities; therefore, the commitment to tell the truth, despite consequences, signifies the growth of his ethicalness. Huck’s internal decision of him “going to chance it; I’ll up and tell the truth this time” to Miss Mary Jane about the duke and Dauphin being frauds adds a comical aspect because of the rarity of Huck’s honesty (239).
One of the most drastic results of the stock market crash was the invention of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Securities and Exchange commission 's job was to set brand new rules and punish any who violated the laws. This led to the market being more structured and disallowed many of the shady practices that were previously used. The Securities and Exchange Commission required that, “companies publicly offering securities for investment dollars must tell the public the truth about their businesses, the securities they are selling, and the risks involved in investing,” and “People who sell and trade securities – brokers, dealers, and exchanges – must treat investors fairly and honestly, putting investors ' interests first” (“Stock Market Crashes”). Previously the stock broker 's main focus was on giving loans and selling stocks regardless of the risk of investing for the investor or the investor 's money’s well-being.
