This author agrees that torture should be used because in war we have dropped bombs on innocent people that have either killed or left children, woman, and good men in critical condition, which is close to being torture. In the texts he says," There is no escaping the fact that whenever we drop bombs, we drop them with knowledge that some number of children will be blinded, disemboweled, paralyzed, orphaned, and killed by them". C. Fried and was against torture, he explains that Washington said to treat the captured in battle with humanity so they won't have a reason to complain that we were hurting people like those in the British army. He is stating that torture should be allowed with rules instead of just torturing somebody to the extreme for some information. In the text it says, " We know, for example, if Sheikh Khalid Mohammed, a very high value detainee, was subjected to waterboarding.
The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you. Everybody makes mistake and they try to learn and move on from them but killing someone intentionally would stick with that person forever and they would never be the same. Therefore, some people debate on whether he was completely out of place for killing Beatty or did the best thing for society. Although Montag killed Beatty, many people debate over whether it was the right thing to do or not. Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore.
Probably because he was a hood, he killed a young boy, and he stole from convenience stores. But even though he may have done those things at the beginning of the story by the end he regretted all of it and wished he had more time to go back and fix it and be a better person. To be a hero you must be able to be brave even if you’re facing danger straight in the face. You must also be willing to make sacrifice even if you’re sure you’ll die. So in conclusion Johnny Cade is the hero of The Outsiders because he died because he went into a burning building to save the
To some, survival is considered a “natural instinct,” and it comes naturally to one, so when faced with a dangerous situation we often tend to go to refer to this. For example, during “The 1972 Andes Flight Disaster,” some of the people that survived only did it by “collectively making a decision to eat flesh from the bodies of their dead comrades, beginning with the pilot” (CommonLit staff 7) If some people wouldn 't have done this, everyone would have died and that would make this horrifying tragedy even worse than it was. According to the story, Is Survival Selfish?, “Self- preservation is supposedly an instinct” (Wallace 317).
They just were born thinking that way and don 't know what other way to think, which explains why the two groups hate each other. These events could lead up to a bunch of different endings, but one possibility is that Cherry is going to help the greasers and somehow they will become closer as a whole group. Another possible theory would be that Ponyboy and Johnny will get away with their murder because they saved the little kids in the fire. Although, this could also back fire on them, because they caused the fire, and had run away from
This event could have been easily avoided by Mercutio choosing his actions differently and wisely to avoid getting killed by Tybalt, or he could have calmed down instead of engaging in violence. Because Mercutio dies, Romeo gets out of control and ends up killing Tybalt, therefore getting him banished. Because of the evidence and examples, Mercutio and Benvolio are at fault for the deaths of Juliet and
With a fencing match and a poison tipped sword he believes he will be able to kill him. In act five Ophelia gives us another reason to believe that pride is the cause for the tragedies. “...If I drown myself wittingly, it argues an act, and an act hath three branches-it is to act, to do, to perform. Argal, she drowned herself wittingly” (Act 5, Scene 1, Lines 10-13). Everyone thought Ophelia drowned on an accident but, she actually killed herself.
In the story “Button, Button,” the Lewis family was given a choice to push a button to kill someone for $50,000. I would choose to not push the button and to contact the police to notify them about it. Unlike Norma, I believe killing someone you don’t know is definitely still murder if you do it willingly. The prize for pushing the button seems too good to be true. Even though you are murdering someone, it seems like you should be punished as well if you are getting the large amount of money.
Ultimately, the pilot indirectly declared she must end her life in order for the greater good to save “the six men waiting for the fever serum” (Godwin 6). Understandingly, she agrees when providing the explanation of how she would rather “go alone” instead of taking “seven others with” her (Godwin 6). An aspect of guilt was inevitable when realizing Barton had killed an innocent young girl to save others, although he considered himself responsible effecting in the countless
