I personally learned that when people act the way they do, there is a reason behind it, even when it seems their actions are crazy. Although these acts of murder are another level of radicalism, we need to realize why Shelley showed how greed and torment killed not only the life of the monster, but the tormenter himself. It needs to be looked at by society that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, and we need to treat all people equally. Earlier I used to feel hatred for the anger people showed negatively, but now my thoughts have changed to analyze the reason of their anger instead of just seeing the
Examples like this persuade people that revenge is not justified. However, sometimes you have to put yourself in a victim's shoes. If that was your kid, wouldn’t you want to get revenge on the murderer. Your whole view of revenge would probably change. It is easy for someone to say revenge is bad when they have never felt the need for revenge.
Through Will, Bradbury expresses that there is evil in everyone, but what matters is whether you act on it. "There are times when we're all autumn people." (38.43) Everyone has the potential to be evil, but the purest people choose not to act on their tainted desires. "Dad? Am I a good person?
Tom Robinson and Boo Radley were mockingbirds because they were not a threat to society, yet were punished for being human. Holocaust victims were alienated in a reprehensible way. The Nazis did not care how they treated their own. They shot people who had a soul just like they did. They burned people that were human beings just like they were.
The ultimate consequence given for an evil action cannot be simply determined by the physical outcome of the sin, but has to take into account the intent of the sinner. That being said, the darkness of one’s heart only correlates with the intentions of the evil doer, while in modern times people are pushed to a desensitisation to some of the worst sins imaginable. That bribe you made to your sibling was only the beginning of the ‘small’ sins
The Negligent Carnage in Darfur Genocides are almost always started when a malevolent person who has so much hatred leads blind people to commit atrocious acts. In many countries people feel marginalized and discriminated against. In Darfur of 2003, two rebel groups went against the government and claimed to be oppressed (“Darfur Genocide”). The Khartoum government felt attacked, so he ordered the Janjaweed to brutally and maliciously raid communities. The lamentable events that caused the Darfur Genocide exemplify how many factors led to the gruesome killing spree including the Khartoum government harsh actions, the rebel groups going against the government, and the Janjaweed’s terrible intent to slaughter and molest Darfurians.
The perpetrators gave the order to the collaborators to do the killing and the collaborators agreed with them and collaborated to do the job. The collaborators could have stopped the perpetrators by telling them no and talking them out of it. The bystanders could have helped the situation by doing something instead of staying quiet. In Elie Wiesel: The Perils of Indifference, Elie talks about indifference and how it affects people, “Indifference, after all, is more dangerous than anger and hatred” (2). Indifference has a bigger impact on people compared to anger and hatred.
The reason of this inability is our morality. Most of the sins that a man can do on the earth are forgivable but there are some sins that simply are unforgivable. The Bible has a notion of an unforgivable sin or a sin against the Holy Spirit. The sin is against the Holy spirit if it is done deliberately and it comes from such evil heart that cannot be changed (The Bible's Viewpoint 29). So I agree with Langer when he tells us, “The mass murder of European Jewry is unforgivable crime (187)” because their hands are stained with the blood of Jewish men, women, and children.
Although anti-semitism plays a huge role in this, you don’t really have any reason other than hate to hurt the Jews. “ It was already foretold that all the blame would be on the Jews.” WWI is not the Jews fault, one of the reasons it started was because of the secret alliances. Germans blame the Jews of WWI because of anti-semitism they should know one the other reason why WWI started was also because of
The Nazi’s did not leave a single person alive and showed no mercy. The Nazi’s killed the innocent Jews, because they believed they were right and did not feel guilty. Even though they did not like killing at times; on that night Goethe says how he “wishes this night would be over,” they still killed because it was right in the eyes of their society. This killing of innocent people, due to the fact that society believes they are evil, shows that the Nazi’s in the movie are ethical
Destiny Colon I definitely think that malingering or faking insanity should have an added punishment for the offender who is trying to get away with the crimes that they committed. I feel like if they have some sort of way to show the offenders that malingering will cause more harm than good, there would less false insanity pleas (even though the numbers are already low). Malingering only really postpones the trail and makes it harder for everybody involved in the case. Zanathul Ahmed I do think that the media likes to exaggerate the amount of times that someone actually pleas for insanity. It’s a much more compelling story for a show if they have someone raving about they’re crazy.
The predisposition that evil is the nature of mankind is a categorical truth. Arguers with this statement would state that there is kindness and light in everybody. These romantic critics are too naive to believe what is right in front of them in day to day life. Although these ignorant statements are true, it is very hard for a person to overcome their evil impulses. Not only it is hard but when they do, someone else inflicts evil upon them.
Whether these evils be moral or natural, humans have the free will to react to them in whatever manner they choose. Therefore, God’s test lies in a human’s reaction to the suffering they receive from the evils inflicted upon them. Often times, in cases of illness or natural disaster, when one deals with extreme loss, they also may lose God in the process. Essentially, there are two reactions that can occur when humans deal with worldly evils. When one suffers from acts of evil, they may question God’s existence because of his permittance of these evils, and may even denounce God.
The law of course justifies the Nazi Holocaust as rightfully wrong, with that said it requires a due process for the Nazi members to adhere for forgiveness from the law. Unfortunate like Amery discusses, “ that too many criminals are spared by the letter of the law..”(108). One is innocent until proven guilty, but is one really innocent? If the law clears a Nazi member from all charges, can he automatically be forgiven? Even if Wiesenthal forgave the dying SS man, how would his friends back at the camp, Arthur and Josek view Wisenthal if he had forgiven a man that caused so much harm?
