As a defence lawyer, from the facts, drowned out from Rudy Baylor’s self-response, one must identify its reactions as self defence and not be found guilty. We can conclude its reaction by determining the act committed against Kelly Riker’s husband was reasonable, and the court or jury should weight in the circumstances from previous situations. Rudy Baylor was communicating with Kelly Riker regarding his previous win about the bankruptcy of the insurance company. Following a few minutes later, Kelly Riker’s husband came knocking aggressively at the door. When Kelly Riker decided to open the door, her husband had the intention of hurting her for being with Rudy Baylor and had planned out of taking her away.
She follows a majority of the steps laid out in Campbell’s, “Hero’s Journey”. This means the text of Antigone could be considered a heroic tale depending on how one looks at what Antigone did and how they abstract the ideas and meanings of the text. What she did went against the best overall affect she could receive; however, it allowed a proper burial which meant her brother was able to get into the afterlife. Polyneices did not receive proper justice, although he acted wrongly against Eteocles he should not be eternally damned by not receiving an afterlife. Martin Luther King Jr acted in such a way that allowed the people he fought for get equal rights and opportunities as those oppressing them.
Ancient Hindu Law allowed husband to correct his wife by beating her with a rope or to break bamboo ensuring that no bones broke .Hindus men could keep as many wife as they wish and that was not open to objection but as far as wife were concerned that was not possible. The husband keeping mistress is considered to be the sign of his chivalry, manhood and capability. Society also in that case looks upon permissibly while in a case of wife, it is looked upon with distrust. Over the centuries and even today, as we stagger towards 21st century society shamelessly accepts this cruel
He expresses things in the way that sound natural. And he was not too formal with his expression. In this novel, he wrote about the political and sexual terror of the Trujillato and how this haunted the family across three generations. He explaining the bad things about the fuku curse, he creatively laid it out so everyone can understand him. Like for instance, in a very
Law 129 states that a married woman who commits adultery would be tied and thrown into the water together with the man she was with, murder seems like an extreme punishment for adultery, divorce maybe but not murder. Law 195 is unjust because the consequence of striking your father father is getting decapitated, and again this is unjust because it could have possibly been an act of self-defense. Overall Hammurabi’s Code were inhumane because it had violent punishments for nonviolent crimes, and it treated the people of Babylonia differently because of their socioeconomic
He then later says, “good lives are made so by discipline, we keep the laws then, and the law makers, and no women shall seduce us,” (pg.218). Although, many say that “good lives are made by discipline,” it is still harsh to kill someone for just burying a former king. By saying that “no women shall seduce us,” that made us understand that he didn’t want to be persuaded into undoing the punishment. Lastly, another example no how he downgrades people can be found in the same scene. It has the same context as the last quote but this time, the choragos is trying to reason with Creon to listen to someone.
Unless Jason cared for her, Medea would have been killed or thrown in prison for what she said about him and the royal family, and it is because of Jason’s intervention that she was not. While Jason could have been afraid banishing her would only anger her more, his forthright tone when talking to Medea is shown with the choice of words in lines such as “your foolish mind” (450) and “your stupid attitude” (457) show that Jason is not afraid of offending nor angering Medea. If he only cared about preserving his bloodline, then she could be dead and the children would be raised in the royal household, which we see is a definite possibility that Jason does not exploit. Jason could have easily allowed the royalty to act on their fear to better secure his position as well as his childrens’, but he does not and instead attempts to defend and save Medea to the best of his abilities. Jason put his own societal position at risk by attempting to help Medea, showing that he was willing to hurt his own reputation to assist her.
Due to instrumentality, what was violated was Symkyn’s property- the two men committed a crime against Symkyn 's possession of the two women, not rape itself. The two scholars were aware of laws, stating they had the right to his wife and daughter because “ther is a lawe” (4180). Ethics is not valued in this situation but the law of ownership and possession of objects. The law that John mentions is supposed to validate the women’s rape in motivation caused by Symkyn 's theft. The Reeve’s Tale shows the value of two women is as equivalent to a sleazy trick caused by Symkyn, to be revenged by raping.
A woman’s holy marriage represented her family’s honor, and so her “purity” was a highly valued commodity. This is a statement of value that spread as a societal way to further oppress women. It was and to some degree still is believed by men and women. They are the prisoners, and they saw “…only their own shadows, or the shadows of one another, which the fire throws on the opposite wall of the cave…” Because men were in power
(Rubin) This can be seen from the tradition typical in Kazakh families to learn the “жеті ата”, the names of seven closest ancestors from father’s line: father, grand-father great-grand father and so on. My peer mentioned that he also needed to learn this. The rationale for this tradition lies in Kazakhs’ giving a lot of importance to necessity to avoid incest as people who had intersections in these “жеті ата.” This also shows the highly negative attitude of Kazakh people towards incest and taking serious measures to avoid it (Levi-Strauss). And it fits with the Rivers’ argument about the importance of pedigrees being regulation of marriage to avoid mixtures of the blood line. Kazakh people still use the pedigree for this purpose which has deep roots in the tradition.
