There aren’t any justifications for discriminating against others based on their appearance. Johnny and his teammates created offensive stereotypical caricatures of African Americans followed by hateful comments which can’t be ignored.

They feel that their first amendment, which is the right to freedom of speech, protects them from any consequences. However, we don’t feel they should be exempt from punishment due to their freedom of speech; their posts were gravely inappropriate and offensive.
If Mr. Bucket, the attorney, used duty-based ethics he would not bride the judge in order to win the case for his client. Under the religious ethical standard he would not pay the judge off because even though the act may seem fair the act is not justifiable and is immoral. This would be just like Robin Hood who is still seen as a theif eventhough he was redistrubution the wealth to those who needed it more. Furthermore, Bucket would also say no because of kantian ethics. To use this form of ethics one must ask, if everyone bribed the judge to win their case how would it affect our justice system?

Dr. Jekyll is viewed as a smart man with a lot of knowledge, however, due to Jekyll not being satisfied with his life, he is determined to get more out of his live and is willing to do anything to fulfill his determination. Dr. Jekyll expresses this when he states, “[A] grinding in the bones, deadly nausea, and a horror of the spirit that cannot be exceeded at the hour of birth or death. Then these agonies began swiftly to subside… [t]here was something strange in my sensations, something indescribably new and, from its very novelty, incredibly sweet. I felt younger, lighter, happier in body within I was conscious of a heady recklessness, a current of disordered sensual images running like a millrace in my fancy, a solution of the bonds of obligation, an unknown but not an innocent freedom of the soul.” (Stevenson 57). Dr. Jekyll is in a state of happiness at this point of the text.
They know they can do what they want, and then gain back their respect for simply nothing. They can beat up the greasers because society cares nothing for them, and would side with the socs instead. The cops also see good in the socs more than the greasers, they are threatened by the the money of the socs. They aren't threatened by what they see to be poor teens, that steel and smoke. In general everyone in society is threatened by their money, they feel helpless against their money.
Even when he buys the prostitute he could not have sex with her because he saw her as a girl not as a toy to have sex with. Holden also protect woman from being bad mouthed like with when Luce said, “she’s probably the Whore of New Hampshire by this time” Salinger 160. Holden responds with “That isn't nice.

I think utilitarianism basically means that doing what is right should be placed above all else. In Barnard Madoff case he stood against everything utilitarianism stood for. An example would running an illegal ponzi scheme he was not thinking about how the people he was taking money from were feeling he wanted it all for himself no matter how many people he had to step on to get it. According to Heather Salazar article Bernie Madoff: Greatest Ponzi Scheme in U.S. History she said Madoff was not interested in doing the right thing at all and because of this he let a lot of people down and caused a lot of unhappiness because of it (Salazar). If Bernard Madoff were to do the right thing he would not be in jail right now and if he couldn 't make the same amount of money was making illegally he would still be making a decent amount of it and it would have been clean instead of taken unwillingly from
Raymond Chandler’s cynical view, as shown in The Big Sleep, is that people will do whatever it takes to get money, and not many people can be trusted. This draws a parallel to the time period in which this novel was written in, The Great Depression. During this period, people were desperate to do whatever it takes in order to get money. Throughout the novel, people have shown the principle flaw in this view, doing anything to get money, even if it is considered illegal. This can be seen at various points where people attempt activities such as blackmailing the General, murdering Geiger for his business, and other forms of crime.
