I did not understand the solution to the problem of being a “conscientious meat eater.” The authors never really stated or concluded an answer to the problem in the article. In the text it says “For many people who care about the environment and animal welfare, choosing to eat humanely raised meat seems like an option.” This argues that only an option to the solution is informed to the reader, and that there is no real solution to the problem at hand. The whole point of the article, “Is It Possible to be a Conscientious Meat Eater”, is to inform the reader about the issue about meat, but because there is no solution to his argument; it makes his argument less effect as a whole when persuading
For many reasons Andrew Carnegie was not a hero but a robber baron. In his personal life, business approach, and philanthropy he was not heroic. He would either just hide the bad things that he would do or just not do anything heroic. He basically a standard robber baron for the time. The only reason that some people think he was a hero was because he would trick the public or every once in awhile do something good.
In a scenario like Nightcrawler people become inhumane, not caring at all how actions affect other people. They become interested in only what is valuable or profitable to them. In a scenario like “Harrison Bergeron” people are made inhumane by the excessive amount of regulation. A radical solution will initiate more problems than it solves. The only solutions with any chances to solve moral problems fall somewhere in between these
B. The American Dream is a mirage, and thus unattainable as it limits success of an individual by their class and ethnic origin. C. Not only is the American Dream exclusive and unfulfilling, but it also causes corruption as those who strive for the American Dream corrupt themselves in doing so and the old rich hide behind their wealth in order to conceal their immoralities. II. As characters such as Daisy, Tom, and Gatsby are not content even after they have seemingly achieved the American Dream as
Hsiao then establishes his argument that even though eating meat may not be necessary, our “nutritional interests” are a valid enough reason to kill animals. The following section argues that sentience is only a relevant consideration in association with sufficient moral standing and that because animals are not part of the human “moral community,” they have no moral standing and therefore, their pain is a “non-moral” welfare interest, trumped by the “moral” welfare interests of humans (Hsiao).
Many villains I know don’t have a ‘welfare state' of mind or an option of looking to live off of government benefits. For them it’s a matter of their integrity - they'd rather go hungry or commit armed robbery to get ahead, than ask for a hand out from the
Do you seriously don’t know what the heck has gotten into polices head. My issue what cops are selfishness, laziness, weak, and just not doing their job. Cops can be selfish often when they think you committed a crime just because you 're black, or they just assume, and have no proof. They have no evidence, no proof, no clues. And sometimes when there’s a case not even that big, they think they can just take their own little time.
Jay was so far from the Green light but would stare at it wishing he was rich. “There are only the pursued, the pursuing, the busy and the tired.” (Fitzgerald). Scott reminds us that if you are not rich then you will not fit in because the upper class only care for
We can see this in the essay “Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate The Smart Kids” by Grant Penrod explains why anti-intellectualism exists in our society and why intellectuals are despised instead of praised for their hard work. He writes “Certainly the image presented by modern celebrities suggests that intellectualism has no ties to success and social legitimacy”(760). What Penrod is saying is that the media glorifies non-intellectuals which in result makes intellectuals lose their ambition to continue with their accomplishments. Intellectuals conform to the idea that there are people who are looked up to who don 't have intellectualism so why should they? What is revealed is that Conformity hurts those individuals that may think differently, and makes them lose particular characteristics that make them different.
The Proles made up the majority of the population, yet they were blissfully unaware of what was occurring in the government. The minds of the paroles is filled with mindless entertainment and simple problems, to the point where “even when they became discontented, as they sometimes did, their discontent led nowhere, because being without general ideas, they could only focus in on petty specific grievances. The larger evils invariably escaped their notice” (Orwell, other pages). The paroles, under constant oppression, are not aware of their ignorance as the government continues to hide information from them. The government feeds the paroles lies, and they accept these lies without question.
