Hamlet’s mother and uncle, Gertrude and Claudius, says to him right before he makes this quote that he still shouldn’t be grieving over his father's death, he should be a man. Some people may argue that Hamlet is experiencing extreme sorrow for the loss of his father. It is perfectly understandable to lash out and express himself. His uncle, Claudius, and his mother, Gertrude, found Hamlet's emotions absolutely embarrassing. Hamlet responded by saying that it is normal for one to be upset that their father just died,
Also, in Law 168, it states that if a son hits his father, his hands shall be cut off. Based on what I read, according to these two laws, Hammurabi’s Code was too strict. As you can see, Hammurabi had harsh rules, instead of trying to fix things, he gave consequences. Additionally, it made people lose some kind of property.

I did not hate the young man; I did not see him as the enemy…” (p. 126). Though he does not see him as the enemy, O’Brien reacts as he had been taught to in war; to forget most of your morals and shoot before you can be shot first, a fact Kiowa points out to him. “Later, I remember, Kiowa tried to tell me that the man would 've died anyway. He told me that it was a good kill, that I was a soldier and this was a war, that I should shape up and stop staring and ask myself what the dead man would ' ve done if things were reversed” (p. 127).
