In document C, Law 129 talks about how if a married lady is caught cheating on her husband, she and the man she was cheating with, get tied together and thrown into the water. Hammurabi should want his people to feel safe and be with whoever they want to be with. The husband may get mad at the lady, but getting thrown into water and drowning is really harsh. The woman would be scared. In Law 195 it states, “If a son has struck his father, his hands shall be cut off.” This law seems, as well, too harsh.
This next quote shows that society made Roger scared of throwing rocks because of the punishments that come along with doing wrong things. “Roger’s arm was conditioned by a civilization that knew nothing of him and was in ruins” (Golding 91). Roger’s arm just expects punishment and does not think that there will not be consequences. The only thing holding back the evil within the child is the old civilization and since that is gone, the realization that punishment does not exist will follow closely behind. In conclusion, children may seem naive which they are, naturally they would do things much differently if they were exposed to things instead of being sheltered from
The purpose of his “codes” were to keep everyone safe from danger.He laws that involved like “Personal Injury Law, Creation of the codes,Family laws,Property Law. Body Paragraph 1 Examples of Just laws can first be found in the area of family law. Here is one of the family laws in Mesopotamia.The first example is that “If a married lady is caught cheating with another man, they shall bind and cast them into the water.” If a son has struck his father,his hands shall be cut off”. This means the lady and the man she cheated with will get thrown into the water together .This matters because you shouldn’t cheat on someone you are married with. This matters because you will die by drowning.
In law #129 it states, "If a man's wife be surprised with another man, both shall be tied and thrown into the water, but the husband may pardon his wife and the king his slaves." In law #141, the husband has the option to make her a servant if he doesn’t want to release her. I can see that women weren’t just wives but their husband’s property. Hammurabi made it clear, that wives had to be 100% faithful to their husband, which doesn’t sound like a bad thing, but it’s in a way where it showed women should only obey their husband. I believe that Hammurabi didn’t believe in “love” or relationship.
Hammurabi’s Code was unjust to the people of Babylon. For example, starting with the family laws, law number 129 (Document C) said that if a married woman is caught in adultery with another man, they shall both be tied up and thrown in the water to drown. In my opinion, this law is too harsh, they should both go to prison instead.
According to Mustapha Mond, the World Controller for Western Europe, there can be “No civilization without social stability. No social stability without individual stability.” In order for the world they live in to run smoothly, the World Controllers need to ensure that their people think as alike as possible, so the least amount of conflict will arise. John is punished because he poses a great danger to the stability of the World State. John despises everything about the new world. After a long conversation with Mustapha Mond, John even forces himself to throw up in order to purge himself of civilization, explaining that “It poisoned me.” John does not see himself as a part of society like Lenina does; in fact, because he has always been treated and considered as an outsider, John is the very embodiment of individualism and natural instinct.
This is absolutely psychotic and down right scary. No father should ever take action of killing their own kids on purpose. Some citizens wanted to believe that “It must have been an accident”(35), this is because what Jim did is horrifying. He could have avoided killing her and solved his problems in so many ways. Jim could have worked harder and earned more money and then
Amir’s particular body language shows that he wants this deed to be seen by no one. Thus, glancing towards either direction to make sure that ‘the coast is clear’. He deprives Hassan and Ali from the house they have served faithfully for a long time, thereby stealing the truth from Hassan and depriving them of a home they knew well. Amir is driven by both the greed for his father’s attention and the guilt of being helpless when Hassan was raped. The reason why he couldn’t remain under the same roof as Hassan was because he felt guilty that he hadn’t tried to stop the rape and save his friend.
Not only did they have mental damage from the trial, now they also had physical damage. Jem was enraged at the townspeople for finding Tom Robinson guilty when they knew he was innocent. He couldn’t fathom how his father could work for a justice system who did no justice for Tom. Jem now realizes how much racism there is in Maycomb and his faith in the justice system is badly hurt. Scout doesn’t grasp the severity of the trial as much as Jem but they both know, although to different degrees, that life isn’t fair, justice isn’t always served, and people would lie just to save their own
Death shouldn’t be associated with tradition, yet because tradition is archaic, people believe that it's okay to partake in it. Even when Tessie Hutchinson screamed ‘it isn’t fair, it isn’t right”, people still threw stones at her. A tradition within a society can be dangerous because society believes that because something is old that it is right. Therefore the theme is tradition can be dangerous explains how dangerous customs can
