As such, it is a form of assault, as you are causing pain and have no regard for an individuals well being. You completely disregard them as a person, and may cause emotional pain, such as depression or physical pain, as there may be a physical altercation that comes after you say it. This is why it should be a criminal offense, as it deters individuals from acting in a way that is dangerous towards the solidarity of society. Now of course there will be people that will disagree with this logic, on the basis that although hate speech is wrong, it should be protested and challenged, rather than criminalized. To these people I say that although this is a valid point, the ethical disparities that it casts on society are why hate speech should be a criminal offense.
Peoples response to bullying can lead to affecting their security as it can lead to more bullying. A part of cyber security is being aware of how to block people if a person is in a situation where they are being bullied(Magid). Prevention of both topics are the same, scare tactics are not effective and people prefer honest information concerning the
"Moral desert" is just a philosophical notion that a person deserves something based on his or her actions, and it is not cleared up by equality retributivism because equality retributivism calls for us to "behave barbarically to those who are guilty of barbaric crimes" (Nathanson). Another example of this is imagine a rapist. It would be barbaric and morally unacceptable to rape the rapist. Even though it may seem that those who kill should be killed themselves, it really isn't moral and is not universally
If forced to live a “normal” life, he believes he would put everyone (coworkers and family alike) in harm's way. Soldiers and vets try to find other ways of coping with war memories in order to better fit into “normal” life. Often these coping mechanisms are unhealthy or detrimental to the veterans’ recovery process: “Pain makes the nightmares go away. There's not enough pills or booze to make the nightmares go away, but….If I get hurt bad it helps the nightmares go away faster" (Shay 9). Many veterans would resort to violence or illegal substances to try and distract them from the reality of not being able to fit in like they used to.
Should he not be prosecuted as his intentions were not aligned with his actions? G: No, he should be prosecuted. He committed manslaughter and should be sentenced for his actions. S: However, you just mentioned that his actions were not purposeful, and by your definition he should not be punished for his actions. G: I suppose I am wrong.
According to Richards (2013), it is illegitimate and pernicious to establish an underground and comprehensive surveillance in the society. First, individual privacy, which should be granted and well protected by the law, is now violated. Under PRISM, personal details, including thoughts, movements, communication, transaction and health record, is being systemically and consistently collected without a permit from the owners. The right to hold these details is shifted from the individuals to the state. The state then can make use of the information for certain political purposes like filtering criminal/ terrorist-related suspects out of the government or even country.
People are sometimes very afraid to get out of their comfort zones and try new things. Rebels are considered deviant and encourage deviant behavior. A great example of deviant behavior is domestic violence. Majority of society believes that domestic violence is a horrible thing. Others believe that it is a different way of expressing love and other emotional feelings.
Another form of unethical police abuse is spying, also known as information gathering. Spying is a challenging abuse tactic to monitor or fix because it is a secret activity which makes those who participate in it all the more unethical. The victim does not know it 's happening, and it is goes unwitnessed. One way to try and stop spying or extreme information gathering is to limit the information police have access to. All information that is allowed to be collected may only be done so if that person is a reasonable suspect of having committed a crime, and the information must be relevant to that crime.
However, there are limits to what we are allowed to say. We can’t misuse the freedom of speech, saying words that can cause serious harm (bullying). This form of speech will cause depression, suicide, and stunted social development. When freedom of speech hurts others, then it is not just an opinion anymore; it is a form of hate
