The officials have been making irrational decisions because of all the hysteria in the town. When Hale gets fed up with the court officials he challenges its legitimacy. “I denounce these proceedings!” (120) He makes a powerful statement which shows that he does not agree or approve of what is going on within the court because of his strong ethics and morals.
Arthur Miller makes it clear that having a good name is more important that the truth, Proctor, Parris, and Danforth all decided their name and reputation was more important than the lives of innocent people. Their decisions went deeper and deeper and made things get worse. Having a good name effected how Proctor acted because he doesn 't want to tell the truth about things he knows just to keep his name. Reputation effects Parris because, he doesn 't want to go against the bible and be accused of working with the devil. Lasly a good name affects Judge Danforth 's decisions because he sees that later he has killed innocent people, but does not want to come forward because he 's killed to many innocents and people will look at him different.
Not only is his father dead and his mother remarried and equally being displaced as heir-presumptive”(Hathaway 90 ) He has constantly been haunted by his conscience regarding the revenge issue. There is no form of murder or revenge that is acceptable among the Christian fold. It is believed that revenge and vengeance is for God. Apart from his believe, Hamlet is a Philosopher Prince who thinks more than he acts and whose subtle intellect inhibits action, unless
(general 239) Those in authority are corrupt and Mr.Chiu attempts to use logic and reason with them. He is still a law abiding citizen but his frustration causes him to grow impatient with those in charge. “ Now you can admit you are guilty,” the chief said[...] “We won’t punish you severely provided you write a self-criticism[...] Mr. Chiu cried.
It is obvious to any person who has read the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, that the legitimacy of Tom Robinson’s trial is questionable. Tom is tried against a bias jury, with no intentions for considering his innocence. And he was given a death sentence that was unrelenting. The trial demanded a jury without bias or hate towards Tom, but for men like Tom Robinson their innocence was irrelevant to their future. Life is full of prejudice and discriminations, but it shouldn’t happen in the determination of someone 's
Even before Bryan Stevenson started representing people on death row, he was opposed to capital punishment. To him, the act of killing someone who is found guilty of murder only to demonstrate that killing is wrong, does not make logical sense. He believes that the death penalty is a punishment rooted in hopelessness and anger. It’s because of his moral and religious background that he believes no one is just a crime, we are more than the worst thing we’ve ever done. According to Stevenson, capital punishment in America is a lottery.
While speaking about his elusive affair Proctor states,“We never touched” when speaking Abigail about the affair. Untruthful, in a bigger sense, can also be applied to John Proctor as he commits the sin of adultery. This makes him unfaithful as well as untruthful as he is supposed to follow the Ten Commandments. In his religious life it is expected that the commandments be followed, yet Proctor is also untruthful to that when he breaks the seventh one. Being untruthful is simpler in most instances so John Proctor continues this pattern up until act three.
Telling people they deserve to die is justifiable because the bible says, “If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death.” Physically harming and verbally harming other American’s is okay because of personal views. Slamming God is okay because there is no evidence he is real. Both heterosexuals and homosexuals justify horrific actions because of their believes and assumptions. Bringing down others because of a personal bubble, instead of keeping thoughts intact and considering where the other is coming from.
Realizing that he had no beneficiary and that he was going to die , Beowulf battled the monster with total surrender. This sentenced the Geats to a falling flat society upon his passing. While these demonstrations unmistakably exhibit Pagan conduct, Christian friars interpreting this ballad urgently needed to fuse the temperances of Christianity and depict Beowulf driving a righteous life. In doing as such, they incredibly changed the importance of the epic
For they no longer benefit the community. We are destroying ourselves. We no longer are finding the evil that walks among us, but more of placing blame on someone for our problems. We do not need to deal with the unseen for we cannot prove what they see and say to be true. The minister himself should be able to spot the devils work, yet he cannot, because he is too holy.
‘I can only do as much as I can do.’ And what he can do is believe in his course of unconditional love,” reiterates that Boyle still has faith in unconditional love. The only way gang members can believe in unconditional love and religion is by having faith in Father Boyle. Everything Boyle had worked on would be all a waste if he gives the information to the police because the gang members would loose his trust. Love is the only thing that can take away the cloud of hate of the gang members and telling the police would only bring the hate back even worse.
His admiration of the court goes down as he sees more people being hanged and the stubbornness of the court. In the end, Hale knows that the law is not the entire aspect of creating a perfect society, no one in a society needs to follow the law entirely, and that authority does not always judge over everything. He has no more confidence in the idea of dominance of God over anything in life, and by that mean he loses his faith to the court. Not just those, he doesn’t carry the heavy written laws since the beginning. When Hale loses his faith towards the court and the society, he earns empathy and respect from us the readers and proving how moral obligation plays a bigger role than civic duty when it comes to real difficulties in a
Morality is the cornerstone of any society and can have a major role on how well that society develops and is run. Laws are based on these basic principles of right and wrong and they are what dictate the punishment for breaking these principles of right and wrong. The problem with this system is that it does not always work, especially when an individual has a flaw in their character. This predicament can be seen in Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Candide by Voltaire, and The Stranger by Albert Camus.
