After saying these things he admits to having an affair with Abagail Williams. He was wishing this would show that Abagail was just jealous and wanted to get rid of his wife to have him for herself. Now John Proctor was going to be put to death for being an adulterer and his wife fore practicing witch craft. John proctor had to confess to being an adulterer on paper and it was to be hung on the church doors in the middle of Salem. He didn’t like the way they were going to give him a bad name if he confessed.
A desperate man pleading, and begging people not to kill his wife because she has been falsely accused of being a witch. He needed some solid evidence to get her back. He gave up his dignity when he said the he had committed adultery on his wife. In the culture of the time this was a big crime, and was seen as one of the most heinous of crimes. John has now given what last shred of honor he had to get his wife back.
He ruled from 1792 B.C. to 1750 B.C. The Hammurabi Code had a total of 282 laws. There were many harsh punishments whenever you committed a crime during his reign, such as getting your hands, limbs, eye, and breast removed. Hammurabi was born in Babylon which is now modern day Iraq, his father was a king with a lot of power before him.
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. The son should get a punishment but getting your hands cut off for hitting his father would lead to son being scared. In conclusion, Hammurabi 's code is unjust. The evidence shows that the Personal Injury Laws didn’t protect all people equally, the Property Laws punishments were too harsh, and the Family Laws can cause someone 's death. Most of Hammurabi’s laws are not just to the people or society of Babylon.
He also underlines that people have personal motives to accuse other because of their biases. Another example of this is in act III, when Proctor confesses to his act of adultery in order to save his wife from death, “God help me, I lusted and there is a promise in such sweat...My wife is innocent” (102). Proctor is attempting to accuse Abigail of faking all the accusations and affiliations with the devil because he knows that Abigail longs to remove Elizabeth from his life. His admission of adultery conveys his feelings of guilt and extreme love towards his wife Elizabeth. Proctor exudes ethics even when it damages his own
Pharaoh Snefru ruled for 24 years from 2613 to 2589. He was the first pharaoh of Egypt 's 4th dynasty. Although Snefru was most known for his ruling, he built 3 pyramids which are “The Bent Pyramid, The Red Pyramid and The Meidum Pyramid.” Snefru put dedication and lots of effort with meaning, to the monuments that are still well known to this day.Snefru had needed a wife so he got married to his half sister named Hetepheres.Snefru had many children such as the famous scholar pharaoh Khufu, the prince Nefermaat, and princess Hetepheres ll. One of Snefru’s major accomplishments was building the Real first pyramid which took the shape of a triangle.Another one of his major accomplishments are that he conquered the Sinai peninsula which gave them tons of cedar wood which helped them make big strong traveling boats. Snefru was an amazing tactician against the successful attack on Libya he captured over 11,100 Libyans.
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.
Law 129 (Doc C) states that if a married lady is caught in adultery with another man, they will be blinded then casted into the water, whereas law 148 (Doc C) states that if a man has married his wife and a disease has seized her, and he is determined to marry his second wife he will marry the second wife but not divorce the wife who is diseased. This is unjust because the man can leave his wife and get remarried, but a married woman will get blinded and then thrown into water if caught in adultery. The law would have been more just if both men and women had the same consequence when caught in
That is not the case because Hammurabi’s code was more negative towards everyone than positive. Hammurabi’s code interfered with others lives, prevented protection of the weak and created fear among the people. To begin with, Hammurabi’s code of law was unjust because it interfered with others lives. A mesopotamian man was allowed to disown his son whenever he pleased. Also, If the son hits his father, his hands will be cut off (Document C).
If you go outside, you must be accompanied by a mahram, a male relative. If you are caught alone on the street, you will be beaten and sent home …”(p.297). The laws are made by the Talibans who are men that believe women have no place in the society and should only stay at home. Another evidence, according to Hosseini (2007), “ When they were caught and sent back, the mullah’s son was flogged before he repented and said that Naghma had seduced him with her feminine charms. She’d cast a spell on him, he said.
