Secondly people need to not look at these as more of a warning. It 's not a felony charge, you are not going to go to jail or prison for it. Frank Trippett believes that we need to get rid of the minor charges because it puts you in a category with other people that are like repeat offenders. But if we did not have the consequences we do what is stopping these people from doing these things and before you know it, our country is going to be a wreck. Law and rules are put into effect for the betterment of mankind that is why we need to have people obeying them and learning from them at all
One cannot deny that going against the majority of the people is something that is unwanted and usually will not benefit the whole nation. Although this is true, I affirm that it is appropriate to go against the government with the intentions of not harming anyone. Majority does not always mean that it is morally right. In the article “Civil Disobedience” by Henry David Thoreau, he asks, “Can there not be a government in which majorities do not virtually decide right and wrong, but conscience?...Why has every man a conscience, then?” (Thoreau). The decisions of the major part of society can sometimes exacerbate the morals of the nation as a whole.
3. Therefore, the most ideal course of action to escape destruction would be to stay peaceful and cooperate with the people around you. Hobbes’ argument for leaving the state of nature is flawed because people are nonviolent due to their own self-interest, not for the prosperity of others- which can easily lead to corruption and disunity. This flaw is damaging to Hobbes’ argument because not everybody is willing to give up their free will or follow the obligations of the social contract to protect the
Martin Luther King writes, “ To accept injustice or segregation passively is to say to the oppressor that his actions are morally right.” When it happens it allows the perpetrator to believe what they had done can happen again. Stop snitching is a short term for not wanting to be told on. King would view the stop snitching campaign as a way to hide problems that could be fixed with help. It is believed by people in many African American that call the police is a way of hurt the people of the community, and that the person being told on shouldn’t get punished. It would be hard for people in the community to try and stop the movement of stop snitching, because of the relationship the people have with the police.
In the real world, society does something similar to this, just with opinions and not books. Society is so concerned about being politically correct , it silences people who have opposing opinions. Society can govern and police themselves most of the time. The pressure it can put on people to make them conform to it’s expectation is too much. Being too different is highly discouraged and the same is true
Though, criminals should have second chance in their life to change their bad habits, and be a good influence. But, you can’t always trust them, you can’t have this hope that they will always have a good influence and never break the law again. As you know, ex-cons had made a mistake, those who trusted them before might have thought that the person would make good choices, but it turned out that the person made bad choices and broke the law. So, that’s why ex-cons should not have the rights to vote again. Ex-cons should not have the rights to vote again.
There are two ways of interpreting his job; it can be perceived as evil, being in control of distorting and manipulating history. In contradiction to this point, he is simply doing what is required of him, his environment being what is compelling him to carry out this action. Another example of the moral ambiguity he lives in was whether or not he should of kept the article or was right to have disposed of it. Winston initially was tempted to keep the document, having it be the morally correct thing to do so, yet would be imposing punishment upon himself. Therefore, for this reason he decided that the states definition of morality was more important than his
I feel that protesting is a weak form of resisting the government, it might catch some attention, but not enough to take the argument anywhere. I also disagree with an individual having the right to resist government, because every American citizen has to abide by some set rules or laws, so it wouldn’t be fair to have one or multiple people not abiding by those requirements. I feel that society would be more chaotic if everyone had the right choose what they wanted to follow. In a perfect world, Henry Thoreau’s methods of civil disobedience would have been a great idea, depending on what laws one was refusing to obey, but in his time period and in ours it just wouldn’t work having everyone doing what pleased them. That’s why the government, as stubborn as it can be and as much as we may disagree with it at times, has to instill laws so that the world can be a calm and orderly
Some might claim that the evidence that Wehbey is showing about how police officers are looking for a solution to excessive use of force is not true because people still perceive actions that are against these claims. On the contrary, it is suggesting that police stations as the community are aware of the impact of this issue, and they are looking for a solution as well. Probably the excess of force will never be eradicated, but evidence is showing that it could be reduce. Wehbey’s points is important because exposed that not all police officers are alike to use force in
Stop the Bullying People is not always willing to stand up for what they believe is right. One of the reasons why people is not willing to stand up is because they fear getting involved in legal problems. Others do not want to lose time discussing over this situations. Many of them do not know that there are consequences for what they chose to ignore. What I think about this is different.
Which often leads to chaos. "If I were going to set out to oppress other people, I would surely prefer to select for my victims persons whose first response is forgiveness rather than persons whose first response is revenge. "We don’t have justice to take away from freedom, but to bring peace. Everymember of a society should strive to advance in a stronger and more peaceful environmaent. We can 't acomplish that out justice.
