He says, “But Polyneices, killed as piteously, an interdict forbids that anyone should bury him or even mourn.” (192). Through disobeying the Gods, Creon implies that his laws are more important than the Gods. Creon’s disregard towards the Gods, explains why he dismisses Tiresias’s power. Creon’s overall power grants him his free will.
He also is not guilty because he cannot tell the difference between fantasy and reality, and he cannot control his own morals. So, why not give this man a second chance? Everyone deserves
In the quote, Prometheus has just been banished from his civilization because he thought for himself. Expressed perfectly in the quote is how men having egos allows for trust and bonds to occur. The issue is that people who have an ego and are vocal about it are considered selfish. This is not true. In Ayn Rand’s “The Soul of an Individualist”, the protagonist, Howard Roark, is talking about being an individual.
This shows that by Jack leaving, it helped anyone who believed in the rules laid out to do their part and to get things done. Jack did not help with the rules in the slightest, going against anything that was said. This brings me to my next point; Jack believed in destruction and did not care if he hurt people. Before Piggy dies, there is an argument between Jack and Ralph saying, " Which is better, Law and rescue, or hunting and breaking things up?" (Golding, 180)
As the leader of us, it was a great move to show authority by giving a punishment. This not only showed who was in charge but also told to never cross you, for it is wrong. Nevertheless, for a crime to have good intentions, I believe if you had just given him a small, but powerful judgment, Prometheus would’ve understood that he shouldn’t continue to abruptly make decisions. In conclusion, I hope you have realized the decisions we all made weren’t the wisest and we could’ve done a lot more for mankind.
If Oedipus believed himself to be innocent to the murder of King Laius, he would not have cared what others thought about him or ever felt saddened that he acted inappropriately or even confessed to his wrongdoings. He was ignorant as he always believed himself to be better than others and have more knowledge as well. He desired to feel superior over others, making it difficult for him to understand the correct acquisitions made to him, regarding being the murder to King Laius by Tiresias (Sophocles 37). When the revelation and the statements made by others became reality, Oedipus was consumed with shame. Oedipus’s guilt is additionally an emotion felt after realizing the trick fate had played on him.
It was not Tim’s sense of nationalist loyalties that caved him; rather, it was helplessness and his reputation that was at risk. Tim O’Brien longed to be that “secret hero” or “Lone Ranger” in order to impress those around him. However, he ends up learning that courage does not come in finite quantities. He finds himself resenting authority, “If you support a war, if you think it’s worth the price, that’s fine, but you have to put your own precious fluids on the line”. No matter how much he may find the law cruel and inhuman, he has is too prideful and decides to comply with the rules.
I think that it is a little ironic that Socrates, the man who was all about intellect, had an intellectual error. Socrates was a man who focused on the truth, and unfortunately he failed to realize that the truth might not be what everyone else was focused on. In relation to what I stated earlier here is some in text evidence; Socrates said “to disregard the manner of my speech- it doesn't matter how it compares- and to consider and concentrate your attention upon this one question, whether my claims are
Fahrenheit 451, a book created by the mind of Ray Bradbury, was made to show the challenges of the Utopian lifestyle, but it is also a fantastic example of the Hero’s Journey. "We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made equal. Each man the image of every other; then all are happy, for there are no mountains to make them cower, to judge themselves against.” -Bradbury
Later on in the interview Paxton says: ‘I would never try and harm anybody’. That is a huge red flag. By him saying that, I believe he most definitely did commit the offences which are in question. He might not have tried to, or even had the intention to harm him but he did. It’s the same as me saying I didn’t mean to harm a baby by dropping it on its head, but it happened regardless and I would have to face the consequences.
He even believed this did not cause a violation to the Hippocratic Oath. For him, the principle of non-maleficence applied because he could no longer hurt the patient, Mr. Swensen since he was already dead. By doing the fraud, he only corrected an injustice that was done to him since he was being framed. But, can this be considered enough? By following Kantian ethics
Mr. Miller had had more trouble with this one, perhaps because he is too conscious of its implications. The literary style is cruder. The early motivation is muffled in the uproar of the opening scene, and the theme does not develop with the simple eloquence of "Death of a Salesman."---------By BROOKS
