In the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, By Harper Lee, she tells a tragic story about a noble lawyer who takes the case of an innocent black man. In this story the individuals had to face difficult decisions, where they had to make the right or wrong choices and if they wanted to please themselves or the society. Atticus had to choose between the white community to please society or the black community to please himself; he made the right choice. Atticus made the decision to help Tom Robison, whom he was accused of raping and beating Mayella by taking Tom 's case to court and prove the he was innocent to everything he was accused for. This was shown when Atticus said, "The main one is, if I didn 't I couldn 't hold my head in town, I couldn
In the commencement of the story Mr.Chiu is a devoted law abiding citizen. He recognizes that the duty of law enforcement is to not only enforce the law for others but it is also to abide by the laws they are there to enforce. Furthermore, He also believes that the police force are harming the citizens by not obeying the law. “He[Mr. Chiu] has trusted that those with authority will operate morally and will honor, even revere, the truth, values he upholds as well.”
Equality believes wholeheartedly in individualism and the concept of preference which relates strongly to judging others’ true intents and motives. Rand’s short essay explains that, while it is not something many would like to believe of their loved ones, many times people are not simply mistaken or misinformed, but rather know the evil in their actions and proceed to carry them out regardless (Rand, Paragraph 14). While it is true that some members of the Council have been brainwashed and truly believe what they say, the original intent of the many strict laws in place were malicious. Looking in at the society from the outside provides an objective point of view that makes clear that the statutes in action are there to control the citizens and not to help or protect
Although the code sculpted the culture in 1797 BC, the code would have no chance of surviving in any modern country to this day due to the harsh punishments received from breaking the laws. According to Hammurabi, he stated “...the strong might not inquire the weak, in order to protect the widows and orphans, I set up these my precious words...etc” (Doc B). Although I do not agree with Hammurabi’s code, I do believe that he was trying to create and maintain a healthy and safe environment for his people by trying to prevent crime with such a harsh set of laws. However, the consequences for not abiding these laws were too harsh.
One of the biggest obstacles is the cannibals in this new post apocalyptic world, to the boy and the man they are described and called the “bad guys”. The code of ethics that the man and the boy follow isn't the as the “old world rules” where laws exist, government, and they have to abide by doing right toward others. The code of ethics they follow have to be chosen, and it is a path many don't chose in this “new world”. The man and boy are living just the two of them, not looking to hurt anyone else unless their lives are being threaten and even then the boy doesn't like to hurt others. The man does at time do some things that the boy doesn't like, and can look like he is turning out to become a bad guy, yet it is necessary steps to ensure their safety.
There were characteristics like his appearance, intelligence, and thoughts. He considered it a curse that he was different from others, because it was against the law to think individual thoughts, or be superior to others (Anthem, pg.1). Though he could tell he was a lot different from others, because they tend not to take risks, or fear discoveries of the world. For example, when Equality 7-2521 and International 4-8818 discovers the tunnel, International says “The will of the Council is above all things, for it is the will of our brothers, which is holy. But if you wish it so, we shall obey you.
The citizens of the the United States preach moral equality and the wrongdoings of their government, yet they fail to realize the horrors that occur when trapped in a cell the size of your bathroom. The article makes great points against the criminal- justice system and their cruel punishment towards prisoners, but the author has failed to persuade me because although their current state in the system might be wrong, it doesn 't take from the fact that they are convicted felons who need to do their time, even if
However, for the others, this makes life on the farm substantially harder. Curley, a cruel character who causes trouble for everyone on the farm, makes life miserable for his fellow workers by frustrating himself and others, and by being overwhelmingly selfish. This crude man is specifically frustrated because he is not shown the respect he thinks he deserves. In reality, he does not deserve any respect, and this is the reason he is not seen as an esteemed
The Judge is a major supporter of the justice system and in right and wrong and he believes that “‘You mean well, but I believe that you’re potentially dangerous I have a duty to society - I hope you keep out of trouble - But I’m absolutely opposed to putting you in any position that will glorify you and cheapen my conception of law and order’” (108). The Judge has it out it for Kip the whole time when he voted against letting him out on probation and does not want him on the parole board because he fears he will go back to his old ways. “‘Caley’ the Judge said quietly.
She wants a better life for herself. She found herself a mother for her siblings, she didn’t go to school, and when she liked a black man and seduced him. He is the one that she can control and everything else she is just powerless. She was devastated when he refuses her; she wanted to remove him from her way, instead of telling the truth she accused him of raping her fact that making advance towards Tom Robinson (the black man) gives Mayella power. Her feeling of guilt motivated her, the society want accept that a white women seduced a black man a trying to take advantage of him, she is a victim
He strongly feels that it is unjust to put a man in jail just to deny him his freedom of peaceful protest. The whites know and as well as himself knows that he is being wrongly accuse and he doesn 't deserve this unjustness. As well as appealing to ethos his character in this paragraph establishes that he is one of knowledge, he analyzes and argues in a manner that is striking. An example is when king puts into play that he agrees with laws but then says he will not stand for a law that is wrongly used to deny him his
However, there is nothing wrong with fighting against something that feels unjust, but fighting sometimes may lead to destruction within the public. The law shouldn’t be based off of just the people’s opinions but also what the government think is best. It’s acceptable to do what is right but many are afraid to stand up to the the government due to the fact that they have more power.
Philippians 2:12-14 speaks about this spiritual co-operation between us and God, “Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Do everything without complaining or arguing.” I love this scripture as it gives each of us some clear principles for living in Christ. You work out your own salvation. As salvation is a work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and by obedience we work it out or live it out!
Although he understands the laws of society, he struggles to understand the reason behind the laws. This is obviously portrayed through Huck’s continuous friendship with Jim, a runaway slave. He know that society would expect him to turn Jim into the authorities, but his own moral code stands in the way of what society views as “right”. While speaking to Jim, he talks to him as if he were his equal when Jim confides in Huck. After Huck promises that he will not tell anyone about his whereabouts, Huck says, “Honest injun, I will.
