JoJo is the evil dictator’s son who has been raised to think torturing people is perfectly okay and morally acceptable in society. JoJo is capable of acting in agreement with his deep self. As the dictator’s son can have second order desires that are reasonable but from our perspective they’re immoral. Hence, Wolf believes that majority of us would not consider JoJo accountable and responsible for his actions. This is where the deep-self view is flawed, and Wolf suggests the sane deep-self view.
If God creates creatures that are significantly free, he cannot determine them to do only what is right meaning he must create creatures that are capable of moral evil. Therefore, God cannot guarantee that there will not be evil in the world because a world containing creatures that are significantly free to perform more moral good than evil actions are more valuable. An omnipotent being (God) can't make contradictions be true. Therefore, if God creates a world where there are beings with free will. God can't guarantee that some creatures won't sometimes choose to act badly.
- Detail the distinction between just and unjust laws. Why is it important Dr. King make this distinction? - One has a legal and moral responsibility to obey “just” laws because they are a “ man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God.” Any “just” law uplifts human personality. One has a moral responsibility to disobey “unjust” laws because they are “ a code that is out of harmony with the moral law.” Any “unjust” law degrades human
That ain’t no good” (97). By shooting Lennie, George tries to spare him the pain of rotting away in a jail cell or the agony of Curley attacking him. Additionally, George doesn’t want Lennie to be scared, he wants Lennie to be happy before he died. George felt that it was better that he was the one to do it. Similarly, when Candy lets Carlson shoot his dog he immediately regrets it, “[he] oughta shot that dog [himself]... [he] shouldn’t outta of let no stranger shoot [his] dog” (61).
I believe that brutus is noble, not just by his actions but also by the way that he carries himself. But first what does it mean to be noble well that word may have a different meaning depending on how you interpret the word . Brutus is a man that does the right thing by not acting on impulse but by being methodical in the way that he carries out tasks and makes decisions. The people of rome I feel hold brutus to a higher standard and expect him to do the right thing just based off of the kind of person that he is. To tell whether or not brutus is noble is all in how you interpret the play and his dialogue, and the way that I perceived it is that brutus is noble.
One reason for this is, “If I could read and write, I would help you become smarter Laddy.” Another reason why Tam Lin is a good guy is when He takes him out to the field and wants to have fun and talk to Matt about some things. The last reason why I think Tam Lin was a good guy is that he cared for Matt when other people like El Patron didn’t want anything to do with him. That’s why I think Tam Lin is a great guy and meant to bring no harm to the world. I think of the book was going to go on, I think Matt would risk himself to free all the eejits because he seems like he really wants them free. I think he would succeed then someone would find something to do with them.
George also killed him because he didn’t want to regret not killing Lennie himself rather than someone else killing him that wouldn’t have cared. Killing Lennie is the best option George had. Because it was only for Lennie good so that he wouldn’t have to suffer. This story of Lennie and George is relevant to today because we all have someone that we really care about that you would do anything for them. Just like George did for Lennie it shows use friendship, caring, and
In conclusion George goes to Lennie and him before anyone else can hurt him. There is debate whether George slaughtered Lennie with justification or not. Personally i believe that Lennie was loony and didn 't know how to control himself. In addition, I know in the book Lennie butchered bijou animals uncontrollably. Also Lennie was a kind person, but when he got pissed he hurt Curley However, people might say that he didn 't know what he was doing when doing such things.
The Constitution is not an elitist document because of the equal benefits provided to man, the need of social classes, and the check of power. The Constitution is not an elitist document because the founding fathers made it for the good of all mankind. “They did not believe in man but they believed in the power of a good political constitution (Hofstadter 55).” This quote shows this document was needed to protect all men, not just the estates of the fathers. Man would destroy themselves if they were to rule each other. White men also benefitted from the rules set down by the founding fathers.
The public would know about Boo, which is exactly what he doesn’t want. That’s why he stays in his house. They were trying to protect Boo, because if they didn’t they would have killed a mockingbird, which is a sin. As you can see, “A Unicorn’s Horn” is a good title for the novel “To Kill a Mockingbird.” It considers the themes and ideas that we are given in the novel and the unicorn-mockingbird connection makes sense.
He uses his words and his honesty to achieve his justice, he takes every advantage of this one true opportunity he has before the council to voice his opinion. One could also argue that Socrates seemed to want the truth, not so much for others but for his own well being. As oppose to King,
