These little things bear less of a consequence than the judgement of life. No one should be careless enough to pass down the death sentence without hearing both sides of a case. Hammurabi had countless laws that ended in death, although this was a more common form of punishment it was still cruel and unjust. Laws 1, 3, 22, and 110 are other examples of crimes ending in death. A punishment of death should almost never be given unless you have taken someone 's life.
Out of all the warnings he has received, the ones he truly felt were true were Calpurnia’s dream and the discovery of the beast without a heart. Another reason why caesar didn’t take the warnings seriously, although everyone loyal to him did is his arrogance. Caesar was very arrogant and this is shown through the way he speaks, which is always in the third person. Caesar’s ignorance and Caesar’s arrogance were the leading causes of his demise. Had he come to his senses earlier, and not let his arrogance get in the way of his safety, Caesar may have lived longer than he
Kant contended that “ethical obligations are based on external moral principles that are absolute, invariable and do not allow for exceptions or extenuating circumstances.” Many would find this idea very unacceptable because nothing shall be absolute, there should always be exceptions, if they can be justified. Regarding the use of humans as mere means to an end, there is one comparatively acceptable exception. Throughout history, there have been endless wars between and within nations; soldiers were often forced to join the army as it was compulsory for all healthy male to join the crusade in most countries. Many sacrificed their lives in these numerous wars, but they were often regarded as heroes. They sacrificed their lives to bring about nation uprising.
George had to cover up his tracks for, he had had the gun all along and planned on taking Lennie’s life. While the intentions were beneficial in most circumstances, George ultimately conveyed his authority yet again by proving how he physically overpowered Lennie to then put him out of constant anguish. Companionship is commonplace in our society but was feared for many years during the depression. Many were often hesitant to reach out when in a state of agony, sadness, or isolation, and were not aware that these feelings were mutual among other vpeople. Without George and Lennie’s bond, the characters would not have seen what it was like to have someone to rely on, however, their friendship could not fully thrive in a society where everybody constantly was striving to outdo each other.
Once your innocence has been broken, you lose your sense of morality and judgement. For Macbeth, as a war general of Scotland's king Duncan, it is hard to believe that he’s innocent. He may have been a savage warrior on the battlefield, but he definitely wasn’t wasn’t cold enough to murder his own king that rusted him. May I add that this was because Macbeth wanted to be king. After breaking his “innocence,” Macbeth didn’t have much trouble with killing Banquo and Macduff’s entire family.
In the eyes of Danforth people are not innocent until proven guilty; they are innocent until accused guilty. In the eyes of Danforth facts and details mean nothing to him. He comes to conclusions that any rational man cannot come to. He has doomed people to death who were innocent just because they did not want to confess to something that they did not do. This is because Danforth’s rule throughout these trials were that if someone was accused of witchcraft, even if they were innocent they had to confess or they were sentenced to death.
It was a greater challenge for the older men to follow through with the killings than for the younger policemen. They had more life experience and families, which made it extremely difficult for them to execute the women and children. Because of this, Browning mentions that “Kammer relieved not only these two men but a number of other older men as well.” (Browning, p.62). The sympathy of Kammer and Trapp demonstrated some of their humane treatment of their own officers, during the horrific genocide that was ordered. These men were not punished or harmed for their inability to execute the killings.
Jury’s Verdict Society must fight against those who rip society apart by breaking laws and acting unethically. Citizens must make the right decisions in order to maintain a healthy community for many years to come. As jury for the trial of Jack Merridew, we have concluded Jack Merridew to be guilty, for he is responsible for the deaths of Simon and Piggy. When deciding an accused person’s fate, there should be no bias involved, since members of the jury have to look at the case from multiple points of view. The factors that suggested Jack Merridew’s guilt include why he and his tribe had not used traps rather than spears, his attempt to murder Ralph, and how the leader should be the one responsible for a group's actions.
At the fault of his father, he reacted rashly. “When Walt’s double life came to light, the revelations inflicted deep wounds. All parties suffered terrible.” This would be a negative turning point in anyone's life, but Chris was wrong to just pack up and take himself to his death. Though Chris indeed had his flaws, more evidence points to him being sane. He was moral, made decent decisions for the most part and was intelligent and likable.
It is true that Lennie does fracture her neck, but he does so without knowing. For this reason, along with many others, Lennie is not to blame in any case involving his acts of violence in this novel, because of various, indisputable reasons. These include the red dress incident in Weed, crushing Curley’s hand, and the aforementioned murder of Curley’s wife, all of which prove Lennie’s innocence. Lennie’s incident in Weed almost cost George and Lennie their lives. The men who heard the girl screaming were going to lynch Lennie.
