Theory of Justice Analysis Stanley Ross AJS 544 05/23/2016 Professor Heath II Theory of Justice Analysis On the surface, justice can be viewed as given someone their punishment for the crimes they commit. The concept being the law allows us to put our trust in them to take care of criminals. Conception and reality are typically miles away from each other.

The actual depiction is that criminals are being penalized yet; they are able to decrease the sentences set for them.
David Brooks writer of “One Nation Slightly Divisible,” tries to control the audience’s minds by using “we” in his article. Similarly, Jonathan Rauch, writer of “In Defense of Prejudice: Why Incendiary Speech Must Be Protected” argues in a biased point of view in an unique way to attract audience to believe his personal view towards prejudice.

“It doesn 't deter crime, but merely cheapens human life and gives rise to more murders.” This is one of the many quotes that reflects Truman Capote’s view on capital punishment. In writing his novel, In Cold Blood, Capote’s primary purpose is to convey his opposition towards the death penalty. Through the stylistic elements of rhetorical appeals, diction, and a selection of detail, Capote reveals the attitude he holds against this unreasonable form of justice. Tying into the events of the trial, Capote uses the rhetorical appeal pathos to highlight his point by appealing to the emotions and sensitivities of his audience.

Atticus is a prime example of this, bringing empathy to a deeper level. For instance, Atticus musters up the moral courage to defend the innocent Tom Robinson in the case against Mayella Ewell, an action that goes against much of Maycomb’s beliefs. However, the fuel to this motivation initially comes from placing himself in Tom’s shoes in order to see the unjust actions towards him, thus taking the initiative to do something about this prejudice. Atticus goes to the jail cell and possibly endangers himself to prevent the endangerment of Tom. Although he knows he may be risking his life by guarding the front of the jail, he shows moral courage for facing his fears and standing up for what he believes is ethical.

“I pardon him as God shall pardon me” (5.3.130), He acknowledges his crime here, and speaks to God pardoning him, for the same crime Aumerle committed. Based on these actions, King Henry’s rule compares to King Richard’s in several ways. Politically, King Henry was more talented, understanding the people and the nature of politics better. However, a comparison of their morals, creates an equation that is equal. Both King Henry and King Richard display the same hypocrisy of banishing someone who was loyal to them, and further, banishing for a crime that the kings asked them to do.
This act of Matt taking law into his own hands explores both the ideas of justice and revenge. “Although Dubus trains his disgust on the failures of the court, the practical shortcomings of using force as a response to injustice paradoxically emerge at the conclusion of an essay that ostensibly argues for the necessity of doing just that”
