Also daily herald.com said “Our president earns a yearly salary of $400,000, and he runs our country, while the athletes just provide amusement. Don 't get me wrong, but paying an athlete $13.5 million for a single year is just overpriced.”( Patel, page 1) This means that the people are starting to notice why are athletes are getting paid millions for just for themselves like when they work hard for that title for their city it’s mostly good for themselves because they have a healthy body and they can buy anything they like to choose. Furthermore, Gene Callahan stated that “The bartender defended Rodriguez’s salary, asking, “If someone offered you $25 million, would you turn them down“( Callahan, page 1)? Therefore, this explains how any regular pro sports athlete would never turn down an offer unless they are very strict about
According to the story, the human understanding of justice is that it revolves around the actions assumed by the law rather than the actual outcomes. The idea of justice constructed upon the process accepted is based on the simple fact that it ensures that all the pertinent issues are addressed. Additionally, if the process is not followed correctly, it’ll become too complex to explain to the accuser how an action done good to them will now make up for an action done wrong to them before. This idea should be applied in today’s culture because the public is accountable for serving justice and it is obligated to follow the correct process in doing so appropriately. Much of the Assyrian law concept of justice is comparable to the Babylonian law because both had many very harsh punishments.
King answers this question by stating that there are two kinds of laws: just and unjust. The former is mainly characterized by one quality: morality. See, for a law to be just, it cannot be forced upon a specific demographic of the population by another; every demographic must have the opportunity for equal representation in the proposition of said law. Otherwise, there will always be a feeling of being acted-upon for the oppressed rather than collectively acting as a
Political liberalism is thought to have two central values -- autonomy and equality, both essential to reinforcing the value of the individual in society. To add on, tolerance is generally thought to go hand in hand with equality. The idea is that in order for every individual to have equal civil liberties and be treated as political equals, others that strongly disagree with their beliefs or lifestyles must at least be tolerant of them. However, the idea of tolerance in itself seems paradoxical. As philosopher Bernard Williams points out in his essay, Toleration: An Impossible Virtue, the biggest puzzle concerning toleration is that “tolerance...is required only for the intolerable” (18).
The conclusion made in number 9 from above would then fit within the premises 1 through 8. God would no longer be accountable for errors in the faculty of judgements in people, because those people would not have been protected from making errors in judgement. Thus, their lack of protection, perfection, and subsequent errors in judgement, would then have the purpose of making the universe a perfect place, according to
Another is there are CRT scholars who have different claims who are either realists or idealists. Strengths the theory contains is that the education system movement reflects the Critical Legal Studies(CLS) with the analysis that shows race as the center problem of inequality. Another reason to help the theory’s approach is that CLS scholars evaluate mainstream ideologies on the U.S. society as a dominant power, but don’t include racism in their argument. Nevertheless, racism is not to be ignored for it plays a much more important
In the article, “The Indispensable Opposition,” author, Walter Lippmann, argues his claim that we must view the freedom of oppositions as a way to improve our decisions in a democratic society rather than just tolerating that freedom of speech. When freedom of speech is tolerated and only seen as a right to speak, Lippmann believes that the liberty of opinion becomes a luxury. Moving forward, Lippmann then states that we must understand that the freedom of speech for our opponents are a vital necessity since it provides our own opinions to grow in improvement. Through practical experience, we realize we need the freedom of opposition and is no longer just our opponent’s right. In fact, Lippmann claims this system of free speech allows us to
Rather than taking responsibility for the consequences of your actions, we as humans would much rather flee and burden those issues upon the shoulders of others. In acts of political scapegoating for example, in order to portray a perfect political institution in an imperfect society, it becomes necessary to shoulder the blame onto minorities. The preservation of national identity, political stability, and national unity can be seen by the perspective of the government as reasonable justifications for
Rawls’ first principle of justice outlines that social institutions in a just society must aim for maximum equal liberty (Rawls, p. 82). His second principle, the difference principle, justifies inequality, but only when it maximally benefits those who are worse off (Rawls, pp. 65-66). Rawls ‘acknowledges that these principles are an oversimplification of distributive justice, but believes they should be applied to the basic structures of society (Rawls, p. 77). Rawls acknowledges that there needs to be regulations on when civil disobedience is justifiable.
Many people believe that the election plays the most important role in democracy. Because a free and fair election holds the government responsible and forces it to behave on voter's interest. However, some scholars find evidence that election itself is not enough to hold politicians responsible if the institutions are not shaping incentives in a correct way. In other words, the role of the election on democracy, whether it helps to serve the interest of the public or specific groups, depends on other political institutions. I In an ideal democracy, voters will vote for the politicians and policies that can bring the most benefit to themselves, while the rules of the society cares about how to maximize the social welfare as a whole.
It emphasizes on the need of improving the party system to ensure that they are representing the public accurately. Unlike the Federalist Papers, this essay supports the need for political parties, since their role is to represent the public and having a two party system allow the public to have a choice between their political view, morals, and promises. The two party system also prevents the government from becoming hyperpluralistic and giving the public multiple positions to take hindering the progress of the nation. Therefore, I believe that this essay is informative and realistic since it acknowledges the existence of factions and, instead of presenting ways to destroy them, it presents information on how the public can improve the performance of the parties in order to improve the
College kids bring in thousands of dollars every game day. They play their hearts out every single night, and will do whatever it takes to get the win. If someone sacrifices his body for the better good of a team, then they should be treated like professionals would if they had done the same thing. Which is paying them some portion of the money that they just made for you. In his article "Should college athletes be paid to play?
Vonnegut says in his Political and Social Critique that he based his ideas on the egalitarianism and share the same principles of the America’s Declaration of Independence. If we continue reading, we will reach to the following conclusion: people must be forced to be equal to one another in their appearance, behavior, and achievements. However, “Bergeron”, says that the ideals of egalitarianism can be dangerous if they are interpreted too literally, but
At long last, the Second Revision develops the reason for human rights. The reason such a variety of skilled individuals are pulled in to the Unified States is that this nation is known for accentuation on social liberties and individual opportunity. With a method for securing ourselves `and our friends and family, which the Second Revision legitimizes, others would not have the capacity to infringe on our rights. Residents in different nations despise social equality as we do in light of the fact that there is ceaseless clash going ahead in those nations. Maybe this is the manner by which the U.S. contrasts from different nations as far as rights for the general population.
There are situations which I would deem it necessary, and situations in which I believe it to be excessive and unnecessary to the bettering of todays society. The goal of laws and the judicial system is to keep peace, promote general welfare, and to impose penalties on those who commit crimes, and protect the innocent. The judicial system is designed to make fair and equitable decisions on behalf of society in order to achieve those
