The decision in Adkins should have served as binding precedent and the Court should have held the law to be unconstitutional as well. I agree with Justice Sutherland that the meaning of the Constitution does not change with the ebb and flow of economic events and this law should not have been interpreted any differently than the one in Adkins because “economic conditions have
1.1.2. NATURALISTIC THEORIES Robert Nozick’s view of the inviolable freedom of individuals and of the absolute control of property in the self and its possessions and the natural rights which constitute the foundation of a libertarian and well-ordered society revived the natural rights theory Nozick’s writings anarchy, state and utopia in particular has opening sentence “individuals have rights which expresses their separate existence, according to the Kantian principal that individuals are
Libertarians saw the recognition of individual liberty and freedom from government forces as the utmost important elements of society. Traditionalists opposed this view and argued that the “cultivation of virtue in the individual soul” was the highest social good. This tension became known as the freedom-vs-virtue debate and persisted in causing conflict between traditional and libertarian arguments about social morality and family values. Consistent with their belief in the ultimate freedom of individual choice, libertarians believed that restraint of government intervention in personal affairs represented the “removal of an outside influence on how people naturally order their private lives.” Traditionalists opposed a completely undisciplined
Aristotle’s Politics shows Aristotle’s perspective towards anarchy. Though, the Aristotle does not explicitly suggest that anarchy is conflictual, his ideology implies that he is against anarchy. Aristotle notoriously defended slavery when he said, “there must be a union of natural rule and a subject, that both may be preserved. For he who can foresee with his mind is by nature intended to be the lord and the master, and he who can work with his body is a subject” (Aristotle 26). In the above statement, Aristotle is arguing that a society can only be operational Surname 2 when there is a ruler and subjects that work towards attainment of their ‘similar’ goals.
John Locke wrote The Second Treatise of Government and within it he expresses his views of how he believed that private property can be originally appropriated and that it can cause inequalities in terms of wealth. The Discourse of Inequalities, written by Jean Jacque Rousseau, can be used to criticize this because of its own particular way of viewing what is natural and unnatural inequality as well as his beliefs of the modernization of civilizations. In this treaties, Locke explains that the law of nature is basically a state of equality in which the people have no power over one another and they are free to do as they so please. Here, he is careful to state that this is not giving the people the license to abuse others or to be destructive.
“Realm of Ends” formulation of the categorical imperative, states that we must “act in accordance with the maxims of a member giving universal laws for merely possible kingdom of ends.” (4:439) It acts as a social contract. Kant further explains it that “a rational being belongs as a member of the kingdom of ends when he gives universal laws in it but is also himself subject to those laws.” (4:434) Being subject to a law does not contradict with the concept of a rational being as an end in itself, because it is not like a slavery since it is not subject to arbitrary will. Just the opposite, since it draws central points from the first and second formulation, “the will of a member could regard itself as at the same time giving universal law through its maxim” (4:434) and no member will see another member as a mere mean. On the other hand, autonomy is not equal to self-mastery. For Kant, it is essentially social.
Liberty is also used and viewed as the same category of theory, and has the definition “The state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s behavior or political views” (Liberty). If you compare the two you can see that even though they aren’t the same, in the context of theory, it gets the same meaning, as being free from oppression imposed by authority, is liberty, having liberty is being free from oppression, and therefor, throughout the paper, the world will be used as having the same meaning as different theorist use different words. John Stuart Mill is a “British philosopher, economist, moral and political theorist, and administrator, was the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century” (Wilson). He’s known Another person is Philip Petit, who argues for republican freedom, which is different from libertarian freedom that Mill argues for. While Mill focuses freedom on individually and state, Petit argues that pure freedom is not being controlled by anything.
These rights are natural because human nature being there primary source of evolution. • Violation of human rights by the state The concept of AFSPA, can be highly refuted by this school of thought. As according to them, the man made laws can be called as just and fair, only if theyare subjected to objective moral principles, and they does not violate the natural rights of the individuals, on whom they are imposed. The state by enacting AFSPA, to attain national integrity and to fulfill the rhetoric of nationalism, tries to violate those basic human rights of the individuals, which are conferred to them by an eternal authority, which prohibits the state from violate them. The provisions of AFSPA, such as section 4(a), gives the officer in charge, a power to arrest anyone, with minor suspicion of him possessing fire arms, and anyone who is part of an assembly of more than 5 people, and even kill them , if they according to that officer are trying to abscond.
Algernon doesn’t have a positive view on marriage, and in fact, views it as “demoralizing.” The author flip-flops what is trivial and what is important. Through the use of satire, he may actually make the opposite point of view: that certain traditions are sacred and relevant in society. Algernon and Jack have created double personas, Bunbury and Earnest. They did this because they wanted to appear more established and wealthy than they really were. Dishonesty is at the root of their actions, as they try to create the illusion of being someone different than they were and associating with higher-class people.
There are multiple opinions of what justice concludes of, but for now I will only focus on the two. I will be discussing the differences between Rawls’ “A Theory of Justice” and Nozick’s “Entitlement Theory.” Not only that, I will also support why Nozick’s “Entitlement Theory” is the superior theory of Justice. Rawls’ “A Theory of Justice” is based on the idea that society cooperates with one another for mutual advantage. If society is a matter of cooperation between equals, the conditions need to be defended and any inequalities among the social positions must be justified. However, in order for the agreement to be secured, we need to eliminate any bias of the rich or the poor, or the religious and the atheist.
