The act of being intelligent does not satisfy him, rather he uses his intelligence as a mechanism to make others feel as though they are incompetent to him. The Underground Man strives to have a role of authority over other individuals, however, his low insignificant position in society detains him from even feeling socially
In a scenario like Nightcrawler people become inhumane, not caring at all how actions affect other people. They become interested in only what is valuable or profitable to them. In a scenario like “Harrison Bergeron” people are made inhumane by the excessive amount of regulation. A radical solution will initiate more problems than it solves. The only solutions with any chances to solve moral problems fall somewhere in between these
When someone tries too hard to protect another person, they often end up hurting them more than they help. In Fahrenheit 451 the government tries to protect the people from too much knowledge which allows them to control the opinion and thoughts of everyone. While, in some ways this control benefits people, it also takes away from their humanity in ways that outweigh the good that comes from it. The high suicide and violence rates in the society, that are indirectly caused by the control of knowledge, show further evidence that keeping knowledge from people has more negative effects than positive. In Fahrenheit 451, the people are protected from too much knowledge, which makes them superficially happy, but also limits their humanity and causes
“People in power act unethical”(Miller 1).”Rich people are more likely to lie, cheat”(Choi 1). Power and superiority is too much for a person and corrupts them. Golding shows this in the book with Jack, once he was not voted leader, he became his own leader and made his own camp. After that he went savage and eventually started
He feels terrible for the pain he has caused them. It is one thing to have his own case to worry about, but it is another to be weighed down with the guilt of being, however unintentionally, the source of these poor fools' misery. The Underground Man would likely respond differently. His recurring desire for power over other people needs to be understood. He does not care for money as a source of wealth as is common, but instead, he views it as a method of controlling other people.
This was caused by the lack of regulations and laws which allowed businessmen to get away with paying their employees unethically low wages without benefits. This lack of regulations and laws also enabled business to cut corners, which lead to unsafe product, such as spoiled meat as seen in document 2, and child labor, which is seen in document 3, in order to save money. During the gilded era, corrupt politicians added to the problems and injustices. Document 4 shows this using a comic. In the comic it shows that the “bosses of the senate” were the politicians which were backed up by big business and corporations.
People these days can be hypocritical telling other people they can 't do something ,and turn around and do it themselves. Some people don 't care that their ignorance of the law destroys others rights. As the government becomes less laissez faire; they gain more power over everyday life and strip people of their freedoms and rights.

Can society function without respect? No, society can’t function without respect because people will pick on other people for little things and then eventually push that person far enough to causes harm to themselves or someone else because they have never been complimented and will feel like they're useless. If bosses disrespect their workers then their workers will not like their boss and possibly quit. When they quit they will spread the word that that boss is mean and either convince others to quit or get the boss fired because of them being mean. Then in the worst case all the workers might quit and have nobody to run that company and if it is an electric company than no electricity and no electricity then no microwave or oven and no food
Corruption unfortunately was a result of the growth and it became more prevalent in society, which is why it ended up being Rome’s downfall. All of which affecting the relationship the Romans had with their state. Crime and laziness were common occurrences, because there was such a big difference between the parties that arose during this time. The citizens that were poor had nowhere else to turn to but crime because things were getting so bad. This is obviously how Catiline was able to get so far in his plans because many felt as though the leadership of their state was failing them.
Sadly, advertisers are being duped by data mining companies which provide data that kind of represents consumers in a false light. This data is mostly obtained from online platforms and as is common knowledge, not everything online is true. One particular source of data for these companies is social media and the lives people claim to live on social media 7/10 times is probably a lie. This type of data is what makes advertisers miss the mark in most of their campaigns. They end up targeting the wrong market whenever they use this data.
As a consequence, of the legal case between Mrs. Liebeck (plaintiff) and McDonald’s (defendant) many companies and citizens started a campaign against this kind of lawsuits. In fact, they considered the Hot Coffee lawsuit a frivolous one that took economical advantage of the legal system to make some “easy money.” So, the media turned it up side down the “Hot Coffee” legal case and Mrs. Liebeck and the entire situation became a joke. As a consequence, this case became the example and the propaganda of why the Tort reform was “necessary” or that was what the media and the government made us believe. So, a Tort Reform limits the general public’s rights to go to court. The idea with the Tort reform was to make more difficult for injured people
A considerable measure of times, technology has the capacity help us, however it likewise influences our lives in a bigger number of courses than we might suspect.
