Faith and righteousness were two things one could not live without, and the religious norms were to be followed. Because of how closely religion and moral was tied together, suicide was considered morally wrong due to its classification as a sin. Hamlet himself claims in the «O´ that this too, too solid flesh would melt» soliloquy that he would commit suicide had it not been deemed wrong by the church. In other words, the play Hamlet treats suicide as a
Religion itself, is the belief in a superhuman or entity that guides us. It acts as a set of standards that affects our faith and ideas on morality, beliefs and the way to live our lives. In The Chosen, by Chaim Potok, it is clearly visible that religion affects people tremendously. Both Reuven and Danny are Jewish yet, they are divided due to religious differences between Hasidism and Orthodox Judaism, in Brooklyn, New York during the mid-1940s. With such differences in cultures, the boys face tensions caused by their limiting religion.
Jones supports Atticus’s honest nature by saying that, “Reflection gives us humility, forces us to confront our own frailties and limitations; and compassion helps us love…”(Jones 152-153).

This is an example of katabasis because Telemachus is skeptical and confused about his family, especially his father.

The challenge finding almost perfect friends is strenuous and difficult. Every person has their own likes and dislikes. In Chaim Potok’s heart-wrenching book, The Chosen, two completely different boys and one father named Danny Saunders, Reuven Malter, and David Malter.

Just because one person has different religious views does not mean they can not good friends.
While these moral codes can be manipulated by conventions dictated by religion or law, they can also be developed through personal ordeals and events (and the lessons that people learn from these occurrences). All of the moral codes in No Country For Old Men are relatable to human society to a certain extent, including Ed Tom’s strong belief in religion and law, Moss’ determination to keep his loved ones safe, and even Chigurh’s fierce dedication to his dignity and honor. On the other hand, these characters are also relatable because of their moral flaws, from Moss’ greed and overconfidence to Ed Tom’s selfishness in the end, when he decides to retire instead of dedicating himself to apprehending Chigurh. In this Neo-western film the traditional archetypes of the hero and the villain are skewed. The old western films’ solid black and white boundaries between good and evil characters are no longer relatable in a time where most members of society fall into the grey.
“The hippocratic oath, one of the most historically common physicians’ oaths, states that, ‘most especially must I tread with care in matters of life and death...this awesome responsibility must be faced with great humbleness and awareness of my own frailty. Above all, I must not play at God.’” With this being said, in matters of life and death you have to really think and consider what is best for the patient and that you can’t mess with what God has planned.

Although, I still believe that euthanasia should be legal because life isn’t worth living whenever you’re in so much pain that life isn’t even worth living anymore. If someone wants to be euthanized for medical reasons or some serious pain then they have every right to be able to make that
