Both Atticus Finch and Troy Maxson complete the role as a breadwinner; Troy works in a sanitation department and Atticus is a lawyer, though, they do differ in their manners of taking care of and raising their family. This quotation of Atticus is a crucial piece of moral advice that governs Scout’s development throughout the rest of the novel. It gives us insight on the sole principal in which Atticus lives his life, and with every opportunity, he willingly preaches it onto his children so that they grow up to become people who are not affected by racial prejudice. In the first quotation, the simplicity of it represents the uncomplicated manner in which Atticus guides himself. What furthers the success of his fulfilling of a father is the way he words this principle; Atticus knows that if he uses words or sentences which are too complicated, Scout will not understand, therefore, will not be able to live by this principal.
Inspector Javert is a character whose personal philosophies may easily be related to ideas of other philosophers. As an inspector, he is working on the government’s side. While it is quite clear in the film that the government is not moral or ethical (to a certain extent), Javert feels that his job is extremely important and anyone who breaks the law is immoral and, in a sense, evil. Javert would agree with Jeremy Bentham’s philosophy that human behavior is controlled by imposing sanctions. Javert even tried controlling his own behavior by strictly following the law his entire life.
The Amish men went to court to fight this case. The state wants to ensure that its citizens have a proper education and can be good members of society. Yet in this case the Amish men argue that they provide the children education, but in a different way. The children were learning manual skills. The judges looking over the case saw that the Amish children raised in these communities were being better members of society than those who came out of a public school.
He shines a light on how society has forced us to think that we must have unconditional love for our families and if you are the eldest sibling in a family, you are expected to be more responsible and be a role model. Baldwin shows us that this isn’t always how it is. This is something that the readers can relate to and through the story and characters we can learn something about ourselves. In the same way, Baldwin uses class to show us that even though you are middle class, you can still suffer, and even though you are lower class, you can still succeed. Without the prospects of creed and class, the story would not have the same relatable factors and
As Piggy attempts to hold a position of power, he constantly demonstrates that rules are pivotal to the well being of a society. He strongly agrees with Jack at the beginning of the story when he says, “We’ve got to have rules and obey them. After all, we’re not savages”(Golding 48). Still feeling the cap of civility, Piggy understands that without rules, they are no longer boys, but become savages. He tries to help Ralph teach the others this, but the other boys do not understand that if there are no rules, their society will fall.
I believe that perhaps the paramount importance of ethics and moral growth comes from the fact that morality is an essential element of the existence and survival of society and it is a fundamental component of society being and character. There is not any society that remains governed without a set of laws and rules for relations of its members with each other. Morals are served as the criteria adopted to guide people. In other words, morals aim at strengthening the social relationship and strengthen the adjustment of the individual with societies and acts according to their beliefs. Therefore, there should be in every society common morals agreed upon by females and males to follow.

As a result, Equality is faced with conflicts, internally and externally. By doing so, he captures his freedom from the detrimental and contagious dictatorship. As Equality begins the stage of curiosity and the idea of learning at a young age, he is forced to conform to societal rules and regulations, not being more intelligent than his brothers, as they are equal. The first struggle that is against him is the power of education and learning. He
He believes he is “..see[ing] life like it is” (141) in order to rightfully take his place as the head of the family by making this decision for them, regardless of the hope this house brought them all. The rest of the Younger family is disconcerted by this new business deal, and asks Walter if this is what he truly wants and believes is right, to which he responds that he’s “Going to feel fine…[like] a man…” (144). Due to internally knowing he still had prove himself but not physically doing so, Walter’s delicate, false pride in being a man doesn’t allow him to consider how his actions affect
Other people consider death penalty as a effective way to prevent revenge by those criminals and threaten other offenders in order to keep the order of society. From my point of view, there’s no absolute right or wrong to judge one thing and we can only get a justified conclusion from comparing the opposite two sides. Before debating the two sides, I would like to use the information from The State of Arizona Office of the Attorney General to introduce the
