Participation trophies given to children has been a controversial topic amongst all parents. Some say that one should be rewarded based off of effort, other than talent. Others say that one should not be rewarded for failure. They believe that you only earn what you work for. Giving participation trophies to children do nothing other than set their life up with complacency.
This fear is because of the unfair rules that they follow with knowing the fact, that they cannot change it. This fear in characters makes readers believe they live in a dystopian society with no freedom. “It isn't fair, it isn't right,” Mrs. Hutchinson screamed, and then they were upon her. (Jackson, par.79). This shows the readers that the character is scared and thinks that is not fair.
They compare their well of lives to the horrible life of the child and are thankful for what they have. They do not want to end up like the child so they do not take their lives for granted and they dwell in their happiness and prosperity instead. The narrator says, “The trouble is that we have a bad habit…of considering happiness as something rather stupid.”
When the most important source; family betrayed them and cannot be trusted anymore, the child often feels that it is not possible to trust anyone in this world. They will end up being cautious with everyone they know in order to protect themselves from being abused again. The abused victim not always comfortable with people being close to them because of the bad experience they had been through had taught them that the loved ones cannot be trusted. Some of the victims may have the doubt and insecurity which makes them being a suspicious person over everything that they witnessed. Having a trust
To leave the Sadhu behind was fine for all the mountaineers as in the end the benefit is greater for all the people as they would have reached their goal and all of them would be happy. Ethical Egoist, who believes that the maximum benefit is their own, would have done the same, satisfying their desires before helping someone else. Even though the decision by the ethical egoist makes one happy, it is not the best way to take decision in the Sadhu situation as McCoy still feels guilty about this incident. Therefore, this method did not produce the most ethical
He calls many of these beliefs myths and proposes to why they are myths. One of the myths he found is that “Spanking Works Better”, Straus proves through research that spanking essentialy does not work better and that “time-outs” are just as effective. In my opinion Straus is wrong and research like that can never be 100 percent correct. “Time-Outs” when first introduced to a child might be very effective, but after much time and many “Time-Outs” that child will get used to it and not fear it anymore. A child will always fear coporal punishment because it is painful and nothing will change that.
They want to make sure when punishing an immoral act, there is benefit to society. Shaw says this because utilitarianism does give established laws and reasoning behind them. Shaw also says that Utilitarians say that our system of punishment as it functions, succeeds in rehabilitating many convicts and discourages them from future mistakes. his reasons for saying this. I think that Utilitarians favor exploring the alternatives because doing something to someone, even a criminal, who has committed a heinous crime, morally wrong, and two wrongs do not make a right, it is setting the wrong view for society.
Megan conclusion said that a person is not less free if they act out of love. She continues to say that even though you want to do everything to make your partner happy it does not mean that they control your decisions. Even though someone might be in love it doesn’t not mean everything they do is to make their partner happy, therefore just because someone is in love does not mean they lose some of their freedoms. I think that it was the best argument because it seemed to be the most applicable to most people's lives. Everyone has people they love and if they were controlled by those people there would be little to no free will in the world.
These ideas of how many people give limitless love and loyalty to someone, yet wanting some attention/credits, as they deserve it. This shows us how sad it is for many people to not get treated fairly because what they give doesn’t get returned to them. In the end Monique is so into making sure everything is to be perfect for Jordan, and standing up to him. Doesn’t Monique deserve at least a little back from Jordan? There are so many people we hurt because we aren’t aware of the love we have.
People think that disobedience is a wrong thing to do, but what they do not know is that it is what makes them more powerful by realizing they are doing the right thing. Most of the families out there try to raise their children to be good, respectful and responsible, by teaching them that disobedience will lead them to a not suitable life. We all do not listen to our parents sometimes, because we think that we are right and that we are doing the right choices. That is a reason that disobedience may sometimes be wrong, but sometimes it could really help us in many different ways and even change a person's life. There many reasons why disobedience could be a great thing to many people.
The only way to break these spell is to make new agreements based on truth, because the truth will set us free. Gossip or “mitote” is mixed up with many conflicting messages, it’s learned and agreed with at a very young age because it’s a normal form of communication in our society. It makes us feel better to see someone else feel as badly as we do. “Misery likes company” (Ruiz 38). We are infected with and contagious to others with fear and suffering.
From these actions they gain a lot of happiness. Therefore, according to utilitarianism more happiness is produced by molesting the child instead of not molesting the child, therefore this is the right act to do according to this theory. This sort of logic is clearly absurd and immoral and contradictory to the principle of utility because if people were to then find out it would result in the reduction of
