“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are”- Benjamin Franklin. Although many believe that the world is a minor step away from achieving equality for all, these individuals’ are strongly mistaken. Unfortunately, individuals’ often overlook various occurrences’ of inequitable treatment in their own lives; due to their modernized outlook on fairness, as well as what the term “being fair” truly stands for in society. Throughout my lifetime I have been exposed to an immense amount of lessons connecting to the same base of social justice issues worldwide. However, several short stories as well as seminars in particular have created a substantial impact on my perspective towards the topic.
While many disagree with Machiavelli’s points about what makes a good leader, I find them favorable. While leaders during this time were expected to please everyone, Machiavelli makes the point that it is not possible to do so. One argument he makes is “A man who wishes to make a profession of goodness in everything must necessarily
We are ignoring the people that need attention the most when we should be focusing on improving their personal well-being. We all have bad days, some more than others. We live in a society that tends to ignore other people’s problems; everyone solely looks out for themselves. We are all human, when we see another in pain it is our job to ease that pain and help them out. Unfortunately, some don’t receive that help early enough.
These self-inflicted hardships seem to be selfless, but they are later shown to be for each person’s benefit, some more obvious than others. The actions of the characters highlight the innate selfish nature of humans because every sacrifice made by a character is in self-preservation. At other times, characters do the exact opposite. They instinctively make decisions for their own relief or preservation without thinking about the consequences, and in turn harm themselves or others. This is saying that at our core, all of our decisions are
Equality is an ideal in which many people believe is worth fighting for. But it is indeed a dangerous goal to achieve both physically and mentally. In the story “Harrison Bergeron”, equality shifts to torture in which the beautiful must hide their beauty, and the intelligent must have their thinking to be disrupted. The result of this quest is disastrous and the land is filled with slow people, therefore there is no variety in the community. Equality is achieved, but at the price of freedom.
“Everyone makes mistakes in life but that doesn’t mean they have to pay for them the rest of their life. Sometimes good people make bad choices, it doesn’t mean they are bad. It means they 're human.” (Lovethispic) Second chances mean an opportunity to start over and come clean again.
This means that we will seek their happiness through this success and are constantly trying to be as successful as possible in order to make you happier. But since it is impossible to be truly happy on the basis of external factors, we the true happiness in fact almost never even feel it. Will experience some moments of apparent happiness when, for example, get a lot of money or achieve success at work or when this would have been, they would still unhappy because we connect our happiness with success. And mostly because the society in which we live based on such
That is why religion also has a big role, because it applies understanding in its followers. These are the ways that we can use to improve ourself of our flaws when it comes to nurturing and cherishing harmony in a diverse community. Before we can help others we must help ourselves, in hopes that our flaws do not transfer into the hearts of the people around us and cause more trouble than we already have. We must stop this childish thought that is within us, it is time for us to move on with our differences because if we do not do it then who
It is a convenient and comforting respond to unfortunate and even devastating ‘fate’. The pain becomes bearable to those who suffer because it is all part of a bigger plan, it is more than ‘you’. This concept is also built upon an irrational fundamental attitude, “the surrender of self to the ordering power of society.” (54) The problem of theodicy does not end at that.
Persverance All human creations and actions are imperfect. This means that someday these human creations will fail, will fall, or crumble down. Since ancient times, people have tried to come up with ways to improve life, productivity, and health. However, upcoming solutions had dissipated over time and civilization has been forced to not give up and to adapt to the changes. Here we can see the huge role that perseverance has played in the creation of a better civilization.
Fahrenheit 451 Every so often people express a desire to be left alone and not bothered, except in fact people do need to be bothered. If no one in the world was bothered then it would be all about security and happiness, and then no one would know how to do the things they know how to do in today 's world. The world wouldn 't be the same if no one got bothered.
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. By adopting the first agreement we use “white magic” to rid our mind of the “black magic”emotional poisonous spell and gain personal freedom.
Also, being disrespectful to a peer is downright degrading. You will make people feel bad about themselves, then in return the will give up. If everyone is just respectful to each other things will run more smoothly and the results will be much more positive. But besides from being dedicated and respectful, you also need to be really truly dedicated to what you are doing. A passionate leader will pour their heart and soul into whatever they are doing, and that alone makes the outcome a million times more authentic and amazing then someone who just kind of showed up to the auditions and made it.
Stressing can give a feeling that everybody would be happy living without. I think that if we got rid of stress in this world people would be so much happier. These reasons are very truthful on why people get stressed but there are also many more. Getting rid of stress would change this world for the better.
