Sedat Çifci 122052015 Bingöl University JUSTICE, WHAT JUSTICE? Has any of you ever thought what justice is and why people need to be just. As we look at the book “The Republic” by Plato, we see that it is set out to explain what the justice is, how and why people ought to be just. Plato employs a perfect way of explaining it. He applies to the dialogues through his teacher Socrates, and through these dialogues he seeks to shed a light upon what the justice is.
And since human beings are naturally selfish and egoistic, nobody will look after the needs of others (limited altruism) (Rachels, 2011, p. 83). Together, these characteristics make the state of nature a miserable place to be in. The underlying assumption is that human beings are naturally selfish, meaning that they want to maximize self-benefit; and are rational in nature, implying that people know what is in their best interests and understand the effective way to attain that which maximizes their benefits. This selfishness and rationality then unveils the disbenefits of the state of nature and hence create a desire for humans to escape from the state of nature. According to Hobbes, in order to escape the intolerable state of nature and to gain mutual benefit, selfish rational people would choose to cooperate with each other, also proven by the Prisoner’s Dilemma (Rachels, 2011, pp.
“The world just wants us to fit in.” – Mr Incredible ‘The Incredibles’ is set in a world where society does not encourage individuality. Society opposes and supresses everyone who is different and forces them to fit into everyday life. The supers are banned from embracing their talents and are made to conform to the norm of society.

There was no force to hold the Senate in check, allowing them to run free and rule through might and poisonous strength. The Tarquins feared the power the Plebs had to overturn them and their dynasty of kingly rule and create a new government, which they did. What the plebs that dethroned the Tarquins did not know, though, was that this fear the kings had for them was the only thing keeping them safe and protected from
For example death is an unpleasant experience where people are fearful losing their lives. There is also the sensation of being competitive where anything other than person’s success triggers their own tears. It is a very clear argument that human nature is define as sensational however use of emotion and the problem that no one could really use this system in politics just sounds too strange. Hobbes define human rights as to everyone have the right to life where its a narrow interpretation of life which means that life equals breathing but no more. There 's no government quality of life but life is also the most important thing around.
This individual has no strength or weakness to a certain faction, and has the ability to think and act as all the factions would. They are seen by the society as uncontrollable and are eliminated as they are found out. This is the category that Tris, the main character falls into. Throughout the movie she is forced to hide her versatility and can only think in the way a dauntless would, her chosen faction. She struggles with this as she watched the faction system fall apart when Erudite tries to over power Abnegation as the leaders in the
Plato 's major political work and one of the most prominent in the whole history of philosophy is «The Republic», composed in the form of dialogue. In this book Plato suggests the principles of what he thinks to be an ideal state. Plenty of scholars regard «The Republic» as an authoritarian and closed society and they certainly have reasons for that. Indeed, most principles of state organization suggested by Plato can be hardly considered democratic or liberal. In fact , political structure and functioning of the state as Plato sees it must be purely aristocratic.
Many villains I know don’t have a ‘welfare state' of mind or an option of looking to live off of government benefits. For them it’s a matter of their integrity - they'd rather go hungry or commit armed robbery to get ahead, than ask for a hand out from the
They work for their benefit and their willing only. They do not by democracy, and they do not care about their citizen’s vote. They come to power by force and never give up from their positions because they do not care about citizen’s feeling. For instance, in the Middle East, there are many leaders that not care about democracy, election, or their people. They have monarchy system, and they never want to give up from their positions even if the time of their ruling was ended.
Another downside to the authoritarian rule would be the complete loss of freedom. Basic rights would cease to exist. No economic freedom to work, buy, or sell, no political freedom to say anything against the ruler at all, and no socio-cultural freedom to simply live life. Everything would be dictated for the sake of the authoritarian vision. It would not be irresponsible to say that order and discipline can be achieved in a democratic state.
