Montag killed Beatty he thought what he was doing was right. Montag was justified for killing Beatty because he thought he was protecting himself and Faber, Beatty had to die for society to change, and Beatty wanted to die. Montags anger towards Beatty may have persuaded his decisions and made him do what he did to Beatty. In the event that Montag killed Beatty, he was justified because he was protecting Faber and himself. In Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury explains that Beatty kept pushing Montag’s limits.
Motivism is determining the rightness or wrongness of an action based on the motive for said action. The motive for Manson 's actions stems from his hatred and lack of understanding of society, saying "I look at the things that you do, and I don 't understand" (Manson). By saying this Manson is sharing with the court that his ruthless killings are a direct reflection of what is wrong with society. This strategy can be somewhat convincing, showing that the way you act can be a reflection of the interactions that you have with people in society. Manson used this strategy to distract the court from his wrong doings and focus more on the issues in our
The awnser to this question lies my opinion also on how Socrates made his choice. Take for instance a murderer is punished to death and guilty of his crimes, he should be punished not only to be just and reprimand him for his actions, but also to protect the lives of other people from getting hurt. In Socrates situation, he is unjustly accused of corrupting the youth and failing to acknowledge the gods his city acknowledged. This in opinioin is not only a real crime but the crime even if he truly committed it does not match the punishment. To conclude, Socrates in some peoples eyes may seem that the right thing for him to do is to escape and save his own life, even though he would be ricking the the lives of his friends and family and inevitably be caught later on down the road the face once again the same situation.
This play was not only recreated for entertainment purposes, but to set as an example to us of how we as people can abuse our power and have actual consequences to those decisions. It shows that we can set someone to die just to save the skin on our own backs. Actual people died, not just these characters but actual human beings lost their lives because of a group or practically an entire community of people lied. It shows that we can gang up on the weaker link and have this mob mentality like a cult. The crucible also sets the example to make history not repeat its self as it has been doing in our country lately.
Upper-class members had to have harsher punishments that someone normal. Hammurabi’s code was guilty until proven innocent, unlike america it is innocent until proven guilty. Hammurabi once stated “to make justice visible in the land, to destroy the wicked person and the evil-doer, that the strong might not injure the weak." Hammurabi also wanted to make it possible that upper-class people won’t be robbed or killed as much as usual, his one of his code’s stated "If a man has destroyed the eye of a man of the gentleman class, they shall destroy his eye .... If he has destroyed the eye of a commoner ... he shall pay one mina of silver.
one observer described her as she walked to her death.” This quote also illustrates the theme of man’s inhumanity to man due to the fact that Sophie was about to be executed just for trying to reveal the truth to her brainwashed society. Clearly, the idea of man’s inhumanity towards other man is clearly present in these two texts and is obviously a major concern to us
He also uses these devices to show that society is partly to blame for this butchery and could have avoided this ridiculous situation had they changed. His most powerful device, however, is emotion, by reminding the court of how these boys’ families will be crushed and their future generations shamed, should the court decide on the death penalty. Darrow’s perspective is that war transformed society, which then taught these boys to place a cheap value on human life. Darrow uses historical references to establish that the world has been drastically influenced by brutality and these ways of violence have been taught to the younger generations. He states: “These boys were brought up in it.
In Law 195 it states, “If a son has struck his father, his hands shall be cut off.” This law seems, as well, too harsh. The son should get a punishment but getting your hands cut off for hitting his father would lead to son being scared. In conclusion, Hammurabi 's code is unjust. The evidence shows that the Personal Injury Laws didn’t protect all people equally, the Property Laws punishments were too harsh, and the Family Laws can cause someone 's death. Most of Hammurabi’s laws are not just to the people or society of Babylon.
It’s immoral to be in favor of the death penalty. People who support it believe that by executing criminals well prevent them from murdering again, and they feel they deserve to feel the feeling of cruelty as they did to others. Citizens of the United States are fond to similar privileges and assurances. As Americans, we have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. People believe that if a murder takes this rights from a person, why should they still be connected to society?
The question of morality in a criminal case has always been a topic of concern. A question arises when considering the following; does a good cause justify a serious crime? In John Brown’s case, he uses the abolitionist’s cause to justify the murder of several men. Though his intentions were good, and his cause was mighty, it’s not morally sound to murder people. Many would argue that he was a hero, that fighting for the end of slavery in the manner he did was an act of bravery.
The expository titled, “The Avalon Project: Code of Hammurabi” states a few of the Hammurabi codes and laws. It is written that, “If a man put out the eye of another man, his eye shall be put out.” This is a good law because it stops the victim from having hatred on his attacker and not acting out of revenge to try and inflict more harm that was dealt on himself. It protects the people and less people are killed. When someone or a group acts out of revenge, the ending is usually far worse than how it started. For example, that visual image by Rob Rogers shows me that even the U.S. citizens felt that the nuclear bomb in Hiroshima, Japan was too much and not called for.
Madison was the main and most important figure who wrote the constitution, even though at first he was one of the several that did not think the Bill of Rights should have been written. Later, he first had the idea and considered to change some things in the Constitution, thinking that it was missing something, pointing to the idea of adding the amendments, he wanted to protect the civil
Adding the Bill of Rights to the Constitution, was not only a celebration for those who yearned for individual liberty, but it was also meant to be more than just a “parchment barrier;” however, for that to happen citizens must understand the content and the meaning of the Bill of Rights. Otherwise, the government could take advantage and compromise these liberties in the name of security and general welfare. The amendments in the Bill of Rights can save people’s life and yet revoke in the same. Amendment I, II, and IV are the best examples to support that.
“For those who understand witchcraft, these people are merciless that they are out to kill innocent people. We deserve the government t protection but it has turned out that our government defends such serious crimes in the society. We still want the two ladies to be paraded publically and taught a lesson,” he added. However, area OCPD Benjamin Kimwele defended the police saying they acted to ‘protect’ the rule of law as outlined in the constitution. “As government, we don’t protect crimes but we have to ensure the lives of people are defended.
Understanding the emotional connection between father and son is key in how Dubus telling a story of revenge. If the reader did not care for Frank then there wouldn 't be such a great impacted when he is murdered. The creation of the reader 's relationship not just with Frank, but with Matt is appealing to there emotions and is
