Because each person does not know what values and norms another person has, in order to keep oneself safe, it causes people to draw away from others. Another reason why I disagree with this theory is because it is self-contradictory by stating that two views can both be right. If it is true that nothing is right or wrong, then why believe this theory if there are no absolute truths? By stating that there are no objective truths, that is an objective
Sometimes it can mean saying more than the truth, and saying what the human emotions feel. We do this in our everyday lives, actually. It makes our lives easier. Sometimes we say things that are not completely true because it is the “right thing to say”, or it’s what is “socially expected to say.” With Meursault, however, what you see is what you get. He did not say or do things to be politically correct or to end up on good terms with anyone.
One misunderstanding that people also think is that religion is always something good. However, whenever anything good goes wrong they turn to question the belief of religion. We first must realize that God is not the reason for our own suffering. Sadly, in the world we live in people have bad intentions and poor morals. People choose to do the wrong thing and it affect the people around them.
For example when somebody found a lost wallet in class and that decide to return the wallet to its owner, he would not get the money but peace in mind. This is what religion teaches people, it states that people are promised a eternal resting place on heaven if people treat other with kindness. But this argument create a problem, according to the author: “We were raise to be a decent person, and that’s what we are… So it seems clear that many motives for doing the right thing have nothing
This in turn could result in anarchy or social tumult. Many individuals living in challenging conditions or times who have natural talents and abilities most likely would want to keep their benefits in order to help improve the situation they are in. Such people would certainly be unwilling to share their talents with the less fortunate. Rawls disregards this fact, believing that the ones with the natural abilities live in a great environment while the ones who do not carry that ability live in a horrible and corrupted environment. This is not necessarily true because there are many times where someone has a natural talent, but cannot use it as efficiently because of the oppressed life they
This plays a huge part into why people lie. It often happens when individuals have a lack of problem solving skills and the capability to handle abrupt situations. From time to time, we admit to ourselves that we have done some mistakes, but we do not know how to solve them. In situations like this, we tend to lie as a quick escape instead of facing the actual problem. The truth may sure cause some conflict for the mean time, but lying instead of facing the problem would cause so much more conflict in the future.
There is another potential problem for charismatic leaders. If they do not delegate their tasks because of their over-trust in themselves and lack of trust in others, they might be overwhelmed with their tasks and can be affected negatively. Moreover, the systems may get into a deadlock after the charismatic leader is gone. It might not always be possible to replace a charismatic leader with another one. For this reason, distributive or democratic leadership might be a good alternative where more than one person takes
It also states that ethics and the law typically go hand in hand, however it is not always the case, as the law must be based on ethical principles for it to be legitimate, and not only on their legal implementation by fear of being punished, ethical principles must take superiority when the law disagrees with ethics (Breit, 2007). Breit (2007) wrote that practitioners should choose the ethical choice rather than following the law, however the choices must be motivated by the right reasons, and the consequences of action must be well thought
Therefore, self-control is not self-gratification, indulgence, weakness and unrestraint. All of these practices lead a person to sin because they are seeking to please only themselves and not God. Those who seek to gratify themselves do not seek the needs of others. Many people seek things that will make them feel better about themselves which may lead to serving others but their motivation is self-centered. Selfishness is a large obstacle to self-control.
According to Williams (2008) pessimists are those people who have low opinion in life. They tend to expect the worst in life and from others. Also, they have poor behavior in dealing with the people around them. When you are a pessimist you think that events that happens in your life such as failures are beyond your control when in fact you could have done something to avoid such bad event but you insisted that you cannot do anything
