equality recognizes the flaws in this society and he knew in his heart that it was not right how they were treated and forced to live. Equality began to understand to be totally healthy you have to focus on yourself a little. this is a great lesson because it teaches you courage and it shows you how you cannot control God 's plan for individuals lives.

This form of love would be ideal for society. Agapic love shows that acting in a moral way and attempting to treat everyone as equals can create an ideal society that generates happiness for others without the expectation of any reciprocation. In return, this would create a community of individuals that care for each other just because they are people. Although Agapic may not be as focused on benefiting the self, making it less appealing to most individuals, it is still the most morally ideal form of
He tried to do the best he could with what God gave him. He should get a nice raise for trying so hard.” This influences the story because it seems that because they are so equal, even if they just only try they still get credit for it. A main similarity is that people who are astute wear (0:0) handicaps and those who were idiotic didnt have to wear handicaps. This impacts the story because it shows you how different 2081 is compared to 2017 people are now expected to be equal and no one can be who they want to be, if they express themselves without following the rules they are required to have handicaps on or if they’re naturally smart, and pretty they threaten the rule of being “equal.”
What is selflessness? The definition- Selfless is the opposite of selfish. If you're selfless, you think less about yourself, and more about others — you're generous and kind. So many amazing characters and people are selfless. Without even knowing it, anyone no matter how big or small the act can make a difference in a person’s life for the better.
“Happiness is based on a just discrimination of what is necessary, what is neither necessary nor destructive, and what is destructive” (57). In a Utopian society, everyone is happy. Ironically, utopian societies tend to be marketed as the perfect place, when really when the reality is they are dysfunctional. In The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas, Ursula Le Guin suggests that a happy community needs individual sacrifices and conforming to this idea continues the sacrificing. Community members are pressured to conform and not question traditions, even when the traditions hurt an individual.
They used to go there by the hundreds’” (Fitzgerald 175). Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald’s message is clear: beware false, empty, self-centered interactions, for they will most definitely lead to all-consuming aloneness. He says that it’s possible to feel the loneliest in a big crowd, and that the love you think you need may not be fulfilling after all. He teaches that everyone desires meaningful interactions with other humans, and that life means nothing without them.
“Egoism states that each man’s primary moral obligation is to achieve his own welfare, well-being, or self-interest… He should be ‘selfish’ in the sense of being the beneficiary of his own moral actions.” (Glossary of Definitions by Ayn Rand, pg. 12) In the book everything Prometheus does benefit him to reach his welfare in Happiness. On page 95 of Anthem Equality writes “For I know what happiness is possible to me on earth.
It is the goal everyone seeks some secret key to, expecting an external force to magically unlock eternal joy. However, no secret key to joy exists. While material things provide temporary pleasure or sorrow, nothing in the world can ‘grant’ continual elation. Instead happiness comes from a positive mentality, where a person appreciates their blessings and strives to overcome their challenges. The true thinkers, like Lincoln, realize that only they hold the power over their happiness.
Success has become relative. When we initially do something that we believe is a success and the public deems it unspectacular, we no longer feel pride and instead feel that we are adequate. America’s social system is loosely based on a meritocracy, with its central idea being that if everyone is presented with the same opportunities to succeed, than everything is equal and fair. If we cannot succeed, it is only our own incompetence that we can
The people of Omelas are materialistically happy but are morally unhappy. The narrator implies that happiness is knowing the differences between what are needs, desires, and detriments to a person. Every person alive has basic needs which are deemed necessary, such as sustenance and shelter. All honest humans will admit that they have wants and desires that are not necessary, and many push the limits to attain them. And always there are those who are willing to allow the suffering of others to achieve their own desires.

I feel that the speech that you chose was very unique. Robin Williams was such an amazing person and he truly connects with the audience every single time he speaks. I agree on how important it is for a speaker to maintain eye contact at all times to demonstrate respect and that he put effort at learning the words and at the same time being extemporaneous. Confidence is also a very important factor and Williams showed it throughout the whole speech. You did a wonderful job, just remember to include the main points and how he managed to pass from one point to another.
Peter Singer’s argument in, “Rich and Poor” is that we have an obligation to aid those in developing countries who are starving. What he claims is that it is immoral not to aid them and yet most of us still make no effort leaving us to be considered ignorant. Throughout his argument he made great points by providing statistics, explaining the challenges of accessibility as well as the difference between spending excess currency on luxuries rather than aiding those in poverty compared to directly being held responsible for their deaths such as murder. Singer has made a sound case with his three premises, however this is where controversy in his opinion can arise. Specifically looking at premise three, a claim that only some absolute poverty can be prevented is what can become a
Young people in the 21st Century need to reevaluate their ethics; David McCullough is helping them understand that by explaining that they need to be honest with themselves and their reality. His scathing criticism of them and their culture, philosophies, and ideologies, is justified and insightful; teens in the United States allows special to become a meaningless term, prefers to win instead of achieving, and cares too much about superficial accomplishments instead of internal growth. McCullough makes a point throughout his speech to say that being special is not just given to you; teenagers are not special by default. In the speech, while he is explaining why young people should look forward to more than just being special or different, in
