It teaches us not to discriminate between different human beings that are created by the same Almighty. Equality is a critical factor in today’s society. Human beings from all races, social backgrounds, economic status and origins need to be treated equally with respect. It speaks of the God gifted rights that each human being has. Moreover, the speech also touches upon the fact that we all live in one world and hence developing peace and brotherhood is

In the final paragraph of the essay, Jackie Robinson states how he believes in mankind, man’s rectitude, and the morality of a liberated country. These qualities constitute the essence of righteousness. The belief in virtue is a characteristic that enables civilizations to come together despite all difference. With rectitude, Robinson holds that society has a chance to generate equality between two races. The athlete also maintains that all imperfections, or flaws within society, can be solved by diverse peoples coming together to solve common disputes.
Barber’s claim is sound because it agrees with the noble ideals set by our founding fathers and can be applied universally as every country naturally wishes to have a peaceful and educated society. Barber uses logic in arguing for mass public education, quoting two of the most influential founders of our democracy, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. Barber knows that in a democracy, the people decide what is best for the nation, and if the nation is uneducated they will make the wrong decisions. Jefferson and Adams warn about those “tyrannies” of an uneducated society, which is why Barbers claims are truthful that education allows people to “think critically and act with deliberation”(6). To answer the question of how a society achieves equality and opportunity for its citizens, one should totally disregard William A. Henry’s callous remarks and illegitimate claims in his essay, “In Defense of Elitism.” His reasoning for selective educational opportunities tries to divide our country, which will discriminate individuals, amplify class
They list in their Credo that superior customer service is a number one priority to provide services that are of quality and is reliable. Verizon states that they make it easy for customers to do business with them, by listening, anticipating and responding to their needs ("Our Culture"). Verizon’s mission is to grow as a company and keep their
As we go around showing appreciation and thanking others we are passing around superior vibrations. It can teach many including our upcoming generations of how to behave and treat others in society. Good vibrations can teach others how to keep a healthy and positive society, in which many may seem to show more respect towards others. For example, in the article “Message to Grassroots” by Malcolm X it states, “Instead of us airing our differences in public, we have to realize we’re all the same family.” (Malcolm X, page 2). This quote proves how appreciating instead of us complaining can give a lot.
Instead of acting out of self interest, working to enhance one’s species as a whole is what sets the human race apart. Deeds of compassion, patience and understanding are defining traits of humanity that strengthen the people around them. Human nature at its best combats inner primal urges with order, unification and civilization. These conditions are the ideal environment for collective learning and progress for all of society. Throughout these two texts, this environment is
In many ways virtue ethics looks at the innate or intrinsic presence of virtue in all individuals. Human beings are guided by the goal of ideal happiness and believing that people will make their choices, for the right reasons, because at the core people are virtuous and good (Hursthouse, 2012). Utilitarian Ethics: Utilitarian perspectives are based upon the premise that what is most beneficial for society is that which provides the greatest pleasure or happiness and the least amount of pain or negative consequences for the largest number. In other words it centers on the general philosophical concept of the needs of the many is more important that the needs of the minorities or the individual (Mill).
The final formal theory that I have found influential is the Ethics of Justice. Shapiro and Gross (2013), defined justice as a “mode of choosing that is universal, a rule of choosing that we want all people to adopt always in all situation”. This acts as a platform for the Ethics of Justice which deals with laws, rights, and policies, and “implies procedures for making decisions that respect the equal sovereignty of the people” (Shapiro & Gross, 2013, p. 22). My personal philosophy aligns to this feature because I find that lawful behaviors make a safe and equitable environment more obtainable. Furthermore, by teaching students these concepts, they will become more concerned for the “welfare of the school as a community, a concept that extended beyond the school’s walls and into the local environment” (Shapiro & Gross, 2013,
In my opinion, meaningful happiness and gratitude emerge after one finds his/her meaning of life, instead of the other way round. Conclusion To sum up, positive psychologists, believing that the movement is not fundamentally flawed, suggest that there is objective human nature as well as individual nature. This implies that communication can be fostered and quantitative research strategies should be used. Also, they propose that discrete emotions can be attributed into positive and negative valence, while positive valence is beneficial to one’s own well-being. They also think that this movement is sound for its purpose of promoting a better well-being to all people in the world, leading them to a utopia.
