Filial piety is another traditional value from which Lung’s sons have strayed. Wang Lung, and his ancestors before him, all practice a traditional value called filial piety, which is basically just respecting elders. In this custom, the older members of the household are treated with the utmost respect and are never disobeyed or denied. To defy an older family member is considered unlawful. Even though this ideal is important, Wang Lung’s sons go directly against their father 's wishes.
We can all learn a thing a two from our elders and can never stop learning. We are all grateful for the sacrifices my father and his father made. Children are treated very strictly by their parents. But aunts and uncles are much nicer to their nephews and nieces. I remember I was not allowed to hang out with certain kids if my mom saw them as the trouble maker types.
There’s have been times when people were not happy with how long it has taken to pass a law since the process it self is a very long process. Even the founding fathers themselves created a constitution which benefited themselves in the beginning but had ratified it as time went by for the benefits of their country and the
In similar fashion to the past, the legal system of China is still deeply flawed, people are routinely abused by the government, and those with different belief systems and philosophies are still being oppressed by the government. By clinging to these ideals, which are shown to have failed, as the Qin dynasty fell in an extremely short time, China is not only condemning its citizens to a life in which they are afraid of the government, it is condemning itself to a repetition of history, to the eventual rebellion of those who are tired of being oppressed. In order to ensure the success of both China as a country and its people, the government must begin to serve the interests of the people, rather than the interests of political
As shown, media censorship is a major aspect of Chinese government since it is forcing Legalist ethics to continue to remain prevalent in the country because the government does not wish to accept controversial opposing viewpoints, the nation does not want to undergo another period of chaos, and citizens are being punished for expressing “freedom of speech.” After this, it can be determined that China has always been based off of parts of Legalism. For instance, after the explosion in Tianjin, few citizens were accepting what the government was telling them due to previous incidents (Rauhala). Therefore, media censorship must have been existing for a long period of time if this issue has recurred multiple times. It can also be concluded that this issue will continue to remain prevalent in China ideologies because the government is different from Western countries, meaning there will always be opposition.
According to the lecture, piety is a term that refers to what it means to be good or holy in the eyes of the gods. In the reading, Euthyphro gives several different definitions of the term piety. The definition that stood out to me the most was the one in which Euthyrphro says, “…what is dear to the gods is pious, what is not is impious” (Euthyphro, 8). This seems like a simple definition. However, Socrates objects this definition on the grounds that the gods disagree among themselves as to what is 'pleasing'. Socrates said that Euthyphro had previously stated that “gods are in a state of discord…and that they are at enmity with each other” (Socrates, 8). Socrates also says: “Then according to your argument, my good Euthyphro, different gods consider different things to be just, beautiful, ugly, good, and bad, for they would not be at odds with one another unless they differed about these subjects would they?...They like what each of them considers beautiful, good, and just, and hate that opposite of these?” (Socrates, 9). Euthyphro agrees, proving that certain things disputed by the gods would be both pious and impious due to the fact that different gods consider different things to be holy. I believe Euthyphro’s self-contradiction shows that he does not know as much about piety as he claims.
According to Merrian-Webster dictionary, piety is defined as devotion to God. However, in the time before dictionaries, Plato challenges Euthyphro to give the word his own definition. The story of Euthyphro, which is a short dialogue between Socrates and Euthyphro himself, Socrates attempts to understand the concept of holiness. It all starts when Socrates was reporting to answer to the charges, of impiety (unholiness) and corrupting the youths, that had been brought against him. Euthyphro, on the other hand, was prosecuting his father for a murder case. Socrates was, therefore, concerned with the level of belief that Euthyphro had in himself, regarding holiness, to the extent of prosecuting his own father. During their conversation, Euthyphro comes up with several definitions of piety.
In the book chapter Culture, Power, and the Discourse of Filial Piety in Japan: The Disempowerment of Youth and Its Social Consequences, Hashimoto articulates well her critical point of view on what she calls “the piety ideology” and its social consequences of among Japan’s youth, giving many examples of youth’s disobedience and resistance against adults, especially parents. She argues that although the family law dissolved Ie system and implemented western ideal of nuclear family, which values equality, individual rights, freedom of choice, and voluntary unions had changed the children’s expectation for their relationship between their parents, the parents’ expectation for the filial piety (Oyakoko) has not changed. As she states the importance of obedience in Japanese family, she explains the details of how Japanese family, especially mother and teachers at school play an important role to create the filial child who understands the value of filial piety though the piety socialization and discourse.
Growth or Fixed Mindset In Carol Dweck’s article “The Perils of Praise and Promise” she explains the difference between a growth and fixed mind-set. Dweck says” In a fixed mind-set, students care first and foremost about how they will be judged; smart or not smart. Repeatedly students with this mind-set reject opportunities to learn if they might make mistakes.
Introduction Larry Spears, a follower of the servant leader guru Robert Greenleaf, developed a list of qualities of servant leadership. His list includes listening, empathy, healing, awareness, persuasion, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, commitment to the growth of people and building community (Dittmar, 2006). This paper will discuss the results of my interview with a few local acquaintances and their leadership style. Leader #1: Ms. Becky Walker Ms. Becky Walker is Associate Director of Ministries at Anderson University.
Another inappropriate objection to laws is tradition. Humans as a whole love the status quo. They don’t like variation or unexpected curveballs thrown into an otherwise routine agenda. They like things to stay similar from age 10 to age 100.
“Elder mistreatment refers to intentional actions that cause harm or create a serious risk of harm whether or not harm is intended to a vulnerable elder by a caregiver or other person who stands in a trust relationship to the elder, or failure by a caregiver to satisfy the elder’s basic needs or to protect the elder from harm” (Daly, J.M., Merchant, M.L., & Jogerst, G.J, 2016, p.1). “The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that the number of people aged over 60 will triple between 2000 and 2050” (Corbi, G.,Grattagliano, I., Ivshina, E., Ferrara, N., Solimeno-Cipriano, A., & Campobasso, C.P, 2015, p. 297). With this projection, elder mistreatment,
Over the last few weeks, leadership class has succeeded in getting me to think deeply about my life, who I really am and who I hope to be. This is good because it helps me put proper measures in place that will help me accomplish those goals.
