In Eugene V. Debs’ speech, he asserts that nurturing his fellow man is a moral obligation because he would be overcome by guilt if he ignored suffering. The fault in his argument lies in the concept of universal obligation caused by guilt. A sense of ethical duty is shaped by personal experiences, so an altruistic inclination is not a universal value. Because moral obligation changes from person to person based on their personal experiences and values, self-sacrifice is not a universal trait. Some groups feel as though sacrificing one’s own priorities for the less fortunate is negligent, to one’s family, self, or society.
Anyone can search up a name and find out about another person, making information readily accessible. Social media has a huge effect on people like Monica Lewinsky. After her secret went public, news got around in hours, minutes, seconds, flying from one person's phone to another. Her story was on the cover page of websites like yahoo, CNN, and NBC news within hours of publication. Monica Lewinsky said “It was the first time the traditional news was usurped by the internet for a major news story, a click that reverberated around the world.”
In Ayn Rand 's Anthem, the government is controlling society which started out with good intentions of equality but slowly became controlling by the suppression of human spirit, and the future societies stemming for this one will allow freedoms that they were previously denied. The original government wanted to prevent the violence present in the Unmentionable Times, so they turned to equality but, really, that became oppression because the human spirit cannot be willingly subjugated. Human beings are naturally curious. They crave to understand things that are unknown to them.
In Fromm 's essay "Disobedience as a Psychological and Moral Problem" he talks about the reason why people are obedient. Fromm states that they are obedient because most people do not have enough courage to be alone. Whey they are obedient, it makes them feel secure because they are accepted by society. On the other hand, disobedience is not accepted by society, so if people disobey, they become an outsider. For instance, if a person is raised to think that stealing is wrong, they have also witnessed how others who do steal are treated by society.
Here, Jekyll is stating that he represses his private desires so much and wants the irregularities in life so badly that he finally faces a challenge, whether to keep his private figure hidden or to reveal it to society and subsequently be judged by society. He now has to make a life changing decision, if he continues to enjoy his pleasures secretly, he will have it on his conscience daily and be tormented by the guilt; if he confesses them, he will no longer have the guilt on his conscience, but he will also be judge harshly by society. Mary Shelly also uses her protagonist, Victor Frankenstein, in way that empsizes

Instances of police brutality has gone back as far as law enforcement officers having been established, and in todays time media coverage and police shootings have raised major questions over the choices made by law enforcement.

Sex work has garnered a large amount of attention and debate because it touches the core of our beliefs about morality, gender, and human rights. Changes in technology in recent decades have enabled young women to easily participate in the growing and diverse online market for sex work, particularly webcam modeling. Through this medium, women can make a living by displaying their sexuality on the internet in a fashion similar to an online peepshow. According to Jones (2015), although there is no scholarly documentation of the current size or profitability of this industry, a simple Google search for a list of webcam modeling sites yields over six million results, an indication that it is clearly a large industry. Until recently, there has been

Civil disobedience is a way for people to express themselves on issues that are problematic to society in a peaceful matter. In developed countries like the United States, people have the freedom and a right to be civil disobedience and do so for a better change. Some may see it as a disrespectful way to disrupt the peace and in many communities. It is a dispute between it being right or wrong. Some feel like the power is being taken away from them and they need to do something about it but not cause a scene or disrupt anyone in any way, I believe people have the right to do this because I don't see the problem in someone speaking up something wrong.
Virtuous Disobedience In 1891, Irish author Oscar Wilde made a claim that portrayed disobedience as a valuable human trait that can also promote social progress. I agree with Oscar Wilde in the idea that disobedience is a virtuous quality when it is employed in a nonviolent matter. When mixed with the social poison that is violence, however, disobedience only serves to galvanize more individuals against the cause that is being fought for. When done without the use of violence, disobedience is a highly effective tool for bringing about progressive change to the society around us.
