Hammurabi’s code interfered with others lives, prevented protection of the weak and created fear among the people. To begin with, Hammurabi’s code of law was unjust because it interfered with others lives. A mesopotamian man was allowed to disown his son whenever he pleased. Also, If the son hits his father, his hands will be cut off (Document C). It is unjust because Hammurabi did not consider the consequences that came with the law.
The society in this book seemed to be the type that followed the rules or if you didn’t the worst things were going to happen to you.

In addition, Atticus went against his moral code and principles he had always upheld before, especially in the Tom Robinson trial. Now, Atticus is faced with the decision of abiding by the law or breaking it in order to do the right thing. He knew that incarcerating a man, as withdrawn and solitary as Arthur would have been unforgivable. Especially, after Arthur had performed a great deed by saving his children 's life. He knew that exposing him would be an awful way of repaying him; it would have been like "shooting a mockingbird."

People don’t try the gang route when they know it could be death waiting for them right around the corner. Maybe I don’t know what I’m talking about but I know for fact the people in those gangs would betray you in a matter of seconds, and you be in a grave, or a jail cell because you wanted to be a “savage.”
I knew if I denied it’ll get worse, meaning he would get angry at me and would most likely skipped over the pharmacy and go straight to buying his toxic crap. I had to agreed but as I kept agreeing I knew stuff won’t get better. When we finally
Much like in today’s society, its a sad commentary to explain how people’s choices to survive devolve into violence and murder. When there is no order, chaos reigns. And in society when riots occur, people ignore what is right from wrong and believe they can get away with stealing and hurting others since they outnumber the police. Without law and order, the boys on the island were forced to live in a reality without adults and authority and had to think and survive for themselves. In Lord of the Flies savagery is shown many times throughout the book, most of the savage acts that take place in the novel are very similar to the way they would unfold in modern society under proper circumstances.
Peace cannot exist when war is a threat. In 1984, people feel endangered by bombs and Eurasian soldiers, when the actual danger is the Party. It is true that war may encourage nationalism in a country and also unite people but it stimulates more chaos and agony than union. "Freedom is slavery" also acts as an unconscious disheartenment for anyone who might contemplate seeking freedom. “freedom is slavery” is saying that people who follow their will is not free, because they are not protected from their own unsuccessfulness they get from bad decisions.
The Unit command could not allow one of its own to just leave. This would create moral problems, this war was unpopular, to allow one of their own to troll the streets back in America without the standard debrief would only court certain disaster. The solution turned out to be simple. Send one of their own to “chase” and apprehend Greeley.
Law 21 clearly states that if a thief has stolen property, he shall be put to death and hanged at the scene(Doc D). While others may say this is fair and that he deserves it, this law does not demarcate between official documents or a toy. Many of our youth have played harmless tricks on their peers and if they 're caught, even if it’s a dare, they shall die a painful and torturous death. This removes one man from society and it lowers the moral of the city and in turn, Babylonian, crippling it.
In the Crito, Socrates and his long-time friend Crito discuss the complex question of whether or not Socrates should escape from jail due to his impending execution. Their argument questions whether citizens should always follow the law. They originally have different opinions and reasoning, but Crito eventually comes to agree with Socrates. Both Socrates and Crito express many valid points on the subject.
Michelle DeLude Contrast the views of Plato in Crito and Martin Luther King, Jr. in “A letter From a Birmingham Jail” on law whether one may permissibly disobey an unjust law or an unjust use of a just law. Explain both positions and evaluate, giving reason, which view you think presents the better argument. To have a political obligation is to have a moral duty to obey the laws of one’s State or Country. Political activists and Philosophers alike have struggled to evaluate the conditions under which people are morally entitled to disobey the law or an unjust use of a just law.
Position Paper #1: For Socrates’ Argument of Tacit Agreement In The Crito Socrates uses two metaphors to justify his reason for staying in jail and dying instead of leaving Athens and starting a new life in another town. The metaphor he uses that most justifies his reasoning is the argument of tacit agreement, that he agreed to the laws and regulation of Athens when he decided to live there. Socrates knew that living in he agreed to follow all rules that the city had.
