If legitimacy is lost, it could lead to chaotic conditions because when people start to doubt the government, uprising and rebellion could be the very results to this. If certain groups vote in greater numbers than other groups, there could be a gap as to the privileged-citizens and the unrepresented most especially in influencing law makers making governmental policies. He also mentions that the biggest advantage of compulsory voting is that if there’s an enhancement in the voter turnout, bias against the less-privileged citizens is removed and that participation is equalized. Much more, vote buying is alleviated if there’s compulsory voting because the electorates are left with no choice but to
There are issues with the equality of the system, as depending on the income of the accused their experiences will be completely different. The Pyrrhic defeat theory tries to explain this broken system as the consequences of those in power seeking a scapegoat the poor, and to escape responsibility of their own criminalities. The issue is perception; there have been such negative connotations of being poor that poverty and criminality have become interchangeable. Those with power have the narrative to keep this simplified view of criminality alive having their own success over the failure of others, The Pyrrhic theory is worrisome, because acknowledging it means fighting years of false narrative and realize how useless our criminal justice system really
Bipartisanship is crucial to passing effective legislation. When both party disagree with each other gridlock occurs. This gridlock forces both sides to stonewall the other to get a bill passed that is lopped sided favoring one party over the other. Bipartisanship allows all voices to be heard which creates a bill that congress can pass that represents the greater good of the country rather than one party’s constituency. With bipartisanship congress works smoother and is favored by the country with positive rating.
There are bountiful acts of cruel abuse that cannot be exposed and combated, but there could be hope within Michael’s case. The editor believes, “A case like Michael Fay’s is important because it provides a chance to challenge an inhumane practice that out to not exist anywhere” (TNYT 179). Michael Fay’s case can influence a propagation to end the savage punishment of caning. Traditions can be modified; change is how we make the world a better place. As the editorial states, “At times like this, Americans need to remember that this country was also founded by dissidents--by people who were misfits in their own society because they believed, among other things, that it was wrong to punish pilferage with hanging or crimes of any sort with torture” (TNYT 179).
This transgression exist because if there was superiority in this society the old ways the Councils and the elders strayed away from would try to overpower again. This would mean a possible dictatorship and over arrogance in the society. Equality strived to be different and his own person and with that, I believe he will omit this sin in his
This signifies that people weighed down by handicaps recognize that should they wish to establish themselves at the top of society’s hierarchy all they had to do was remove their handicaps, like Harrison. This would result in their intellectual and physical superiority to others—in other words they would gain the potential to rule the world. Nevertheless, despite their full realization of what is happening in their society, no one objects to the system of oppression. In fact, it is the heavily handicapped George, not Hazel, who points out the importance of the handicapping system. He says “If I tried to get away with it, then other people’d get away with it-and pretty soon we’d be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else.
Everyone conforms in society at some point. John F. Kennedy claimed, “Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.” When it comes to the topic of conformity, most of us will readily agree that individuality changes the world. Where this agreement usually ends, however, is on the question of is conformity that bad? While some are convinced that conformity is great for the world, others believe that conformity is the death of us. I tend to fall on the side where conformity is the death of us, because without individuality we would not have a great deal of the advances in technology.
You should also be responsible for being a good person. This isn 't just some off the wall concept either as Samuel Adams said, “A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.” The people of America realized long ago ago honest, honorable, just, truthful society with a love for industry and Godliness and a respect for the law will prosper. If the people are no good than no matter how good a leader, or how well the constitution is written, or how fortuitous we are, our nation is
You may think that by “starting over” in a society is going to make it perfect. But in Fahrenheit 451, it proves that theory wrong and ends up to be a bigger problem than it was before. It teaches everybody a lesson of not trying to avoiding different opinions and sadness. Fahrenheit 451 is suppose to be a Utopian society by trying to eliminating all emotions and books until one person finally speaks up about their feelings on the laws. While their society looks vastly different on the surface from our society but once you look deeper into the story, the different societies have many similarities.
