Finally he puts Cordelia’s love above anything else to such a point that he would rather live in prison with her than rule as a king again. From this we feel sympathy as we can see the endeavor to change which earns respect from others. On the other hand we have Holden Caulfield. I don’t think Holden does learn from his mistakes as he is oblivious to what others believe and his maturity doesn’t allow him to see past this. I think this as towards the end he says he will apply himself at his new school, but he isn’t sure.This shows me that he hasn’t learnt from his mistakes.
If Singer had presented this stance, his argument would be stronger for he would be acknowledging both sides of the situation and seeking a solution that would accommodate everyone. Sending the $200 or supporting an organization are great ways to help but telling people to not to go out and buy a new television set even though they worked for it may not sit well with many. In this article, Peter Singer examines the moral conscious of mankind, especially Americans, by viewing their habits. In order to do so, he employs the use of short stories to illustrate human tendencies. Although solid, his stance is flawed because he does not acknowledge humans right to enjoy the fruits of their labor.
There should be no relative poverty in our society because everyone has the same. This principle “judges the distribution based on the relative holdings of individuals” (Von Platz, 7). Egalitarians are driven by a “sense of fairness,” in society and by using comparative egalitarianism, you can see what is fair (Temkin, 157). This is the only principle that can distinctly say based off of the graphs provided that our society in America is unjust because there is a larger amount of inequality in income and in wealth. The principle of egalitarianism states that everyone should have the same of everything, so that there should be no income inequality in the United States and no wealth
I enjoyed listening to others and helping them through difficult times. Pursuing a career in social work will allow me to broaden my skills and support the underprivileged in the community. Social work is the platform that will allow me to improve the lives of others and transform their futures. Social work means supporting my community and discovering ways to educate and give resources to those that are in need. I believe my strengths include patience during a stressful situation, organization when trying to remain balanced, and empathy while helping someone through a difficult time.
He is the despicable character of racism. Jim is different than Pap in this way by being for the most part, very respectful to the whites. Another difference is that Pap for the most part does not care much about Huck. He abandons Huck and comes back only when he hears about all the money Huck owns. Pap is so concerned that Huck was not to be better than himself or other family members, that he forbids Huck from continuing to go to school.
The word is ambiguous to everyone in society. Many view charity as giving back to those in need because they feel as though they are “bettering the community” in one small way. However, those receiving can see it as pity or shameful action. We see this throughout The Grapes of Wrath as well, the receiving end of the generosity is interpreted differently than those giving out. In today’s society, it’s programmed into us that if you don’t partake in charitable actions, you aren’t considered a “good samaritan.” If you aren’t helping, what are you doing?
This system of oppression gave power and control those in the dominant group and allowed the inequality to persist. In today’s social work profession, it is constantly addressed that social workers should be prepared to work with any population in the community. Social workers are taught to be sensitive and aware of their power. By doing so, better client-worker relationships are build and better service results are achieved. Social workers are taught to be aware of their power, so that they are not controlling the client 's decision, but rather teaching them how to make their own decisions.
Sometime people care about social values than their individuality. Our society values community belonging to a certain group that defined them, not caring about the people who can’t fit in. “Punctured, uttered, deflated he dropped into a chair and covering his face began to weep” (Huxley 176). Bernard alway felt different than the rest, like a reject in the eye of the world. That change when he show John, the Director son to the people of the Brave New World, he felt acceptance which validate his existence in his eyes.
In addition, people who live in the valley of ashes show “transcendent effort” stressing that hard work does not pay off; the American Dream is a deception. Furthermore, when people start to finally understand Gatsby, Fitzgerald writes, “But I can still read the grey names and they will give you a better impression than my generalities of those who accepted Gatsby’s hospitality and paid him the subtle tribute of knowing nothing whatever about him (Chapter 4, 61). The words “grey names” specifically indicate people from the valley of ashes. These people have lost hope in achieving the goal they yearned to obtain. Following up, the people that went to Gatsby’s parties knew “nothing whatever about him”.
