I disagree with Hammurabi’s code because most laws were to cruel and targeted certain people. Although the code sculpted the culture in 1797 BC, the code would have no chance of surviving in any modern country to this day due to the harsh punishments received from breaking the laws. According to Hammurabi, he stated “...the strong might not inquire the weak, in order to protect the widows and orphans, I set up these my precious words...etc” (Doc B). Although I do not agree with Hammurabi’s code, I do believe that he was trying to create and maintain a healthy and safe environment for his people by trying to prevent crime with such a harsh set of laws. However, the consequences for not abiding these laws were too harsh.
He chose to stay because Elie would have been separated from his parents and little sister. This choice had a negative impact, but also a positive one. The negative side is that Elie’s family stayed in the ghettos, and then the concentration camps. At the time, no one could believe the rumors about the Nazis. For this reason the Elie wouldn’t have known about the extreme horror that was lying ahead for his entire family.
Mccandless sense of self confidence while trying to find his identity helped him to progress in life, but was also his greatest downfall; Into the Wild demonstrates self confidence as not an unacceptable trait to have, but the significance of the negative or positive effects it can possess.

Throughout this book Mccandless expresses his hate towards his parents. When he was old enough to realize that his dad had cheated on his mom this particular aspect changed him. He wanted nothing to do with his parents.

Many people would think it was absurd that Chris left his family and threw his life away, and they would think that he was not justified in leaving society, however, Chris McCandless was justified in leaving society because by doing so he could achieve non-conformity and self-reliance without being oppressed.

This is a logical response to this sort of prophecy. Oedipus thought that he was using his free will to decide to flee so that his prophecy wouldn’t come true, however, he actually wasn’t. Given the information that he had, he believed that Polybus and Merope were his real parents. This led him to his decision to run away If he had known that they were not his real parents he might have chosen to stay with them and, therefore, not fulfil the prophecy. He would have never chosen to stay based on the information he had because he thought that Polybus and Merope were his real parents.
As individuals we have different opinions and beliefs, and would handle situations differently however, I still stand on what I believe would be wrong in this situation. Mr. Lasken does have rights and choices he can make when it comes to ending his life. There are other options to consider, and should be done. Dr. Brody job is to provide all options possible, keep patients comfortable and alieve during an terminal illness, and death in this situation can be prevented in this
Later on, more orphans were found and, searching for the feeling of accomplishment felt when his First was found, Hook sheltered all the ones who needed him the most.

He was exploring the woods and found a group of kids

‘It’ll be cleaner, and there’ll be more stahls to hide in.’” (70) To cause a scene they clap their hands to represent clappers. (Clappers are people who blow things up by just clapping their hands.) In summation, this society was made for a good reason but wasn’t understood that way by everyone. Connor was never meaning to cause so much destruction. He was trying to avoid this society because it’s not what he wanted.
Mill is correct to say that everyone should have the right to their own choices, regardless of how it may affect themselves. So long as it does not determent the legal obligations one has for others, an activity such as choosing one’s own course of death would not have a direct effect on those around them. In addition, the entirety of having a criminal prohibition on physician assisted deaths is unlawful under the Charter. It is far more inhumane to allow one to be put through pain and agony rather than the peaceful and painless death through other methods. This prohibition essentially tells others how to live the end scope of their lives, which takes away that individual’s right to their own life without any interference from the state.

Osewoudt’s uncle called him a coward because he believed it was his responsibility to protect his wife and mother, and instead, he just selfishly decided to look after himself(112). I don’t classify Osewoudt’s as a hero and despite the actions he took for Dorbeck, I don’t believe he is fully a traitor. He possibly might’ve been a traitor to his family according to his
He worked hard to help others, and because of that, they would work hard to help him.
