Thoreau had excellent ideas; however, his ideas are radical to both his time period and today. Disobeying the law is frowned upon by most societies, but some people are similar to Thoreau and deem that there is nothing wrong with forms of peaceful protest. While it is important that every individual follow his or her own conscience, it can only be obeyed completely freely to a certain point. One’s conscience might tell them that they should not pay their taxes, when another’s does not; this is why laws are established. If one does not abide by a law, there are consequences because they followed their conscience.
This law allows police and officers to stop blameless people and frisk them. This law usually targets youth and people of color and this is extremly important reasons to stop it. A first example that shows that the law is not legal is that tons of people who get stopped are innocent. The second example that shows the illegality of the law would be that it is a discriminatory and racist law. However, other people have different opinions, other people think that "stop and frisk" help protects people from people that look suspicious and may risk the safety our society.
Another point that needs to accounted for, is how Satan tells people that going to the flow is the right thing. Not always going with the flow helps a person. Sometime people tend to go with the wrong flow and end up away from God. Lastly and most importantly, people tend to now be exceedingly worldly. People are more open to wrong, sinful behaviors and accepting them in their lives.
Instead of holding the traits of honesty, trustworthiness and leniency, Machiavelli told one make it only look as though did instead, and when the time came, they could be corrupt, sly and merciless. “It is good to appear clement [merciful] (sic), trustworthy, humane, religious, and honest, and also to be so, but always with the mind so disposed that, when the occasion arises not to be so, you can become the opposite...he must see to all who see and hear him a model of piety, loyalty, integrity, humanity, and religion.” (Machiavelli, ❡6-7). To give false sincerity to someone, it ruins the ideal image of that person when discovered they are not as they seem. As a leader, the population one had loyalty from could be reversed. The power that one had worked hard to acquire would fall from their grasp, and they would be portrayed as a liar and a disgrace to society after the discovery of their dishonesty to the people they
Pascoe claims that “masculinizing discourses and practices extend beyond male bodies,” and that the fluid practices, rituals, and discourses that make up masculinity can be enacted by and affect males and females, and a multiplicity of institutions (9). Masculinity and compulsive heterosexuality are immutably linked, creating a reciprocal situation in which boys will assert their masculinity to prove their heterosexual and dominant identity, as well as prove their heterosexual dominance in order to affirm their

Prove that physical punishment is not the way to motivating your child into doing the right thing. (source used) D. Concluding Sentence: Therefore, it is obvious that physical punishment is still being used by parents widely, yet this idea can be easily opposed due to the physical harm that the child is exposed to and how this creates children’s fear from their parents rather than loving them.
It also helps those who are afraid to speak out on hate crime or who have no opinionated voice be strong. Legislation allows for certain people to be protected under the law from hate crimes against them regardless of a prejudice. However, the disagreement against this is that if the government focuses too much on those who are afraid and defenseless, than those who wish to banish them have an easier time to criticize them because the government is so focused on making them an example of someone to protect. In effect, this makes them just as vulnerable for the focus being directed
It determines how people look at themselves, how we look at each other and how our society looks at numerous things around us. Sexuality holds a certain type of power over our society. Yet and still it is considered inappropriate and shameful to discuss or partake in sexual activity openly. This being the case brings to question why it’s inappropriate and shameful. Creating curiosity which then increases the search
One reason survivors should not feel guilty is because survivor's guilt is illogical the survivors did not cause this tragedy. In the text “The Moral Logic” by Nancy Sherman, is about traumatic events that happened to individuals who believe it's their faults for what happened. In the text it says, “But as Bone Berger's remarks make clear, we often take responsibility in a way that goes beyond what we can reasonably be held for.”(page 154) People can take responsibilities for something that wasn’t their fault and they will soon believe it was. After everything else survivors have been through now they have to feel guilty which is unfair. Another reason that survivors of life and death situations shouldn’t feel guilty is because it keeps people
What Lennie did showed the had was courageous. He knew what he was doing was wrong, but had to stand up for himself because he was hurt. In today's society people could be very judgemental of a person having a mental disability. What Lennie did was to prove that people shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Anyone could show courageous no matter how different people are from one another.
People are going to have their opinions and they are going to stick with them also anyone on their side due to the fact that everyone is prejudice in some points of their lives. It would be nice if we weren’t prejudice but we are, the only way to stop prejudice would to stop all competition. We all just need to love and respect each other and put the differences aside, if we can do that then there will be an improvement in prejudice but we still will not be able to abolish prejudice. As we saw in the study the kids were prejudice and doing anything to stop whoever was in their way of getting the prize we can compare this to our own lives and experiences because we see everyday people being prejudice over stupid things, there is no way of avoiding
He wants the people to notice and realize injustice the law is. However, there is nothing wrong with fighting against something that feels unjust, but fighting sometimes may lead to destruction within the public. The law shouldn’t be based off of just the people’s opinions but also what the government think is best. It’s acceptable to do what is right but many are afraid to stand up to the the government due to the fact that they have more power. Therefore, people may see going against an unjust law as something to avoid because of the aftereffect they will be having to face.
As Dr. King stated individuals may see the moral light and voluntarily give up their unjust posture; but as, rein hold Niebuhr has reminded us, group tend to be more immoral then individuals. In other words those who see the un-peaceful situation hold their tongue when with a group and the tension of the group restricts the one individual to not speak
