As a result, in his new community, I don’t think he would include any of the rules of the city. First, Prometheus always broke the laws of the city. These rules of the city existed in order to make sure that everyone treated each other equally. They were forced to not have a problem with anyone. These rules showed collectivism in a unpleasant way which revealed that there was no individualism.
Both Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau discuss the role of the individual in great lengths. In Emerson’s Self Reliance he expresses his frustration with the general population’s unwillingness to fulfill the duties of the individual. Emerson believes that everyone has innovative thoughts and ideas, but only true revolutionaries have the courage to share them with the world. In Thoreau’s Resistance to Civil Government he focuses on the rights of the individual as part of the State, or government. He believes that it is the people’s duty to disobey the laws if they are unjust.
The Wrong Doings and its Effects upon the Government The Government is not at all how it is thought out to be. The federal government or also known as “The Brotherhood” was established to protect those who are their citizen, but truly what are their morals of protection.

Creon enacted a law that he felt was just however, he did not listen to Antigone when she was explaining why she had broken that law. If Creon would have listened to Antigone and taken into consideration the reasons for her unlawful actions, he would have saved himself and his nation from the wrath of the
Atticus is saying that the reason why they can’t be in the jury is because they need to ‘protect them’ and that they just slow down the entire trial process. Even though the only difference between a man and a woman is a single chromosome and organs, they can’t be on a jury just because they are considered not ready or safe enough to judge a
In the world we live in, equality has always been a foreign concept. On an everyday basis, people are being assessed on things that make them distinctive or unique, and there is no such thing as two people being equal. There has never been a time in history where people came together as one immense community. We have always and will continue to be broken up into groups based on the gender stated on our birth certificates, the color of our skin, the religion we practice, and countless different factors. One of the most evident factors of inequality is demonstrated through racism based on the color of one's skin.
