Fault and redemption. What do these two words really do in our lives? Do they give us another chance or are they just concepts that we want to follow? In the world we live in, one fault can often make or break something in our lives, but when granted with redemption, we don’t always take it as seriously as needed and soon our fault becomes someone else’s pride. Sir Gawain’s faults can be a constant reminder of the mistakes we all make as humans along with the quote, “It is clear then that there can be no redemption without fault, just as one is unable to return from exile without first being sent into one.
Many people believe that the First Amendment gives the people right to say whatever they want but it’s not true. There is no hate speech exception to First Amendment. There are some kind of words which are not protected especially the fighting or insulting words or speech in which a person threatens to commit a crime that would result in death, serious injury, or damage is not protected by the First Amendment, instead First Amendment gives the right to fight against injustice, inequality and unfairness. For example Black Lives Matter movement, this movement has every right to express their feelings. The ways they are protesting are protected under the First Amendment.
In the test “Texas vs. Johnson” states that “the way to preserve the flags special role is not to punish those who feel differently about these matter it’s to persuade them that they are wrong lines 37-39.” This reveals that everyone has a totally different way of showing that they are wrong and it’s not always by punishing them. Furthermore, in the text “America flag stand for tolerance “states in lines 64-67 “more than anything else the flag stands for free expression of ideas no matter how distasteful.” This means that the people can express whatever expression they are feeling and won’t be punished for it, no matter how distasteful. People opinions should matter no matter if they are not the
It violates individual liberties. Freedom of choice is a right that many Americans firmly stand up for. By taking away this liberty, citizens can feel resentment towards the governmnet and even towards the armed forces. 2.It can cause civil unrest. It won't be just those who are forced to enlist who will harbor negative opinions about the government and military.
Flag protection, or making it a federal crime to deface the American flag, is the very definition of hypocrisy. It is by no means acceptable to deface the flag – in the same way it would be unacceptable to call other people names or insult religions – but freedom of speech must extend to the freedom to offend others, lest it no longer be freedom of speech, but only freedom to speak what the government wants to be spoken. This may start with a protection of the flag, but it will eventually result in a society of censorship. If the government is able to censor what is thought, spoken, or believed, then we are no better than countries who censor everything, and the experiment of America – that a society can be formed based on equal freedom for all – has failed.
When committing an act in Bad Faith one always has freedom to choose something else. However, in Bad Faith, one keeps these alternate possibilities out of mind in order to avoid the realization that we are more free than we say we are (Sartre: On Bad Faith, Youtube video). While Bad Faith is not literally lying to yourself but rather the act of subconsciously suspending freedom of choice. Ultimately, Bad Faith feels right because it lets one off the hook for making tough decisions and taking responsibility for one’s life. Living in Bad Faith is inauthentic and self-deceiving, for that reason it must be avoided to live a meaningful
Jason Iloulian Professor Farley Second Paper Nov 10th – 2015 Do Socrates and Voltaire have the same view of the relation between reason and religion? For the most part, one can sufficiently argue that both Socrates and Voltaire have the same view of the relation between reason and religion. Such a view is best summarized as the notion that religion is within the bounds of reason. As such, each philosopher believes that religion—including its creeds and tenets—are subject to reason and to inquisitions that are based on reason. Moreover, these philosophers also subscribe to the notion that religion should not influence various areas of religion, such as government, unless it can do so in a way that is reasonable.
No, but maybe there should be a penalty for endangering the public and insulting our American way of life. The flag is a symbol of freedom and hope, not something that should be desecrated
‘Idea of difference’ and the concept of being ‘stereotyped’ are two drastically different notions. The nature of the former is either positive or at least more positive than the latter, which is absurdly negative. Idea of difference comes with accepting of and appreciation for disparities or uniqueness. It is about mutual respect. On the other hand, stereotyping has a negative slur with a tone of disrespect born out of ignorance, insecurity and/or rigidness in the mentality to accept diversity.
But If at times we feel like we have run out of love and/or happiness and someone comes along and offers us just a bit we reach out to snatch it up. We reach for all that we can get even if it comes at a high price. So often we begin bad relationships just because we feel we are lacking love and happiness and we want so badly for someone to share just a bit of theirs with us. As hard as it may seem at times what we really need is to accept ourselves and be happy with who we are. Then we will never need another being to make us feel that way.
