Human beings repress their freedom of choice, the right to determine one’s own action, by accepting restrictions over their free wills. However, the act of making a choice is the most important thing for a human being. Human beings can give meaning to their life through self-determination, the ability to make one’s own decision without the influence from outside. Most people believe that they have a freedom of choice but, in fact, their freedom is restricted by a myriad of factors. One of these factors is the restriction of people’s nature of freedom by cruel authorities through the idea of colonialism.
While on the outside this may seem logical, desiring security over freedom would in fact mean giving up control, which contradicts Dalrymple’s examples of what the prisoners say they want. Using this language detail of security over liberty to contradict his examples reveals his underlying point: that people still desire their liberty, but don’t want to take
The main idea of freedom is to be respectful and helpful to the community. Freedom is not endless. Freedom should be limited in some circumstances for the benefits of the community. You can't just do whatever you want just saying that “I have freedom.” We can’t kill people, do things illegally.
I understand that freedom is very important to humans because freedom give us the opportunity to do whatever we choose, but when it comes down to safety or freedom, safety is most important. Many people choose freedom over safety everyday and end up placing themselves in a position to end up in a dangerous situation. Many people have been through serious situations just because they felt like their freedom was more important than their safety, and I bet if they had another chance to think about the situation they would have went back and choose their safety over freedom. Safety is something you wish for not only yourself, but your family, friends, etc. There are many nefarious people in this world that do not care about others.
The law may sometimes be “inconsiderate” but it keeps us in order. We may sometimes say it is harsh but it is because we are used to be “free” in a way that we do not follow rules and order. These things happen to us because we are not led by a good public official. Even the officials do not follow the law because they think they are an exemption which is not. We cannot remove the law.
Respect should always be present as we practice freedom. We can choose what we want but we cannot choose our consequences of what we chose. Freedom must be with limits the same goes to boys and girls. Boys are free to do what they want but once that it harms other people, it is not right anymore. Furthermore, freedom is inevitable and is always present in
If we have respect for ourselves, then we would not let other people take advantage of us. Whenever we do not have respect for ourselves, we would not have confidence and love ourselves. Self-respect is when you know how you should be treated by other people and yourself, and you do not tolerate people who depreciate them. Nowadays, anyone who does not respect themselves has usually held themselves lower than their peers. They think that everyone is better than their self and they typically belittle themselves too.
As related earlier, catharsis aims to elicit pity and fear in order to purge such emotions from the audience. As such, the tragic hero’s punishment must not be considered entirely deserved otherwise it would be seen as justice and the cathartic effect would not take place. Instead, the punishment must be somewhat excessive so that pities the tragic hero for his misfortune as well as fears for their own lives after seeing the world is not always fair. However, in order to confirm that Oedipus’ punishment exceeds his crime, both must be identified. Oedipus’ crime is quite simply his attempt to escape his own fate.
They came up with contradicting conclusions about morality. One of it was their stand about moral rules in the way which different communities also govern its people in different ways. For me, an example of which is that (The way how ‘community X’ govern its people is way too different with the way how ‘community Y’ govern its peo-ple; therefore the way how ‘community X’ govern its people is not and will never be applicable in the ‘community Y’). Sophists also believe that moral rules are unnatural because the Sophists noticed that people only obey the moral rules for the fact that they can only be judged afterwards if they would not follow it. My example for this theory is that: (The government said that piracy is a crime and that people must not commit this mistake, meanwhile, some people doesn’t really want to obey it but because of the fact that they would be put into jail for this crime then they would come up with the decision to just follow the moral rule, morality in this sense is really unnatural.)
Choice is very important because without choice you could never have likings or perspectives, you would be forced into sameness and controlled. Diversity is needed in the Giver community because the way we look, the way we talk, and the way we do things make us a special individual. Feelings are also needed in the Giver community because if we had no feelings we would not care or love for anyone and we could not feel empathy for each other. These three things, feelings, choice, and diversity would make the Giver community a more positive
Yet, I do agree with the National service idea I do have A problem with violating someone 's free will to express their own rights and once if they do not choose to participate in this type of service or training even though it could benefit their country and themselves in the long run. Even though people that fall in this category have other options and forms of education that could be just as helpful to their country without participating in a national service. Not everyone is fit for this type of joint service for basic factors of maybe Low skill quality ,Anxiety, depression, or just any motional demand for that type of job could bring physical and mental stress to people that are pursuing that type of
It did molest Americans because it was seen as a way of “conducting their lives”. Conflicts up rise and made people feel obliged to ideas that weren’t their own. Where is the freedom in there? Reforms are just a group of people, who want their ideas to be heard and followed because they think is the best. That’s how some people felt bombarded with set ideals that does not go with their persona.
