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.
According to Will Cartwright’s “Killing and letting die: a defensible distinction”, ‘we have duties not to harm others which require restraint from us and may therefore be designed as negative duties. We have duties to help others which require intervention from us and may therefore be designed as positive duties. These duties are different in both scope and force.’ Our negative duty, which is not killing is owed to all others since we are capable to avoid it. However, to consider our positive duty, it is not possible for us to offer assistance to everyone in need and stop all the people from dying. So this duty is hard to fulfill as it is circumscribed and selective.
Therefore, I agree with the decision. If the truth come out I don’t believe Boo would have gone to jail , due to self defense and protecting the children. However, I still agree that omitting the truth in this situation is what needed to happen. Boo needed the protection, he could not survive the judgement of the people and the trial.
These justifications, according to the article include the denial of injury. This mean that they accept the responsibility of the act but argue that it is acceptable because no one is injured. This has been proven false by countless amounts of data and studies regarding the same topic. Some people involved in this act have directly come out and stated that it may in fact cause harm to the child because there is simply no way around the truth. Another justification is the condemnation of the condemners or rejecting those who reject them.
If he had chosen to confess, in the process lying and compromising his morals, the audience would not really have blamed him. In our day and age, the trend is still towards following the majority. We often stifle our own conscience so that we are not ourselves condemned, and though we applaud those who uphold it, we usually do not have the strength of character to do so ourselves. Proctor's death becomes a moral exclamation point, and it would have a profound effect on modern audiences. The Crucible has much to offer an audience in 2014.
The twins do what others tell them to because they think there will be consequences if they don’t. As a result, the twins are very obedient. This also means that Sam and Eric are at the center of a lot of conflict because they do what they are told. If they do something that someone else does not like, for example when Ralph is upset that they let the fire out, it will be sure to cause strife. “Ralph spoke.
As humans, we tend to justify our actions in order to find comfort or peace with ourselves. Some individuals justify their lies by saying things such; I did not wanted to hurt my friend or family, everyone else is doing it or I had no choice. In reality, these are not valid excuses for lying, eventually we are going to end up hurting them. There are situations in life when for me it is easer to lie instead of saying the true, but there is always a sour taste in my mouth after lying to someone I love regardless of the reason.
There are rules they must follow and if they break a rule then they get released and trust me, to be released is a bad thing. One of the main things are that they can’t lie, but I think everyone should lie occasionally, so they can protect themselves and sometimes lying is important, it just depends on the situation. In the community it isn’t a safer place to be than reality, because when everyone is the same they can’t be who they want to be. Also, you can’t feel pain but feeling pain is a good thing because if you can’t feel pain then you’re not real, well that’s what I believe. Feeling emotions are amazing and why would anyone want to take that away?
Mistakes are universal, but everyone responds to being incorrect in different ways. The way that people choose to deal with their mistakes defines their integrity. The popular opinion is that apologizing makes up for the inaccuracy, but conversely, I believe that apologizing does not simply make a person ‘good’. A strong person is someone who proves that they intend not to make the same mistake again. An apology loses it’s meaning after it is repeated over and over.
There’s also this bugging question: Do they feel sorry for me? If anyone’s pity comes with an enclosed check, I probably need all the pity in the world. Kidding aside, we’re telling how things are because it’s the truth, not because we advocate our lives as sob stories. Do, in some way, single parents disrespect the sacredness of family as the basic unit of society? My life didn’t turn out as I would have wanted it to, but I know that I am where I need to be.
As James Baldwin said, “It is true that two wrongs don 't make a right, as we love to point out to the people we have wronged. But one wrong doesn 't make a right, either. People who have been wronged will attempt to right the wrong; they would not be people if they
If people didn’t get bothered than they would be happy and not know what to expect, because if no one in the entire world got bothered they wouldn 't have the knowing of how to be an actual human. In the book Fahrenheit 451 I am pretty sure that all the characters got bothered so when something happened they were use to it and didn’t get that worked up over it. So when Millie left Montag he was sad but later found out that he did not want anything to do with her. Therefore if people do get bothered they will so figure out what they don 't need and why the thing that happened is a good thing, that no one can change. You just have to keep living you life and see things on the positive side.
Barret, upon doing her research about Ison and his situation can see that Hobart was doing the right thing, but did it in the wrong way. Yes, Hobart is outspoken about what he believes and his pride, but murdering someone is not how he could have shown it. It is important to tell this story and show people the lives of those living in Northern Kentucky. They are not poor, ignorant hillbilly. Barret saw it necessary to show that they are capable of handling themselves and do not need the extra help as they are strong enough to take care of themselves.
“The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority is a person’s conscience” (Lee 57). Many people will silence their opinions because they are not conventional. However, if nobody spoke up in situations about things like acts of racism, the world would be even more abhorrent than it already is. Everybody has opinions and those ideas should be recognized in a tasteful way, free of hatred and bitterness. A fallout between friends or a small possibility of something does not mean that one must give up or end a bond.
Understanding the character, Chillingworth, depends on what person is interpreting him. If a certain person grew up knowing betrayal in their life, they might sympathize and affiliate themselves with Chillingworth. Others on the other hand may find it generally problematic to understand Chillingworth. He has had a lack of appreciation and does not deserve the hostility that is given towards him. Chillingworth’s transgression was only tormenting Dimmesdale’s wrongdoing and keeping him alive to do so.
