Huxley would view humans as selfish due to their incapability to sacrifice anything for anyone else except themselves. To gain the perfect society in Brave New World, have to sacrifice freedoms to gain stability for their community as a whole. Likewise, the strength of the nation was based on the overall agreements of the citizens living in it, and the World State has achieved it. The controllers created things such as soma and feelies if anything ever went wrong with a certain individual. This could be becoming aware of how they were being manipulated, refusing to take the required medicine, or starting to form their own ideas about how the community should be run.
I shall never let criminals excel good men in honor.” (236- 244) In this quote we can see that Creon is deliberately going against divine law for the sole purpose of trying to drive Thebes away from the destruction of the war and helping it thrive, making it steady. He is mostly trying so hard to prove his position in society because he has just become king, and he needs people to respect his authority as well as obey it. He claims in Pg.50 that “It’s my job to rule this land. There is no one else.”(885-886) This shows that not only is Creon committed to right the state but to also be the only one to accomplish it, seeing as how he is king. Antigone's second motivation, and perhaps one we can most relate to, is her devotion to her family.
The Buddhist religion values extreme selflessness While the Hindu belief focuses on dharma and the balance of the cosmic universe. Siddhartha Gautama’s life was very different from the Hindu myths like the Ramayana and the story of Krishna. SG grew up in a perfect kingdom without any need or want unfulfilled while the Pandava brothers and Rama had to suffer through exile and war. Many of these differences in values and contexts of stories are what makes up the change in culture in Asia of over 1500 years. SG comes to an understanding that life is suffering or “dukkha” while observing life around the kingdom.
1. What is essential to the “preservation of liberty?” How should this “be so constituted?” The powers of government must be separated in order to preserve liberty To do this, the members of one branch should have little to no power over the selection of members of another branch This separation of powers ensures that no one branch gains control of the other two branches The people should have control and elect who fills most offices 2. Explain the following: “A dependence upon the people is, no doubt, the primary control on the government; but experience has taught mankind the necessity of auxiliary precautions.” Man has the tendency to put his ambitions first and be greedy The government is made up of man; therefore there must be Constitutional safeguards restricting the actions of powerful government
God fearing- It has been found that the people of north Indians are very superstitious regarding their culture and have a fear in their regarding various laws which use to exist 1000 of years ago and try to follow each one of it till date. 3.

Guest respect- Guest is treated to be god in our culture and make our test effort in order to make him comfortable at the time he/she visits us.
Building on the previous point made about his perception of human passions being the main tool in the decision making process, Hobbes argues that individuals’ decision to enter society and ensure security is based on the ultimate aversion. It is more predominant than the ultimate appetite, so the fear of death is greater than the greed for power and a social contract is made where all men lose some of their individual power and submit their rights to the sovereign who therefore has the ultimate power in the society. This vast amount of power given to him by the people is very effective in making laws by which he doesn’t abide. In a society, everyone has to only obey and fear the sovereign now, which provides security to the people by protecting them from each other and creating a sense of trust among them. Since all decisions are made by one sovereign, this kind of structure enables immediate decision making and resembles an absolute monarchy, the most effective government regime according to
However, the significant of worshiping the deities, also follow the significant of following the caste system and all that comes with it. The “Contemporary Hindus are separated on the authority assign to the Book of Manu (Manusmriti)” (Corduan, 2012). According to the text book by Corduan, he states that “Liberally inclined people today are uncomfortable with the rigidity of the caste system, but nonetheless, it is a description of what majority of Hindus have thought to be the ideal society” (Corduan, 2012). There are “four basic castes” and one that is an unconfirmed caste, and they all have basic duties and religious standing that are composed of the caste system. These five castes are, the “Brahmins (priests, scholars), the Kshatriyas (warriors, rulers), the Vaishyas (merchants, landowners), the Shudras (workers on behalf of the first three castes), and the Dalits (untouchables, unclean occupations)” (Corduan,
Hobbes also says. “to get rid of competition and war; people must be under a higher sovereign and agree to the laws”, hence why once you choose a faction you must fulfill your duties there, illustrated in a saying throughout the movie “faction before blood”. All histories have to be put aside and above all else, people in this society must fulfill their duties. This implicitly shows that they are not concerned with the care perspective, instead of exhibiting connectedness and relationships, the focus in on standing alone and individual
The novel shows the perfect Indian Mentality of not accepting inter caste marriages and the custom of still living in age –old orthodox and impractical viewpoint. The novels suggest right through that India is a very religious country and older people have tremendous views on religion and young people are quite unable to relate to it. For Bhagat, generational divide is one that India greatly needs to bridge. The older generation grew up in a time of shortage and prized a suffocation social conformity where everyone lived separate but equal lives. The young are almost a race apart with a liberal attitude that is opposed to the Indian hierarchies of caste and creed.
However, the local society was dependent on the king for the legitimacy of its authority and power, and sent soldiers for the state when necessary, provided administrative services. As a token of their hierarchical relationships, each entitlement-holder was to pay taṅki (a quit rent) to the king. In this way local society had a deep rooted relation of mutual coexistence
