If Walter gets punished for this lion and other people don’t get punished for killing another lion, then Walter shouldn’t be punished for this. Disobeying the Lacey Act is something Walter Palmer did in Cecil the lion written by Matthew Drake. Walter should have been punished for killing the lion that has done no harm. He should be punished due to there being proof by the guide that he hired, he’s putting the cubs in danger, and he shouldn’t have killed the lion for no reason. Walter might be putting his career in danger, but he has to face the consequences.
What was the point of George killing lennie? Is that any different than a person killing someone because they accidently did something wrong? At the end of John Steinbeck's novella Of Mice and Men, George decided to kill lennie because he didn't want curly to get him first but maybe he was being selfish. Instead of killing lennie he could have killed curley.Therefore Georges decision is not justified because nothing is worth losing a friend for. Just like all the other guys in the farm George now has nothing because he got rid of Lennie.
So essentially, if the seventh man carried out his plan, it would have resulted in both of their deaths because “…it was too late. A wave like a huge snake with its head held high was racing towards the shore…it rose up behind K…the next instant, the wave had swallowed him (Murakami 138).” According to Nancy Sherman’s editorial “The Moral Logic of Survivor Guilt,” the feeling that the seventh man was experiencing is classified as subjective (irrational) guilt where someone feels responsible despite the fact that they have done nothing wrong (Sherman 154). The application of this term in the seventh man’s situation rings true because he could not have possibly been able to save K. even if he tried due to the fact that the wave that swept him away is something that cannot be controlled. Many people placed in similar circumstances where
They could say that George could have rescued Lennie and ran away from the ranch like he did in weed. This is wrong because George couldn’t live a life of running and saving Lennie from all his mistakes. George wanted to settle down on his own ranch, but he couldn’t do that with Lennie messing up all the time. The opposing viewpoint could also say that Lennie was too good of a worker to be killed. But this is also incorrect because it doesn’t matter how good of a worker he is, if he keeps getting them kicked out of wherever they are.
He fights to the best of his abilities against many monsters such as Polyphemus, Circe, and the sea monster Scylla. There has been many claims that Odysseus isn’t hero because he lets his crew die. Just because his crew didn’t survive, it certainly does not mean he isn’t a hero. He tries his very best and even test his limits in order to get him and his crew back home. An example of this is in Homer’s ‘The Odyssey” where Odysseus tries to persuade his crew to bypass Thrinacia, the island of the sun god Helios, but they were too stubborn and insisted on landing.
In the end, George murdering his friend was well justified. Although, Lennie’s actions probably weren’t his fault, with him not being able to learn from his actions and remember that his own strength is too much for him that he became a threat. George, pained to do it, knew what was best for Lennie and other people/animals, and had to end his life. Overall, even though George had to make some pretty drastic decisions and someone’s life got taken away, it was all for the best and nothing bad will no longer happen and who knows, maybe George will get to live his
“...We often take responsibility in a way that goes beyond what we can reasonably be held responsible for”(Sherman 154), says Nancy Sherman in “The Moral Logic of Survivor Guilt.” Sherman believes that people blame themselves too much when something goes wrong in a dangerous situation; and even when something happens that is out of their control, they cannot forgive themselves for the outcome of the event. Should people in life-or-death situations be held accountable for their actions? Someone might argue that people should take responsibility for what they do, even in survival mode. However, in life-or-death situations, people should not accuse other, and make them feel remorse for their actions, because, in survival mode, a person wants to save themselves before anyone else. To start, Nancy Sherman says that people take too much responsibility for what happens under their watch even though they could not have kept it from happening.
“The Seventh Man” is about a man telling a very tragic story about his friend K. When the seventh man was younger, there was a massive hurricane. He was so desperate to go outside, that when they were in the eye of the storm, he asked and his dad said he could go but, not far. He decided to go to the beach (they didn’t live too far so), his friend K. decided to come with him. When they got to the beach the seventh man could feel
One specific example is when Theseus was preoccupied with other things he forgot to change the color of the sail, which would let his father know he was ok and because of this carelessness it caused the death of his father. It’s these morals and lessons that act as building blocks or pillars that aid ancient civilizations and allow them to thrive. “The
A pearl of water appeared,” (Pi 87). With these actions, Pi is shown as desperate and attempting to do anything for a drink of water now. Last but not least,if you ever forced to survive with a tiger, I’m sure you would never in a million years think of taming it. In The Life of Pi, he does just that, for the survival for the survival of him and the tiger he says, .”I had to tame him. It was at that moment that I realized this necessity.
Despite knowing his regiment might survive he was sure he wouldn 't and ran away to save his own life. The thought of desertion has been a dilemma for young Henry, and been plaguing the entire march. After an adrenaline rush of a first battle he came to senses and ran away, doing the action that had been plaguing his mind. Giving into his fear, and deserting his comrades whether they might live or die without him. In the end Henry ran.
Huck runs away one day so he could be free. I don’t think I would run away because I couldn’t live by myself in an island. He had a smart brain to make it seem like the house got robbed and he got killed to run away and they wouldn’t go look for him. I wouldn’t be able to think of all that to do so they wouldn’t go look for me. Huck is brave enough to do that and to go live in the island were many things can happen to him.
