This definition seems to be so specific, that is, one cannot always return the owned thing; for instance, you ought not to return the weapon of a madman, because he will most probably use to harm others. I believe that Cephalus is not one of those who have nothing to say, because their whole mind has been absorbed in making money. His definition of justice is all about what is just around himself, he can justify himself as a righteous man. The only reason people listen to his weak argument is because of the respect that his old age brought. Polymarchus’s definition of justice, in fact, is more general than Cephalus's.
Mr. Birling is a character who looks down at everyone because he thinks he is above them all, showing true qualities of a capitalist. He tells the inspector that he doesn’t ‘like his tone’, almost as if he was talking to a child. This shows that he doesn’t care who the person is (even if he is an inspector, who has the authority to put him in jail), he thinks very highly of himself. Inspector Goole acted as a mouthpiece for Priestley and his socialist view, but without Eva Smith’s story his views would not be communicated effectively. Eva real-life (possibly relatable) story would be able to make a connection with the audience.
He knows he will face a huge challenge while seeking a chance at happiness because he surrounds himself with people who believe that “each man [should be] the image of every other; then all are happy, for there are no mountains to make them cower, to judge themselves against.” While this standardized way of living creates fewer conflicts, Montag recognizes he has simply existed alongside the rest of his brainwashed acquaintances as opposed to actually living. The rest of the population puts up a great fight, but Montag’s only alternative is a mindless void - hardly worth living
Then, they go on a journey of self realization to improve their insight and morals. This makes Roark an unrealistic man because he starts out with that self realization, he doesn't need to have some sort of epiphany to find his morals.Throughout The Fountainhead, one main theme is Howard Roark’s exceptional moral and practical qualities. But these exceptional qualities are not something he gains throughout the book, these qualities were already present. His lack of flawed character causes him to seem surreal. A man does not realistically have perfect morals and intelligence, no one is that pure.
Equality 7-2521 is born into a society in which individuality is a crime. Each man and woman born is expected to be as all others are. Gifts and talents are especially shunned. Equality has been taught that “it is not good to be different from our brothers, but it is evil to be superior to them” (21). To his societal disadvantage, Equality 7-2521 is gifted with a great intelligence and a burning curiosity to understand.
This is explained very systematically in Professor Ernest Weinrib’s “Corrective justice in a nutshell”. According to professor Weinrib there are two ways in which justice prevails; one is corrective and the other being distributive. Corrective justice is based on restoration of equality. As explained by Aristotle, he likens the parties ' initial positions to two equal lines. The injustice upsets that equality by adding to one line a segment detached from the other.
“I do not wish to quarrel with any man or nation, I do not wish to split hairs, to make fine distinctions, or set myself up as better than my neighbors” (“Civil Disobedience”). Henry David Thoreau was a man who was marvelous at contradicting himself. He says he does not want to make himself seem superior to others, but all the man does is patronize others who do not think or act as he does. The man preaches individuality, but one cannot truly be an individual; all the ideals that someone come up with and follow, it is almost promised someone else has already thought of it. The simple act of trying to have someone follow the way another think and live, which is what Thoreau spent most of his life doing, is in fact stripping them from their own
Holden is unaware of his problem. When people try to help him he tells them there is nothing wrong with him. Holden wonders why he cannot connect with others. He blames it on other people when the source of his problems is himself. Holden’s past holds him back from connecting with others, but his fear of letting go of his past has him limited and scarred from making new relationships and connections.
Yes, it may be one of the best options considering the position they are in, but he was the reason why the crew is in that position in the first place. Additionally, he does not keep control over his shipments, which causes the crew to intensify the unfavorable outcome. Odysseus is a stubborn man who only does what he thinks is best instead of thinking of what is best for everyone. He was, however, a great leader when
