I believe that there can be different views on what is believed to be true and false. Some truths are merely human interpretations and can be altered to fit a single person’s mold. Some people are scared of the truth because they live in a perfect illusion of ignorance. In gaining what is true one should not be supercilious but rather selfless and compassionate in sharing this knowledge. Sharing the truth with others triggers a growing revolution.
His gist is that privacy should be respected which makes him moderate moralism, law should only intervene when society won’t tolerate certain behaviour, law should be a minimum standard not a maximum standard and act as general guideline. Is the act of polyandry tolerable by the society? In some society it is tolerable but in some they will not. However, to abolish the act of polyandry will also intervene with the privacy on the individuals. Devlin would have thought the act of polyandry to be immoral and disintegrates the society however, being a moderate moralism he would not have wanted to intervene with the privacy of other unless the act has become very widely practiced and start causing harm to the society.
It is considered a lack of privacy in a sense that others donâ€™t like to be watched, especially if they are doing nothing wrong. It is nevertheless, the governmentâ€™s job to protect us. They do their job by monitoring the activity of the people in order to ensure that no harm will be brought to us as a
and Block 26 sections reminds me of the term utilitarianism. Utilitarianism is the “greater good for the greater number of people.” Sometimes when sacrificing something, we do not know whether it is actually worth it or not. For me, sacrificing agents are unethical, unless that agent gave up information about what he or she knows, or secrets about his or her country. I do not think sacrificing agents is a good idea, especially when he or she is loyal to their country. Unless an agent betrayed his or her country, then he or she should be sacrificed to protect the greater number of people.
Telling the truth is better than hurting the people with the lies. Truth is the foundation for a good relationship. Once we tell a lie, we will have to speak many lies. Telling a lie will give only partial happiness to that person, but when he will know about the truth he will feel very bad. Our religion teaches us to be honest in our life.
Which says that you should follow what your inner self is telling you. You should even follow it if it is evil because you shouldn't try to live the “correct life.” Merely because yours peers or the figures you see everyday say it's right. If you put your foot forward and just attempt to see what you can do on your own you will be surprised on how much ability u have and have been missing out on. This is what cause you to mature mentally because if you can sit back and find your strengths and weaknesses it will elude you from what others are saying because the confidence you have built in yourself. That's why Emerson wants us to “mature” to become better versions of
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.
Due to the really different backgrounds and cultures among us, some people may think that they should protect their own cultures so that they do not listen to others’ opinions. This is normal phenomenon because nobody wants their culture being offended. If we cannot properly deal with cultural diversity, it may influence the relationship and trust building among people. Additionally, if we visit to other countries, it is better to respect and follow their cultural norms and rules so that we will not give a bad image or impression to the local people. Otherwise, it may cause conflicts between people which is not good for promoting cultural diversity.
There is the risk of being ridiculed, because how do I know that someone will not take advantage of this to make fun at my expense and highlight their sense of humor. Although the courage is taking action in a certain way, despite the risk of negative consequences, nevertheless it is the understanding what causes any form of courage. I understand that there is less damage to endure ridicule and criticism than to constantly hide weaknesses and to live in fear of revealing my secrets to the world. Courage is the act originated from the understanding that there is nothing to lose but everything to gain. When you understand that, you can not, not to be brave.
Honesty is a crucial attribute in your life because it is one of the ways people judge you for who you are. It is the most valuable yet the toughest aspect you can offer in a friendship. If the people around you know you as dishonest, you will have a hard time finding good friends that will benefit you later on in life. Honesty means integrity and righteousness. It is a virtue in oneself that everyone looks for.
