People want to avoid conflict by not speaking out against society and its members, but at the same time, they want to do whats right. Everyone has been in a situation similar to that in the past, where even for a moment you think that something is wrong that society thinks it’s okay. Now we dont always act on that thought, because if we did, it would create tension. But that thought is always there. Most people just shove that thought into the very back of their head and try to forget about it instead of trying to change what is wrong, to avoid conflict.
Aristotle 's definition of courage involves the feelings of fear and confidence. He believes that a courageous person fears and endures confidence not only for the right things and reasons, but also in the right way and time. However, people who exceed in confidence about fearful things are rash because they tend to put on a show. Aristotle also believes that people who exceed in fearlessness do not have a name. They are anxious for fear until it arrives and then they back down.
Although the leaders of the country are right to hide information on the basis of ensuring the safety of the citizens, there is information they keep stowed away in order to prevent an uproarious rebellion. Such a dramatic response could lead to a possibly dangerous shift in power, and the fall of the entire democracy. The American government is trying to protect its people, but in reality, it is only evoking a defiant response with detrimental consequences. The idea that one’s private information must be secure at all costs has swept the globe and has inspired a hysteria of ludicrous terror, according to writer David Plotz in his essay “Privacy in Overrated”. Yet, there are valid reasons on why such a terror is not absurd, but practical.

The flag represents nationhood which gives us the freedom we need and want.
Being terrified is the thing that keeps hope out of our lives. It is important to not be scared because if we are, then we will have no hope in winning and we will not win.

"Fear involves dread of punishment, from which they can never escape," Machiavelli states in his book The Prince. Although it is true that having a loved leader cuases people to want to stay in the city or country, in some ways it is better to have a feared leader because the citizens won't betray or disobey him. Reasons for this is because having a loved leader is more possible for things not to get done, and people would find ways to do a crime without getting caught. On the contrary, feared leaders are more responsible and he will make sure that no one does anything terrible. Though the feared leader punishes those who work against him, some still believe that they can make a difference and are highly respected.
Although, in The Moral Logic of Survivor Guilt, Nancy Sherman says, “To not feel guilt is to numb the those pulls.” She means that people have an obligation to one another to help them in life threatening events. If we can’t save one another but don 't feel guilty, then we have numbed the human morals to salvage life. Some readers would say that it is healthy and moral for the Seventh Man to feel guilty his whole life because he didn’t save his friend, however, it is not moral to blame oneself for an event that was uncontrollable. The wave would have taken more than K.’s life if The Seventh Man had not have gotten over his survivor 's guilt.

No one wants to do something that they regret, no one wants to commit sins and be a bad person, but sometimes our situations that we are stuck in and immaturity make us do something that we regret, it makes us commit sins and sometimes we are the bad people even if we committed the action unintentionally or in anger and when we hear that line of “There is a way to be good again”, we feel like there is hope, there is a way to be good again and it begins to feel very significant to us. Once upon a time, when I was 10, I was with my best friend and we had a plan to go see a movie together. He told his family that he cannot go out with them because he had plans with me and so his family left to go out to eat, but my other friend, who hated my best friend, said if I go with him he will buy me free movie tickets. I ditched my best friend and went to see movie with other friend and I felt so
In the story, the government decides to isolate their community from the world, which is the world we know today. They did this so that there would be peace in the community. It creates peace between the people because they have no understanding of a world with disrespect, war, pain, violence, and extreme emotions. Their feelings are barren. In a way, the government did a good job of this because they are at peace, but I believe that sometimes we need to know what is going on with the rest of the world, so we can keep ourselves safe.
