If this were to happen then you would have to further step away from your moral code of ethics and torture them further or even resort to something drastic such as threatening members of their family as a demonstration of your power over them. In some cases people will say anything, to avoid being tortured. In some countries with oppressive governments, people will sometimes accuse innocent people of criminal activity in an attempt to save themselves. As a result of this innocent people are tortured until they admit to things they didn't do, and punished. Torture may not necessarily guarantee accurate or reliable information at the expense of a potentially innocent person.
In modern society, where human rights are highly protected, torture is considered as a hideous crime that makes us feel repugnant. In fact, in a few circumstances, as an interrogation technique, some people are of the opinion that the use of torture is justified. However, torture should still not be legalized because not only the information gathered from it is usually unreliable, but also its effects on both victims and perpetrators are unacceptable. There is no doubt that the confession extracted through torture is not always trusted. Humans, including detainees, mostly tend to avoid pain, which means they may deliver any information just to appease the tormentors instead of the accurate one.
Nevertheless, his subsequent actions proved to be counterproductive to the revolution and detrimental to the French people. The French Revolution was based upon fear and uncertainty which was exploited by Robespierre illustrating his dictatorial behaviour. Robespierre actively encouraged the riots and violence that plagued France during the Terror because he believed that fear and terror was necessary for the revolution to succeed, claiming that “terror is nothing else than swift, severe, indomitable justice” (Robespierre, 1794). Robespierre compromised many of his ideals at the height of the French Revolution such as his stance on the death penalty. According to Linton (2006) Robespierre compromised his principles because of the anarchy and became increasingly dictatorial
“Identity Thief” shows how in the pressure to adapt in means of hiding, the flaws still remain. The long, imposing nose symbolizes the need to lie to meet society’s standards but also the repulsiveness of it. In the past, to be able to please others it happened for me to create a small lie to be able to fit, however it has been something I despised about myself and ever since, I have been able to block the penchant. The blindfolded eyes symbolizes the self-disparagement in the fear to look straight which is a symbol of confidence, because of what society feels is conventional. Often, people struggle to find confidence and tend to hide behind the fact of being shy instead of working on one’s buoyancy.
In this case, however, the sort of “religion” that they follow is changing the people for worse by making this society become violent. It is ironic that the Christian Trinity represents purity and holiness, while the black box represents sin and death. This is significant because the box manipulates the religion to support the violence that will soon occur, thinking its “okay” to stone someone to death for religious purposes. As Tessie Hutchinson states at the end, “It wasn’t fair,” (131), and she was correct. It isn’t fair to sacrifice innocent people just because God would have wanted the townspeople to do so.
But even after these brutal forms of imprisonment, punish and dehumanization that was lived both by the prisoners, and Jesus in the poem. The victims had a docile and scared behavior against their captors, this obviously be a consequence of the fear in the prisoners and maybe the pacifist and lovemaking stance of Jesus according to the foundations of Catholicism. Jesus responds to such acts of violence and captivity and threatening’s with a kiss, while the prisoners of the camp, like Eliezer, prefer not to take revenge because there is absolutely no way to undo what was done to
Our life experiences make our present, our values, our way of behaving and thinking. Although no one is perfect, we are prone to develop prejudice against those who are totally different from us. For most of the time, prejudice only affects us personally. But if an individual is given a power to be responsible for another person’s live or death, prejudice can turn into a deadly weapon. In "twelve angry men," we can see how prejudice has its own way with the cloak of justice.
Each action Caliban takes in The Tempest is out of revenge (or love in the case of Miranda). The drive for revenge doesn’t occur out of nowhere, it has to be triggered by an injustice toward the person of mention. Caliban is commonly mistaken for a monster who wishes to kill and harm other people without cause. People have twisted his words and their meanings to portray him in this way. Many people have not tried to see the point behind his actions, and that has made his reputation irreparable.
A piece of evidence also used with the case was Jessie Misskelley's confession. Jessie’s confession is widely considered invalid because the methodology utilized to obtain the confession violated many police procedures. This confession can be compared to the Judges interrogating suspects, because the Judges widely wanted the outcome of guilty to be brought upon the accused. A sad aspect of the two situations is that both
Although it was unfortunate for all of the lives lost, life may have been worse without it. Something terrible always has something good hidden behind it. Furthermore, I think the King's execution was a very controversial event. He was killed for treason, which is betraying your country. This probably would have shocked some people because the Levellers (a political movement during the war) believed that the only crime you could be executed for was
