Every choice has a cause or a motive. This is where determinism comes into play. However, Philosophers believe that there must be a connection between our will and our actions. If there was not, then people would react consistently in similar situations. Just because somebody grows up in an unstable home, does not mean they all turn to violence to make up for what they did not have.
My worldview is based off of strong morals and beliefs, but also an understanding of difference. I believe that you should stand up for yourself and protect your way of life but at the same time realize that difference is what makes the world spin. I couldn’t have asked for a better family than the one I have today. Sure they are hard on me, sure they may yell or get mad, but in the end they can see the future better than I can. Although, being able see the literal future would be pretty cool it’s not what I mean here.
97 If Jonas were able to get a family, he would have to hide things from them. Some people might say this, “Very frightening. I can’t even imagine it. We really have to protect people from wrong choices.” pg. 93 Hisjob was to hold memories to protect the people from choosing wrong, but it stops him from living like the others do.
By showing they have changed into a responsible adult, they have proven that they will not participate in the same events. Lastly, Juvenile should be given a second chance. One mistake and their life is over. Put your place in their shoes, after many years in jail, relaying the same event over and over. You regret the decision because it cost your life.
3, Garinger). The phrase "were told they could never change" shouldn't be what people should be hearing there should always be as a second chance for someone to change, especially a juvenile who isn't old enough to comprehend the consequences of one's action. Most believe a second chance is realizing them so they can change which isn't the truth second chance should be us helping them get the rehabilitation and education that they need to change from a person's affected from circumstances to someone realizes that they aren't alone and there are people to help him overcome his problems cause that's what good American
Social norms are rules and regulations that society is supposed to live by and if one goes against them, they are sanctioned. For instance, going against these norms and expectations one might not be able to handle the sanction that follows and give them anxiety which would lead to them feeling like an outcast and not enough. These types of problems are showcased throughout the book whenever there is a confrontation with Emma Lou’s family and other members of the community; however they are put in a situation where they can either defend Emma Lou or discriminate against her too and accept all the criticism and that is what they choose to do because they too, don't want to be outcasted. During Thurman’s life, he never fit in properly in his community, he was treated as a wallflower, never interacting with anyone because of his fear of rejection. One cannot blame him for not ever desiring to have friends because nobody in his community had anything judicious to say, Thurman thought it was because he wasn’t “black enough” (Ganter).
For all I know, I might have been treated better than he was. One thing that I believe that I would do the same as Elie is try to stay out of trouble. I know that some people in the camps would rebel which is something Elie didn’t do, but had thought about. I also think about doing things that I shouldn’t but stop because I would rather not get in trouble. Overall, Ellie’s experience would be harder than mine would
We are told that we are born with basic rights and that we have the freedom to believe in whatever we desire, however, the chains that bind us are morality and justice. People’s opinion of us stops us from having complete freedom. A person with strong morality would feel guilty if they were given the choice to commit an injustice against another, and thus decide not to do so in the first place, even if they are given the opportunity to do what they want with no harm done to the other person. In Plato’s Crito, Socrates only cares about truth, therefore, for him to escape prison would be considered an injustice. He will be breaking the law, confirming his accuser’s statements about him being a criminal despite the fact that their claims are untrue.
In other words, it involves interfering with a person’s freedom in order to protect the individual from harm (Dworkin 2012). There are various types of paternalism. Soft paternalism involves limiting the freedom of someone who has compromised decision-making abilities, whereas hard paternalism involves limiting the freedom of competent individuals (Dworkin 2012). Mandatory seatbelt laws are hard paternalism and it seems more difficult to justify than soft paternalism because it undermines human freedom. However, many philosophers believe that in certain cases, paternalism can be
This action causes some to feel threatened, and later on will create negative emotions and behaviors. During an interview, Bahns stated “People may not think that they’re biased, but prejudice is driving the perception of threat.” By being biased you are not considering the truth about people and their lives. Therefore, you are not inheriting the knowledge about those people. This is another way the lesson that you need to walk in someone’s shoes in order to know someone. This is an important life lesson everyone should know.
Therefore, people may see going against an unjust law as something to avoid because of the aftereffect they will be having to face. Furthermore, It is right to oppose something that is unjust. Individuals should do what they best believe is right in their opinions but laws shouldn’t be fully subjected by the people only or else it may lead to future conflicts and misleading mistakes. Overall, by desired changes, it causes destructive tension for
This manual will help you understand when to rebel, when to conform, and the consequences of these choices. While these are tricky issues to understand at first, this manual will guide you towards what a society should learn and understand just as we Book People have. Individuals should conform to the law when it supports the common good of the people but rebel against the law when it infringes on basic human rights. Conformity leads to a sense of powerlessness,
If people are unaware of their rights, they could get cheated out of something important. Being aware makes you a guardian over your own rights. Sometimes, it’s not for the bigger picture, it is on a smaller scale and looking at things for yourself. It is important to know what your propriety, so that you can do what is morally correct for yourself, others, and the nation. Lastly, knowing the society could help you prosper at being a guardian to your children, friends, and neighbors.
