His laws were discriminatory in that they were often seen as cruel punishments for the lower-class society. One of the reasons why he was so hash was his lack of desire to deal with such little problems as Rule 195, "If a son strikes his father, his hands shall be cut off."

This may be seen as the simple way out of court trials and therefore made King Hummurabi 's life a little easier.
Miss Evers and Dr. Brodus were taking part in an unethical act when they took advantage of the men in terms of their lack of knowledge and money. Miss Evers and the Doctor knew very well that the men were uneducated and poor, so they used these two factors to gain their own personal gain. The study would ultimately prove that everyone, no matter the color of their skin, is equal when it comes to the disease of syphilis. The intention behind manipulating the men was not for the greater good of society, but instead was for the greater good of Dr. Brodus and Miss Evers. Although the actions of Dr. Brodus and Miss Evers prove to be unethical, I also find the actions to be unprofessional.
His name means lucky and fortunate. Despite that, Fortunato was the complete opposite from lucky. First of all, he wasn’t lucky because he became friends with the wrong person.

In Fromm 's essay "Disobedience as a Psychological and Moral Problem" he talks about the reason why people are obedient. Fromm states that they are obedient because most people do not have enough courage to be alone. Whey they are obedient, it makes them feel secure because they are accepted by society.

For instance, if a person is raised to think that stealing is wrong, they have also witnessed how others who do steal are treated by society.
It was that the learning was too easy. This is a great sin, to be born with a head which is too quick. It is not good to be different from our brothers, but it is evil to be superior to them. The Teachers told us so, and they frowned when they looked upon us"(Rand, 21). This transgression exist because if there was superiority in this society the old ways the Councils and the elders strayed away from would try to overpower again.
In S. E. Hinton’s The Outsiders, two different gangs, the Greasers and the Socs detested each other. The author uses Ponyboy Curtis to demonstrate a Greaser’s opinion of the Socs. Ponyboy had an evolving conception of the Socs. At the beginning, he disliked the Socs because they are rich and have no problems, but he changes his opinion because of some discussions he had with a few of the Socs.

The world is filled with many different stereotypes, but there is one in particular that truly sticks out like a sore thumb, the nerds. Nerds have their own way of doing things, and the majority of them are very intelligent. They can also be seen as the dweebs in society because they never want to have fun.
