The government works to ensure the guilty receive adequate justice for their crime, and the act of pursuing justice granted to the state by the will of the governed ensures that “[executing] a lawfully condemned prisoner” defies the label of murder (Koch). The common misconception of characterizing the death penalty as murder rejects the rights of the state which supersede those of the individual. In the government’s efforts to ensure justice to criminals for crimes committed, they have a wide variety of options available to them, and it is the job of the judge and jury to confirm that the punishment meets the crime.

In “Promising to Try”, Jason D’Cruz and Justin Kalef claim that though we take no comfort in the idea of ‘promising to try’, all one is capable of doing is just that and anything more would be deemed irresponsible. D’Cruz and Kalef theorize that, “... promising to try can genuinely restrict a promise in a way that is responsible and morally significant” due to uncontrollable factors that one might face externally and internally.

In circumstances like these, there are reasons why promising to try would be significant.

Murakami uses the curse and the unsettling vagueness to symbolize supernatural ideas and create the idea that the marriage of the couple is unsatisfactory. The curse itself has magical and paranormal tones that Murakami intentionally included. The curse was first introduced to the narrator when he attacked a bakery when he was young and broke. Instead of punishing the the two young men, the narrator described to his wife the deal they had made with the bakery owner: “If we would listen to the record all the way through, we could take as much bread as we liked” (74). Specifically, the boys were forced to listen to Wagner, specifically, one of his most famous compositions, which was the opera, The Flying Dutchman.
This type of injury could be avoided if her mother would have just made her the food or at least supervised.

The Death Penalty or the Capital Punishment should be considered illegal due to all of the things that are wrong with it.
