So, too, do “hunt ethics,” an integration of values and an action based upon biology and the ‘land.’ The hunter has affection and awe for all of nature’s creations, perhaps more so than any other human observer, for the hunter must read the most subtle signs of his quarry, its habitat and its behavior, to be successful....   [tags: Hunting] 2300 words

Moral Dilemma - Moral Dilemma As human beings, we are forced to accept the inevitability of being unwillingly confronted with situations that test the strength of our morality and character.

However, how can we be sure that we have acted morally in a situation that is so morbid and perverse that our intuition is completely torn.

Few of us face choices as fateful as Orestes, standing in the middle of culture, filial bonds, obedience and virtue....   [tags: moral, justice, dilemma]

Specifically, "gangsta rap" which glorifies guns, sex, violence, drug use and gang activity has been castigated. This type of rap promotes a nonconformist and rebel adaptive behavior. As a result, it gives hip-hop culture a deviant label. A simple definition of deviance is "behavior that does not conform to group-shared norms; behavior that (in some way) does not meet the expectations of a group or a society as a whole and is subject to social control" (Liska 2)....   [tags: World Cultures Music Morals Essays] 1667 words
