If they are not properly cited this is plagiarism, which is considered to be unethical act by society; it also violates copyright law, and thus is punishable by law. Often people do not realize that even if they are only paraphrasing or summarizing someone else’s work, idea, or concept and not directly quoting it they are still plagiarizing. Borrowing another person’s idea is permissible if credit is given to whom it is due. However, stealing someone else’s work or idea and acting as if it were your own is not. Thus, it is pertinent that proper citation is always used.
However, while a lie may be helpful to the liar at that specific moment, I believe that in the long run, depending on the circumstances, it can actually be more harmful because the liar will realize that if he or she got away with one lie, he or she can get away with even more. The liar will then become accustom to lying, so that lying will no longer be viewed as morally wrong, but rather, a practice that can be justified because everyone does it. As a result, I feel the distinction between the truth and a lie will become indifferent. In other words, if people consistently lie, other people will not know what to believe anymore. This will ultimately result in irreparable damage to relationships and feelings as people will not know where reality begins or ends, and words will no longer mean much.
These two groups have contrast expectations that caused bad actions to come up or lead them to benefits for their own group. Expectations may force people into something they are not, even if it is to become a hero or the opposite. Greasers were the lowest among the society. The society had negative thoughts towards Greasers, because there were not many things people expected from the Greasers other than doing bad things such as stealing, having rumble, and other bad things that happened around the society. Not every Greaser does bad things, however, the Greasers took the blame for anything bad even if it was the Socs fault.
In the past, some businesses did not estimate their costs and would have no idea whether they would have profit or loss at the end of the year. Thanks to his experience at the Pennsylvania Railroad, Carnegie understood the importance of cost control. Tracking costs led to increased accountability because Carnegie could discover, “who saved material, who wasted it, and who produced the best results” (95). Knowing costs also allowed Carnegie to confidently charge low prices, understanding they would produce a profit. Additionally, he thought that if he kept costs low, profits would take care of themselves.
Willy for years drove the same route for his sales until by the end was endangering the people in traffic around him. Instead of trying to get an office job right away he kept going on the same route when he knew that it was no longer safe until it was too late. His folly and unwillingness to change got him fired and kept him from working for his neighbor. His Neighbor was trying to offer him a way out and back into the world of business but Willie's unwillingness to change landed him with nothing but suicide as his only option. Or so he felt.
If the person yields their wrong doing does not necessarily make his or her pride “the only crime,” but the outcome of it as well. Society sees goodness of other by his or her actions, but can be blinded by what others tell them and believing them knowing what they know.
Some other reasons are to hurt or fool someone, to be funny, or to develop some sort of reputation. If one lies and the lie is discovered, he or she could lose others’ trust and respect. Earning them back could be difficult or impossible because the people that the liar had deceived will be reluctant to trust him or her again. Therefore, for any of the above mentioned cases, except when protecting an innocent from harms, being honest is always the better option. Lying to save people from fates they do not rightly deserve, e.g.
Although this was detrimental for the US government’s reputation, simultaneously it was an event that lead to the improvement of security. In addition, if the US had hired Edward Snowden that could use his wrong doing for a right cause. We all have our thoughts about what is wrong and right, but in reality those who are in power of wealth determine what is deemed acceptable and unacceptable. With this in mind, I state the claim that from a creativity aspect no matter whether a product is deemed good or bad,
When you borrow without permission, that is known as stealing, which hurts the person you stole from and your personal integrity. So co... ... middle of paper ... ... knowledge on how to avoid plagiarism is a common cause. But instead of tolerating and allowing the plagiarism, education as to how to properly avoid this problem needs to be emphasized more strongly. If the plagiarism is intentional, as it is with some less than honest people, consequences need to be severe. Intentional plagiarism not only cheats the author of the original source from credit due them, but cheats the person doing the plagiarism by reinforcing that they either are unable to do their own work, or they simply do not care about doing the right thing.
Using lies to manipulate others often provides the liar with some type of reward, for example money or drugs; however, this reward may not always be tangible. Rewards could also include avoiding undesirable situations by telling someone not to do something (McAllister, para. 10). Individuals also attempt to manipulate themselves at times. People can get stuck in adverse settings so they will lie to themselves to promote a more positive attitude.
