Wishing a more equal distribution of wealth, Robin Hood helps the most vulnerable people in society. He does not keep the wealth himself, but rather, gives it away. It is his internal goodness and unselfishness that prevents him from violating the Principle of Retributive Justice. He does not deserve punishment, as his motivations were not immoral. Utilitarianism inspires Robin Hood as he strives to create a better world and a more prosperous society.
However, I find it hard to believe that injustice is better than justice. His first point in commending injustice essentially declares that justice is shaped out of injustice. He claims that the natural way of man is that each person wants to be superior and more prosperous in their life than anyone else and that they do not want anything negative to happen them. Since the repercussions outnumber the rewards an agreement is made to not benefit from the rewards nor experience the effects of injustice.

Conversely, someone may believe that George's actions were selfish and that he benefits himself by killing Lennie. After George comes after Lennie, the dim-witted man asks if George was going to yell at him. Reluctantly George told him “If I was alone, I could live so easy,” (103). Although George said
Even people who consider themselves to be weak can redeem themselves when challenging opportunities arise. His attempt to deal with his guilt by avoiding it does nothing toward redeeming himself, and thus his guilt endures which is why he cringes every time Hassan’s name is mentioned. The development of Amir to become good again in the transition from adolescence to adulthood accounts for the forgiveness and redemption by making right his past wrongs against Hassan by saving Hassan’s son Sohrab, indicating that even people who are weak can change their foolish ways. Amir initially, demonstrates his betrayal to Hassan and forces himself to believe that the reason he ran away was due to him being a coward. “I ran because I was a coward and thats what I made myself believe” (Hosseini 77).
But, you might forgive him, and only once you forgive him can you start to realise how much better he is as a person than before. Bystanders might still think he is still the murderer that he used to be, but you know that he has become a much better person. This draws a parallel to yourself. You can never really forget about your past, and once you remember those accursed memories, you might think like the bystanders, degrading yourself because of your past actions despite knowing you have indeed become a better person. But once you confront your problems and properly reflected and repented, you will finally able to recognise yourself as the new person you are.

Some of the passages are subtle entities and some are teachings that promote an ideal. “ Wise children make their fathers proud of them; foolish ones bring their mothers grief” (10:1). This first passage is very simple; if you are wise, then you will be good to your parents, the teaching is, do not be foolish. The next passage has great insight, “wealth you get by dishonesty will do you no good, but honesty can save your life” (10:2). This passage is an ellipsis because it leaves out detail to how exactly honesty can save your life, but it will do you more good than being dishonest.
