Consequently, there are laws in place that allow the punishment of murder, by murder. Society's integrity is diminished every time a criminal is executed. The very tenets of modern organization are opposed to the notion of capital punishment, yet this is constantly defied and ignored by the American legal system. If no changes are made and the death penalty remains an acceptable form of punishment, it is inevitable that this correctional method will bleed throughout the American legal system and be utilized for "potential murderers" and small-time thieves. The mentality that encourages organized murder in the name of justice is doomed to devour the society that supports it, creating a totalitarian culture governed by paranoia.
The way how the government eradicates rebellion reflects its self-deception and silliness. In addition, the party’s predatory power is demonstrated through “hunger game” to weaken objection and inspire fear. “But they were games. Would you like to be in a real war? Thousands of your people dead.” (Lawrence, 2013) The government exposes its selfishness and unjustified cruelty through isolating tributes and risking innocents’ lives to entertain themselves rather than promoting domestic tranquility.
He started out on with philosophy of political science while on his trips and visits to other countries outside of England to listen to other scientists and learn different forms of government. While studying, Thomas Hobbes wondered about why people were allowing themselves to be ruled and what would a great form of government for England. He reasoned that people were naturally wicked and shouldn’t be trusted to govern themselves because they were selfish creatures and would do anything to better their position and social status. These people, when left alone will go back to their evil impulses to get a better advantage over others. So Thomas Hobbes concluded that the best form of government would an absolute monarchy, which is a government
This side also claims that the system due to its flaws runs the risk of executing innocent people. The death penalty should be outlawed for it is unjust and an inappropriate sanction and life in prison is clearly a better alternative. First, the death penalty should be abolished because it is morally unacceptable. No one has the right to take another life, god created life so only he could take it. The immoral practice of taking someone’s life is as to take all human life.
Authors, Coppola and Conrad, bring to the attention of their readers and viewers that imperialism brought out the savage and rebellious acts of one of their main characters. They developed the idea that the character Kurtz was not the great man he claimed to be in the upcoming of his accomplishments. His wealth and power over the natives led him into a hole of misery. Readers and the audience can interpret that he needed to escape, even though he was not mentally ready, and the only way out was death. The creation of this idea is seen in the plot of Heart of Darkness and the intense scenes of Apocalypse Now.
The sentimentalists in Rigo outlaw the burning of blasphemies, which allows blasphemies to live in the Fringes and Angus Morton fiercely says, “You get more Fringes dwell... ... middle of paper ... ...ng to hunt the deviations and fail, the decisions the society make are calamitous to them and the ones they love and the norms try to eliminate change, but instead they eliminate themselves and their society. Bad tidings are what are to expect for the people that try to annihilate change. Some deviations are favourable for the society, but the society does not use it, they are not sure if their crops and livestock are going to be permissible to the society, so there long hours of labour might not pay off, and their enemies always causing harm to them for they, the norms, the society also will not accept the Fringes people’s differences. They chase deviations and they fail, also norms that go against change and depressingly and the society ravage themselves trying to exterminate the blasphemies. Change is the essence of life; if you stop change then you stop life.
Hobbes makes it very clear that without rules and laws and a person to give out punishment (sovereign) society will not be able to function and people will be getting away with all evil. Hobbes is trying to show everyone that without his rules and laws that society isn’t going to be safe and no one gets benefits from it. He says there is no place for culture and industries because the rules and laws are not strict enough, people can commit murder, fraud, not be up to their end of the deal so they need a sovereign to deal with all this. He basically wants a commonwealth were people must respect them or they will be punished. We see Hobbes talk about how there is no place for industries and how they keep moving away, not settling anywhere because they don’t know what will happen.
Macbeth decided to go through with his plan to kill Duncan, “I am settled, and bend up/Each corporal agent to this terrible feat/Away, and mock the time with fairest show/False face must hide what the false heart doth know” (1.7.92-96). Macbeth knew that it wasn’t right to kill his king; however, Macbeth’s ambition takes over the conscience in his mind. Macbe... ... middle of paper ... ...re power. Macbeth’s fall was his own fault because his lust for more power wasn’t going to stop and he was willing to kill anyone blocking or threatening his path. A position of power causes an individual to feel a sense of invisibility therefore; they think that they are above everyone else.
It’s like a drug that makes you believe you are indestructible and makes you act irrational. For example it says, "I have no spur to prick the sides of my intent, but only vaulting ambition, which o 'erleaps itself, and falls on th 'other" (Macbeth). The quote illustrate Macbeth desire for more power, his ambition drives his reasoning for killing the king. This is how he justifies it to himself. He 's saying he as nothing against the king its just part of the prophecy and his desire to gain more power.
The Al Qaeda militants are trying to overthrow the government because of their religious beliefs, because they want to have more control over people. But it's because of these religious beliefs that this insurgency is sparked in the Prime Minister is forced to embrace the Sunni tribes to get their support to help fight against the militants. Although some support is gained, many do not want to join for fear of his false promises “of permanent jobs, pensions and death benefits for their families if they die on the battlefield.” (Arango, Tim and Kareem Fahimjan, New York Times, “Iraq agai... ... middle of paper ... ... right in the grand scheme of things and although conflict about the subject exists and is a growing problem, legally what they are doing is alright. So the conflict remains to who's right and who's wrong based on who believes what. Although there are many types of conflict, religion definitely plays a large role in the amount of conflict that occurs, as well as the many disputes caused by people's differences in religious beliefs.
