    In Defense of the Individualist Throughout history it has been the individualists, like Henry Ford and Rosa Parks, who have led nations, formed common groups, and made the greatest impact. However, people, such as the author, Michael Walzer, of “Multiculturalism and Individualism,” condemn the independent person as an unreliable “footloose” and “empty” creature (533).

    Nicholas walked on and on for what seemed to be an eternity after writing a letter to Justin, Marcus, and Eliza updating them on his progress. After a long and well-deserved rest, Nicholas returned to his quest and eventually came upon a very high and endless wall that had a single stark rusted metal door in front of him. To the left of the door read a message carved into the heavy thick gray concrete barrier, “Hang on to the hope all ye who exit here.” Perturbed by this cryptic message, Nicholas

    Distributive justice requires the philosophical powers of reflection of the greatest theorists. In order to solve certain social issues, the most pragmatic solution must be concocted carefully to solve the biggest loopholes. Michael Walzer is no stranger to the complexity of social inequality. In his book A Defense of Pluralism and Equality, he argues that every society decides on the value of a social good and therefore should distribute those good according to the meanings they have. The social

    The book that I have chosen to write about is called Paradise Lost, which is an epic poem about Satan gaining power once again to take over Heaven, and to destroy God’s new world.
