This is another concept that is explored by both Tan and Skrzynecki. Skrzynecki represents this concept best in ‘St. Patrick’s College,’ he resents the school and his mother’s choice to send him there. The religion is alien to him and he finds that he cannot relate to the motto ‘Leuceat Lux Vestra’ and believes it is a ‘brand of soap.’ This language metaphor is again brought up in ‘Post Card,’ ‘remnants of a language I inherited unknowingly.’ This concept is also conveyed by Skrzynecki in ‘Feliks Skrzynecki.’ Although Feliks has accepted that the new culture is the best alternative he still struggles to learn English again bringing up the language metaphor when Skrzynecki is asked by the stereotypical crew-cut clerk ‘did your father ever attempt to learn
It's situations such as this that makes me not believe in legal obligation to the extent which Socrates does where it's almost absolute. I do agree with him that one should obey the laws of the land that governs them, but only to an extent. While the law may have been beneficial to you throughout your entire life and got you to where you are today, if it were to wrong you, you should be able to defend yourself.

In the Matrix, conflict between technology and individuality is more hidden in the intricate illusion of the world woven by the
In the first article, “In Search of Dignity,” Brooks argues that he sees the survival of dignity being dependent upon the persistence of the ethical system. One example he uses is the illustration of how George Washington methodically worked on making himself a better person. He pointed out that throughout the years, dignity has been lost because the rules that George Washing and generations of people after him followed no longer exist. He thinks the best example of dignity today would be Obama because his character shows everyone that internalizing a calmly collected restriction to the point of second nature is the way to satisfy one’s biggest ambitions. In the second article, “A Growing Sense of Entitlement,” Navarrette argues that parents have instilled a sense of entitlement in their children because they have spoiled them and have neglected to instill hard working values in them.

S I m p l I c I t y SIMPLICTY, what is simplicity, well according to Thoreau, it living life simple and become to have the belief of Transcendentalism. Well unfortunately for Thoreau his ideas wouldn’t quite fine in today’s society. We need the thing we have in to the world today such as fluoride in the water, computers, medicine, and also telephones. The most important thing that we need is love and attention from family and friends. Thoreau made a very selfish decision while thinking of himself and not thinking of others.
