But you, you know how to make the uneven even, and to order the disordered, and the unloved is loved by you. For you have thus united all things into one, the good with the bad, in order that reason, which is always, becomes one for everything, the ones of the mortals that are evil avoid this, fleeing it, the unfortunate, who, although always longing after the assets of the good, neither see nor hear the universal law of god, they could have a good life with understanding when obeying it; but on the contrary, they crash(rush?) without understanding, each because of something else, some while having an evil competition with one another for glory, others while aiming at profits without any order, others yet at amusement and the pleasant deeds of the body; <but they have participated in evil business> and are being carried now to this, then to that [evil],:
He further explains that the evil deeds that we perform are of our own accord, and that we are punished by God’s justice because they are done out of our own free will. This argument leads perfectly into the question of free will because, like Aug, I agree that we are not taught evil. Aug explains to Ev that it is impossible to learn evil deeds. It is impossible to learn something evil because our intelligence is inherently good. Since our intelligence is inherently good it is not possible to take away from something that is good, something that is evil.
The second quote is “ For every force there is a counter force.”. The reason that this quote also made me think that daoism is effective is because daoists believe in karma which means that if u do good things the universe will reward you but if you do bad things the universe will give you bad luck. So that says that daoists will not interfere with nature and thus nature will reward them. Daoists also believe in non-violence. They will never be the one who starts a
People don’t judge him because of him lying while under the spotlight as much as the fact that he had an affair. People say ones true colors comes out when in challenged or questioned, but Bill Clinton didn’t lie because it was his true colors he lied because it natural instinct to save himself. In sum it is not fair to judge peoples actions when they are stressed because it more their instinct then decision. On the other hand when a person is in a carefree situation they tend to act without thinking of the consequences. For a person this may be the best time to judge one.
Among all of these examples Wiesel notes a common similarity, indifference. In his speech Wiesel explains why indifference is evil for it, among other reasons, “is always the friend of the enemy, for it benefits the aggressor -- never his victim, whose pain is magnified when he or she feels forgotten.” Because indifference is, as Wiesel explains, seductive and easily tempting, he has made his life’s purpose to educate people to take positive action. To not take action and stand idle hurts one’s neighbor more than to try to help them in the
In the world we live in, it seems that every other person is out for self gain They will step on anyone and do whatever it takes to get what they want, but does that make them purely evil? What if in their final moments they go something good? Or if their evil ways are result’s of circumstances that they can no control over? It’s a hard line to draw and in King Lear Shakespeare explains why through the use of conclusions. The most important conclusion Shakespeare has drawn about the nature of humanity in King Lear is the fact that evil is not something the gods have cursed you with at birth but it is something that you choose for yourselfACt .
They cannot be stopped because the people they are supporting believe in the tactics they are using, and the opposing often take a more peaceful approach at attempts to progress. The other repetitive motto used is “Fair and Balanced.” They claim they want to be fair and balanced, but their actions prove they are anything but. They express opinions and only allow dialogue that is fair according to their self-serving agenda. The saddest part of this entire media circus is they believe the lies they are being told
The Saints did the same things as the roughnecks, but because their label was one of respectability, they were not viewed as deviant. The roughnecks were viewed as deviant because their labels were ones of no respectability and only trouble and suspicious behavior. After looking at all of the different theories for deviance, the one that I best goes a long with its definition of violating a groups social norms, is the labeling theory. This theory explains why some people
A harmless lie is like the hurtful truth, because when you tell the little harmless lie, all you are doing is delaying the truth so in the end they are basically the same either way you look at it. If you tell a person a harmless lie and they find out, it will hurt them more, because it’s always best to tell the truth and people will be able to trust you more if you are honest. Some people believe that telling a person a harmless lie to protect them from being hurt is better than telling them the hurtful truth, but in the end they are hurt even more and may feel betrayed. I believe that “ honesty is the best policy “. The person that you tell the lie to is going to get hurt no matter how much you sugar coat it.
The first sort is really kind-hearted people who are always ready to help all people in the world no matter what social position they have The other sort who only try to look kind and friendly. But they are friendly only with people whom they are interested in. I hate such people because you don’t know if they are really good or only want to look friendly and I cannot trust them. A lot of things can change a person’s character. If you are a kind man and you have grown up with rude, cruel people you can become alike them or a bad man can become kind.
