Parenting. This word strikes fear in a number of young parents because it’s a whole new level of responsibility; many worry that they will not be good parents and will not be able to raise their child properly. Rex and Rose Mary Walls, from Jeannette Walls’ memoir The Glass Castle, are extremely strange people who live their life differently and it would seem like raising children would be a failure for them, but in the end, their kids grow up to be very decent adults. Both of Rex and Rose Mary are good parents because they demonstrate that they care about their kids very much, they raised them to be smart and able to see things for more than they are. The first thing that makes a good parent is not how you discipline your child or what classes they take, but it is to show that you care about them.
I wanted what I wanted and no one was going to tell me otherwise. Most parents spank their children out of discipline because they want them to do well in life and become upstanding citizens and it is usually how they were disciplined. Spanking children should be a decision that is left up to the parents and judged by the actions of the individual child. Not every child learns from a spanking. All discipline must be consistent and tailored to that child’s current needs.
NAME class teacher Date World State vs. United States The United States and Huxley's World State in Brave New World have many differences in social issues, social classes, and religion.

Mustapha Mond tries to make John realize that society in the World State is better off without changes. Mustapha Mond claims “[society] is well off; they’re safe; they’re never ill, they’re not afraid of death,” his statement puts him at odds with what John believes to be an ideal society. Mustapha Mond tries to further enhance his argument by exclaiming how soma is available, should anything go wrong. However, the very irony of soma being available as a back-up plan for any potential mishaps, is in the fact of the possibilities of those potential mishaps occurring in a ‘perfect’ society. Thus, there must be forms of imperfections occurring in the World State.
We Are I… In Ayn Rand’s “I Owe Nothing To My Brothers”, Equality 7-252 has discovered individualism, being independent, a new meaning for the word “I”. Because of this, he doesn’t feel the need to owe anything to anyone. This passage tone is very declarative and enlightening. Individualism should be something we all practice as a whole.

Epictetus would look down on modern Western civilization for its rampant materialism -- nowadays, it seems that it requires vast amounts of money to be happy. Epictetus, however, suggested that we don't need money to be happy. In fact, he stated that we don't need any external things to be happy. He concluded that happiness results from attaining virtue and valuing only that which we can control. Happiness Follows from Virtue Epictetus asserted that while there is no inherent problem in seeking material comfort, the only true good thing is virtue because only virtue can be beneficial in all situations; thus virtue would not ever fail to bring happiness.
Equality should be for every person and no one should be limited the opportunity of receiving the benefits that is entitled to any human being. However, the level in which most believe is “true equality” isn’t very fair at all, and would never allow another human being to reach their full positional or reap the rewards of his success properly. The term equality should instead be explained as ‘something that allows all human beings to get ahead while helping others reaches success’ and not explained as everyone’s is ‘owed the same thing.’ Firstly, supporters of fairness like journalist Ellen Rufft believe that people will do no good by allowing everyone to receive the same in everything. [“Equal pay for equal work” is certainly an accepted standard in our society, but can a system be considered really fair that ignores the difference between one person and six people living on the same wage?’] (2,Rufft). In this quote she points out that the system that most people dream of as being an equal society may be much worse.
