I mistrust the judgment of every man in a case in which his own wishes are concerned. ~ Daniel Webster. To an extent I agree with this quote, but some arguments I have say otherwise. To a degree a man’s judgment can be trusted if his intentions are altruistic ones, but the pervasive issue still remains in that it is human nature to see flaw in others hopes to make a conclusion in which may or may not be true. The purest judgment lies in those who expect no results and thoroughly analyze the conclusion they wish to understand, disregarding judgments about selfishness due to one who’s own wishes are concerned.
They include, the change within oneself discovered during conflict due to inner turmoil and personal vengeance, the possession of power which leads to take advantage of people’s vulnerability and the adversities faced by individuals due to an immense sense of fear in the society as an aftermath of conflict. It is in the nature of human to be controlled by the wants and desires of our mind, but sometimes the inner turmoil and personal vengeance within one’s intentions can result in corrupt human nature. Vengeance is usually the root of conflict and the problem is that sometimes personal malice can lead an individual’s intention to grow into such immorality that they often tend forget the fundamentals of humanity and justice towards the society. Similarly, in the play, ‘The Crucible’, Arthur Miller portrays the extent that personal vengeance can have on a society, where the ‘townsmen’ accuse their own for personal gain. This is portrayed through Abigail Williams’ character as she seeks revenge on Elizabeth proctor for sacking her from her job at the Proctors’ and as a consequence demolishing her from the entity of her desires, John Proctor.
Therefore people may think what they're doing is right in their certain situation but in reality they are actually in the wrong. Also this conveys there is no convincing reason as to why people should be good as relativist thinker Mackie says there are no objective values rightness and wrongness do not exist in the world. alternatively this statement proposes that relativist have not defined what is right or wrong so therefore the relativist theory cannot provide a convincing reason as to why people should be good because they do not have a definition at all of what is right or wrong and they clearly recognise that there are different perspectives of what is right or wrong. No two people may agree on judgement, Sumner a cultural relativist suggests that ancestors have passed down traditions and they are just an experience of their culture. This conveys that there is no convincing reason as to why people should be good because if there cultural says they should do something that is morally wrong, for example killing someone to use them as a sacrifice then in their eyes they are not doing anything wrong they are just following their culture and it doesn't convince them to be good.
Torture is defined as inflicting intense pain on the victim, and some people also consider emotional distress, humiliation, and shame to be torture. Some feel that torture is immoral regardless of the situation, while others feel that in some circumstances torture is justified. Another major concern people have, is the fact that the people who carry out the torture will taint the image of themselves and their country as a whole. Although torture is a horrible practice to inflict on another person, we need to
As people we will sometimes go to great lengths to not be considered a freeloader or moocher. The rules possess’ strength and it often produces a yes response to requests. The reason that the rule is so strong is because it stands out to people on how someone is as a person. From time to time as people we get too caught up in what others think of us so we take the rule and use it as a stepping stone so people think higher of us. This usually affects the decision to act in accordance with with the rule.
The knowledge to know that someone can be equal, but not treated equally can be discouraging to most. Instead George uses this steam to motivate his dream of being free. One can only take so much before change is necessary. The is shown when George says, “I have been careful, and I have been patient, but it's growing worse and worse; flesh and blood can't bear it any longer;—every chance he can get to insult and torment me, he takes. The decision became clearer that this situation will only get
Singer admits that there may be a “psychological difference” among the conflicting cases, but he also believes that it provides no excuse to a human’s moral obligation. To explain, just because a person feels ok about not taking action because other people choose to not take action, does not mean that they are morally justified. In his first counterexample, Singer is out to prove that whether there are many people involved in the situation, or one person, it makes no difference. With the idea “global village” and the technology of today’s society, Singer dismisses the idea of distance being a factor. He claims that “instant communication and swift transportation” have made relief organizations so efficient, and that helping them has become as efficient as helping a neighbor.
This rational, or to some irrational, fear of a falling nation leads to desperate hopes to find happiness, and for others, an escape to peace. Political correctness and a desperate attempt to quiet “mean jokes” or “bad language” could be seen as some people attempting to make things better, but in reality, essentially make things worse. Not all people can be pleased at all times; some will be unhappy, and that’s a sad truth of life many people do not
Because there are too many mixed feelings and perspectives regarding the issue. But I feel denotology would offer the best reasoning, explanation and/or problem solver. Not that everyone would agree, but this view point could begin a path to possibly finding a common ground on the moral issues that stems from suicide. Deontologists believe that no matter the reason, doing wrong to another person is wrong. Treat everyone as an equal and with pride.
By doing so, the only thing they are accomplishing is pointing the finger. It will not help their current situation nor will it help them move forward in life. There is only one person you can blame for one’s mistake and that is yourself. That does not mean you don’t have the ability to be successful, because we all have that ability. People would have a better understanding of success and how to accomplish such goals if they put down the finger and looked at themselves for their own mistakes.
