Canterbury Tales Political Project: The Doctor for District Judge The tale the doctor chooses to tell is grim, and more than anything, depressing. He changes the theme of the tales from comedy to realism, possibly to show the harsh truth of the world around the pilgrims. The other pilgrims prior to the doctor had told narratives that were unconventional, but still contained some good-naturedness or comical acts. However, this was not the case for the doctor. It was evident that he wanted to pass off the message that the real world is not simply fun and games, and that “shite” happens.
Criminal Justice Ethics Simulation 1. My first chose in decision 1. Would be to challenge my partner about how he conducted the interview. Although, my partner might have strong beliefs that the two offenders committed the crime he was justified in how he went about properly conducting the interview.

It appears that Hawthorne infers Chillingworth initially had another plan, a plan that would not ruin Arthur Dimmesdale’s life. The questions is, why Chillingworth chose to torture Hester and Dimmesdale when he could of simply revealed that he is Hester’s husband? He could possibly get pleasure from quietly torturing them. It would be too easy on Dimmesdale and Hester to show his true identity so he chooses this plan. "What evil have I done the man?"
For example, Jefferson at first told them no, but he eventually went with them. I believe that the devil will convince you into doing something that you do not want to do. The only way that Jefferson could have overcome the presence of the devil is to have a strong presence of the Lord in his life. Once Jefferson was on trial for a crime that he did not commit his lawyer kept referring
If Frankenstein had looked to his family and friends more, instead of his studies and work the outcome of his fate would have been quite different. Walton decides to take a different route as he says “The die is cast; I have consented to return if we are not destroyed. Thus are my hopes blasted by cowardice and indecision; I come back ignorant and disappointed. It requires more philosophy than I possess to bear this injustice with patience.” He realizes he would rather have his life then new knowledge and takes safety over dangers of exploration. Unlike what Victor had decided to do.
In fact, they are so similar that many people think that Moses actually stole these laws from Hammurabi. These codes were both said to be sent down by God, but later changed in order to satisfy the needs and wants of the civilians. The Hammurabic law states that "if any one ensnare another, putting a ban upon him, but he cannot prove it, then he that ensnared him shall be put to death. "(Hammurabi 1) Comparably, in the Mosaic Law, it states that "if a malicious witness takes the stand to accuse a man of a crime, the two men involved in the dispute must stand in the presence of the Lord before the priests and the judges who are in office at the time. The judges must make a thorough investigation, and if the witness proves to be a liar, giving false testimony against his brother, then do to him as he intended to do to his brother.
You can’t pray a lie-I found that out” (Twain 227). Huck is trying to follow what society views as normal. Although he attempts to pray for it, he knows he cannot because it is not what is right. The reason Huck is unable to pray what he wanted is because, in his heart, he knows it is wrong. He knows that he should not turn in Jim because Jim has done nothing but help Huck in his adventure and has done nothing wrong to Huck.
He feels like he’s failed because he cannot prove that the condemned are innocent. The only thing he could do to help them is to convince them to sin. He tries to convince Proctor and the others to lie and say that they’ve seen and talked with the devil himself in order to save their lives. In the end he couldn’t force Proctor to lie which hurt Hale deeply. The day of the hanging of Proctor had come and Hale tries one last time.
was against the traditional views and unjust laws, which discriminated against him and his fellow people. He felt that the only way that these unjust laws and traditional beliefs would ever change would be by protestesting. He also felt that without protest the laws and traditions would remain the same forever. Along with encouraging protest, King's letter was also a justification of his actions. By taking the time to answer his critics (or persecutors, as he is in prison) with patience, logic and intelligence, as opposed to retaliating, King was also able to justify his actions.
This staple of his beliefs is why he doesn't fear death, but in fact looks forward to it. By escaping he is committing an unjust act against the state, and committing unjust acts ruins the soul. With a ruined soul there is no point in living life as the soul is the only important thing, not the body. Therefore the most important thing is not only living life, but living a just life. While Socrates arguments may be sound in his opinion, I'm not sure if I agree with them.
