The kleros supported the Spartiates and their families and also provided the food that was then contributed by the Spartiates to their syssition. All Spartiates were required to become full-time soldiers who then owed their total obedience to the State. They had to conform to strict social behaviour, had to be brave in battle, obey the laws of their superiors and the State and all sacrificed their individuality to the state. The Spartiates therefore lived by a code of honour involving courage, loyalty, endurance and obedience. Those who disobeyed the laws of the State and their superiors lost their citizenship and were considered as part of the Inferiors.
The puritan society is an orderly, tightly knitted model of a holy community. The tradition puritan village was centered around the Town Hall and the Church as religion was held on top of everything in the society (B). They believed that the limitations of themselves were determined by god, as John Cotton stated “it is therefore fit for every man to be studious of the bounds which the Lord has set” (H). The need to educate the youth and to pass on the knowledge of god was stressed in order for future generations to be included in the holy community as well (E). The community lived under a strict code where pleasure is not allowed as people were expected to put all their heart out for the Lord while working hard to gain the Lord’s approval.
Ze Wei Jacky Luo Section 1 10/07/09 Final Draft The hardship of Cosmopolitanism Conversations are the most important tool for people to express themselves to others. In Chapter two of “Cosmopolitanism Ethics in the world of Stangers” written by Kwame Anthony Appiah, he points out that every culture, every society has its own view on what is correct or not. Appiah argued that positivism and relativism is not a way to encourage communications, because the idea of cosmopolitanism is that everyone in form of one community respect and share their ideas with each other. Appiah believe if everybody on this world are open minded and trying to lead everyone from different culture perform as a global citizen. Appiah also mentions that positivism had driven by two fundamentally kinds of psychological states, which are beliefs and desires. Both of them have different “direction of fit.” said Elizabeth Anscombe.
The government or the church should not fool them, and manipulate them as salves. Hank points out that all of the taxes comes from these poor independent workers, neither the church nor the bishops pays slightly of it. Every single man of the family must work gratis for the lord and bishop, and no one ever denies this. Why? How come no one ever has the urge to stand up for them, to claim for what they deserve?
Uncle Axel, being one of David’s closest and most understanding relatives, advises him to keep this gift to himself - and not to speak aloud whilst sharing thoughts remotely. David realizes now that this ability is abnormal, comparable to Sophie's extra toes; knowing full well the repercussions of a Blasphemy, he willingly abides to secrecy. Having made this connection, David hurriedly contacts all the people he is able to exchange thoughts with and explains the risk of them being discovered. They all agree to secrecy also. Incidentally, this is the first decision they make unanimously and a sort of group dynamic is established.
I think the most important qualities to be instilled in the Puritan children were to respect their mother and father and being able to read the English tongue and learning some sort of catechism. But, I believe that the number one quality was to respect and honor their natural parents. The law stated that if any child[ren] above sixteen that curses or smites their natural mother or father, would be put to death if they weren’t provoked or if their parent was being unchristianly. In addition, a son could be put to death if acting stubborn or rebellious after being assembled in court. 4.
Name Instructor’s Name Course Date Confucian values routinely informed the actions and worldviews of everyone in Han China, from the highest official to the lowliest peasant. True or false? Introduction According to Murray (23), the Confucian ideology clearly illustrates that nurturing the basic instinct to live by submitting to those in power is the best applicable method of blocking the ability to question the credibility of whatever has been commanded by those in power.

Both the competitors is being so adamant in their own decision that is to own their father’s property.

The rituals and practices, as well as the myths and beliefs of the Lugbara are complex and involve very specific traditions. Lineage is very important in this society and this is why many of the death rituals give specific roles to relatives, keeping genders in mind. The majority of these rituals are done so that the deceased may not come back as an angry ghost.

Whether it is angry ghosts that will come back to haunt the living, or spiritual elements that need to be sent to another unknown realm, the rituals are designed to free the dead into other forms of being.
The social structures of the Aboriginal’s meant that people were referred to as the “brother of another person” and not by their personal name. Cousins were known as “brother” and uncles and aunts were referred to as ”mother” and “father”. The obligations of kinship meant that children could turn to many people in the tribe for help or guidance, not just their own mother or father.
