If America regulated Singers proposal, it would positively effect peoples morals and the values they place on a life. Singer also Cites Peter Unger “By his calculation, $200 in donations would help a sickly 2-year old transform into a healthy 6-year old” $200 dollars would seem very inexpensive to most to save a life. If every American who could spare $200 to donate overseas, the number of lives saved would be tremendous. This would also create a ripple effect causing Americans to follow those who donate. The cons of Singers proposal is that it is unethical and would drastically change Americas economy and culture.
Singer creates two hypothetical situations to support his argument and to get the reader to ask themselves, "Should I do this or not?". I disagree with Peter Singer’s claim that all unnecessary luxuries should be sacrificed for the children in need overseas because most Americans really don’t have the money to give, if we stop buying the unnecessary items then that leaves people without jobs, and Singer demands we give to the needy but never says whether he does or not. The first reason Singer is incorrect is that he believes this radical theory that Americans should redirect all unnecessary income to organizations aiding victims of poverty. But yet I doubt he stops to think if Americans truly do or don’t have the money to give. When Singer states, "again, the formula is simple: whatever money you're spending on luxuries, not necessities, should be given away" (Singer) it’s like he believes Americans actually care.
America, being under the United Nations standard for a country's gross donation would rise in the ranks to being a charitable country that donates the most which would spread American leadership qualities towards other nations. This formula to solving world poverty benefits each individual by raising morals, benefits the nation by raising its standards among others around the globe, and benefits the nation by getting rid of world poverty. On the other hand, Singer's Solution also comes with a downside which is that getting everyone in America to donate a great portion of their income will prove a difficult task. Singer's studies show that on average an American who makes fifty thousand dollars a year only spends thirty thousand on necessities, so according to his solution the
He purchased the house with his hard earned money, and tried to increase his profits by trying to resell the home at a higher rate. This is a classic example of being a good businessman. In these harsh economic times, you must always remember to spend money to make money and Behrani was trying to do just that. Although it was sad and unjust what happened to Kathy, she should have been taking care of her financial business within the home. She only owed 500 dollars in Business Tax, which in reality she didn’t really owe.
Snatched from their families, with guns pointed at their heads, they are forced to kill. Beaten and drugged, they lose all moral values. They are brainwashed into believing that killing is required to survive. These people are children, innocent victims, who need rescue. First of all, child soldiers are treated very poorly - like machines - to perform one task: kill.
Brookes omission in the interview with Ms. Forbes “some other current affairs can be very scrupulous” is ironic as the Brooke is using bathos and only wants the interview to be exclusive to ‘Frontline’. The composer of ‘Frontline’ satirizes the audience and society by conveying that people would rather entertainment over information. ‘Frontline’s’ episode ‘The Siege’ transforms what is perceived by the audience to be the truth in the hope of getting ratings. Just as ‘Frontline’ Hope’s poem ‘Sportsfield’ satirical purposes are very similar and aim to convey that society is blinded by the media and will take hyperbolized media over the truth. ‘Sportsfield’ satirical purpose is to highlight how people would rather watch a fantastical love
We know that as, when there is the rat incident, with everybody being scared, Bigger reacts by killing the beast brutally with a skillet. Also, he reacts with violence against White society as he’s scared of them. But, instead of keeping quiet and minding his own business, he feels the need to rob Blum’s, a white mans, store. However, in the end he doesn’t do it as he is in fear of being caught. Again, though he reacts to it by beating Gus, his friend, up using the excuse of Gus being late to get out of their 4mission.
Giving more than half of one’s paycheck is not a favorable choice, but Singer suggests people need to consider it morally. According to Singer, 40 percent of an American’s income will be enough to survive. Following the “Singer solution”, a potential rise in poverty may occur and cripple America’s economic standings. Economic burdens already headline papers every day in America, and announce increases in widespread foreclosures and joblessness. Foreclosures and bankruptcy does not just affect the owners of the house, but the whole community, including children.
Taxes pay for services that keep the roads running smoothly, keep traffic lights running, They allow people to live nice quality lifestyle. Even though we get nice things we get in return, we also get our tax dollars wasted. For example, we invest millions tax dollars in companies such as Solyndra, and six months later it closes. Also, taxes are unruly because it gives the rich politicians a ton of money to decide what to do with it ,and they usually put it in the wrong place, when taxes are supposed to be for the better of society and public services. Taxes are also unfair.
Mrs. Mooney was previously involved in a dysfunctional marriage to a “shabby stooped little drunkard” (61). Similar to her own marriage, Mrs. Mooney indirectly forces Polly to marry for money. Mrs. Mooney is a ruthless character as a result of her previous troubles. Consequently, Mrs. Mooney’s maternal connection with Polly is non-existent, turning their relationship into a business. When Mrs. Mooney is observing Polly’s interactions with young men, she becomes frustrated that “none of [the men] meant business” and considers sending Polly back to her previous job (63).
