As people state “to take a life when a life is lost is revenge, not justice”. This suggests there is no humanity in the area, as everyone just wants vengeance. While many argue this is where theory of deterrence comes in. But they should answer the main question, how are people able to amend by witnessing wrong? Instead it brutalises the society and increases murder rates.
Rape and Incest go hand in hand they are both betrayals of someone for the use of their bodies. To take someone’s privacy and their individuality away is horrendous. Being raped will take away self-esteem and sometimes that persons will to live. There is no such thing as a gentle rape. It is in your head forever no matter the level of violence included.
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
This is a physically and agonizing procedure that no would should have to endure, and my opinion anyone who practices it would be incarcerated for attempt to murder. In conclusion I absolutely agree with Lenn Goodman on his perspective of wrong in the topics listed in the article “Moral Minima”. Many cultures practice different rituals, and believe different beliefs, but some are just plain cruel and horrid. There are right and wrong ways to handle different situations, but lying, cheating, stealing, using, and abusing other human beings is not one of them. There needs to be
In today’s society there are many people who have forgotten about the chivalry codes and dishonor the values we had by doing harm onto others, that’s why for the first code to be brought back should be “Destroy evil in all of it’s monstrous forms”. Evil can be in many forms of actions that people do throughout society. For example, Scams, Abducting people for ransom, setting people’s houses on fire, the list can go on. This can be stopped by giving harsher punishments to those who deserve it. You may say a harsher punishment won’t do any good, but allowing them to be in prison for a longer period of
Similarly the Germans and the Jews during the Holocaust were also forced into this ‘kill or be killed’ attitude. No doubt there were some Germans who did not agree with Hitler’s regime, but were too scared to stand up for their beliefs and decided to inflict suffering in order to save themselves from the same fate. This inaction caused much pain and suffering to innocent victims. Inaction can be worse than action in some cases, as not stopping the atrocities during the Holocaust was worse than inflicting them, because the victims could not stand up and save themselves. Edmund Burke epitomes this concept in a single quote, “All that is
Recently there have been several attacks that are nationally publicized for their inconceivable cruelty. Cruelty doesn’t really capture the injustice and breeches of morality that are associated with the murders of children, defenseless men, women, and children. We- the country- is baffled with these attacks. Feeling the pressure to solve these problems on a national level, a societal level, a political level; even on our own individual levels. It is imperative to note that these attacks aren’t just gun related, but are committed using methods designed to make sure the highest number of people are hurt or killed as possible- the killers are attacking with the intent to kill people, innocent or not, on a mass level with no care for their own
Only this time they cut off his hands in front of everyone at target as torture for his punishment. There is a pretty big chance that no one is ever going to steel from target again. There were many types of torture, some of them being especially cruel, disgusting, and just plain wrong. One form of torture was called the evil pear. The pain caused this form of torture is
The director definitely made his point clear to me. Being controlled by drugs is a terrible way to live life. It can completely change a person and make him or her perform actions that would be uncharacteristic of them, as we saw in the film. I hope anyone who watches this documentary is as moved and as sad I was during the entirety of the
“Hostility breeds violence, and violence breeds fear” (Hallian, 2005, p.10) When prisons take away basic human rights, they begin to see chaos and violence and where in that is it making prisoners better or rehabilitated. Society looks at prisoners as these people who are not worthy of rights in any form, they have committed crimes against society and in that should be punished accordingly. Prisoners are punished accordingly once they become incarcerated, but that does not mean that they should be stripped of the rights, regardless of the crime they committed. Each individual is a human being and in that deserves to be protected under the Constitution. The Government is the only entity that can change what is happening in our prisons today.
