The fact of the matter is that any society is founded on the principles of

And what kind of pleasures have we derived from it -

Laissez Faire – so free you are. The point that is missed in this entire exercise is that the basis of any society is

When does a person feel guilty?
When he thinks that he has not adhered to the internal standard that he had established for himself.
What is this internal standard?
It is the sense of right and wrong. It represents the effect of his actions on others, whether they benefit/harm the society at large.
Can internal standards be set in isolation?
No. One has to think about the others.

Having established that measures external to a person wont prevent him from committing criminal acts or engage in potentially destabilizing activities, I shall prove in this section that the only prevention in such cases would stem from inside, the voice of conscience as it is called. Further, I shall prove that increasingly such internal frameworks are getting more fragile making it difficult for a person to …

But this does not happen anymore.
I want more. I want it for myself. Damn the society. If I work hard then I should get the rewards…Who cares, I am happy. Okay, I shall do it but what’s in there for me.
The problem with this parody of I’s is the very excess of it. We have become geared to think only about ourselves. More often than not, internal controls are now established with the intention to glorify oneself. Others are conveniently forgotten.

The fact of the matter is that we have promoted individualism to such great extent that the founding principles of any society, that of toleration and restraint are withering away. We are now talking of external controls. But they cannot ever work for the simple reasons that people can find ways to get around the system. To bring about stability in the social…...

The Curriculum The last class of my old professor’s life took place once a week in his house, by a window in the study where he could watch a small hibiscus plant shed its pink leaves. The class met on Tuesdays. It began after breakfast. The subject was The Meaning of Life. It was taught from experience. No grades were given, but there were oral exams each week. You were expected to respond to questions, and you were expected to pose questions of your own. You were also required to perform physical tasks now and then, such as lifting the professor’s head to a comfortable spot on the pillow or placing his glasses on the bridge of......

...Story of a father and a little boy who had a bad temper There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily, gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence. Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said “you have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one.” You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there. Moral for the story: Make sure you control your temper the next time you are tempted to say something you will regret later....

...A Tale of Two Stories Mary was working at ABC Company. Her position was an accounting staff. ABC Company is a manufacturing company, which is a subsidiary of a state-owned group located in Asia. Story 1 In ABC, each vice-president, is equipped with a car. According to the company’s policy, the car only can be used for commuting and dealing with the company’s business. Policy states that the car cannot be used for personal things. Every Vice President has a limitation of $300 for gas reimbursement monthly. Mary found that almost every manager hit the quota of $300 reimbursement and many of the gas receipts had the interval between filling gas only 1 hour. These Vice Presidents always use company’s cars to deal with their private things or lend to other colleagues with good relationship to do some personal affairs. Mary believed that if she reports this matter to President, the President probably would inspect the situation thoroughly. She worried about she would get trouble if she did,since the Vice President hasn’t exceeded the reimbursement amount. She decided to keep silent due to the below reasons. Culture factor First, in most Asian countries, people are conservative and inclined to keep neutral. They think harmony is very important within an organization. If Mary revealed these things, she thinks it would cause large distribution. Since the people involved were senior level, she could not forecast what would happen. Second, a strong......

For example, Chavez quotes “what we do know absolutely is that human lives are worth more than grapes and that innocent looking grapes on the table may disguise poisonous residues hidden deep inside where washing cannot reach.” (par. 6) Consumers are now not the only ones getting poisoned, but consumers are paying money to eat poison. Chavez connecting the audience through pathos allows both consumers and immigrants to be one; both are dying from this poison.

Similarities and Differences in 2 Stories

...English 21 Topic #1 The adult and child relationship between the story “A Mother in Mannville” and the story “Thank You Ma’am” is that both characters in both stories have build an unexpected relationship that brings two strangers close. Both stories have their differences and similarities that will make both stories very interesting. Overall I think “A Mother in Mannville” ended in a sad way, therefore I don’t think it has a successful ending. In “Thank You Ma’am” the ending was satisfying; therefore I think it was a successful story. In a “Mother in Mannville” and the story “Thank You Ma’am” both characters build a unexpected relationship that brings the characters close. In “A Mother in Mannville” the man who hires Jerry notices something special about the boy. “Integrity, The word means something special to me , and the quality for which I use it is a rare on.” The man sees’ how gracious and kindhearted the little boy is. “He was standing back of his own carelessness. He was a free will agent and he choose to do careful work, and if he failed he took responsibility without subterfuge” In the story the author mentions how spending time with his dog got the man and Jerry closer. “It seems to me that being with my dog & caring for him, had brought the boy and too, together, so that he felt that he belonged to me as well as to the animal.” I think the fact that Jerry tells the man that he has a mother in Mannville makes him fill confused &......

...circumstances which in one way or another affected the philosophy of both of the writers. Lord of the Flies is an English novel written by William Golding in 1954. The book was written after the World War II, however, the events tell the story of English boys evacuated by a plane to safety after threats of an atomic bomb during the war. The crisis in the novel begins when this group of boys find themselves all alone on a deserted island after their plane crashes with no adults to take care of them. The boys, who supposedly, come from a sophisticated background try at first to manage their lives on the island by setting rules. They even choose a leader by voting, which is a sign of democracy. But after a while, the rebellious nature of some of the boys leads the whole group to drop their civilised nature and instead adopt savagery behaviors in order to survive. The savage behaviors develop from killing pigs to killing each other without any feeling of guilt. The novel, as mentioned before, highlights the evil nature in human beings that needs only the right chance to surface and overwhelm the mask of civilisation. The second novel is Blindness. This book was written by the Protégées writer Jose Saramgo and was published in 1995. The novel tells the story of a city that is hit by a sudden epidemic of white blindness. Blindness does not affect everyone at the same time. It rather creeps slowly targeting people one by one. As a result, the Government of the city isolates the......

...1. The Gift of the Magi "The Gift of the Magi" is a short story written by O. Henry (a pen name for William Sydney Porter), about a young married couple and how they deal with the challenge of buying secret Christmas gifts for each other with very little money. As a sentimental story with a moral lesson about gift-giving, it has been a popular one for adaptation, especially for presentation during the Christmas season. The plot and its "twist ending" are well-known, and the ending is generally considered an example of situational irony. It was allegedly written at Pete's Tavern[2][3] on Irving Place in New York City. Plot Mr. James Dillingham Young ("Jim") and his wife, Della, are a couple living in a modest flat. They each have one possession in which they take pride: Della's beautiful long, flowing hair and Jim's gold watch, which had belonged to his father and grandfather. On Christmas Eve, with only $1.87 in hand, and desperate to find a gift for Jim, Della sells her hair for $20, and eventually finds a platinum fob chain for Jim's watch for $21. Happy to have found the perfect gift at last, she runs home and begins to prepare dinner. When Jim comes home, he looks at Della with an expression “that she could not read, and it terrified her.” Della then admits to Jim that she sold her hair to buy him his present. Jim gives Della her present — an array of expensive combs for her hair (referred to as “The Combs”). Della then shows Jim the chain she bought for him,......

The Story

...Living Wills and Euthanasia Penny Hockensmith Social Ethics PHI 320 Professor Haussmann May 30th, 2012 A) It is good to be in control of my medical. B. An informed living will prescribes my medical decisions when I am unconscious. C. A living will is good. Should living wills over ride doctors and caretakers? THE STORY Imagine someone you love or better yet, imagine yourself lying in a hospital bed oblivious to the world around you, unable to move or show any signs of life, your own existence controlled by an I.V., a respiratory machine, and a feeding tube. In essence you are dead. Your body is no longer able to sustain life, its entire purpose is now replaced by a machine - you are being kept alive by artificial means. At this point the question arises - should you be kept alive by these means or should you be allowed to die a natural death? Unfortunately you are unable to answer this question because your voice is limited to a "beep" on a heart monitor machine. Who then is going to decide if you live artificially or die naturally? Who gets to play God? Well, if your family doesn't have your written consent in the form of a living will, to cease life support, then the doctor will make the ultimate decision for both you and your family. Most often this is the case. Even though writing a living will is just as easy if not easier than writing a death will, many people don't take the time to do so. Therefore, doctors have to debate the question of euthanasia – a......
