From the soon-to-be-banned chloehandbag, here is a gem of argumentative prose, considering the question of whether to support the death penalty:|
It's not the same with the links removed, so I changed the destination instead.
A central principle of a just society is that very person has an equal right to “life,liberty,and the pursuit of happiness”.The essential basis on which community is built requires each citizen to honor the rightful claims of air force ones shoes.The precioueness of life in a moral community must be so highly honored that those who do not honor the life of others make null and void their own right to membership.Those who violate the personhood of new era caps,especially if this is done persistently as a habit,must pay the ultimate penalty.This punishment must be inflicted for the sake of maintaining the community whose foundation has been violated.We can debate whether some non-lethal alternative is a fitting substitute for the death penalty.But the standard of judgment is whether the punishment fits the crime and sufficiently honors the nature of moral community.
By contrast,Agape,or Christian love,is unconditional.It does not depend on the worthiness or merit of those to whom it is directed.It is persistent is seeking the good of others regardless of whether they return the favor or even deserve to be treated well on the basis of their own incessant wrongdoing.An ideal community would be made up of free and equal citizens devoted to a balance between individual self-fulfillment and the advancement of moncler down.Communal life would be based on mutual love in which equality of giving and receiving was the norm of canada goose jackets.
What would a community based on this kind of love do with those who commited brutal acts of ferrari sunglasses,violence,and murder?Put negatively,it would not live by the philosophy of “an eye of an eye,a tooth for a tooth,and a life for a life”.It would act to safeguard the members of the community from further destruction.Those who had shown no respect for life would be restrained,permanently if necessary,so that they could not further endanger other members of asics running shoes.But the purpose of confinement would not be vengeance or punishment.Rather an ideal community.would show mercy even to those who had shown no mercy.It would return good for evil.The aim of isolation is reconciliation and gucci purses.Agape never gives up.It is ever hopeful that even the worse among us can be redeemed so that their own potential contribution to others can be realized.
Such,in brief,is the argument for and against capital punishment,one of founded on justice and the nature of moral community,the other resting on love and the nature of an ideal spiritual community.
