People will sometimes think which would be the most effective method to use to right wrongs redemption or revenge? When righting a wrong, redemption is a more effective method than revenge. Redemption will usually result in less violence and there will be less problems to deal with. Revenge on the other hand, will usually result in more violence and it occasionally bites back on whoever was getting revenge on someone else or a group of people for some specific reason and sometimes things will tend to not go as planned.
Karma. It’s a common concept in the present; a religious principle that is fundamental in understanding the effects of one’s actions. It is something inevitable, it comes from decisions, judgment, and fate; it can be from doing good for the community and being rewarded to committing an illegal crime and being punished. The message of Karma is simple––you receive what you give. This widespread concept is evident in Sophocles’ tragedy, Antigone, in which Creon, the quick-tempered ruler of Thebes, undergoes the tragedy of losing both his family and his power. Along with his extreme aggression, Creon refuses to accept moral guidance and makes unreasonable decisions, eventually leading to his everlasting pain and guilt. Creon’s extreme aggravation and strong refusal lead to his downfall because he rages upon discovering that his orders have been disobeyed and he resists moral advice from both Haemon and Teiresias, proving that having an angry and rejecting attitude can misguide judgment.
Karma is a belief in which if you do good, the world will reward you, and if you do bad, it will punish you. Just like in physics where every action has a reaction, is how it is in real life. If you commit a good deed, then somehow, someway, the universe will repay you. Bad actions lead to consequences which is what the universe will be in charge of.
I believe that seeking revenge can be honorable in modern society. I believe this because
If you do something wrong, you receive a punishment, a price for your actions. In doing so, you should atone for your mistake in the same degree of punishment as is the action perpetrated. For example, if you commit murder, you deserve to be murdered. I believe in this theory just as much as I believe that the world is
In Buddhism, Karma has two forms; mental karma and deed karma (Encyclopedia of Religion 266). The two forms both abide by the belief that good or bad actions yield good or bad results. Mental karma is governed by what a person thinks. If a person thinks impure or malicious thoughts, they will build up bad karma during his life, and for pure thoughts, good karma is built up. Deed karma refers to the actions performed physically by a person. As with mental karma, deed karma is the culmination of good karma and bad karma resulting from one’s actions.
Retribution was done correctly in Walter B. case but in my belief he needed rehabilitation too because what after he is out of his retribution. He still needs help and treatment because his urge would not be cure automatically. I am not oppose of his retribution but with retribution people like Walter need retribution too.
The Speakers audience put quite simply is us, by which i mean modern people. Many of us grow up, striving our utmost to be correct on everything, to be perfect and to closely associate being wrong with being lacking or defective in some way. Thus to be wrong is to be defective, to be flawed, which is unacceptable, so in turn we most always be right, even, in fact especially if we are wrong.
The overarching theme amongst these three theories is that each attempts to safeguard society. Retribution attempts to achieve this by appealing to the general call of the community as a whole. This is to say that it expresses in the most natural way the community’s condemnation for the crime committed. Cohen outlines that pure retribution, an eye for an eye literally, would not be a just practice due to it neglecting to acknowledge the two important facets of punishment, deterrence and rehabilitation. If a driver was driving negligently and crashed his vehicle inadvertently killing a pedestrian, it would do no good to have this driver crushed by a vehicle as well. For this would aid in providing minimally more future deterrence than a just sentence; let alone be cruel
Retribution is what most commonly referred to as the “just deserts” model that says the punishment should match the “degree of harm a criminal has inflicted on their victims” (Stohr, Walsh, & Hemmens, 2013, p.6). In other words,
For most people, seeking out payback for heinous crimes against those who constantly defile them, whether they deserve it or not, would be a refreshing thought initially, but doing so would most likely end in resentment and regret sooner or later. For example, visualize a student who got revenge on another student for continuously stealing his belongings and humiliating him in front of both his classmates and teachers. With such memories fuel his flames for vengeance, the ridiculed student plots to use the upcoming high school’s graduation celebration to formulate the very person who wronged him. The student visualizes the bully greatly humiliated and then himself feeling content with how well his plan turned out; however, his conscience then kicks in. He realizes if he follows through his scheme, he will become no better than his tormentor. He then becomes the bigger man and aborts the whole plan as if nothing happened.
I feel that after anyone commits a crime, no matter the circumstances, guilt will eventually take over someone’s conscience and end up destroying one’s life if they do not confess or try to fix the situation. In the end, the person most always feels so guilty that they would rather be the person who was affected by the deed than the one who did it so that they wouldn’t feel so accountable.
I believe in karma. Good and bad things happen to everyone, but some people end up a little more unlucky than others. Karma is the belief that positive and negative actions will be rewarded or punished. The reason I think karma is real is because it has happened to me and i’ve seen it happen to others. The times I see it happen most are when I am driving. Sometimes people build up a lot of anger on the road and start flipping people off and yelling at other drivers. One day when I was driving on the highway, I saw one guy who was truly angry at another driver on the road, and it was noticeably easy to see the two were yelling at each other. I saw one of the driver decide to be a jerk and cut the other one off. After the guy cut him off, he
Whatever you carry out in life, please accomplish it well because one day it will surely come back in another form to you. The law of karma ?what goes around comes around? alternatively, I will say what ever you sow you will surely reap.
I believe in good karma. Some may say that it's just a coincidence that one gets a sort of reward after doing something good for others, but I am sure it's good karma paying us back for our actions.
