Justice and the four concerns Ever since humans have evolved to have created a political system the one in power has an obligation to his people to fulfill their needs. Frankenstein was a creature that was done wrong by his own creator and thus, wreaks havoc upon innocent people because Victor did not want to fulfill his obligation to the Monster. The monster knows what justice is all on his own through solitude and judgement from human society. Comparing himself to Adam, from Adam and Eve and the Devil for not being fulfilled of his request to Victor. Human society on the other hand, has a blurred idea on what justice is. Especially today even, most humans judge on what they see rather than what is inside someone. Which is why we hear the phrase “Don’t judge a book by its cover.” Right away when Victor is done with his experiment he is disgusted with the creature and doesn’t know what he has just brought to this world. It was November when Victor had finally finished his two yearlong experiment spending every minute he had on it. Alas it was all in vain when he completed it. “But now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart. Unable to endure the aspect of the being I had created, I rushed out of the room and continued a long time traversing my bed-chamber.” (Shelley 83) This is why the Monster starts his rampage, he is never given any love or compassion and was rejected by his own creator, mother/father, a God to him even. One of the concerns of justice is “Give what you can.” (Solomon 292) Victor has not given even the slightest amount of happiness or caring towards the Monster. Only hatred and disgust. Think of the monster as a child. Not giving a child love or compassion may provoke the child to start resenting you and disliking you. Now not only did Victor not give what he could to the Monster, he did not give what the monster needs. We all have basic needs, food, water, shelter, and a mate. A mate is a necessary need to me, since it is in nature for humans to reproduce. The monster had received none of these things from anyone that has seen him. "I do refuse it," I replied; "and no torture shall ever extort a consent from me. You may render me the most miserable of men, but you shall never make me base in my own eyes. Shall I create another like yourself, whose joint wickedness might desolate the world. Begone! I have answered you; you may torture me, but I will never consent." (Shelley 179) Solomon explains what rights and obligations humans have towards one another. If children have the right to an education, then society should provide one for them. (Solomon 294) The monster only asks Victor of one thing and that is to make him a spouse. Being his creator, and sending him away, Victor has an obligation to the Monster to fulfill that need. It was at this time in the story the Monster wished to be accepted by humans with the one and only chance he had. It had been several months and the Monster had learned how to read and speak all by himself. Then finally came the day the monster revealed himself to the blind father to talk and asked for protection from all who fear him. Then the blind father’s son Felix had walked in and saw the Monster and thought he was going to hurt him so he rushed at him to get him out of his home and protect his dad. Now angered even more, the monster seeks now to ruin Victor’s life like Victor has made his a living hell. The sole reason for the Monster’s rage is Victor not fulfilling his obligation as he is the one in power over the Monster. Victor denied this request and just set in motion what he deserves for this action. Whether it be by the system we proclaim justice or go out of our way for our own personal vendetta. We want what it right for the one breaking the law. Humans want vengeance for being done wrong and this is what the Monster and Victor seeks upon each other. The monster slowly gives what Victor deserves by killing his friends and family one by one. Making him just as lonely as the creature is. Victor seeking vengeance for the Monster killing his friends and family and bringing him into this world. The first victim was Victor’s youngest brother William. Strangled to death by the monster and had taken a locket on William’s person and placed it into Justine Moritz’ pocket to frame her. By then suspicion was raised and Justine was put to death for the murder of such an innocent child. God knows," she said, "how entirely I am innocent. But I do not pretend that my protestations should acquit me.” (Shelley 154) Two birds with one stone. Victor had just lost two members of the family because he did not give what he could nor what he needed. So for this he gets what he deserves and that is to be alone. The monster ends up killing all his family that is untouched by disease and then rushes to the north where Victor follows him. The Monster, giving him breadcrumbs to follow, further increasing the rage within Victor. It is crazy how rage can affect an individual and these two had literally gone to the end of the world playing cat and mouse. Where Victor had finally died alone. “If thou wert yet alive and yet cherished a desire of revenge against me, it would be better satiated in my life than in my destruction. But it was not so; thou didst seek my extinction, that I might not cause greater wretchedness.” (Shelley 280) Here the Monster says his farewells as Victor lays on his deathbed as he is sick and weak from endlessly chasing the monster. It is unjust to see how Victor had not helped the Monster at all. Being a misunderstood creature that could have lived with society but was judged wrongly for his looks. Only through revenge was this story driven. For humanity to seek vengeance is unjust all on its own but it was justice for the Monster to do so as he was as miserable as anyone has ever been. To live in a perfect world is impossible as we have life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We call it the pursuit because we can’t give happiness, we must pursue it on our own. Only then can an individual be truly happy. Following the four justices is the key to being happy as we can make ourselves and others happy. Showing one good gesture and you will get what you deserve. A nice gesture given back. For those in power, they have an obligation or a duty to their people. They must give what they can and give what they deserve. With Victor not giving his creation a spouse, he failed to do his duty for the Monster. John Rawls explains in his second principle of justice that” Inequalities as defined by the institutional structure or fostered by it are arbitrary unless it is reasonable to expect that they will work out to everyone’s advantage and provided that the positions and offices to which they attach or from which they may be gained are open to all” (Rawls 291) I believe that Rawls explanation of justice is exactly why the Monster had lashed out. His request to Victor was certainly reasonable and thus, should have provided a spouse for the Monster. It would have benefited both people in the end, unfortunately Victor refused and now the Monster took it upon himself to murder Victor’s family because his needs were not met. If people in power had given what the people need then the people are happy and have no reason to rebel against the one in power.

The Writing Process

...this process to put his thoughts down on paper in an organized manner. As in all processes, this process has a beginning, middle, and end. The start of this process is the writer’s initial receptivity and finding a place where he is not going to be interrupted. Having pen and paper at the ready, letting one’s thoughts flow onto the paper. No thought is given to content; let one idea pull another, accepting anything that occurs to you. As one moves along putting random thoughts down on the paper, one will see that these thoughts are not random at all, but somehow, surprising they are all connected. Along with this receptivity there is a price, the willingness to fail. A writer, at this point, must not insist on high standards. By standards this does not mean the mechanics of writing, but the social significance, positive values, and consistency of the writing. Worrying about standards will slow the flow of ideas. This attitude toward writing creatively causes problems in terms of how other writers’ perceive one’s writing skills when using this technique. Does the writer’s skill come into play when trying to bridge the gap between not knowing and knowing what to write? Can this particular skill be witnessed to? It remains a mystery. Maybe writing is a skill learned before the age of three or four. Writing takes practice. This beginning cracks open the door to the whole unexplored realm of human vision, a first draft. When the first draft is completed, the job of writing......

Some chapters are more finished than others. References and attributions are very preliminary and we apologize in advance for any omissions (but hope you will nevertheless point them out to us). Please send us bugs, typos, missing references or general comments to complexitybook@gmail.com — Thank You!! DRAFT ii DRAFT About this book Computational complexity theory has developed rapidly in the past three decades. The list of surprising and fundamental results proved since 1990 alone could fill a book: these include new probabilistic definitions of classical complexity classes (IP = PSPACE and the PCP Theorems) and their implications for the field of approximation algorithms; Shor’s algorithm to factor integers using a quantum computer; an understanding of why current approaches to the famous P versus NP will not be successful; a theory of derandomization and pseudorandomness based upon computational hardness; and beautiful constructions of pseudorandom objects such as extractors and expanders. This book aims to describe such recent achievements of complexity theory in the context of the classical results. It is intended to both serve as a textbook as a reference for self-study. This......

Student Unrest

...much hype and controversy throughout the entire country and brought rise to some of the most tragic and memorable protests in the history of the United States. During the time of the Vietnam War, our country had a military draft in place. The draft entailed that every boy in the United States, once he turned 18, was thrown into a pool of eligible people to be chosen at random and sent to war. This aspect alone caused much discomfort throughout the country. Although it was a time of war, there weren’t too many willing participants who were ready to fight for what was right. Those in opposition of the draft did just about anything they could in order to avoid it. Some moved away to different countries and others rioted in major cities around the country. Some, in protest, would openly tear and burn their draft papers. One of the most well known people to do this was heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali. (Historylearningsite) For those with the money and credentials, going to college was another option. Former President George W. Bush was actually one of the men to dodge the draft by being accepted into a prestigious college. The biggest protest groups during this time period were teenagers and young adults, mostly college students. They believed that the draft was unfair and brought much stress to the country. They also firmly believed that the war was unnecessary and the fighting should cease immediately. No one really understood why American blood was being shed in a......

Computer Science

...Von Neumann was a founding figure in computer science.[49] Von Neumann's hydrogen bomb work was played out in the realm of computing, where he and Stanislaw Ulam developed simulations on von Neumann's digital computers for the hydrodynamic computations. During this time he contributed to the development of the Monte Carlo method, which allowed solutions to complicated problems to be approximated using random numbers. He was also involved in the design of the later IAS machine. Because using lists of "truly" random numbers was extremely slow, von Neumann developed a form of making pseudorandom numbers, using the middle-square method. Though this method has been criticized as crude, von Neumann was aware of this: he justified it as being faster than any other method at his disposal, and also noted that when it went awry it did so obviously, unlike methods which could be subtly incorrect. While consulting for the Moore School of Electrical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania on the EDVAC project, von Neumann wrote an incomplete First Draft of a Report on the EDVAC. The paper, whose public distribution nullified the patent claims of EDVAC designers J. Presper Eckert and John William Mauchly, described a computer architecture in which the data and the program are both stored in the computer's memory in the same address space.[50] John von Neumann also consulted for the ENIAC project, when ENIAC was being modified to contain a stored program. Since the modified ENIAC......

Steps for Writing Synthesis Essays

...STEP 01: First you want to select a topic; the issue MUST be related to your field. Consider some ideas/issues that relate to your major. Consider what controversial (has more than one side / answer / opinion / etc) issues exist in your discipline / major and which are most interesting to you and/or relevant in your field today. To help you with that, you may want to move through the brainstorm / freewrite below to see if you can develop some of those ideas. You should use this to help you come up with ideas that you could discuss and develop on the DB. You may even want to post portions of what you came up with here on the DB. Thoughtful interaction could earn you some BONUS in the CE column and allow you to SPIN some ideas and nail down some solid topics. With that in mind, each student’s essay is to be unique with regards to its TOPIC / ISSUE / STANCE / ETC; therefore, the Board is meant to be a place to help shape ideas, not see one and “steal” it for your own essay. Topics will be reserved for those individuals who first bring them up and if similarities exist it will be the responsibility of the students to determine what different aspects of the issue will be explored by each (first poster gets first choice). I will NOT allow the “casual” student (one who is hanging around on the roster but not really submitting assignments and/or participating on the previous Boards) tell me at the last minute that “X” is his/her project when a conscientious student already......

Procrastination is like a permanent disease when I know I have a paper due. It will take me two to three days to start a paper. I have a hard time figuring out the words to express the base of my topic. To be honest it took me my whole weekend trying to get an idea on how I was going to write this essay. My brain will sit there in a daze trying to figure out what to write about then I get writers block. I’m a simple guy so when I have a paper that I need to get done I will try my best not to think or write using simple minded words because I stress so much on what my teacher or professor might think about my writing. Therefore that whole stress factor on writing makes me insecure on my writing abilities. I have never attended any writing groups.

...they have worked for me thus far. I’ve never practiced the prewriting techniques that I read about this week, and that is probably why it takes me so long to write my paper and polish it. I usually ensure that I have clear and precise understanding of the topic. If the topic is my choice, I try to find one that I’m very passionate about to ensure that I encounter fewer issues. I open a document page and start writing. I write as much as I can without researching, during this step I usually have a variety of random sentences and paragraphs. I start my conducting my research, and then I’ll go back to my paper periodically. I do however; make sure that I cite my sources as I go along to avoid any type of plagiarism. After I feel that I’ve done enough research, I usually start putting paragraphs together and trying to make my paper flow. Following the completion of my rough draft, I usually print my paper out so I can read it to myself. I found this works better for me when it comes to finding errors in my work. I correct my errors and reprint the document and reread it .I will step away for a couple of hours and come back and reread my paper once again.

Plagerism

...in this manner, the following are ten tips to curb electronic cheating. Use anti-plagiarism websites. Sites like turnitin may be fast and effective at catching plagiarized writing in student's papers. These services scan uploaded essays for lifted material from across the web. Many teachers require students to submit their own papers to the site before handing in a hard copy, thus eliminating tedious work for the teacher while also discouraging plagiarism since students know their work will be checked. While these websites are quite effective at catching kids who rely on copy-and-paste rather than writing, they will not catch students who hire a writer or buy unpublished content. Rely heavily on in-class material. When assigning a paper, use material from the classroom in the prompt. It is far more difficult for a hired writer to incorporate material from a class they did not attend. Instead of asking for a basic character analysis of the Montague family, ask students to compare each character to a member of the class or the school. It's highly unlikely that a would-be cheater will find material on something so specific, or a writer for hire who is familiar with your class. Makes papers a continuation of discussion. Asking students to continue a discussion from class in their papers serves two purposes. Similarly to the above suggestion, it makes plagiarizing or purchasing an essay more difficult. But more importantly, it promotes critical thinking and allows pupils to......

Com156 R5 Appendix I Introductions

...Associate Level Material Appendix I Introductions and Conclusions As you begin to write the rough draft of your paper, think critically about how you might draw your readers’ attention in a compelling way. Consider how to create a rapport with the audience. For example, what areas of agreement may already exist between you and your readers? What does your audience need in order to make them interested in your topic? Types of Introductions One way to draw in the audience is to grab readers’ attention with the introduction. Consider opening your paper in one of the following ways: • Tell a story or an anecdote. If you have personal experience in this area, tell a story about yourself or someone you know. Example: Last year, approximately 3,400 adult nonsmokers died from lung cancer due to secondhand smoke. • Provide a short, famous quotation. Example: “It's easy to quit smoking. I've done it hundreds of times..” – Mark Twain (1835–1910) • Write as if your position will argue the other side of the topic. Example: Smoking is not illegal and is still a right for Americans to exercise. • Ask a question. Example: Are you aware that secondhand smoke is now a known cause of cancer in humans? • Share an interesting point about the subject. Example: Smoke from cigarettes can linger in the air for hours, even after a smoker extinguishes the cigarette. Besides attracting a......
