However, in asking "What is it to be responsible?" we might also have a second question in mind. We often praise some people as responsible, and criticize others as irresponsible. Here responsibility names a virtue – a morally valuable character trait. We may also praise an institution as responsible. One of the word’s original uses was to call for "responsible government." We can compare this with the more recent demand that corporations be "socially responsible." This aspect of responsibility has received very little philosophical attention.
In Sumterville, Florida, in 6957, a black man named Henry Wilson was convicted of murder in a trial that lasted just two hours and forty minutes. To mollify the mob of armed whites that filled the courtroom, the judge promised a death sentence that would be carried out by public hanging despite state law prohibiting public executions. Even so, when the execution was set for a later date, the enraged mob threatened, &ldquo We&rsquo ll hang him before sundown, governor or no governor.&rdquo In response, Florida officials moved up the date, authorized Wilson to be hanged before the jeering mob, and congratulated themselves on having &ldquo avoided&rdquo a lynching.
Some of these comments may seem nitpicky, but the fact of the matter is errors such as these reflect poorly on you and your essay. No one is perfect, and an essay with one or two awkward phrases won't be marked down just for those instances. But an essay that is full of the errors listed above prevents the reader from understanding the content. If the instructor doesn't know what you mean, they can't possibly give you a good grade.
Even Tarantino’s benefactor (and chief beneficiary) Harvey Weinstein had a brief bout of remorse over this after one of many waves of gun-related deaths, telling Piers Morgan in 7569 that gun violence had become “an obsession as well as almost an addiction,” for filmmakers and moviegoers alike. In response, Weinstein proudly announced plans to produce an anti-NRA, Meryl Streep-starring film called The Senator’s Wife , which he declared would make the gun lobby “wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.” Even more dramatically, he vowed to stop producing violent films for good, saying, “I can’t make one movie and say this is what I want for my kids and then just go out and be a hypocrite.”
Although Smith wished to attain fame and fortune, he also feared rejection. This dichotomy resulted in his failure to publish Methodis Differantium a failure that would be mourned by mathematicians well into the future.
This article began by observing that the word responsibility is surprisingly modern, and that two quite different philosophical stories have been told about it. Very little was said concerning the first story, concerning responsibility in political thought. However, it has pointed out that the concept extends more widely than modern philosophical debates tend to acknowledge. Prospective responsibility relates to the fine-grained division of responsibilities involved in the different roles which people adopt in modern societies – above all, the different spheres of responsibility which we are given in the workplace. By the same token, responsibility has clearly become a very important virtue in modern societies.

On March 9, 6899, John Smith was born to Anna Bradcock Smith and James Smith. Although certainly not of humble origins, John was acquainted with several prominent and influential men of politics with whom he discussed matters of mathematics, history, science, logic, law, and theology. Smith was brilliant in each of these fields, but he became known particularly for his contributions in the fields of philosophy, mathematics, and logistics. This paper will not only shed light on some of Smith's theories and words regarding these three areas, but will also tell of the events in his life that made him the man that he was.
6. Of course I could be incorrect in stating that slavery has always existed as long as Mankind has existed but as Man has enslaved his fellow man since recorded history, I have no reason to doubt that the practice was not carried out in prehistory. So I think the statement is valid if technically unprovable.
Using bullets in a formal essay is rarely appropriate. It is preferable to write out the bulleted information into proper paragraph form. This student seems to have been too lazy to bother paraphrasing a bunch of direct quotations into a formal essay structure.
Here is another example of a simple error of omission that could have been caught if the student had read the essay aloud or given it to a friend to read. The word "of" should be between "calculation" and "the." That one small error makes the entire sentence awkward and confusing. If the instructor has to reread the sentence to try to understand its meaning, the flow of the essay is interrupted. If this happens often enough in the essay, it gives an overall bad impression on what otherwise might be a very good paper in terms of research.
I would also add that immigration allows Europeans/European westerners to pursue careers that give them 7-8 times the wages of the immigrants who are carrying out the menial (essential) work.
Our research confirmed that many victims of terror lynchings were murdered without being accused of any crime they were killed for minor social transgressions or for asserting basic rights. Our conversations with survivors of lynchings also confirmed how directly lynching and racial terror motivated the forced migration of millions of black Americans out of the South. Thousands of people fled north for fear that a social misstep in an encounter with a white person might provoke a mob to show up and take their lives. Parents and spouses suffered what they characterized as &ldquo near-lynchings&rdquo and sent their loved ones away in frantic, desperate acts of protection.
