What are morals? Does everyone have morals? If so, what morals are just and .
what morals are unjust? Is it just to kill someone even if your life is in danger? Is .
it just for a professional basketball player to play for the money and not for the love of .
the game? These are some questions that you should ask yourself when thinking about .
what is morally right and what is morally wrong. Everyone has different morals and .
beliefs about everything. My morals are doing what is best. If my life was in danger .
and it came down to killing someone, I would kill that person. I am not going to just .
stand there and let that person kill me. If I had something to defend myself, like a gun,.
I would use it to the best of my ability to protect myself from any harm. Another strong .
belief that I have is about cheating. If I had the chance to cheat on a test I would not do .
it. I feel that I am in school to learn and to plan my future. Cheating off someone's test .
would not help me or benefit my needs anymore than failing the test. I would learn more .
by failing the test, to see what I missed and what I needed to study more, than to cheat. .
There are four reasons why we should behave justly. 1) To avoid .
punishment. (Benko, notes) If we behave unjustly we will soon be punished for those acts .
and most human beings don't like to be punished in any way. People will kill themselves .
to avoid punishment. 2) If we could get away with crimes, we would commit them. .
(Benko, notes) If we knew that we could get away with killing someone we would have a .
major decrease in population. Today so many people have so much hate for one another .
that if we could just go outside and kill someone, just because we didn't like them, then .
we would. 3) The truly unjust person would have to be perceived as just. To be truly .
unjust, he or she would have to fool everyone into thinking, the unjust will live a better .
life and be remembered better.
