A modest proposal in values fairness and justice by Valentino gomez

A modest proposal, to begin with, is a story that i believe after reading it, does not show any signs nor characteristic traits of the values called justice and fairness. This story is too cruel to have these two important values. The definition of these two words should be left clear before starting by stating why in my opinion i believe that those two values are not pointed out. Justice is the condition of being morally correct or right, it is fairness in the way people are treated or dealt with; while Fairness is an impartial and just treatment or behaviour without favouritism or discrimination. It is the quality of being reasonable and right, doing what is correct. Being fair is being equal with people, not choosing someone over some selfish reasons, but to be reasonable about it and about the choices taken. The reason why i did not see these two values in the story is because none of the characters in it have it. No one is fair to no one. Jonathan swift made this proposal where he said that the wealthy have the right to buy the children of the poor. The reason he made this proposal was because he saw that Ireland was entering into an economic crisis and there was overpopulation. And his only resolution was to feed poor 1 year okd babies to the wealth and that way there would be less people in the country and the poor would have more money to be able to feed all of their other kids. Now this is a very unfair proposal and decision made by Swift since the poor families are gonna go through a lot just for economical and overpopulation reasons. He should have found another way to find a solution ti this problem not by killing some innocent babies. It is very unfair for them to be killed and fed to the wealthy, after all babies have not conscious of what is happening around them and can not do anything about it but let it happen. This decision made by him is very selfish, cruel, and harmful for the poor people living in Ireland. After all Swift does not know what those families are going through since he doesn’t have kids of his own. He proposed to the mothers to stop working and feed their children a lot of food so they could have more meat on their skin and they would be enough to divide in four plates and to be used as accessories. In other words, the horrible proposal that Jonathan made is just called being unfair towards his people.

The diary of Samuel pepys in my opinion by valentino gomez

The diary of Samuel pepys in my opinion by Valentino gomez

The story “The Diary of Samuel Pepys” is a story that has two values which are thankfulness and trustworthiness. These two values are very important in a person and in a character of any story. The aspect of these two values should be left clear for the readers understanding. Thankfulness is when someone is feeling or showing gratitude, when you are pleases and grateful for what you have, this is a time when you  are being thankful; it can be either for a favor or for the help of someone that you may feel this. While trustworthiness is when someone is honest, and can b entrusted with your secrets or with anything else of importance.  It is the ability to be relied on as honest or truthful.
Now in this story these two values are shown at different moments of the story. I believe that Samuel has the value of trustworthiness at a context of the story but not in a specific part. For example, you can trust him when it comes to him writing on his diary since it’s confidential things for him he writes there and he does not expect other people to fond out so thats why he is honest to this book. He is not trustworthy as a man, since he cheated on his caring wife. That is someone who can not be trusted anymore after that incident. He also lacks empathy in the part of the fire, when he just stares from his window. He can’t he be trusted since he didn’t help when he had the chance to, his neighbours where in a moment of crisis and he did not do anything about it. But the people from the neighbourhood do have trust on each other since they helped each other out. Pepys was thankful at a moment where his wife cooked meal for him, and served him dinner. He showed his appreciation even after he has cheated and showed lack of care and thankfulness towards her.

the virtues by valentino gomez

                                                              THE VIRTUES


It suggests that a virtue theory takes the virtues and vices of agents to be more fundamental than evaluations of acts or beliefs, and defines right acts or justified beliefs in terms of the virtues.
It argues that there are two important but different concepts of virtue: virtues are qualities that attain good ends, and virtues are qualities that involve good motives.Accordingly, vices are qualities that either fail to attain good ends or involve bad motives. Finally, the introduction summarizes the eleven essays in the collection, which are divided into four sections.


in a Virtue is a habitual and firm disposition to do good The end of a virtuous life consists in becoming like God St. Gregory of Nyssa. There are human virtues and theological virtues. Human virtues are habitual and stable perfections of understanding and will, which regulate our actions, order our passions and guide our behavior in accordance with reason and faith. Acquired and strengthened through morally good and reiterated acts, they are purified and elevated by divine grace. The main human virtues are the so-called cardinals, which group all the others and constitute the bases of virtuous life. They are prudence, justice, strength and temperance.

where I live the virtues that arise in people are how one can believe since they are seen as they are and how they act towards other people as when they are cautious with some example in a situation that are discussing 2 people and the other person It happens is not aware of what happens because it is not fixed in them, also if a problem happens between neighbors is arranged because it is a neighborhood where several people live and respect those around them in their neighborhood, you can also see them people who have much faith more than all for their religion because all who live here are very religious Catholics and you see that they go to church a lot, but there are many elders.


he conclusion is that there are many virtues that are divided into, prudence disposes the reason to discern, in each circumstance, our true good and to choose the appropriate means to realize it. It is the guide of the other virtues, indicating their rule and measure. Justice consists in the constant and firm will to give others what is due them. Justice for God is called the virtue of religion. Strength ensures firmness in difficulties and perseverance in the pursuit of good, even reaching the ability to accept the eventual sacrifice of one's life for a just cause. Temperance it moderates the attraction of the pleasures, it assures the dominion of the will over the instincts and seeks the balance in the use of the created goods.Faith is the theological virtue by which we believe in God and in all that He has revealed to us, and that the Church proposes to us to believe, since God is the Truth itself. By faith, man freely abandons himself to God; therefore, the believer tries to know and do God's will, since "faith acts through charity and hope is the theological virtue for which we desire and expect from God eternal life as our happiness, trusting in the promises of Christ, and supporting us in the help of the grace of the Holy Spirit to deserve it and persevere until the end of our earthly life.
