    Review Resist Not Evil (Resist Not Evil) PDF Õ Clarence Darrow Review × PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ï Clarence Darrow Thought provoking to be sure but ultimately I disagree with Darrow's conclusionsWhile the criminal justice system is indisputably broken I think Darrow errs in ascribing the causes of crime to being purely environmental and I especially disagree with his conception of criminal behavior as a disease He denies the role of free will reducing men to nothing than the product of their environments not as the thinking acting purpose driven beings

Resist Not Evil

Resist Not Evil Summary à 2 From the far reaches of the human mind come these tales of unrestrained anti authoritarianism No government no leaders no authority no rules and complete freedom of action Egoism solipsism anarchism and other heresies now revealed to corrupt your mind Clarence Darrow is best known for defending t. But sooner or later all conduct and all life must rest on truth It s a beautiful book The unjust condition of human life is sooooo extensive that I don t know how to receive Darrow s admonition to resist not evil Homo sapiens are violent from time to time I think we can reduce violence by following a path of justice based on love and I agree that the disorganized vicious would be far less powerful than the organized vicious There s a very high percentage of truth about the nature of the violence upon which nation states rest Punishment to terrorize men from violating human order is like the threat of hell to terrorize souls into obedience to the law of God We can reduce the degree of institutional terror in society by supporting the value of every life through love education work art anti racism healthy food healthy environments and healthy care for our bodies and minds We can t eradicate terror or hell Nature provides hell and terror through disease catastrophe and death We don t have to add to it through social and economic ineuality and injustice Darrow s closing sentence is true No human soul can be rightly reached except through charity humanity and love

Review Resist Not Evil

Resist Not Evil Summary à 2 He right to teach evolution in the Scopes trial Not so well known is his lifetime of service on behalf of victims of government persecution In Resist Not Evil Darrow presents a convincing case for abolishing the criminal justice system Darrow argues that neither punishment nor prison reduce the c. My first encounter with Clarence Darrow occurred when Kevin Spacey was playing the character at The Old Vic Theatre in London What caught my interest apart from Spacey s mesmerising performance was a line uttered midway through the show The cause of crime is poverty ignorance hard luck and generally youth Then and there I knew I wanted to find out about this American lawyer Unfortunately Resist Not Evil is not as convincing as Darrow might have been in the courtroom Darrow portrays the state as an entity which only protects the interests of its rulers yet he lacks a clearly structured argument and thus also the persuasiveness of someone like Charles Tilly who beautifully compared state making to organised crime Originally published in 1903 the book also suffers from its inability to react to the thoughts of famous international relations theorists who were writing during and after the First World War and who described the use of violence in international relations in great depth In comparison Darrow s views about complete disarmament seem uite naiveWhen Resist Not Evil finally focuses on the conditions within the state Darrow promotes the idea that causes of crime are environmental that crime arises from poverty lack of opportunities the necessity to make a living While I do agree that state should focus on building better schools not better prisons another thought mentioned in the play his overall argument neglects the influence of free will and the possibility that evil might exist even within a fair societyThat being said Darrow makes a great number of interesting points He emphasises that our justice system focuses on punishing bad actions and offers no rewards for good actions He points out how nonsensical it is to imprison a perpetrator when it does no good to his victim I think Darrow would find African justice system which focuses on restorative as opposed to retributive justice uite interesting For example after the Rwandan genocide the Gacaca courts were supposed to heal the community and help with reconciliation Darrow also claims that judging someone s life based on one action is wrong He states that law is arbitrary what s illegal in one state is not illegal in the other and what s worse even when decrees of courts are wrongful citizens will be punished for their disobedience He writes that there is no indisputable correlation between being a bad person and committing a bad action for example an inherently greedy man who inherited a fortune will never be tempted to break the law simply because of favourable circumstances He says that we should judge others not solely by the temptation to which they yielded but also by the temptation which they resistedAnd for all this and many other thoughts I am glad that I have read the book

Resist Not Evil Summary à 2 Rime rate and the only reason for them is vengeance and cruelty He points out that most crimes are committed against property by people who have been shut out of the economic system This reprint of Darrow's controversial assay could not be timely his ideas have lost none of their fire or relevanc. This book s title comes from Matthew 539 and goes on to advice turning the other cheek In this small book by Clarence Darrow he expands on his philosophy of non violence and his concerns about the legal system He argues that the state is formed in violence and is thus inevitably corrupt and he argues skilfully against capital punishment and imprisonmentHis proposal that the legal system has little to offer in the search or application of justice is well made and his swiftian arguments against the deterrent effects of capital punishment are clever and accurate A modest proposal for the most gory and public punishments for the encouragement of the othersAlthough dated in its style it is still easy to read and has relatively few items which anchor it in its period
