Note on The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas One mans joy is another mans sorrow From this essay we can clearly establish a parallel with our Western privileged life Omelas at the expense the developing countries The child But if we consider Omelas and the child as absolute opposite in terms of mentality religion and ultimately culture I would stay rather than leave Omelas Freedom of society reason science self-reliance and productivity are the greatest Western inheritance Therefore if the Western culture is objectively superior to other cultures Omelas well-being is also more important than the childs fate There are two fundamental respects on which Western civilization rests Monotheism and reason The Jews were the first to believe this conception there is only one God Omnipotent Creator of the universe In this way mankind was given stewardship over His handiwork and from this awareness came the first basic principle Monotheism True Religion deals principally with the why of our existence Consequently this led to the making of laws in which stood ethical concerns and morality The greatest triumphs of pure monotheism were the notions of universalism and ideals of social justice even though they are hardly attainable It gave Western civilization the recognition of values such as individualism and nationalism As a result governments were created to protect the life and freedom of individuals with decrees that regulated economic social and political life of a community Since God created nature but was not in it men began to understand natures unpredictable changes This gave birth to the second core principle Reason Rational analysis and logic deal with the how of our universe It resulted in the emergence of science and technology The achievement of reason allowed considerable progress to be made in the Western world and gave rise to the industrial society Thus men invented products to meet their needs and eventually dominated their environment It provided the West with health better life
