The question of right and wrong has been battled over for centuries Many conservatives still believe that truth is absolute while others disagree saying that truth is relative I believe that truth is absolute and therefore it is never right to do wrong Socrates is questionably the greatest philosopher of all time He preached out against immorality and many other evils He spent his whole life teaching other people how to be good and moral In the Crito he is imprisoned and awaiting his death sentence for misleading the youth of which he has been wrongly accused Crito his friend comes to visit him in jail and they have a long conversation which is the Crito Socrates and his friend could have fairly easily broken out of the prison because many of the guards looked up to Socrates and didnt wish to see him killed Socrates made the point that if he were to leave jail he would be breaking the law Even though he had been wrongly accused and sentenced to death for no reason he couldnt go against his own teachings or else his whole life would have been in vain He knew that if he didnt escape he would die and would orphan his two children however no matter how much he loved Steve Weber-2 them he wouldnt contradict his teaching by doing wrong Even though Socrates wasnt perfect he would always make a conscious effort to do right Breaking out of jail would be blatantly wrong and he couldnt bring himself to do it Adolf Hitler is directly and indirectly responsible for more deaths than almost anyone in history Over six million Jews alone were killed because of his death camps In The Plot to Kill Hitler a group of German officers and many others formed an underground society to try and kill Hitler Most people would agree that what they were doing was okay
