Kaira Mellix 10/8/17 Media and Popular Culture Midterm 1. Ideology The Philosophy of Death Note https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Y5QZ77-WYw What is justice? This specific ideology can mean something different depending on who you’re talking to. The textbook definition of justice is “the quality of being just; righteousness, equitableness, or moral righteousness.” Death Note is an anime that focuses on a young man named Light Yagami who becomes the owner of a notebook called the Death Note. This notebook has the power to kill any one by just writing their name and picturing their face. He adopts the name “Kira” as the God of this world he hopes to create. In the Philosophy of Death Note it discusses what this term means to two opposite lead characters. Light/Kira, who believes heavily in a Hammurabi’s Code-esque civilization. Whereas, his rival, L, believes in a more in a judicial type civilization with judges and juries. The two battles throughout the series in conflicting battle to find justice. In this (insert word), I will describe the viewpoints of both main characters and how they clash.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
