(Morgan, 2005). Once the people receive refunds the just man gets nothing, while the unjust one makes a profit. People of higher class make more money, pay more into taxes and in the end get nothing back. Where people of lower class make less money, pay little in to taxes and receive a refund. Is this justice? I think that his arguments explain how things are in the real world. I do believe that people that have money or have power are rarely guilty, they use their money and power to become just in an unjustly manner. His argument about the taxes is very true. I know because I don’t make a lot of money and I am sure I pay way less than I should in taxes and because I have children I receive large refund. I understand that this is meant to help us poor people out but is it just? Even though I am some one that receives these refunds I don’t think it is fair that some people receive nothing or have to pay more. Even though doctors are looked up to and are known to have power in the way of our health, I think that doctors make errors I mean everyone makes mistakes. Whether or not it is related to a failure in their knowledge I am not sure. Every person is different and ever patient that a doctor comes into contact with will be different than the one before. Not everything a doctor runs into will be in a book.

I think this is the most ethical because this is something that should be looked at and maybe reevaluated. I agree completely with what he is saying in this argument. Ethically I don’t think they way taxes are handled is right.

At the same time, even for him, virtue depends on action. Explain the relationship between virtue and action for Aristotle, explaining in detail what virtue is and how a person can develop a particular virtue. According to Aristotle virtue is behaviors that show a person’s standards. Aristotle believes that a person should be defined by his character and his virtue, and not what the individual has done in his or her life. For an example we can look at any case where a person is put on trial for murder, or
