Writing a problem of conscience

In our time, many people for everything, for money, social status, satisfaction of their own whims. Loss of moral qualities, bitterness is the inevitable result of such selfish behavior. Examples of such people are given

This is primarily Petr Petrovich Luzhin and Arkady Ivanovich Svidrigailov. And if in Svidrigailov we see at least belated, but repentance (helps the children of Marmeladov after the death of their mother, begs forgiveness from Dunya Raskolnikova), then Luzhin’s conscience has long been replaced by the concepts of “gain,” “calculation,” and “self-gratification.”

The protagonist of the novel Dostoevsky, unlike Luzhin, does not stand the test of conscience. Rodion Raskolnikov, having committed a horrible crime – murder, experiences terrifying mental anguish. His logical, reasoned theory about “the creatures of trembling” and “the right of having” crashes. And all this because conscience,

Only fully repent of the deed, after accepting penal servitude as a cleansing, and not a punishment for weakness (unable to withstand the emotional torments, the hero admits everything to the investigator), Raskolnikov humble and get calm.

But the conscience begins to torment the child immediately after the act is committed. He does not sleep well the night and is determined to confess in the morning, but does not have time. Grandma has already left for the city. Upon the return of my grandmother, Vitya wept bitterly and repented of her deed. And the grandmother is an example of true generosity.

Just wondering

Who among us in my childhood did not play catch-up and shouted loudly “Chur me.” Surely everyone, but not everyone knows that the exclamation “Chur!” has very ancient roots.
