No matter where you are in the world everyone has rules and regulations that need to help people stay straight and narrow on the right path to what the person(s) need or want to accomplish in life. It may show in the out of ordinary places like walking down the road, or even may happen when you are at a special event, school is the most popular spot that linguistic rule and ordinances are mainly broken in the school conduct handbook or if you are a college student it may reside in the student handbook when you first start the journey to gaining valuable information to gain a career. In a student handbook there are specific rules that each individual needs to abide by like the clothing that is acceptable, the items that you may not bring on the school grounds or on the facility, and exhibits selective information regarding using someone's information in regarding plagiarism.

Students who copy and not completing their own achievements and only hurting themselves in the long run. When using an individuals work you are not using your own creative thinking and when you do your logical thinking can drop with every word you type or utter out of the mouth that is not your own creative logical thinking process. A student's ability after so long of using a persons work and using that work as your own the ability to complete a successful and clearly thought out paper of your own becomes next to nothing. I believe in my opinion that Walter Colton said it best about plagiarism
“Most plagiarists, like the drone, have neither taste to select, industry to acquire, nor skill to improve, but impudently pilfer the honey ready prepared, from the hive.” - Walter Colton
By not using the thinking gift that God has given each individual all that is being done in the process is cutting corners which is highly capable and much easier to do with the technology that we have now in the year 2013. An A+ paper can be given to an individual with a swipe of the keyboard with enough correct information and a credit card or debit card and with a click of the printer button you have a professional grade paper and all you have to do is put it into your own imaginative words and A paper comes to that persons way with no stress involved. The responsibility aspect would start to affect a student by losing a sense of duty when they do not do their schoolwork on their own. Students may feel that they need to do what it means necessary or not necessary to pass a particular class or classes. Whether or not the thoughts are on the paper or the individual is rational about putting those words instead of their own it is still plagiarism. In conclusion plagiarism is wrong and against the law which can lead to criminal charges, kicked out of school, and can cause a low self- esteem. Plagiarism is unethical and immoral and no good comes out of plagiarism. No matter what year or century you were raised or grew up in plagiarism will always be a rule or regulation not to break and still be considered Wrong!!!
