Stereotyping is an issue that has been going around the world and causing minor and major conflicts in society. It is agreeable that it is morally unacceptable. For written task 1, I felt the desire to combine two interesting aspects in either part 1 or 2, I have always been fascinated by propaganda but primarily it is the stereotyping I wanted to get in to. Not because the phenomenon interests me, but because I like thinking about its effect on society, since it is a very intimidating, though accepted, occurrence. In this written task, I wanted to present these thoughts, I did this by writing a speech, done by a man called Paul Carter, a former historian, now overwhelmed by the idea of making the world a better place, he is most likely frequently
“2081” tells an inspiring story of change and rebellion against oppression, lead on by the embodiment of hope and the human spirit while “Harrison Bergeron” serves as a reminder of the dangers of restricting potential in the name of protection. Both Vonnegut and Tuttle tell the same story, but the tone of the ending is altered by changing seemingly insignificant details to influence the way the audience percieves the events of the story. Audiences of both can easily agree that the emotions inspired by the two different works are very different. Although the integrity of the plot and the dialogue is almost comepletely untouched, the message and theme are undoubtedly the works of two different people, proving that there are truely two ways to tell the same
People define the American Dream on the base of their necessity and wisdom. Thomson and his attorney made the journey of Vegas to find their American Dream.

Thomson describes that the excessive use of drugs and alcohol, which made easily distract to immigrant from their real goal of American Dream.

Thesis: Sophocles, in Antigone says, if we cannot control our fate we should live with the wisdom to focus on bettering ourselves as individuals, in order to obtain happiness no matter the unpredictable circumstances; by willing to yield to the helpful opinions of others, and putting our pride aside. Once someone begins to carry themselves with pride, it begins to lay a ground of irrationalism and arrogance in the way one thinks and processes, causing people to get hurt. Creon in the beginning of the play carries himself in a high and mighty manner in order to show his kingdom that he’s a fit ruler. This leads him to become blinded to the reason of others and causes him to make irrational decisions. Creon continues to ruin himself and those
For the past hundred years, the music industry has made a lasting impact on American culture. Today, music is played almost everywhere you go and different artists seem to be popping up left and right. Competition for record labels, venues, and advertisement agencies have increased as the music industry becomes one of the most profitable industries in the world today. Drawn to the fame and fortune that the music industry flaunts, many musicians undergo years of musician training in hopes of success. However, due to the fluctuating environment of the music scene and the emphasis on connections rather than music talent, musical training will make success in music more obtainable, but ultimately makes a minimal impact.
‘Music is more than an object of study: it is a way of perceiving the world. A tool of understanding’ (Haynes 2012, p.g 31). The power of music is indisputable. It can completely reshape not only the way we view the world, but our everyday thoughts and actions. It has the power to inspire great revolutions, to be the catalyst to social and political change and to ignite the spark of social consciousness even within those who live apolitically.
Words from “Self- reliance” by Emerson that talks about conforming to society is, “I read the other day some verses written by an eminent painter which were original and not conventional. The soul always hears an admonition in such lines, let the subject be what it may. The sentiment they instill is of more value than any thought they may contain. To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, — that is genius.”(Emerson, 245) this quote is talking about how we if we don't use our own originality then we won't reach enlightenment because of the word admonition it was used in this quote as a moral failure to get to enlightenment. One of the many examples of how we are not being original, are reboots of old movies.
There’s a huge music scene down there centered around our culture. Those are people that are not making music for a living. They are making music for the fun of it. And I think that’s the best way I could have been introduced to music.” Haster Hays. I relate to this quote because it tells how music has a big impact on our lives.
Musically, Bach was the master at invoking and maintaining different emotions. He also inspired more and more musicians to be involved in their works and thus created more musicians and movies that have helped their lives. Some of Bach’s most famous works were Bradenburg Concerto No. 3, Well-Tempered Clavier, Ave Maria, and Sheep May Safely Graze. As you can see Bach’s life was filled with prosperous music and he had a large influence on musicians which influenced more
The only way to break these spell is to make new agreements based on truth, because the truth will set us free. Gossip or “mitote” is mixed up with many conflicting messages, it’s learned and agreed with at a very young age because it’s a normal form of communication in our society. It makes us feel better to see someone else feel as badly as we do. “Misery likes company” (Ruiz 38). We are infected with and contagious to others with fear and suffering.
The film does well in highlighting how corporate america views homes as nothing more than dots on a map, ready to be reclaimed, and families as simply removable. Forgettable. It is in the most unembellished scenes of home-owners pleading with policemen to give them more time. Of men and women calling lawyers that can no longer help them. Of people surrounded by bank statements and court documents that all lead to the sad conclusion that their homes will be taken.
