He believed humans should spend their lives seeking to become the perfect versions of themselves in every way possible. Along with that Gandhi focused on this idea of “sainthood’, meaning someone who lives their life under God’s will. Author George Orwell disagreed with Gandhi’s opinions going so far as to write an article explaining why he disagreed. In this article, Orwell proves his argument that imperfections make people human by using a respectful tone, addressing Gandhi’s own argument, and using an anaphora. Just because you disagree with someone doesn’t mean you have to be disrespectful.
In the book “Anthem” by Ayn Rand there is a society where everyone is the same. The book starts out by introducing Equality 7-2521, a young man who doesn't understand why he can’t follow the same rules as others. In “Anthem” people were never taught the word “I” but “we” because they should not care about anyone than the people around them. In the book it explains many different characters that break the rules for their friends. Having friends, looking at girls, talking to girls is not allowed.
Granger says that all his group wants to do is “keep the knowledge [they] think [they] will need intact and safe.” This shows that this group does not simply fight against those who disagree with them. They live to preserve knowledge because they understand the importance of it. This greatly contrasts how the society itself reacts to those who disagree with the system. They fight, burn, and destroy anything they think is too
Proctor even told them he is not something to be used to help them, “you will not use me” (4, 699). Proctor will not allow the town to use his name to save themselves for killing all the innocent people before him. Proctor even pleads with them, “I have given you my soul; leave me my name” (4, 730). Proctor is saying how the integrity he has is only left in his name since his soul has been sinned. Another support is how John died for a reason.
Pollitt logically claims that, “The ultimate paradox of difference feminism is that it has come to the fore at a moment when the lives of the sexes are becoming less distinct than they ever have been in the West” (411). Pollitt’s logic is that we all seen how women have dominated roles that were considered just for men. Difference feminism claims that women are not entirely equal, when they actually are. Pollitt’s logic leads to the realization that difference feminism massages their ideas; they are not doing women any good.
In winsel’s speech he tills about how “neutrality helps the oppressor never the victim” silence encourages the tormentor never the tormented .wiesel keeps trying to repeat this speech his ideas because he does not want it to happen again. That he has lived to till everybody his story so that our nation’s history does not repeat.so we know what to do next time it happens. We will stand for the tormented and fight the tormentor. Wiesel is trying to relay this message to so we will do it because as he sated himself in his speech “if we forget them they will die a second time”. Which means that if we forget what happened during world war two and all the holocaust survivors and all they went through and what happened in that camp all the death .in some camps the atrocities that they did to get further in the war.so he wants us to remember the pain the death and the suffering that
And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion” (Washington, 1796). This statement is key because it displays how religious principals and characteristics promotes the protection for property, reputation, and life. Furthermore, without religion and its obligated principals, people will most likely abandon oaths, which are significant requirements in the justice system. Moreover, Washington wanted to express that if the people have integrity, honor, and commitment then they will be able to understand the meaning of respecting the laws and justice system. Also, how religion and its principles lead to the concept of morality and cannot be sustained without
“Self-Reliance” by Ralph Waldo Emerson and “Civil Disobedience” by Henry David Thoreau are two works that convey the ideas of Transcendentalism. In “Self-Reliance” Emerson says, “Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind.” He is stating that nothing is as important as a person’s own way of thinking and beliefs. Instead of listening to other people’s minds, people rightfully should make decisions based on their sacred thoughts. In “Civil Disobedience” Thoreau writes, “That government is best which governs least.” He is reinforcing the fact that people perform the best when not being told what to do and instead, following their instincts. If a government is over-involved in the people’s lives, it takes away the ability for the
For someone to fight another, he has to believe in something maybe he tries to protect his country, he tries to impose his race, he tries to free others, he believes his religion is the best, he thinks your way of doing things is wrong, or whatever is that he believes in; he has to believe in something if he is willing to fight for his belief than nobody should criticize him for trying to impose his authority or way of doing things, if others believe in another thing and it is worth fighting for than he will fight for his belief as well as the others will so they will fight each other and the one with a bigger desire will win.

Hope is provoked by something, by that desire of yours; and it can only be expressed with violence because it will show in your physical
