‘Positive characters … usually prove miserably ineffectual when contending with ruthless overwhelming powers’ claims Amin Malak, noting on such protagonists as Winston Smith and Offred in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four and Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, and, when looking at the dystopian genre as a whole, he certainly seems to be correct. Dystopian fiction does seem to portray the worse side of human nature than the better, leaving the positive traits to the struggling protagonists. While utopian writers seemed to think that the essence of human nature was to do good, dystopian writers seem to think very differently and it is from this notion that these novels seem to be written. Nineteen Eighty-Four certainly seems to do this, with almost every member of the society representing one or more negative aspects of humanity. Throughout the novel, Winston constantly references the fact that ‘Today there were fear, hatred and pain’ and that in this society of Ingsoc ‘No emotion was pure, because everything was mixed up with fear and hatred’ and this is displayed in many, various ways.

My result was INTP-t (The Logician) which means I tested positive for Introversion, iNtuition, Thinking, and Perceiving. The strengths of INTPs are great analysts, abstract thinking, imaginative, original, open minded, enthusiastic, objective, as well as harsh honesty. The weaknesses of INTPs are that they are very private and withdrawn. Frequently considered insensitive or condescending. They can be absent minded, have an absolute loathing of rules, and be super indecisive by constant second guessing of themselves.
P’s become R’s or F’s. (There are no Rs on the standard eye chart, but many people see them there.) The letters O, Q, and C are confused with one another. Most people learn that they have astigmatism when they are examined to determine the cause of blurred vision. Hard contact lenses have a spherical front surface that bends the light.
We were liars is a story about the ideals we are all supposed to aspire to, simply because of the way our society defines success; as being forceful, reckless, hasty and bold. The dauntless ideal Cadence falls prey for. In my opinion the book is trying to shed light on the insidious backside of our idea of heroism, and the too often gruesome consequences it might bring. That it more frequently than not results in the unnecessary suffering of others. Cady’s cousin Mirren on the other hand, had a very different life motto: ”Always be kinder than you have to”.
And as well as experiencing altering combinations of symptoms, because some people will have mild symptoms while others will have severe ones. With the word spectrum, people with autism spectrum disorder may have challenges that may run the range from mild to severe, with different levels of ability and disability. Even though there are positive or advantages of having an autism spectrum disorder or ASD, there are still some disadvantages of having it. People on the autistic spectrum face many issues, from the continuous challenge of trying to be comfortable with others, to the irritation that they are not able to express how they feel, to the devastating anxiety because they cannot make sense of what is happening around them. As stated in the site of Weebly (2016), some of the disadvantages of
These people who fought in a war for God, because it was his wish, risking their lives, and there are people who rarely even pray to God before they go to bed at night. These people have to claim that they believe in God and follow church rules, however, their behavior, such as not praying before dinner, is considered hypocrisy. The author could be using guilt as a way to persuade people to move away from hypocrisy and put their faith in God. The author’s motive might have been to help decrease the increase in hypocrisy. A third motive the author of “Capture of the Christian ‘Navel of the World’” would
3:16-17). Baxter correctly highlighted the primary duty of minister in correcting those disobedience or rebellious flock – “To bring your people to submit to this course of private catechizing or instruction; for, if they will not come to you, or allow you to come to them, what good can they receive?” However, when we look at today’s congregation, especially old believers, their mindset had changed – though at the beginning of salvation, they humbly followed all the minister’s instructions diligently for their soul’s healing, but after sometimes, they hardened their heart to any kind of pastoral treatment as though they are superior than their shepherd. They will not come to us and will not allow us to come to

INFLUENCE OF THE BIBLE ON GANDHI’S ETHICS Dr Sheeba Himani Sharma Department of English St. Andrew’s College, Gorakhpur firstname.lastname@example.org Abstract It is worth noting that Christianity influenced Gandhi to an extent that he followed most of the teachings of Jesus Christ found in the New Testament but an acceptance of the same was hindered by the conduct of the Christians. Inspite of the fact that Gandhi was greatly influenced by the life of Jesus Christ he could never accept Christianity even though he loved and respected the teachings of the Bible. Keywords: Jesus Christ, Bible, Gandhi, Sermon on the Mount During his studies in England, Mahatma Gandhi became interested in the Christian faith. He had been reading the Bible to keep a promise he had made to a friend. He had difficulties understanding the Old Testament because in it, “he found out so much that he could not reconcile with the bidding of returning good for evil.” He was studying for the bar exams in London when he was given the New Testament to read.
