Explaining his reasons, he declared that the government was treacherous for signing the Treaty of Versailles, which many Germans agreed on, and explained that the clear communist threat in Germany had to be eliminated. The judges were impressed and sentenced him to serve five years in a minimum security prison and a 500Reichsmark fine. This verdict was criticized by many newspapers afterwards. Hitler spent his sentence in a comparably pleasant prison in which he was allowed communication with the outside. However, he ended up being released after 9 month for good
Revolution tried to debunk the ox trick, but Mubarak and his entourage were clever enough to outmaneuver them and aborted any attempt of political reform. Because they lacked sufficient experience and a clear vision, it was foretold that they would be imprisoned and received punishment as terrible as that of Prometheus, while “Mubarak 's generals and policemen who have the last laugh” (Alexander). Aeschylus’s Prometheus Bound Whether the trilogy of Prometheus Pound, Prometheus Unbound and Prometheus the Fire Bringer were written by Aeschylus or not (Ruffell 14-5), Prometheus Bound reflects both a rebellious spirit and a belief in human progress. Though Prometheus was against the tyrant, they were eventually reconciled. In Aeschylus’ trilogy,
Epistemic Knowledge -what is it and why is it important? Epistemic knowledge is a knowledge of building knowledge itself, the crucial components of involved in the process of building knowledge and the capacity of justifying the knowledge produced by science such as a hypothesis, a theory or an observational claims(diSessa, 1993; Duschl, 2007). Epistemic knowledge plays a paramount role on how we know what we know. Such knowledge enables to understand the nature of science(diSessa, 1993). Understanding nature of science demands to identify scientific theory from hypothesis as well as scientific facts from observations (Hammer, 1994; Laudato, 2010).
This formulated an ideology which would consolidate the people. Socialism was ultimately deemed a failure, and then there was a third coup in 1988 to help keep the Burmese military in power. On paper, all of this seemed like a fine idea, but there were more than enough bumps in the road. People were starving, businesses were being watched like hawks. In 1962, Ne Win arranged a coup to gain control of Burma as a dictator until he resigned in 1988.
In the Harry Potter series, the prophecy claims that “neither can live while the other one survives”. Snape passes on the prophesy to Voldemort, which foretold of his defeat: linking Lord Voldemort & Harry. Snape was unaware that the prophecy was about Harry, Lily’s son. It was only when he realized the Voldemort planned to kill her that Snape defected to the side of Hogwarts headmaster Dumbledore. Snape’s revolt brought about all the penalties that Machiavelli warned about: the traitor holds nothing but fear, jealousy, suspicion & dread of punishment.
Family, friends, and possessions pressure individuals through the imposition of values that contribute to identity; we are told that we obtain our qualities simply by inheritance and association. The environment one chooses to surround themselves reflects similar learned behaviors and thought processes. Deviating from the norm is often contemptible, but natural, according to author Jon Krakauer. Realizing that he did not want to become a carbon copy of his parents and environment, Christopher McCandless wandered the American West for two years, as a nomad, to reject society as he knows it―his family, friends, and possessions. He burns his money, abandons his car, and cuts all ties with his family on an identity crisis that would lead to his death in the inhospitable Alaskan tundra.
Thus, the government's aim is to "kill" any kind of romantic emotions and imagination. In the "Fahrenheit 451" this is achieved by making the books completely banned, as they can deliver the ideas that cannot be controlled by the government. All of the books are meant to be burnt and people who read them are considered as mentally deranged. In the same way, in Yevgeny Zamyatin's novel, the government tries to exclude any kind of individual initiative by controlling the social life. There is an exact schedule for every person in this country, everything is made out of glass in order that there are not any secrets.
They answered that there was no price for which they would do it. Then he summoned those Indians who are called Callatiae, who eat their parents, and asked them what would make them willing to burn their fathers at death. The Indians cried aloud, that he should not speak of so horrid an act. So deeply rooted are these beliefs. (Hdt.
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” (Martin Luther King Jr.) Antigone takes the decision to resist Kreon, and insists on burying Polyneices. The act is something that brings her into a sharp conflict between familial duty based on divine law, and the commands of the king (Kreon). Leaving Polyneices unburied means that he becomes part of nature, as vultures and wild dogs will feed on him. “But his brother, Polyneices, the exile, who descended with fire to destroy his fatherland and family gods, to drink our blood and drive us off slaves, will have no ritual, no mourners, will be left unburied so men may see him ripped for food by dogs and vultures.” (Pg. 28).
The judges were empowered to try political cases without jury. The act in curtailed all the liberties of Indians in the name of curbing terrorist or anti- government activities. Mahatma Gandhi said, “They are striking demonstration of the civil services to retain its grip on our necks. It considers the bills to be an open challenge to us”. “Pandit Motilal Nehru said the essence of bills were no vakil, no dalil, no appeal.
