It is impossible to quite the ethos that are left behind. Once the tongue is loosed, it never has to be silenced. The will of a person will prevent the tongue from being tamed. The will of a person such as Gloria Anzaldúa, who although punished for speaking in her native tongue and rebuked for it, pursued speaking it in rebellion to all other voices. I myself have experienced this where I used to be cautious with letting my tongue free, but now that I have set it free, nothing can stop me from proclaiming my beliefs.
Another reason why violence is used to protect someone’s loved ones is that when Elias got hurt trying to protect Lars’ wife and daughter from the explosion Christian and Elias planted earlier. Christian felt responsible for what he did, so he tried to commit suicide, but Dr. Anton was came in and intervened. To protect someone, violence doesn’t need to be used. You can just stop messing with the bully and they’ll eventually
The Dangers of Following Traditions Blindly Why do people follow authorities and traditions blindly without reflecting upon what they are doing? The two short stories, The Lottery by Shirley Jackson and Examination Day by Henry Slesar, are perfect examples of societies that don’t question what they are doing because killing a person is rather an uncivilized and barbaric act. People will often be cruel when following traditions, beliefs, religion, or authorities. Thus, in the two short stories The Lottery and Examination Day, the authors are indirectly warning the reader about the dangers of not questioning authorities or traditions, and how we tend to be sheep that simply follow and don’t question. In The Lottery, the characters of the story follow traditional ideas, however they do not inquire about these ideas that are not moral at all.
In her memoir I am Malala, explains the hardships she had to endure before and after she was shot by the taliban even though all she did was stand up for education. In the memoir, Malala illustrates that her father always treated women fair. There was no difference between men and women other than the roles they adopted in their culture. Malala’s father set a solid foundation of equality very early in Malala’s life. This foundation is the reason why Malala has traveled around the world emphasizing the need for equal education.
Although everyone will “call [Huck] a low-down Abolitionist and despise [him] for keeping mum,” it does not matter to him because he will keep his word (55). His choice of running away with a slave goes against his society’s beliefs and what he was taught. In Transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson’s “Self-Reliance,” he stresses the importance of non-conformity. Although Huck knows he will be seen as an abolitionist, and therefore corrupt, he follows his instincts. Emerson emphasizes, “what I must do is all that concerns me, not what the people think...It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion...but the great man is he who
A number of Americans have recently suggested that the protest of football player, Colin Kaepernick was extremely wrong. At first glance, it does seem a little rude, and even offensive to people, but his reasoning behind doing it was strong. He refuses to stand up and represent a country and flag that still oppress people of color. America is regressing with equality and control over citizens, that’s not always the citizens fault, if people are treated poorly or a group is being attacked, people are going to react accordingly; and he has the power to speak out and stand up for the people that cannot. Yes, there are other ways that he could have protested and voiced his opinion, but either way, no matter how he did it, people would have gotten
To really get real with yourself in a sense that you know, life isn 't going to be handed to me. I have to prove that I am worth the life that I want and as I do this I will begin to bring forth my desires and dreams will begin to come true. You have to fight for your future, You have to fight for your success, you have to fight for your financial freedom, you have to fight for your education, and you have to fight to win in life. The brutal and honest truth is.. Life will never give a penny more than what you ask of it. If you arent ' willing to put forth the effort, you will never succeed.
The article states, “Gun control deters violent crime as well as the death penalty” (Hunter). The author uses logos here to point out that gun control is an ineffective as the death penalty when it comes to preventing violence. This supports his argument against strict gun control because, according to Hunter, many Liberals claim to oppose the death penalty because it does little to prevent future crime, yet Liberals are for strict gun control. However, strict gun control isn’t going to prevent criminals from committing crimes, because criminals do not follow the law
I must admit that being born in 1995 is the best. My parents protected me from all those bad people in the world, heck they even protected me from myself. They made sure that my friends and I never felt bad about losing. This is why they changed the rules when it came to children’s sports. No longer would any child have to suffer the humiliation of being yelled at by a parent because they were to busy focusing on which flower to pick rather than chasing a soccer ball while playing soccer.
In my speech today I would like to talk about gun violence in America and why i think that gun control will be a bad idea to support . Guns don’t Kill People ! People Kill People . Gun control does nothing to control criminals because when you ban guns from people the criminals will always have ways to get guns ! What we really want as people is to ban violence and murder and insanity , because we all know deep in our heart that violence murder and insanity is build in human condition that we don 't talk about.
The responsibility was laid out to them clearly, but the decision to downplay this massacre would lead to events soldiers wished never happened. By omission and commission, they suppressed reports of the incident and submitted false or misleading accounts to higher headquarters. (My Lai Massacre) By suppressing the news of the massacre, Calley and his fellow officers just dug themselves a deep hole. Surely they should have expected the cause and effect from this small decision. Even if those claims made by Calley about the massacre were incorrect, since international law and the military code of conduct expressly forbade the killing of civilians, it was still the responsibility of the chain of command to ensure that Calley knew those policies.
They must work harder and not be afraid to lead the group. A leader must be willing and ready to not only give orders but receive them. The group cannot thrive with a leader who does not adore what they do. The leader must be devoted and excited about what they do. A leader can have respect from every single member of the group but without the
King always encouraged the fair treatment of all people no matter what the color of their skin was. Everyone should follow this teaching. Dr. King dreamed that all his children would one day live in a nation where all people would be judged by their character and not by the color of their skin. In my school and community today, there are students and people who are different from one another because they come from different countries and cultures. There are Hispanics, Caucasians, and Asians who come to my school who look very different from each other.
These are the regulation who 's a punishment imposed for breaking the law would not bring upon oneself from the gods through man’s temper. At the current scene, Creon’s ruling the government banning the tradition of honoring the loss in your family is too extreme which can affect the citizens in Thebes because what if the citizen’s members did make erroneous to the country before death, yet still deserve a respectful burial and honor them and lastly they may disagree with the law
This policy is directed toward private troubles because it’s aimed at individual homeowners and not all fires that occur on properties. Since “Fires in the West” places blame on the victim it focuses on worthy and unworthy. The worthy would be those that take additional precautions such as creating a fifty yard fire zone because they did not create the fire. It is believed that the unworthy would be those that do not take extra steps to ensure a travesty doesn’t occur at their residence because they created the fire in essence. Residual approach also applies in the articles because the policy limits those who are helped which becomes a private issue and no longer fire safety on the community, which is a public issue.
