“All they asked for was loyalty and money for debt due to the war’ (Gregg 1). So therefore, the ones being unfair were the Colonists because all they had to do was pay taxes and be loyal to Great Britain. Another reason the Colonists wanted to depart from Great Britain is because the English King chose a judge and was sent to the colonies from London. So basically, the Colonists were British subjects and responded to a British judge. The Colonists argued that the British did not understand the life the Colonies lived, which would lead to poor judging by the British because they lived different lives.

This dialogue demonstrates how Richard’s desire to continue the story ignited his violent protest against his grandmother who was trying discipline and protect him. In the dialogue, Richard states that he knew to stay quiet but he protested anyway this shows that his desire to keep reading pushed him to argue with Granny. After Granny finished yelling at Richard and claimed he was going to hell, Richard explained, “ I vowed that as soon as I was old enough I would buy all the novels there were and read them to feed that thirst for violence that was in me, for intrigue, for plotting, for secrecy, for bloody murders. So
Declaratory Act The British colonies and America were bristling under the rule of Britain. They thought the rules and regulations of their government were unfair and left little behind to develop the respective countries. Britain implemented many Acts, including the Declaratory Act, during this time in the 1700s. The colonists eventually boycott them due to their severity. As such, many fought against such Acts, as they did the Stamp Act, which was eventually overturned.
The act was just the beginning of the reforms that began to make the colonists concerned about the intent of the Parliament. The Stamp act was the reform that made the colonists very angry though because it was the first internal tax levied directly on them by the government. The Stamp act was a direct tax on land titles, contracts, court documents, newspapers and all other paper documents in the colonies. The colonists heavily protested this act saying that it was “unconstitutional.” When Grenville, the prime minister, announced the law and asked for feedback, every colonial legislature protested and demanded it gone. Parliament refused to accept these petitions which caused further anger toward them from the colonists.

The use of censorship is significant in the novel, which is due to the government's role in people’s . As a way the government censors what they feel is not acceptable, they burn books which is illegal to own, to remove them, if any person such as the old lady that will not give their books, they are killed with the books that are burned. Uses of censorship in the novel prevented many people to have the different mindsets in that society, which reinforce the government's role in the way people perceive their information. To prove the concept, a character from “Fahrenheit 451”, Captain Beatty asserts, “We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made, equal.
The Effects Of Political Correctness On Our Generation George Washington once said, “If the freedom of speech is taken away then the dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to slaughter.” Our generation has one threat to free speech, which is political correctness. Censoring information for what is deemed as inappropriate or offensive is still censoring, wether for right or wrong.

This lead to students primarily speaking English; only using their native language at home or with extended family. Some Native Americans went as far as to outright refuse to teach their children their native language, in an attempt to protect them from similar hardships (Dick and McCarty). General Richard C. Pratt was the founder of the Native American boarding school system and was somewhat famously – or should I say infamously? – quoted as saying that his schools would, “kill the Indian to save the man” (Haynes 2). Navajo was one of the languages that was most heavily affected by the Native American boarding school system.
The colonists found these taxes so insulting that many of them refused to purchase British goods. These taxes eventually led to the creation of peace treaties such as the Olive Branch Petition. Britain’s attempt to destroy the colonial government was to pay Loyalists to insult the idea of a government. The Loyalists accomplished this by claiming it would make the citizens
The romantic concept of the “Noble Savage” was mainly embraced by those that did have direct contact with the Native Americans. Those who interacted with them continually saw them as inferior and lacking of common rights.
