King does not believe in using violence to fight violence and uses ethos to appeal to the audience: "Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly" (King 65). This is similar to the saying that two wrongs don 't make a right. King is acknowledging that being violent to respond to violence is only going to cause more chaos which in terms is not right; he is thinking about consequence. Malcolm X 's speech is fueled with anger and rage. He cautiously avoids directly encouraging his audience to be violent but makes statements like: "I don '
This movie is about a neighborhood in Brooklyn and it is one of the hottest days they have had. Mookie is believer boy for Sal’s Pizzeria. The day starts off with everyone getting along with one another, but it soon turns into a very bad day. The one customer, Buggin Out, complains to Sal that there are no blacks up on his Wall of Fame. Another one of his customers, Radio Raheem, comes in and has his radio blasting.
With all the savagery that's occurring in our world today, from bombings in Syria, to shootings in our own backyards, it is time that we approach these problems from a different point of view. Instead of fighting violence with violence, fight violence with patience. Allow those committing violence to realize how absurd their actions are by showing them what actions they should be taking against something they don't agree with. Cesar Chavez reciprocates my thought. He acknowledges that our current strategy against violence has shown no real effect on the number of brutal acts committed against people.
Many think Malcolm X only preached violence and hate, others think of him as doing what was necessary. While he didn’t advocated peace, he helped to empower people to stand up for their rights. This was Malcolm’s goal and shows that he had good intentions. However, his good intentioned were covered up by his flaws. MAlcolm became a well known leader for race equality
He also want to make sure that there’s no threat to his part of the prophecy to be fulfilled. And that is when Macbeth starts to get really evil and starts to plot against his friend Banquo, whom the whole time has been loyal to Macbeth even though he have had his doubts. This is when Macbeth forsure has become Banquo’s opposite, because even though Macbeth and Banquo may have had the same thoughts about the prophecies, Banquo didn’t act upon them as Macbeth did. And that decision is what makes and breaks the two characters and what makes the each others opposites or
Eli Wiesel made sure he expressed his claim throughout his speech he showed that we shouldn’t divide others due to their race, religion, or political views. He also believed violence is not the answer and we should act on more peaceful solutions. Eli states that “violence is not the answer. Terrorism is the most dangerous of answers. They are frustrated, that is understandable, something must be done”.
They do not wish for a simple victory without fighting, but plea for horrible things to come to their opponents. In these lines from the messenger we get Twain’s personal view of imperialism. It seems as if Twain is the only one that realizes that everybody thinks that God is in favor for only their side. Due to the controversial aspects of this story, The War Prayer does not fall in line with the other national literature pieces that were read and discussed in class, which is why it is an excellent piece to add to the curriculum. It is its own unique version of national literature that focuses more on the issues of war rather than national
“To find yourself, think for yourself.” - Socrates Speaking out and knowing what you stand for will help you find your path and your voice. Throughout history, To Kill A Mockingbird, and our lives today, going along with the crowd and pushing aside individuality hasn 't helped anyone, or anything. Different views and opinions can help create a lot of beneficial change, but when no one is thinking for themselves, it is impossible for this to happen.
Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend’s book, It 's Not My Fault: The No-Excuse Plan for Overcoming Life 's Obstacles, it can be quoted, “We live in a culture of blame. People will blame anyone or anything for their misery sooner than take the responsibility to own it and make it better.” In simpler terms, people naturally would not take responsibility for their own actions and make it better, but instead put their fault onto someone else. The quote refers to the idea that blame is because of how people do not want their character to hurt, but would rather see others hurt. The mentioned quote completely agrees with the idea of Friar Laurence and Tybalt at fault.
"Macbeth has an inner fight between good and evil, when he knows what he is doing is wrong and hesitates to kill Duncan but in that fight the ambition was stronger than defeating the conscious of good, making him act impulsively killing Duncan rather than waiting and seeing the prophesy through. “In his emotional peroration he appeared to be entirely intent upon moving his will, and if his eloquence does not make a simple sense it makes a complicated sense” (Stein 1951). However, others may argue if he were not evil why, would he do it in the first place? Well, the war among good and evil was clear to him, but in a moment of ambition and insanity, anyone can make a mistakes. “Macbeth’s tragic actions is not willed by destiny, but is the result
The film Do the Right Thing, composed, coordinated and delivered by Spike Lee, concentrates on a solitary day of the lives of racially different individuals who live and work in a lower class neighborhood in Brooklyn New York. Be that as it may, this conventional day happens on one of the most sweltering days of the mid year. The film focuses on how social class, race and the ethical choices that the characters make directly affect the way individuals interface with each other. It begins with the film's characters awakening to begin their day and peaks with an area revolt after cops too much limit and kill a youthful dark man named Radio Raheem for battling a more seasoned Italian American eatery proprietor named Sal in his pizzeria, and afterward
If you ever want to start a debate on racial issues, just screen Spike Lee’s ‘Do The Right’ to a group of people. Right from the title of the movie the controversial messages start to bring out what someone really thinks on racial injustice. The movie shows racial tensions between groups in a neighborhood. Present in the film are the Italian pizza shop owners that have selectively opened their business in a black neighborhood, while having a racist son. There is the black protester who boycotts their business since the owners do not have any black legend’s placed up on their wall of fame.
to the disdainful and vainglorious individual that incited the ultimate showdown betweenRadio Raheem and Sal. The book Framing Blackness by Ed Guerrero, depicts “Do the Right Thing” as agreat movie, important for making everyday racism the object of attention for a littlewhile. However, it criticizes the film in a way that I wasn’t expecting. It seems to havecontempt for the piece in the sense that the author believes that Spike Lee was doing thesame thing with sensitive issues that Hollywood has always done.
