The first views on which they thought the Italian states should unify was by Giuseppe Manzini and Victor Emmanuel ii. Manzini thought that Italy could only be strong if it unified as a single nation and as a republic. Emmanuel ii also believed that Italy should unify and be a republic because it would increase their strength as a nation. Then there was the views from Vincenzo Gioberti and Daniele Manin. Gioberti believed that Italy shouldn’t unify because it would take freedom and independence away from the kings, this would cause more foreign invasions and civil wars.
As a product of the Revolutions of 1848, European sentiment towards Nationalism grew extensively among the middle and lower classes. European ethnic groups and nations desired a self-determined state that represented their group and culture. As a result, both Germany and Italy would experience unification movements within several decades. By 1871, the Italian states would be unified under the Italian tricolour flag; and in the same year, the German states would become integrated into Germany under Wilhelm I of Prussia. Nationalism is both a political and social system in which the nation-state is of utmost importance -- in which nation-states act in their own self-interest and are of full sovereignty.
Nora finally seeks indaendance from Helmer "you're not the man to help me with that, I ust do that alone". Nora experiences somewhat of an enlightenment reflecting on how she has been treated in life: "he called me his doll-child... I went rom Daddy's hands to yours". Helmer is blind to how his controlling behaviour has had the oppiste effect and has forced Nora from him. However it is important to condier the context of the 19th centuary society and its social norms.
An example of a child growing up in the world thinking there is only one appropriate way to do the right thing is Huck Finn. In the novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn written by Mark Twain, Huck has a hard time realizing that in order to make himself happy, he needs to do things he was taught not to do. For example Jim and Huck meet and decide to run away together, never in a million years did Huck think he was going to help a runaway slave. Throughout his adventure, Huck realizes that everything he thought might be wrong, so he chooses what he thinks is right. Mark Twain used an emphasis on showing the difference between right and wrong in an adults point of view, and a child 's point of view.
However with Atticus’s guidance we start to see the improvement in Scouts ability to “walk in peoples shoes.” Later Scout starts to empathize with Boo Radley. Once described as a “malevolent phantom”(9) who's property was never dared to be stepped on, is now the friendly neighbor who has gifted them little trinkets. "I sometimes felt a twinge of remorse, when passing by the old place, at ever having taken part in what must have been sheer torment to Arthur Radley - what reasonable recluse wants children peeping through his shutters, delivering greetings on the end of a fishing-pole, wandering in his collards Pelteku 3 at night”(278)? Empathizing with Boo Radley is where we could successfully compare her
In Chapter two of Edelman ‘No Future’ (2004) ‘sinthomosexulaity’, Edelman examines Ebenezer Scrooge in the Christmas Carol (1843). Scrooge’s character plays no attention to the political economy of reproduction not following the normative social subjects. Scrooge becomes pressured by society in order to change which puts pressures on his queerness, Edelman expresses ‘Christmas here stands in the place of the obligatory collective reproduction of the Child, the obligatory investment in the social precisely as the order of the child’ (Edelman, 2004: 45). Thus, Edelman proposes that he supports the acts that Scrooge is making because he likes that he is anti-social and it is suggested that he goes as far as to praise Ebenezer Scrooge’s original

In the passage “Peter Pan, they had a decision to go on the adventure they were on but in the Passage “Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz”, they were just thrown in a situation without a decision and didn’t have botheration.

This is also portrayed when Mrs Cratchit and Belinda Cratchit are described as being ‘brave in ribbons’. Peter Crachit the family’s eldest son is wearing ‘Bob’s private property’ in ‘honour of the day’ which even ‘nearly chocked him’, again indicating the family does not have excess money to buy new clothes for occasion and are most probably on a tight budget for essential requirements only. We learn the family comprises Bob Cratchit, his wife and their six children, this means a lot of mouths to tend for, for a not so wealthy family. However, as there was no form of contraception during the time, this was the case for many families in Victorian society. Despite this, the family still tend to their best efforts with their Christmas dinner.
In "The Lottery", nobody in the village possesses the skills required to lead each other, and thus relies on a luck based "lottery" to decide who shall be killed. However, in "Desiree's Baby", Armand is able to use his intellect and opinions to reach a conclusion that will benefit himself, which was to exile Desiree to prevent her from soiling his family reputation and therefore his entire life. Nonetheless, while themes of survival are heavily displayed in both of the stories, themes of tradition are equally expressed as well. In both "Desiree's Baby" and "The Lottery", the message of how society is unable to willingly change their traditions and beliefs is conveyed through the multiple underlying elements of story. While each story possesses a few similarities, the contrasting story elements each author uses creates significant
