Elie Wiesel’s Night should not be banned from the book list for ninth grade because it is a book that teaches very important lessons despite the fact that it contains violent scenes. The book shows that we should treat people in a good way even if they are not like us. It reveals the horrible consequences of inhumanity, the meaningless suffering and unbearable pain of innocent people. These reasons show that the book is very important for the grown-ups because it deals with fundamental questions about humanity and moral values. This book should not be banned even though it portrays so many violent moments because it shows us the horrible reality of racial prejudice and discrimination.
This is an important concept because it explains that officers should not follow society and pressure from the public and media but follow the laws that our country. This a good thing to have when dealing with persuasive criminals and individuals. Both officers and civilians benefit from this principle because it protects both parties. Officers also need to know the laws, so they can stay away form trouble and not be deceived by public persuasion. This is a good thing to have in America today, because many criminals will say anything to get out of punishment.
This quote shows that he wants everyone to obey him and anyone who disobeys him will get in trouble. The last support can be found when Creon said, “But he who crosses law, or forces it, or hopes to bring the ruler under him, shall never have a word of praise from me.” (Antigone 23). This means that Creon is “madly in love” with his power and thinks that he can do anything because he is the king. The second tragic fall of Creon
An egoist is defined as “A doctrine that individual self-interest is the valid end of all actions.” So somebody who has a really big ego, is often very selfish. The society within the book Anthem by Ayn Rand forbids anyone to have an ego. Meaning everybody has to be the same. Prometheus, the main character, discovers what it means to have an ego. This makes him different from the rest.
He thinks that everyone needs to be the same, do the same things and not do anything different than what you are ‘supposed’ to be doing. The people in the book move too fast and don’t pay attention to the little things in life that turn out to be some of the most important things. "We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made equal. Each man the image of
Vonnegut talked about the issue of fatalism by having Billy do everything he saw happen when traveling to the future in the same order so he couldn't change the outcome even if the outcome would have been better. For example Billy knew exactly when he was going to die and how he was going to die and he still did everything the same letting himself be killed when he could have just stayed home that day and not have been killed. Vonnegut believes everything happens for a reason. The last point Vonnegut is trying to get across is the issue of free will. He is against free will, he believes people shouldn't be able to choose between different outcomes.
When he becomes king of Thebes, he proposed a law that commenced the plot in the first place. His law, “...forbids anyone to bury him [Polynices], even mourn him.”(Antigone, Line 34). While this is a justifiable law, it contravened “...the great unwritten, unshakable traditions [Zeus’ laws].”(Antigone, Line 505). Antigone transgressed the law; her reason was that Zeus’ law is more powerful than Creon’s law. Creon thinks that the people will think of him as a liar if he lets Antigone free.
As human being we have been taught that death is the demon at the end of the path, place there to hunt us down, ending our journey here on earth. Depending on the believe that each person follows, death could be the end of your persona or the release of our soul to a better place. For generation the thought of death have been a tabu. All over the globe people are afraid of the word, and try to divorce themselves from every topic related to it. As well as death, suffering is a word must people are no comfortable discussing, the necessary amount of suffering a human being needs to build itself, is never share within the different communities surrounding the planet.
Hamlet's actions after learning this information shoes truly how unforgiving, steadfast, and has lost all care for even those he once called friends by changing his name in the warrant to the names of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. This deceit made by Hamlet upon his friends was Huff 3 intended to keep himself alive and could be in a way, sending a message to Claudius that he’ll do whatever is necessary in order to stay alive and kill him. All of these events that transpire throughout the story all derive from the one lie
Everyone makes mistakes in life, some are excusable and some are not. Thomas Hobbes felt that if there were no contract then people would just act on instinct- rape, pillage etc- human beings in their natural state are inclined to war and distrust. There is a reason why we have the prison system, so that criminals pay for their actions and to protect the people. He states he has a wife that is expecting and two kids on the way. If he is a good and harmless guy as he states he is then it would never cross his mind to being involved in an
All in all, you have to negotiate and come to the best most logical solution to keep everyone from killing each other. Everyone has their own opinions and views, but personally I believe that, the reason so many individuals believe that the flag is used as a symbol of hatred/ racism is because that’s what they have been taught and told their entire lives. History isn’t black and white, there are so many things that NO ONE knows the actual full blown truth behind. But instead of assuming and acting like we were there and know exactly what happened, maybe we should research and actually learn our history instead of turning nothing into something and causing more problems. Finally, no I do not believe that the flag is a symbol of hatred or racism, but I do believe that some individuals do believe that, that’s what the whole history of the flag is based on.
He was raised according the morals of society on the reservation, which could not be more different from the way people are conditioned in the Brave New World. The conditioning makes the citizens of Brave New World absolutely disgusted by old age, injuries and families (153). In the same vein, John was disturbed by the science of the Brave New World such as all of the twins created through the Bokanovsky process. Simple differences such as these between John and the people of the Brave New World guaranteed that he would never be able to truly belong in that society. This is reflected by the fact that John was always referred to as “the Savage” or “Mr.
In it, he talks about how inequality has reached the point where they cannot say anything else to gain freedom, and that they need to take action. He says, “We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed” (2). They had fought for their rights, and they even had laws for them at this point in history, even if people were not following them. However, as he states, the freedom will not be voluntarily given. It will be
