Randle was able to provide the male patients with more therapeutic care than their own professional nurses by just letting them express themselves. McMurphy was able to make an impact on the other characters, teaching them valuable lessons along the way. Lastly, McMurphy added the humor necessary to create entertainment, but kept the seriousness of the film. Had the character of Randle P. McMurphy not been created, the movie would not have been the same, the film might not have even been
In the two previous paragraph helps me understand that people will listen to people with power. I believe that power is something people will obey because they know if they don’t do it that something bad will happen. Power will make people act differently to others and people can see that. When you act different people can tell that something is going on. I wouldn’t want people know that I got a raise if they have been there longer than me.
Marzieh Ghiasi is a female Muslim college student who wrote a rebuttal to Levin 's Case for Torture where she uses logic to deconstruct his argument and prove that torture is not an acceptable practice. Both of their papers are good arguments and have great points to support them, but ultimately, I would say that Levin’s argument on torture being morally acceptable is the better argument. Levin uses many examples and devices to fill his article with Pathos as Ghiasi has a Logos approach but doesn’t have very many devices throughout her article to support her argument. Levin uses many hyperbolic situations that he uses to explain when and why torture would be acceptable.
Today our justice system has a multitude of options when dealing with those who are convicted of offenses. However, many argue that retributive justice is the only real justice there is. This is mainly because its advantage is that it gives criminals the appropriate punishment that they deserve. The goals of this approach are clear and direct. In his book The Little Book of Restorative Justice, Zehr Howard (2002), illustrates that the central focus of retributive justice is offenders getting what they deserve (p. 30).

Through out Bannan’s writing, she establishes the problem with privacy policies from the company which have connected devices. She explains about that data being collected without the users’ agreement from the company. For example, she points out that, “most people do not read privacy policies for every device they buy or every app they download, and, even if they attempted to do so, most would be written in legal language unintelligible to the average consumer.” Which leads to her concern about exploitation of the company’s privacy
I believe that all of us at some point doing wrongful behavior and breaking rules such as jaywalking. When reading this, I realize that I also use at least one of the techniques of neutralization to make me feel less guilty when doing any wrongful behavior. Besides, it makes me understand the usage of techniques of neutralization and realize on how important it is to take responsibility for our acts. I agree with the author’s conclusion that the continued use of neutralization and rationalization might weaken social bonds and reduce their need to use the techniques, over time. I think the more time you engage in doing deviant acts, the more ‘experienced’ you are, so you may received the label as deviant and because of that, you may not worried about what other people think about you anymore.
Having a positive attitude can make people less stressed during a time of conflict. According to the Clinical Practice and Epidemiology in Mental Health, “...optimists tend to use coping strategies that focalize on the problem more frequently compared to pessimists. When these strategies cannot be enacted, optimists resort to adaptive strategies that focalize on the emotions, for example, acceptance, humour and positive re-assessment of the situation.” Unlike pessimists, optimists are more equipped to unravel a dispute calmly and quickly. After people use healthy strategies, a conflict would not be as stressful as before.
Negative thoughts will make an individual more inclined to avoid others. In a study about the effects of positive thinking, the article reads, “When you practice positive thinking, a connection with other people happens more easily, as you are open to them, and not so concerned with your own stuff” (Diaz). In the excerpt of “Dear Miss Breed”, Louise Ogawa is able to gain confidence and stay motivated because of others positivity. The passage states, “If American soldiers can endure hardships so can we!" (Oppenheim).
Throughout this entire week, I have come to learn that memories are reconstructed when we remember them; however, this doesn’t make them fake, they are indeed real in my opinion. This is also my opinion on repressed memories. Repressed memories are real. Therapies in which therapist continue to suggest there’s “something else” (Loftus) are the reason why people doubt the authenticity of repressed memories. In the video False Memories, the study showing how subjectable people are to formulating false memories is astonishing and it proves just how easy it is to create fake memories.
The danger in believing this, is that the more broken a person becomes in your eyes, the less whole they will be, and upon throwing away the idea of humanity, morals are compromised in the pursuit of fulfilling a goal. It’s not a sacrifice, or a favor, to treat a person as your equal. I think people as a whole would benefit from learning ASL; it would open up a lot of opportunities to further connect with the people around you, and give a deeper appreciation for the way other people live. My thought process before was that the barrier between Deaf people and hearing people was insurmountable, but I have since learned that the barrier will only ever be as large as you decide it will be.
In conclusion, I believe that the theme communication is better than violence is the best lesson illustrated in The Outsiders, because physical harm doesn 't change anything, there 's no point in doing it, and it usually ends negatively for the participants. This relates to me because I think sometimes we get so frustrated with people that we don 't even think about talking it out, but really, it would help us resolve our problems more effectively if we communicated with each other. I definitely recommend The Outsiders to anyone who wants an action-packed book that teaches a
