Christophe defends himself by saying the sickness comes from God, as a punishment for their heathen behaviour. However, the Wendat are not easily converted. They refuse to believe that only man has an Orenda, they deem that everything has an Orenda. This presents a major conflict for Christophe. He must fend for his dogma against the wicked Gosling and her unholy followers.
Nietzsche’s ideas on hurting and benefiting others to control our power, our need to be correct, and the people we chose to show our power are all true. The House of the Scorpion’s cast of characters shows many ties to his ideas on power, especially the character El Patrón. His philosophy runs through the veins of our everyday lives, whether it be in hated societies or the allies of the top 1% of the world. Purposely seeking out power is not a negative characteristic if the person searching is motivated by intentions of well-doing instead of evil. Power is a complex thing that controls how we treat
However, these personalities can receive the criticism. In the other people’s eyes, this characteristic looks like egoistic mind. Thus, I always act cautiously and try to help others. On the other hand, the difference between Vision and me is behavior in the problem. Vision is rational and negative however, I am emotional and active.
His parents don’t like the idea that he follows different religions and even don’t like to talk about it. It’s as if he has disappointed them. I feel sympathy because who hasn’t ever disappointed someone close to them. Even small things we have done we seem goofy or even weird in front of people, this is how Pi is seen described by his parents. I feel sad for Pi.
Danforth responds saying “ I cannot hear you.” His response shows that he could not bear to hear the truth of the situation. The conflict in The Crucible could have had a different outcome, if Judge Danforth had seen through the facade that was presented to him. He was fed lies, beginning with Abigail’s wild stories. As people realized he was easily convinced, they used this to their advantage to take down people they did not like. Even after having his judgment questioned by people of the religious establishment he would still not face his arrogance and ignorance and make the trial
A quote from Krakauer I perceive how they both felt about the expectations their fathers wanted of them; “but I was not a clone of my father… Instead, I felt oppressed by the old man’s expectations.. The revelation that he was merely human, and frightfully, so beyond my power to forgive (148 Krakauer ).” And how McCandless could not accept how his father wanted to used money to get Chris to be someone that he is not or control him. Another example for the distaste towards authority, “Like McCandless, figures of male authority aroused in me a confusing medley of cork fury and a hunger to please... If something captured undisciplined imagination, I pursued it with a zeal bordering on a obsession, and from the age of 17 until my late twenties... (134 Krakauer
Creon’s tragic flaws are his stubbornness, foolishness, and egotism, which resulted in him not listening to what his son Haemon and the prophet Teiresias advised him to do and act solely based on his personal opinion. This clarifies why Antigone, who was engaged to Haemon, still was planned to be executed. Creon thought if he
A good example of this being a problem in Obi’s life is his argument with his father. Obi is torn between two worlds as his parents refuse for him to marry Clara, as she is an Osu, and it is against their culture. And his view that discriminating against people is not right. This attributes to one of the main themes of the book; Traditionalism vs Modernism. With Joseph, his mother and His father all disagreeing with him, Obi uses his education to dismiss them as he feels since he is educated, he must be correct, which is a prime example of his moral decay, in the sense that he does not respect his parents views and
This is illustrated when Mr Birling says, “Now look here, Inspector –”and the Inspector cuts him off with, “He must wait his turn.” The Inspector undermines Mr Birling’s authority over his own family, creating tension between them and fueling their ongoing feud for control. Mr Birling considers himself a well-respected man and he believes that he is too important to be investigated by the police. He feels that he should be treated with a higher degree of respect than other people. However, when the Inspector arrives, his authority and respect that he normally receives has vanished; not even his children listen to him and instead choose to listen to the Inspector. Mr Birling is greatly irritated by the Inspector’s intrusion and as the play progresses, the tension between them
He takes Haimon’s well-spoken remark, and turns it into an insult against his son’s age. This is something that a character lacking self-confidence would argue as soon as their motives are challenged. Confrontation should not insight insult, it should insight intelligent and respectful conversation. It might be slightly more normal to argue with your family over serious issues, but Kreon upholds his undesirable traits even when speaking to the world’s most renowned and respected seer of the future, Tiresias. Tiresias, old and blind, has a guide lead him to Thebes to tell Kreon that his actions have upset the gods, and that he must free Antigone and allow her to give Polyneices a proper burial (998-1032).
