However, the severity of punishments and the methods used by the law were beneficial and practical and they helped to reduce the amount of crime in England. The article “Crime and Punishment in the Elizabethan Era” expresses that crime was an issue in Elizabethan England, and a threat to the stability of society. To maintain order the penalties for committing minor crimes were generally punished with some form of public humiliation. For major crimes including thievery, murder, and treason those convicted were put to death. The sheer ruthlessness of the punishments discourage any sort of crime as they will scare the citizens into never breaking the law in fear of the consequences.
As explained in lecture 3 most accusations made were the poor people accusing the wealthier people. This part wasn’t a huge factor in the movie, though. I think this is because the storyline of a forbidden love is more interesting to viewers than just poor people blaming the wealthy. One thing I noticed that was relevant in the movie is the accusation pattern discussed in lecture 3. The pattern is if the accused was found guilty they would be executed unless they confessed to being a witch.
The silver screen plays a big role in portraying how the audience understands and thinks about mental illnesses. It is then important that movies and media properly represent mental illnesses to avoid the further creation of stigmas and wrongful opinions about some common, as well as rare disorders. One mental disorder was particularly and interestingly pictured in a very touching and relatable movie: Paul Greengrass’s Captain Phillips. Powerful scenes depict the effects of suffering an event no one would want to go through, leading to Captain Phillips, brilliantly played by Tom Hanks, suffering from severe post traumatic disorder. Further details about this disorder will be presented below, along with the movie’s portrayal of the illness and
The intent of this movie was fulfilled by showing the audience the points he was addressing. The writer showed the cruel violence that was happening in Los Angeles and how no one on the outside seemed to know or even care about what was going on in the hood. The way the movie was produced showing a majority of the focus from Tre Styles point of view was helpful in letting the viewers understand how it is to live in the hood from someone’s perspective. There was two particular scenes in the movie that I felt was key to the development and understanding of the film. The first one was the scene where Tre’s dad Furious Styles takes him and Ricky to this billboard that is advertising “Cash for your home”.
William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Julius Caesar and Jimmy Breslin’s article, “The Fear and the Flames” are very similar even though they were written during two very different time periods. Both writers revealed how people sometimes respond to the assassination of public figures. Breslin wrote about the events in Washington, D.C. following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Shakespeare noted the events following Julius Caesar’s assassination in Rome. These two men were very respected leaders in both societies that very few did not like. In both writings, the citizens reacted in similar ways by innocent people getting hurt, looting businesses and breaking things also known as vandalism, and fire and burning also known as arson.
This carefree feeling mostly came with the influence of alcohol and the sense of freedom it came with. In daisy’s actions you clearly see that if prohibition would have worked out, Gatsby wouldn’t have been able to throw this major parties that attracted the people he wanted to come. This situation was very common because of liquor, people were cheating and abusing their spouses and that’s why prohibition was put into action. Passing prohibition laws were intended to prevent these incidences but actually made them worse. Daisy wasn’t the only one guilty of cheating under the influence, Tom was one of the worst cases.
Arithmetic is more enjoyable to an audience. Although the movie did have some interesting additions and removals, the book was far more appealing to a general audience than the movie. One of the first reasons for why the book is better than the movie is because of the characters. In the movie, they removed Yitzchak and Reuven. These are very important characters in the story.
The Success of Nonviolent Action “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable” (John F. Kennedy). Today, citizens of the U.S have many ways of voicing their opinions on issues or arguments, such as social media. But many of those methods do not have a good effect on the issue or argument being made. In today 's society, civil disobedience and nonviolent action are the most beneficial for protesting against injustice towards minorities.

Firing Squad Over Lethal Injection Many people think that inmates who are death row need to be put to death by means of lethal injection. However, there are many reasons why a firing squad should be used instead. It is actually more humane, less costly, and the odds of something going wrong are much less than a lethal injection. The first reason of it being more humane, makes more sense looking deeper into the idea.
There are many opposing views pertaining to this argument, but if everyone was just able to come to an agreement; the world would be a better place.
