Having an open mind is another characteristic people turn to when contemplating what an ideal person is. It shows that one is open to new ideas, suggestions and can see the opposing side of an argument. Appreciation is given to those with this trait because it is easier to reach agreements on important matters by both sides of the argument compromising. Machiavelli, on the other hand, prefers to be in control and tells people this in The Prince. Once again, he has a pessimistic outlook on what the optimal person is.
Multiculturalism creates a pleasant path with peace and harmony. To the opposite, when people are enforced to assimilate into the Egyptian culture, it causes them to feel bitterness, and is more likely to maintain their cultural heritage in a secret manner. If we look at a society where multiculturalism is supported, all individuals are inspired to practice their own culture out in the open. This gives people the opportunity to get to know a variety of different cultures, which is in our situation important. Thereby, this guides the society, on the long run, to a greater understanding between cultures and fewer misunderstandings.
It is often described as a very superficial and materialistic ideal. Although, James Truslow Adams defines the American dream in a total different view in his book The Epic of America. "A dream of land in which life should be better and richer for every one, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement, it is not a dream of motor cars and high wages only, but a dream of social order in which each person shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are capable and recognized by others for what they are, regardless of the fortuitous circumstances of birth or position" Adam's statement is related to Gatsby because he came from a poor
It is the job of historical institutionalized churches to preach this, the small liberation churches may have impact but none as large as the historical institutions. Once the church fully accepts the ideas of feminist liberation and accepts that God blesses men and women equally we might be able to fully realize the goal of feminism in the church system. God does not discriminate due to race and definitely does not discriminate on gender, the historical churches need to adopt this way of thinking in order to have a complete understand of Christianity. Feminist theology views offer the Church inclusion, with adoption of
Hutchinson held open meetings for those in the colony who agreed with her and wanted to discuss the prior sermons. She soon became a figure for those with similar religious standpoints. Anne Hutchinson’s mission was to express the idea that “Those who would be saved, were those in whom the Holy Spirit lived; this was signalled by a personal love of Christ and an inner light.” However, the government believed that Hutchinson’s vision would separate the colony and destroy their dream of becoming a “City Upon a Hill”. Hutchinson was willing to take responsibility for the meetings she held and was confident in what she was doing, but she did not give others a chance to take a stand. Everything she did put her in the spotlight, and part of being a leader is encouraging others to speak up.
If a person did not have hope they would be constantly anxious. That person would be so worried he or she would be unable to see the goodness or love in life. Hope according to Christians is letting themselves be taken care of by God. Because of this Christians are not preoccupied with fears and can focus their time into something productive, like Mary Astell did (Piper). Mary Astell put her hope in God inspired women during the seventeenth century.
This is said towards John Proctor to avoid another altercation between him and Parris. Nurse is stating that everyone should stay true to their religion, but John is not close to the church. Nurse wants John to pray and find some sort of peace because she does not like violence. Rebecca Nurse is seen as an example of strength and resolve in the community of Salem.

She did this because she wanted to follow her religion. You may obey these rules, but more often than not you don 't obey all of them. You might obey a majority of them, but not all, some people don’t even realize that they are not obeying all the rules. You are choosing not to obey these rules because you don’t think they 're right or you don’t agree with them, your culture is not telling you to not obey them, your own personal opinions or intuition are telling you not the obey them. An example of making your own choices come from the story, Two Ways to LIve in America, the story is about two sisters, one follows her culture, the other wants to live her own life in America, “ I am an American citizen and she is not.
They were there to help protect a country that had given them the opportunities of a better life and to give back for all they had received. That is the moment I realized that not all are bad, just some. I often think that we as a society want to find the bad in people of different ethnic backgrounds. It makes it easier to group them as a whole and blame them for the faults of a few. Take the Muslim community.
