The three of many reasons on why gangs fight are pride, self preservation, and the cycle of violence. One reason why gangs so ferociously fight is because of pride. For example, in the book The Outsiders the character Dally fights constantly. In the book, it states that Dally would go to gang fights just to let off steam, which shows he finds fighting soothing. Another example of pride causing fighting between gangs is from the article Rest in Peace Doc.

In Penrod’s Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate the Smart Kids, Penrod provides a brief summary of how teens are affected by their peers ridiculing and judgement. *insert supporting (integrated) quote from the article* From this, it is clear to see that it isn’t harmless what is being done in these situations. Kids are going home from school feeling broken, embarrassed, and outcast by those who were once their friends. Anyone can tell stories about how high school is all a popularity contest of different cliques, but no one is ever really willing to talk about how extreme this contest really is.

Benjamin Franklin was a great man that had influences in many areas and because of that he had many enemies but because he understood human behavior he enabled himself to turn enemies into allies. To understand the Benjamin Franklin effect you need to know that the things you do often create the things you believe. An example is when “Franklin ran for his second term as a clerk, one of his colleagues delivered a long speech to the legislature lambasting Franklin. Franklin still won his second term, but this guy truly pissed him off. So he set out to turn his hater into a fan, but he wanted to do it without paying any servile respect to him.

On DebateWise.org it is stated that some kids join because they live in poverty and will otherwise starve to death. They feel like they don’t have any choice but to join. Other times they are convinced being a soldier will be safer for them, that they will be safer when they’re the ones behind the gun, not in front of it. In Ishmael Beah’s “Long Way Gone” he describes how during the civil war in Sierra Leone, rebels would march into cities and chose the children who seemed the strongest. Many times the rebels would then force their newly recruited members to kill weaker civilians in the city.

They could have delayed the attack and given Ender and all of the other kids more time to develop their thinking process more so they could fight much better later in their lives. Also they did not need to attack because the Buggers may not have invaded them again. They did not know that they were a advanced species at the time.
We know that he’s been locked up by the government, but we weren’t given enough information about him to build a relation with him from the beginning. As we begin to see Harrison more after he escapes from jail, we start to build that relationship with him. When he’s being described on TV, we’re told that he is “a genius and an athlete, is under-handicapped, and should be regarded as extremely dangerous” (Vonnegut). By these descriptive details that were given about Harrison, unlike the details about other characters, we can tell that he’s going to be an important character in the story. Harrison is similar to most teenagers who, at one point during their teenage years, has had a period of defiance.

"Yond Cassius has a lean and hungry look; He thinks too much: such men are dangerous" (Julius Caesar). This quote represents how the Royals were a dangerous team and how others may have feared them. The battle that the conspirators fought in the book to get Julius Caesar out of power was hard fought and strenuous. The journey to the World Series championship was also hard fought and well deserved. The 1985 Royals worked their rear ends off to get to where they were and have a chance at winning a World Series and they weren’t about to let that chance slip
Fairmont Heights has had a long history filled with many questionable decisions and people making those decisions. An honor code is put into place to better build the integrity of people and the school they attend. And by making Fairmont Heights have an honor code would be the biggest waste of time the school would ever think of doing. Honor codes belong at already established schools that are better than Fairmont and will always be. The main reason an honor code would be foolish to instill in the minds of the student body would be due to the fact that Fairmont Height students have about as much integrity as Benedict Arnold.
