Beowulf represented good. “I’d leave my armor to my son, Now if god had given me a heir, A child born of my body, his life created from mine.” He didn’t have selfishness he was willing to give up what he
Although, Lennie’s actions probably weren’t his fault, with him not being able to learn from his actions and remember that his own strength is too much for him that he became a threat. George, pained to do it, knew what was best for Lennie and other people/animals, and had to end his life. Overall, even though George had to make some pretty drastic decisions and someone’s life got taken away, it was all for the best and nothing bad will no longer happen and who knows, maybe George will get to live his
The noblest Roman of all was Brutus for many reasons. In many cases Brutus would rather chose death over a life with no honor. He claimed all the traits honor; integrity, decency, morality, and rectitude. His decision to kill Caesar was not based on his own views or the views and beliefs of others he made his decision on which would be best for rome and for its people. Brutus was a gentle and honest man who killed caesar for the right reasons and not just so he would have a greater shot at becoming the king of rome.
Cassius knew and warned Brutus yet Brutus was being stubborn for better words and did not listen. Cassius was suicidal and didn’t exactly speak his opinion when it was needed or could of been heard. Cassius also killed one of his own men during war who was a coward! That shows major disloyalty with Cassius knowing that they shouldn’t of gone to Philippi in the first place. Julius Caesar would of made a great leader for Rome and showed loyalty and gave to his country in his will .
These men were both assassinated, unfortunately. Compared to most people, Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. didn’t care if other people didn’t agree with their
The inhumanity found in humans that is shown in war, changes both the aggressors and the victims’ lives in a negative way. Humans often lose sight of what is most important in life: survival; therefore some focus all of their attention towards what is needed to make them “fulfilled”, and sometimes have to take down others in order to get their way. Hitler was enraged that the Germans lost WWI, and blamed the loss of the war on the citizens of Germany being unpatriotic and
On the other hand, Beowulf, has little emotion in his decisions to fight. He looks at the greater need of his people, not what he wants or what might happen to him. He shows this when he volunteers to battle Grendel. Grendel had not done anything to Beowulf personally, but to his people. He slaughtered his men, mutilating and devouring their bodies.
In the novel Fahrenheit 451 (F451), the government has banned books, but the government is not to blame as it started with the people. The average person did not have the slightest consideration of books, and the people that did were considered snobby and harmful to society because they became much more intelligent than the average person. During the book, our main character Montag is a firefighter, but instead of putting out fires, they create them. They
This could be a reason he kills so mercilessly and does not feel remorse for his victims. Kilcourse describes the Misfit’s Actions “This bringer of death is profoundly offended that the Giver of Life cannot be dismissed as a mere holy man or eminent ethical figure but must be adjudged as either the incarnate of God or else a wholesale fraud” (38). The Misfit is a nihilist, and he wants to believe that God exists, but he can’t and his merciless killing and crimes are a strike back at

1.) During the initial months of the depression, the general belief was that the troubles were cause by the "cut-throat competitions" between businessmen causing many businesses to fail. As a result the Roosevelt administration's first attempt ot deal with the crisis was to mitigate such "cut-throat competitions" with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery Act of 1933. This act spawned the Nation Recovery Administration (NRA). The NRA was empowered to bring government, industrial corporations, and labor unios together to find ways to get rid of "cut-throat competitions".
Mohandas Gandhi was born in 1869 in the Indian coastal city. His family taught him to respect all religions and to believe that all living things are holy. Gandhi traveled to England to study law and after getting his degree returned to India. When Gandhi went back he saw that Indians were treated horribly by the British and they were forced to imitate them. Gandhi refused to live by this and believed people should live free of all class, wealth, and educational distinctions.
There is a saying ‘Rome was not built in a day’; this expresses the idea that great things take time to evolve and grow properly. America is much like Rome in the sense that over time and thanks to the foreign influences America received, it was able to blossom and still continues to grow. Without the intervention of France and England in America’s land and politics during 1795 to 1810, America would not have been able to thrive on the harsh global scale. Specifically, the political, social and economic events of the XYZ Affair, Alien and Sedition Acts, Louisiana Purchase and the despised Embargo of 1807 became turning points which would decide if America was strong enough to survive as a country.
