I’m not promoting the verbal, mental, and physical abuse of women by any means, but it’s tough to beat up on Proctor because everyone was treating their wives poorly at this point in time. Now, not everyone was having affairs with eighteen year olds then and he needs to be held accountable for that, but John Proctor definitely has a minor understanding of moral values. Nevertheless, Proctor did fall under the charm of Abigail Williams, which makes him lose the moral high ground he once held, thus taking away his status of the perfect
Carnegie’s only purpose in their new lives as scavengers was to have all the power he could and to own the only Bible known to existence. This is demonstrated in his quotation,” I grew up with that book, I know its power." Him trying to have faith was for all the wrong reasons and God saw this. God knew that Carnegie was trying to use the Bible for bad and so he did not look over him and protect him as much as Eli. Eli also knew that Carnegie was the wrong person for the Bible.
Every action matters and can change the outcome depending on how we perceive and respond to one’s actions. Modern-day America can relate to the characters in The Crucible due to the hysteria that is always forming. America as a nation responds differently to different terrorist groups opposed to terrorist attacks. In both instances, they threaten our way of life similarly to how the idea of witchcraft had threatened the religious aspect of a Puritan’s life. For a terrorist group, negative images and emotions are received since it gives America the lack of security notion.
Some may argue that Abigail Williams was the main cause of the accusations, trials and consequences. However, Abigail was not the main contributor to the outcome. She fed Judge Danforth lie after lie and he believed everything she had said. Danforth, being one of the most honorable judges in the area should have had enough sense to see through the witchcraft facade, but even after being told multiple times by other people involved in the trial, he stuck to his beliefs, which ultimately led to the death of nineteen people. Judge Danforth based everything solely off of religion.
Consequently, they decide it must be witches becas they themselves are unaware of any other possibility. One woman, Mrs. Putnam provides, “I’d nott call it sick; the Devil’s touch is heavier than sick” (Miller). Similar to themes in The Crucible, Americans did not understand the magnitude of the issue and felt they had to become overly enthusiastic about it. As a result, an outbreak of Americans turning on one another during the McCarthy
Obviously a topic considering people who harm their kids in sexual abuse is a extremely sensitive matter. So the video did give tribute for the victims of the false enjailment. It also showed a well respected side of how people would normally react to this event. People were more willing to believe that these parents did this horrible act rather than coming to the realization that they did not do it as they said. These people would rather believe that the mom and dad would hurt their children without a single shred of physical evidence.
There is also the darkness of the room there is also shades of grey in there that brings up the controversy in gun violence. The whole situation has not been resolved, nobody can come to an agreement when it comes to gun violence so the shade of grey makes the resemblance to the disagreement of the situation. All the emotions that the PSA is portraying are very persuasive towards parents around the country for the reason that it makes them want the best for their children. Parents around the country want to make sure their children are in a safe environment so they could acquire their education and succeed in life. This PSA is great to persuade parents to vote against guns so they make the community safer for their children.
There has always been resistance against vaccination, even when it was first developed by Edward Jenner. Despite the millions of deaths that been avoided through the use of vaccines, people have always found ways to criticize this medical breakthrough. However, it was not until recently that the fear of vaccinations began to re-emerge and confuse the minds of the general population. With the growing concerns about vaccinations, parents are becoming more reluctant in vaccinating themselves and their children. Consequently, infectious diseases that were once contained (such as measles) are now resurfacing as outbreaks.
"You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view--... until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (Lee, 56) We are all guilty of judging others too quickly based on our own assumptions whether it is true or not. People are often judged unfairly because of their skin colour, how much money they make, what gender they are, and other things. Our judgements of others are solely based on stereotypes. In the novel Atonement by Ian McEwan, Briony Tallis is the protagonist who falsely makes the accusation that Robbie Turner is the rapist of Lola Quincey. Her accusations were based on her understanding of the male gender and others were able to believe her based because of the stereotypes of men and lower-class.
She herself was in shock because she didn’t come to think that the man who doesn't even know her and who hides his identity would decide to save her life. She was confused about what had happened and seemed so curious to find out what kind of person V really was, he saved her life. This is what Burke was saying about how the identification through rhetoric can make a person believe they are similar to the other individual’s even though; they might not be. Which is what Every thought the moment she met V and he saved her life. Moreover, In the V for vendetta the government was controlling everything and taking advantage of their power they did what they pleased.
