He says, “If we find it does them good, makes them honest and less disposed to cheat Indians, we will then consider again what you have said” (Stone, 1841). Even though Red Jacket had no idea of knowing the future, this statement really foreshadows the dark world Native Americans would have had ahead of them. White colonists majorly displaced and deceived Indigenous peoples, turning them against each other, resulting in many deaths and hardships. Even though this point is representing what is to come, the irony of the statement gives a great impact of how hypocritical the Christian colonists actually were. With hypocrisy comes self-contradiction.
Historian Michael WOod describes the feeling as “a stirring… a meaning for remorse” (Doc C). This means that Asoka felt remorseful in his conquest, and that means he could not have been ruthless if he did feel sorry. And more than that, “Asoka ceased to indulge in wars of aggression.” Not only did Asoka feel guilty, he stopped fighting at all. Asoka didn’t want to suffer any more guilt or pain for his lost soldiers, and he accomplished that by halting any further acts of violence. Some may argue otherwise, that Asoka was a ruthless bloodthirsty conqueror.
The major similarity of the early iconoclasm and the Islamic iconoclasm is the destruction of images that they feel are against their religious beliefs. The major difference is that the early religious leaders did not destroy everything without thinking and they did not rejoice in the destruction of
Document A says “... and by giving them industrious and orderly habits, rescuing them from vice and rendering them valuable members of society.” Teaching criminals to do good for their community is of course a good thing, but they were taught through religion. Forcing a religion onto another is stripping them of their own freedom of religion. Not to mention the state of the prisons were not amazing in the slightest. The education reformation had potential, but
He continued to learn, which eventually lead to his demise. He was exiled from the society for an invention he created alone, yet again another transgression broken. Therefore the Transgression of the Unspeakable Word has great significance in the story, due to the fact that Equality is an individual and the author uses this transgression to limit individuality. Martyrdom also plays an important role in the work Anthem. Martyrdom is the act of suffering greatly for a religion, or cause.
He has lost his way.” “My friends of Hillsboro, you know why I have come here. I have not come merely to prosecute a lawbreaker, an arrogant youth who has spoken out against the Revealed Word”. In this part of the book it shows how the people did not open up to this change because they thought darwinism was evil. Society is the one that trained them to think like this, that it is evil and the only correct religion was
They do not wish for a simple victory without fighting, but plea for horrible things to come to their opponents. In these lines from the messenger we get Twain’s personal view of imperialism. It seems as if Twain is the only one that realizes that everybody thinks that God is in favor for only their side. Due to the controversial aspects of this story, The War Prayer does not fall in line with the other national literature pieces that were read and discussed in class, which is why it is an excellent piece to add to the curriculum. It is its own unique version of national literature that focuses more on the issues of war rather than national
I’d like to think if Judas hadn’t betrayed Jesus things might have been different or on the fictitious side, if Cia didn’t trust Will. If we as humans can weed out the people who aren’t trustworthy, on a small and large scale, there won’t be as much conflict, but if we fail to do this then hostility will still be at ease worldwide. Friends betraying others in junior high are major issus and resolving the issue as a whole is highly unlikely, but if we separated those we could trust with those we can’t it would save us all the headache. So, is letting go of trust the key to survival? After reading this book I believe trust is still something that is appreciated from the right people, but from the wrong people, the results can be
Molotov explains the need to eliminate a "fifth column" whose loyalties would falter during war. This explains the purge of foreign elements, army officials allegedly conspiring with Nazi Germany, and exiled kulaks who would launch an insurgency with the backing of a foreign-directed organisation. The source is also valuable because it demonstrates that the regime was aware of the existence of disillusioned Soviet citizens who might be motivated to betray the state in the event of a war. The limitation of this source is that it does not show Molotov's fully developed thoughts. Chuev the interviewer has been criticized for failing to "press Molotov for more details" or point out
Reinforced by research evidence, reasonable arguments for supporting the current law on illegal drugs are rarely offered. The clearest arguments are religiously based or moral views that the use of particular drugs is immoral; that people who use those drugs are corrupt and consequently, drugs should be banned and manufacturers, suppliers and users should be treated as criminals. Adjustment to drug laws has been advocated by a number of individuals and reform groups, however opponents announce that such reduction of laws, involving decriminalization and legalization, will eliminate the preventive effect and increase drug use and release much larger drug-related concerns into the community. A reasoning for legalization is that it would significantly reduce or even abolish drug trade inside the black market and criminal networks. Other arguments involve focusing responses within health instead of the police and the criminal justice system.
