Even while the Stones were high as a kite, they managed to tour for three straight years and perform nightly. Although one should not do drugs due to the health hazards, the Stones made singing, dancing, and playing instruments look ridiculously easy while they were looped out of their minds on drugs. Trademarks such as the Rolling Stones’ tongue and lip logo, which was designed in the image of Mick Jaggers’ mouth and lips by John Pasche in 1970, have set them apart from other bands. Also, being introduced as the “Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band in the World” has definitely given them the extra glam factor that set them over the
His casual approach to sexual violence mirrors the violence throughout 1984. In this scenario, the sexual violence is dehumanizing the woman in the movie, just like women are dehumanized by sexual assault in society today. Despite sometimes appearing as a foreign problem, the dismissal of sexual assault is very prominent in society today. The United States 45th president, Donald Trump, has allegedly sexually assaulted nineteen women (NPR). These accusations surfaced before his election and after he bragged about “grabbing p***y”.

Elia Kazan a Greek-American director once said, “Whatever hysteria exists is inflamed by mystery, suspicion and secrecy” In The Crucible by Arthur Miller the town of Salem gets warped into a loop of lies and false accusations. A group of girls claim to be able to see spirits to avoid being called witches, and accuse others of being witches, starting a chain reaction. Now others accuse people of being witches in order to get rid of those they don‘t like, and so they be hanged. Hysteria and conformity cause an uproar of lies that kill innocent people in Salem. Hysteria makes people become irrational , and innocent people die because of false accusations.
Document 6-2 This document acknowledges oration by Joseph Warren on the Second Anniversary of the Boston Massacre on March 5, 1772 in which he questions the British government policies and democracy in the province. He slams their legislation of the late acts for taxing America. He detests the fatal massacre of 1770 that painted the vivid images and sound of mutilated bodies in the mind of Bostonians. Further, he adds to the fear and imagination to live in with their children being forced into violent soldiery, disrespecting virgins by exposing them to unbridled passion, which he labels worse than brutal violence. In his oration, he also revealed how the channel of commerce from the colonies is prospering the city of Britain.
The threat of Communism and the Red Scare put fear of group mentality into many people during the late 1940-50s. The authors of 1984 and The Crucible used their respective works to comment on the social injustice going on in their own lives, which connects to injustice the exists throughout time anywhere in the world. Miller wrote his play, set in 1692, about Puritans and the Salem witch trials because he believed that, similar to his trial for HUAC in the 1950s, the trials in Salem were caused by false accusations and mass hysteria led by powerful individuals. In 1984, Orwell creates a world in the near future that shows group mentality and its threat to conform society with the government. In The Crucible, Arthur Miller illustrates a world
There have been many protest songs in the United States; the freedom of speech has contributed to powerful music and protest words that are written in song. The song that will be discussed throughout this essay is “American Idiot” by Green day. This song speaks volume about the uneducated “America” and puts emphasis on the destruction that reality television is making on the United States of America. Listening to the unspoken word and read between the lies, for that then you will understand.The song “American Idiot” was released during the 2004 presidential election, where George W. Bush was selected into office for the second term as President of the United States of America (source). Armstrong was inspired to write this song after hearing a song by Lynyrd Skynyrd on his car
This quote shows that Boll weevil is capable of shooting someone (Cecil), therefore making him murderous, similarily to war. Boll weevil and war are similar as they are both devastating. Boll weevil causes devastation to the Redmond family by trying to put them on a ship to Boston (102), trying to frame Fortune for Cecil’s death (121), and trying to steal their freedom papers to give them to Cecil (66). These events would have been devastating to the Redmonds because they would loose all their oppourtunities in Boston, Fortune would be in jail for a wrongfully accused crime, and loosing their slave papers means they would be put back into the horrible conditions and life of
They claimed he was way too strong smart and way too unequal. In the text it says “Harrison was just thrown in jail for plotting to overthrow the government he is a genius and an athlete he is under handicapped and should be regarded as extremely dangerous” The government interrupted the tv show which was a ballet play to put an announcement that he escaped and this is the description they used. Harrison was just trying to end what the government was doing because they were overpowered but they described him with such harsh descriptions. Harrison interrupts the play and shows up on the screen shortly after the announcement. He claims “I am the emperor.
Especially in Hollywood, neighbor turned on neighbor as they struggled to clear their own name. Communism was on the brain, and the government and its citizens were trying to put out the fire before it could even begin. Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible” takes place under very similar circumstances, in a very different time. The Salem Witch Trials of 1692 and 1693 were just as intense as the 1950’s, the setting was different, “Commies” were exchanged for witches, but hysteria remained a key player. Mass hysteria, like a plant, flourishes under the right conditions.
Six weeks later after my broken leg I was finally ready to play again. But it’s already the championship game. My team, The Cobras have not made it to the championship until this year.

The Smoove twins Chris and Jrue have played outstanding Trevon and Andre were playing good as well but Robert and Tyron weren 't playing that good so we needed one more good guy to make this team great... And I was that guy.

The StoryCorps’ 476th podcast episode titled “Mrs. Yetta Bronstein for President”, is about pranking the media and causing a bit on mayhem in an otherwise often very serious business. Jeanne and Alan Abel are the prankster masterminds behind the 1964 and 1968 presidential campaign of Yetta Bronstein, the fictional write-in candidate for “The Best Party”. The ruse was set up to prank and mislead the media with Jeanne voicing the single New York mother who stood for values such as putting guns in every household but decreasing the bullet velocity by 95% and taking Congress of salary to put them on strict commission. The way the interview and story is told helps solidify the impression that Jeanne and Alan made pranking the media and embarrassing
