Out of all the warnings he has received, the ones he truly felt were true were Calpurnia’s dream and the discovery of the beast without a heart. Another reason why caesar didn’t take the warnings seriously, although everyone loyal to him did is his arrogance. Caesar was very arrogant and this is shown through the way he speaks, which is always in the third person. Caesar’s ignorance and Caesar’s arrogance were the leading causes of his demise. Had he come to his senses earlier, and not let his arrogance get in the way of his safety, Caesar may have lived longer than he
Fear has the ability to manipulate people into believing there is danger when there is not, causing them to make rash decisions. These decisions can result in a disobedience to one’s cultural beliefs, as seen in Lord of the Flies and Beowulf. Even though the characters from Lord of the Flies and Beowulf come from cultures built around nobility and loyalty, fear tears them apart from the society they had worked hard to achieve. Although the boys from Lord of the Flies tried to keep their culture’s morals, the fear of the unknown caused the children to betray their Culture. At the beginning they were able to maintain their structured society; they had an election-- a civilized way of selecting their leader-- and they had the conch.
To love is to risk. Whether that is risking life, belief, health, or reputation, it is still a risk at any rate to give devotion to another. No era in history knows this better than during the Holocaust. Still, the most unexpected of people would die trying to help Jews escape persecution, they would help others who didn't share the same moral foundation as they did, they would share food rations when they barely had enough for themselves, or they would risk their public standing and forever be labeled as a sympathizer just to help a suffering soul regain his balance. Similarly, Markus Zusak's The Book Thief demonstrates a complete comprehension of how humans act against self preservation and individual comfort when challenged with harrowing situations that appeal to their own personal connections.
The flaw to that argument is that those would only be discovered after the war and only if the allies had won, by however actively arming yourself, killing Nazi’s and, sabotoging supplies the impact would be immediately felt, presenting a better chance of winning. When slavery was still a big problem, many of the slaves still ran away which was still resisting. Many Jews did try and run, their problem was that the Jews and the slaves were they were always isolated so their best option, if they could was to run. Some also revolted, but the ones that did nothing, regretted it, because they
If he hadn’t stopped, there could have been a terrible accident. The bathroom bombing incidents are a good reflection of John’s personality because he seems almost proud of his bad deeds. John Conlan is an irresponsible character that cares more about living than he does about other people. I’ve gone through the experience of having friends that are really irresponsible and I’ve had to deal with the consequences of it. It’s better to be friends with someone like John because a friend like John will end up getting you in trouble like he did in The Pigman.
At the fault of his father, he reacted rashly. “When Walt’s double life came to light, the revelations inflicted deep wounds. All parties suffered terrible.” This would be a negative turning point in anyone's life, but Chris was wrong to just pack up and take himself to his death. Though Chris indeed had his flaws, more evidence points to him being sane. He was moral, made decent decisions for the most part and was intelligent and likable.
The imminent threat of death is present but the idea of a fruitless future becomes an unbearable possibility. Moral courage allows for the display of strength through selfless actions against injustice. During the Holocaust many injustices were made against the Jewish community. Personal diaries account for the hardships of those persecuted in Hitler's final solution. As bad as Hitler’s attempts to restore Germany's power were, they managed to bring out the best of some people.
In Sarah’s Key and Night, the characters of both books survive the atrocities of the Holocaust, only to realize that their faith had mislead them and hid the truth. Now to survive the situations they were forced to go through, Sarah Starzynski and Elie Wiesel came to the realization that no matter how badly they were treated, their tormentors were only angry members of a larger
The symbolism and allegorical features of the film are both extremely vague and contradictory, making any one interpretation difficult to justify and easy to disprove. When interpreting a work as an allegory, it is always worth paying some attention to the intent of the writers, and the scriptwriters of High Noon intended to write it as an allegory for blacklisting. The easiest way to see this interpretation is to see Sheriff Kane as a victim of blacklisting. His fruitless search for help in fighting Miller symbolizes how alone those brought in front of the House of Un-American Activities were. Their former friends would not help them,
I think that this can apply to the Holocaust. Although the Holocaust was not some minor blunder that can easily be recovered from, it is important for society as a whole to learn from what happened. It is easy to see now that it was a time in history with very low standards, and it makes me wonder what was wrong with those who enforced it. In this movie, I could not help but feel bad for those that were treated so horribly and it makes me glad that it is viewed as a horrible treatment now. Now that the Holocaust is recognized as a terrible time, it has been a foundation for how people are treated.
The world silence was due to the consequences that were written down for them , the risks were very harmful and all countries knew that they have a high chance of losing. This all goes back to WWI Damage that was caused, The second main point was that you don 't have to risk your country for another group of people which are considered as out cast . Lastly the world was very hateful toward the jewish people and many europeans enjoyed what they were going
In conclusion, people in The Crucible lie for their personal interests, their tunnel vision haunts them in the sense that it comes back to get them in the end. This is shown by the fact that john died because he was not willing to live for false sins. In his shoes choosing to die was easy, choosing the harder right between the easier wrong is all depending on how you look at it. The consequences from the wrong choice will make your life harder while sticking to the harder right choice will make your life
