Liesel confessed to Hans that she hated Hitler, leading to a harsh slap in her face, literally and metaphorically, from Hans. This scene was heartbreaking for both Liesel and her father, as shown by the quote “Liesel stood up and also raised her arm. With absolute misery, she repeated it. ‘Heil Hitler.’ It was quite a sight - and eleven-year-old girl, trying not to cry on the church steps, saluting the Führer as the voices over Papa’s shoulder chopped and beat at the dark shape in the background” (Zusak 116, 117). Hans took it upon himself to explain to Liesel that she had to agree with and even glorify Hitler.
In the 1950’s, the first birth control pill was created by Margaret Sanger as an attempt to combat unsafe forms of abortion. Unfortunately, with the creation of proper birth control came the creation of the stigma around its use. This stigma is ending the lives of women all around the world. When women are shamed out of getting help, there is the possibility they will attempt to help themselves in harmful ways. An online article written by doctors Lisa Haddad and Nawal Nour states, “Some 68,000 women die of unsafe abortion annually, making it one of the leading causes of maternal mortality (13%).
In this quotation, Lady Macbeth tells her husband he would be more of a man if he goes through with the murder, and keeps his word. This is an example of Lady Macbeth’s consistent manipulation, in which she commonly targets his masculinity and apparent cowardice. His eventual descent into immorality and apathy is a consequence of Lady Macbeth’s malicious planning and coercion. As showcased in the mock-documentary, I Tonya, Harding was a victim of domestic violence for the majority of her life. The film depicts a particular scene in which her mother throws a knife at her arm, during one of their violent arguments.
About three hundred protestants were killed. Most of the country disagreed with her choices and each time a protestant was put to death it was "forty-five minutes of agony that would be repeated hundreds of times during Mary's reign." For monarchs are expected to be kind and supportive of their people and Mary had spilled too much of her own people's blood she was given the name 'Bloody Mary'. She proved herself to have a completely different way of ruling than her father or her half brother (Edward VI). Elizabeth the I, Mary's half-sister, was forced to help Mary with the restoration of Catholic faith in England.
In the Christian faith, the 6th Commandment states that “Thou shall not kill.” In the United States of America, the government legally killed over a 1,000 of its own citizens since 1976, and there are nearly 3000 inmates on death row waiting for their execution currently. As a nation, America has been unable to stick with one stance on many issues. There have been amendments banning alcohol, and others making alcohol legal. Many states have pushed to make abortion illegal, but still willingly kill their own citizens. Because of the injustices that have occured and still happen, the United States government should push for capital punishment to be illegal due to its significance on the lives it touches.
The Electra complex also is shown throughout this half of the play as we see the dedication Electra has to her father and her desire to kill her to avenge him. However, just after the murder Electra is then racked with grief and this brings on the seizure, once more showing the madness within her. At this point in the play we can see the madness clearly throughout the whole family and although they believe it is down to a curse on their family, psychology would point us in the direction of a serious untreated mental illness brought on by trauma in all three members of the
In 1971, President Richard Nixon declared war on drugs. We as a nation are in the midst of the Vietnam War era. This time was also known for the hippie movement that was highlighted by large amounts of drugs including LSD, heroin, crack cocaine, and marijuana being bought and sold within American communities. The drug use was so widespread that Nixon even referred to it as "the modern plague” and thus began a campaign to end the trafficking and use of recreational drugs in America. This conflict has continued on for the past 47 years and both sides have gained some ground.
Violence against women have existed many years ago in many different forms, such as burying an alive girl infant, selling them as slaves, assaults, capturing and mugging at home (Ezazi, 2004). This exists in many societies worldwide. “The most common forms of violence experiences by women generally is physical violence inflicted by an intimate partner, with woman beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused.” (UN, 2013) “It is only two decades ago or so that the international community has begun to highlight and systematically define the problem” according to European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights. The United Nations has declared the elimination of violence against women on 1993. This recognizes the urgent application to women of rights
Of late, certain countries like Western Australia, Belgium, Netherlands and Singapore have legalised prostitution in an effort to control the industry. In a medical journal, The Canadian Medical Association Journal, Parent-Duchatelet (cited in Clarkson 1939 p.296) defines that “…prostitution is an evil of all times and all countries, and appears to be innate in the social structure of all mankind…will perhaps never be eradicated; still all the more must we strive to its extent and its dangers.” The above countries have legalised prostitution with the intent of proving this theory wrong. Prostitution is the act or practice of engaging in promiscuous sexual relations in exchange for money or a form of compensation (Dictionary.com 2016). This is a contemporary process that has been greatly accelerated in the second half of the 20th century and into the present century. Amidst its biggest
