After this hefinally realized he would not be able to enlist like everyone else and Gene snaps on him stating,“Phineas, you wouldn’t be any good in the war, even if nothing had happened to your leg.”(12.190) This leading into a blowout and Finny coming to senses with what Gene actually did tohim.

For example, Krakauer includes letters that refer to Chris as an “idiot” and a “greenhorn”; yet, Krakauer negates all arguments against Chris and then refers to Chris’ critics as “angry letter writers” (176). To demonstrate that negative perceptions of Chris stem from false information, Krakauer proves that Chris correctly identifies the moose. Krakauer also recognizes counterarguments to Chris’ intelligence, but he negatively describes the people that present the counterarguments. In addition, after extensive experimentation and research, Krakauer concludes that the chemical L-canavanine in the seeds is responsible for Chris’ death (202). Krakauer determines that the seeds are toxic to prove that Chris is not reckless and incompetent.
Bringing attention to the fact that if it's not bringing positive attention its deemed as unimportant. Although there are efforts being made he simply makes it out to be “not enough” he shows this by briefly stating things like “the predicament of actual polar bears, meanwhile, seemed only to be getting worse.” and “I noticed that the museum was scrapping its exhibit about disappearing glaciers and polar bears. It had proved unpopular and was mostly ignored,” statements such as these paint such a sad pitiful image for the polar bears. It causes readers attention to focus on themselves and hopefully push them to be more considerate and attentive to such pressing
I ran as fast as I could, leaving him far behind with a wall of rain dividing us” (360). The narrator abandoned his brother during a vicious thunderstorm only because he wanted to retaliate against Doodle for not completing the program. Even the narrator himself said in the quote that a “streak of cruelty within me awakened” (Hurst, 360). The narrator knew that he was being cruel and proceeded with his actions, only out of spite and shame for his
If you wish to live in fear and stay inside the prosperity and point of confinement of your nation, this is not the journey for you. In AD 922, Middle Easterner subject Ahmed Ibn Fadlan is sent to the primitive north as an emissary, since he became hopelessly enamored with the wrong lady. Ahmed and his gathering keep running into investigating Vikings and demonstrate the veracity of the memorial service of their dead lord, yet Ahmed is horrified by the Viking traditions - their wanton sexuality, their dismissal for cleanliness, their heartless human penances. Afterward, a young man achieves the camp to request the warriors help: The Wendel, animals of the Fog, have been assaulting his country, murdering and eating everybody in their way. The prophet powers a thirteenth warrior, one who must not be a north man, to go with the Vikings.
In their society, it is a sin for a citizen to have their own individual ideas and preferences, much like how in communist Russia the people were treated as one. The main character, Equality is said to be cursed for being intelligent and asking questions. He later finds a tunnel from the Unmentionable Times which he uses to conduct his own experiments. Equality learns how to make light using electricity and decides to share his discovery with the Council of Scholars, hoping that they will forgive his sins. When Equality takes his discovery to the World Council of Scholars, they are angered by his discovery of light and tell him that they have “much to say to a wretch who have broken all the laws… How dared you think that your mind held greater wisdom than the minds of your brothers.” (Rand, p.71).
This progression of manufacturing led to a larger middle class, as people found the desire to buy luxury goods for themselves once again, leading to economic enhancement. Nationalism was further highlighted by the Tariff of 1816 - the first tariff in American history, which was instituted primarily for protection, not revenue (Borneman 261). The expansion of industrialization as a result of this enlarged middle class demonstrated America’s need to expand their self-sufficiency; because before the war, America greatly relied on foreign countries. The War of 1812 revealed the necessity for a better transportation system, economic independence, and independent markets, all of which came to fruition as a result of the
“Now you shall not receive any more tribute from me.” “Do you know who you are dealing with. I am Pogoda, the god of weather. I can make you not be able to grow any crops ever again,” exclaimed Pogoda. “How do you propose that you do that, it is not like you can make something fall from the sky and stay until it melts away,” said Bartholomew. “Actually, that is exactly what I am going to do, and it will be called snow,” stated Pogoda.
Dr Strauss is affected by the operation also. For example, he gets into arguments with Dr Nemur regarding the operation. Dr Strauss wants to wait a while before they publish the results of the experiment, and Dr Nemur says that Dr Strauss is “nothing but an opportunist who was trying to ride to glory on his coattails.” They also argue about who contributed the most to the experiment. Dr Nemur says it was his experiment, but Dr Strauss says that he's the one who found Charlie and performed the operation. Their arguments support the theme because they are directly related to the fact that they tampered with nature.
