A sociopath is someone whose social behavior is abnormal. Sociopaths seems to be normal people and are only interested in their personal needs and desires, without worrying about the effects of their behavior on others ("sociopaths"). An example of a sociopath is the character Iago from William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Othello. Iago 's motivation for his evil deeds is never specifically revealed in the work.
The Vikings valued simplicity. Based on The Discovery of Vinland by Leif the Lucky, they sailed until they found land that suited their needs and matched the description of what they heard from other vikings. One of the Vikings refused to let his ship land on a nice wooded area because he said his men did not need more water or wood. They also valued sharing the wealth that they did have. Eric had his own explorations, but when it came time for his son to sail, he didn 't partake.
I chose Prompt #1 and personally I find Callarman 's argument very valid. I agree with him completely in the sense that it was not a good idea for McCandless to leave the safe environment that his parents created for him by paying for his college education making it easy for him to fall into a career and get his life started. It was very selfish of him to have his parents pay for his education then just throw it away like it was nothing. McCandless had a good idea of going out and finding himself but he should have executed it differently. I think that he wasn’t trying to be arrogant but at the beginning he was without realizing it.

Brutus had a good argument about Caesar being ambitious and a honorable men but it still wasn’t persuasive enough. The reason why it wasn’t a good enough argument is because Brutus only cared about himself when he was telling the speech and he never gave much detail about Caesar and it just didn’t tell us much about Caesar. He talked a lot of negative things about Caesar and only a few positive things about Caesar through the whole speech. Everything Brutus said in his speech was for himself and Rome he didn’t care about Caesar or the people in Rome that why I think Mark Antony was speech was better because he showed that he cared for Caesar and that the people of Rome cared for him
He was not the type of the aggressive and conquering hero, who made war for the sake of war and conquest. He was, however, the dramatist 's ideal king, who loved peace, and would almost never make war, but who would not hesitate to go to war in defence of his right and of his nation. He would not wage an aggressive war, but was valiant enough to defend his kingdom when attacked. This is the only kind of hero Shakespeare recognizes, and for this kind he had the most profound admiration. Few of the critics have appreciated this character of the elder Hamlet, or have seen in the account any significance for the
But those that have been transcended did more than read and perform rituals “...were the wise men or penitents, who had succeeded in not just knowing this deepest of all knowledge but also to live it?”(6) The rituals he performed worked for those that first enacted them, but that was only because they performed the act in an earnest and true fashion. They did not go through a

he claimed he believed in small government spending, but he bought the “Louisiana Purchase”- which was actually a great thing for the United States, yet it was a big government purchase. This caused some opposition, but in the end the purchase went through without any major rebellions. After serving two terms, Jefferson retired from politics and returned to his plantation at Monticello. Overall, Thomas Jefferson was another one of our greatest presidents that helped in the shaping of our
He did not allow his meager beginnings to dictate his future, but instead attained what many would consider impossible. Gatsby may not have gained his money legally, but in the end he still achieved one of his goals. He did not allow his moral convictions to hinder his route to wealthiness. Gatsby was thorough about his display of genuine wealth, which was surprising to many at his parties. Owl Eyes who was studying Gatsby’s books, concludes, “Absolutely real -- have pages and everything” (Fitzgerald 45).
People have the right to revolt when the government fails, but the government did not fail. Ralph did his best to protect their rights. By keeping the fire going, and using the shell to speak.

I think Amir and Hassan both have power, although they have gotten to their power differently. Hassan got into his power by just being a respectable and trust whereas Amir got his power the less respectably way, because he was just born into it. Even though Hassan had more plight to get to where he was it would be worth it after the arduous journey, where If Amir used his power in a way that was respectable and helped others he would have way more power. Due to the way he used his power I no longer feel any animosity for Amir. I do not like how morose Amir has been throughout most of the book.
