His external struggle over the freedom of his wife helped portray the hysteria prodded on by religion within the town, while his internal aided in portraying hysteria by showing that there was more than one kind of hysteria within the story. While when the play was originally written to show the ridiculousness of the red scare and the hysteria it brought, a more contemporary take on the play can relate it to today, through how some view Muslims or any people from the Middle East. Many people in America, sometimes entire communities hate as well as fear these people. We cannot continue to go on blindly hating other humans which is too common now, but we must rather act together as a community to better ourselves and our world. We must replace religious and racial intolerance with cooperation and respect if we are to continue as a species.
Blacks were uneducated and some whites where in the same predicament. White believed just because of the color of their skin, they were elite and wealthy. Poor whites often denied education in this regard. Blacks were interested in receiving the undercover education whereas as whites didn’t want it. Blacks took pride in learning new information.
For instance, it can portray the Whites more positively than the Blacks. In this case, it is racial stereotyping. Catergorising the Blacks as the inferior one because in the past, they were sold to slavery and thus shunning away from them is a racial stereotype of the Blacks. The media can also affect stereotypes by portraying the Blacks more negatively as compared to the Whites. For instance, in 42, there are separate toilets for Whites and Blacks.
Black people were expected to address white people as “Mr.” or “Mrs.” while white people were not expected to do the same. Many white southerners believed that black people were alright with the roles of inequality that were bestowed upon them. When the uprising of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s proved this not to be true, non-minorities rose up in resistance (Friedman, 62). The anti-civil rights non-minorities influenced the movement by inhibiting it. They fought against the rights African Americans had been fighting for for years.
Dr. King uses allusions when talks about the creative extremists. A creative extremist is someone who is a extremist in a unique way, whether through love, honesty, education, or intelligence. He also mentions how many people consider Jesus to be an extremist because he often spoke how we show love everyone no matter what they have done. Nevertheless, some citizens refuse to follow the laws set before all people by the government. In a way he is saying that this is a reason for the need to fight for their rights and for desegregation.
Abigail and John are both contrasting figures to these views because they commit sins, lie, and create the image not of what is expected in the Puritan religion. The purpose of these characters created by Miller was to show the restrictions of the Puritan society and how people sought out power because of grudges they held. The four sources given, explain that many but not all people have trouble upholding the expectations put upon them. In the end, John’s individualism cost him his life, and Abigail's forced her to flee Salem Village.

People believe that the primary cause of wars and violence worldwide is religion. They base this assumption on two reasons; the first reason is examples of some wars that were actually caused by religion, the second one is words in the religious books that are misinterpreted. Most of those who believe that religion is the cause of wars, give the example of the Israeli-Palestinian, which according to these people is caused by religious beliefs. Jews believes that Palestine is actually the location of the ancient land of Israel, which according to the Hebrew, was granted to the Jews by God.
Equality suffers greatly from his cause. Equality’s cause is to be able to create an invention that will appease the council of scholars, and further the knowledge of the society. He also wants to use this as forgiveness for his sins. However despite Equality’s best intentions, he is persecuted for his individuality. “A street sweeper!
Humans have the natural tendency to impose personal beliefs on other nations. Concepts such as religion are forced on to these people and their ways of thinking are eradicated, so that the conqueror's ideas would be upheld. This shows the significance of human nature, which proves that human beings desire to live in an environment where the mindsets are similar to their own. If placed in a different environment, then they begin to feel uncomfortable because of fear of being in a foreign society.
A religion that commands rules outside of what is written in the bible, and can put their followers in danger of psychological and emotional issues and even get away with killing their own.

While the first-generation Puritans believed this, their offspring who knew nothing of the religious hardship back home would rather have personal indulgences, which puts strain on the Errand. Adding on to that, the idea of being a collective group changed into the Puritans becoming more focused on defining themselves away from the Church as seen with King Phillip’s War. The war represents a change with the second and third generation Puritans who needed new, secular, enemies to define them as told by Marone when he says “The Puritans groped back to the tried and true-they found terrible new enemies to define them” (Marone 33). The Puritans defining themselves through fighting the Natives in King Phillip’s war, totally undermines the Puritans’ original enemy of being eternally damned. Furthermore, the Puritan Dilemma of the conflict of old vs new impacted the Puritans’ view of nature, as seen with the Salem Witch Trials and how God was punishing them for straying from the Errand.
The game SPENT is a simulation that goes day by day giving you options of spending money. After playing the SPENT game I realized the difficulties that came with poverty and the tough decisions that came along with it.

Many reasons for discrimination today come from made up beliefs such as the value of whiteness, religious beliefs, and attitudes created by humans.
Perhaps one may realize that this is a certain topic that they feel strongly about and strive to make a difference. For example, there are those uninformed in this world who unjustly depict all Muslims as being terrorists, just because those in ISIS are that religion, too. This stereotype is discriminatory and prejudicial because a religion doesn 't make a human being do terrible things. A religion does not turn a person evil, it is the person who chooses to commit those acts.
However, once the leaders have drawn them in enough, they demand all mental devotion or there will be consequences. Another researcher describes that if Ron [cult leader] felt like verbally harassing a member for not obeying or just simple because he was able to, he would and this was done by making he/ she stand in front of a crowd and proclaiming what was wrong with that member (Gard). This statement proves that psychological abuse is real threat among religious cults. This is taken from an ex-cult member/ mental abuse survivor 's real account, and he states that this is just the beginning of the abuse.
Religion can help make sense of anything that occurs in one’s life whether good or bad. If it’s good, it is of God, but if it’s bad, it is automatically stated that it is of the devil. People are devilish and they should be rebuked and the devils cast from the souls of hell. Religion has been stated to provide inspiration, and is the force that bind individuals together. However, organized faith has its disadvantages.
