There was a big difference between both. Slaves had no rights, or freedom, and weren’t paid. Indentured servants were paid. Both can’t sell products they make. Bothe of them have a master.
Seward made the point that Slavery is only an intuition and can be removed from a state, and the state would remain, but if you remove freedom, it is no longer a state. He reminded everyone that there is an authority higher than the government, God, and that it was their responsibility to take care of everyone and all creation. William H. Seward closed his speech by stating that no free state would establish slavery, and if given the choice to go back no slave state would have established it. The Compromise of 1850 provoked various responses from different speakers, all agreeing the Union was in danger. The compromise was passed in order to protect United States from splintering, but it only delayed the war.
Freedom of religion has two parts and both of them create a separate religious liberty of freedom. The first part, “no law respecting an establishment of religion” is caused the establishment clause. The second clause is “free exercise of religion”. Establishment of religion means that the United States of America cannot create an official state church; as an example, like the church of England. This means, that the first amendment ensures that the United States does not have state endorsed religion, nor does it write its laws based on religious edicts.
The flappers were seen to be out of control due to their loose morals and people who did not support them felt that women should not be equal to men. The article uses emotive words and depicts the flappers as immoral. It creates a barrier between the flappers’ morals and the morals of the women who lived before the flappers who were regarded as innocent and obedient. Source I is a quote about Al Capone. It describes his ruthlessness and violent attitudes and the fact that he was very successful in his ‘business’.
Interestingly, as pointed out by Lawrence Rosenwald, Professor of English at Wellesley College in this article The Theory, Practice & Influence of Thoreau’s Civil Disobedience, the time in which Thoreau failed to pay his taxes and was jailed, was four years before the Mexican-American War. Also, the tax Thoreau refused to pay was not a federal tax. It was a tax that was used for state and local purposes. Since the Mexican War was a federal action and because slavery was not legal in the New England states, it would seem that Thoreau’s resistance was misplaced. However, Thoreau was protesting the nature of government.
The movie Romero shows political, economic, social injustice and virtues of courage and determination.

Priestley creates dislikeable characters such as the staunch capitalist Mr Birling in order to convey the contemptible attitude of the upper class towards society, particularly the working class. Moreover, he is portrayed as selfish, by firing Eva Smith from his works, in acting to protect his business interests. Arthur Birling’s selfish non autocratic tone in saying “A man must make his own way in life” depicts this absolute dismissal of socialist ideas such as the importance of caring and contributing towards the community. The characterisation and Mr Birling symbolising capitalistic upper class creates dislike in the audience for the political system driving them to sympathise with the working class and disapprove of societal inequality. In
Throughout history there have been many people and families that have been alienated from their cultures and lifestyles because of components such as age, race, social class, creed, etc. These behaviors are mostly exhibited by those who want to feel superior to others by suppressing them and making them suffer. In the novel, The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck, it is shown how the Joads were forced out of their property, because the wealthier people wanted to take control over it, this action shows how society believes that poor people are inferior and that they should be treated as such. One way in which John Steinbeck shows this assumption about society is by demonstrating how the landowners treat the tenants, or better said how the owners pay people to treat the tenants. For example, “One man on a tractor can take the place of twelve or fourteen families” (22).
Maycomb is prejudice in so many ways. The way they live life is through racism and money. They don't treat black people and poor people right. They humiliate the poor, make fun of negro and negro protectors. White people feel like everything is their property.

The Dred Scott case took us back a step by taking away a colored person 's right of freedom awarded to any US citizen. Similarly, the Plessy vs Ferguson case declared that every race needs their own separate school, theater, restaurant, etc. Finally, the Shelley vs Kraemer case ruled that black people can not be sold a house or property.

Chief Justice Roger Taney said that because the Scott’s were African Americans they were not citizens of the United States and could not sue for their freedom.

Something like privacy would seem like an unalienable right, wouldn’t you think so? You’d be wrong in just assuming that. Colonists were not considered equal to actual citizens of britain, even though they were. Colonists were not represented in British government, so they got no say in anything that happened. They were treated
