By listing a series of allusions, Wiesel was referencing the meaning behind the words. Wiesel’s list becomes a functional rhetorical tool because it stimulates the audience’s mind to form associations between his allusions and his topic of indifference. Without the list of allusions, Wiesel would not have had the same effect on his audience, since it created a lasting impression on the audience through the series of historical events about indifference. Wiesel had no need to elaborate on his allusions because he wanted his audience to think and remember by themselves the indifferences listed and reflect on how over time nothing has changed. As Foucault writes in the Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison: “But let there be no misunderstanding: it is not that a real man, the object of knowledge, philosophical reflection or technological intervention, has been substituted for the soul, the illusion of theologians.

At first, it appears that Siddhartha has everything a person could want and more; he was beloved by his society, family, and friends and excels at everything that he attempts. However, he was disenchanted by this lifestyle and felt he could never truly reach the enlightenment he desired and wanted to venture out and find it. Despite this, his father did not want him to leave, he wanted Siddhartha to find the enlightenment within the Brahim religion like he was suppose to. Siddhartha was not having it and wanted to break away from his fathers hold and eventually he was able to. The wise believer traveled from religion and teachers to new ones every time he became disenchanted with a society and was desperately trying to find the religion or philosophy that would help him achieve it.
However, his moral courage did not let him change his mind despite his reputation suffering a massive blow in the society.

The reason why I chose this song is because everything that the song represents also pertains to who I am. I am someone who does not care about what other people think of me.

When many people think of Bob Marley they think of reggae music, three little birds, and possibly that he loved smoking marijuana. Many people are too quick to judge someone before they even take a look into what they actually did. Many people do many great things in this world, and sometimes those actions go unnoticed. I was inspired by what Bob Marley did for his country because he did it to better humanity, and because nobody ever would think of Bob Marley changing the world. To many people Bob Marley was just a music icon, who sang songs you would listen to while you were on the beach and had no care in the world.

In episode three, Bartlett acts out asking for an unproportional response to an terrorist attack, yet later comes to a proportional response after listening to his military advisors. The reason he wanted an unproportional response is because he upset that America is unable to protect its citizens like the way the Roman Empire did. Bartlett is wishes that he and the military would be able to protect everyone in their country, but is unable to because, it is simply not possible in today’s world. Instead of continuing to be upset over this fact, Bartlett makes the right decision by taking proportional action to the terrorist attack, rather then attacking an airport and having unnecessary citizen deaths just to prove a point (West
