When the court goes to recess, Henry turns furiously to Alice and says he “don’t want to hear it”, an example of verbal violence due to anger, because the Press accused Henry of brutally killing Jose Williams and the judge took the side of the jury and overstepped his bounds of power by treating the gang and Henry unfairly. Henry reacted violently because this was a case in which many authority figures were openly discriminating against him simply because of his ethnicity in a professional setting. Furthermore, Henry is later provoked by a guard to attack him so that he will be viewed as a murderer by the public and will remain in jail. Henry strikes the guard because the guard tauntingly asks if Henry thinks he himself is “something special”, which shows that this assault was only prompted by corruption within the system of justice and unfair treatment; he chooses not to remain calm because being provoked by authority has become to recurrent and
The main character is busy barricading the house to make it safer, Mr. Cooper is in the basement waiting for Ben to do all the work and take all the risks, much like slave owners did many years ago. Correspondingly, throughout the movie Ben is betrayed and held back by the white people around him, just as the African Americans have been for many years. The ending of this film is very graphic and symbolic, as it shows the African American character being murdered and treated like something other than human, he is shot, but there are no repercussions for the shooter, instead he is praised by the sheriff. After Ben is shot the hunting party is shown sinking their meat hooks into him to bring Ben’s body to the fire to be burned. While meat hooks are used by butchers to move meat, they are also used to hang meat, which is symbolic because of all the African Americans that have been hung by radical assemblies.
The people cannot think far enough understand that their own government is inauspicious and destroying their own people. When two people realized their strengths and tried to rebel, the Handicapper General came in with a double-barreled shotgun and shot both them both, warning the rest of the people that if they follow in their path they will end up dead just like the two who realized they were worth so much more. By the way that Kurt Vonnegut describes the government forcing equality on the people and the irony of the people not actually meeting the equality, one can see the mockery of a communist

This story has a protagonist who wants to break free, this is a common characteristic of Romantic stories. Other characteristics include having a character going against the establishment which can be clearly seen by how Mr. Hooper was made an outcast and harassed by his people. For example, In the story when the narrator says " Old Squire Saunders, doubtless by an accidental lapse of memory, neglected to invite Mr.Hooper to his table..."(Hawthorn 5). This demonstrates how Mr. Hooper is an outcast because he is wearing a black veil. He struggled with his secret sin and was alone most of his life due to everyone being against his beliefs .
I think that the British soldiers acted in self defense during the Boston Massacre. The colonists were threatening and provoking the soldiers by shouting vulgarly, beating people with clubs, and throwing rocks covered in snow, so I believe that the soldiers had a right to fight for their lives. Just take a moment to imagine the Boston massacre, it’s late at night and people are tired and confused. The colonists are shouting “Fire and be damned, who cares! Damn you, you dare not fire,” (Exhibit B) and the British soldiers are ready to defend but don’t know what’s going on.
In the book there is a quote “okonkwo was ruled by one passion- to hate everything his father had loved”. Basically stating that he dislike his father in every single way. No matter what the subject was he didn’t like him.
¨He had no patience with unsuccessful men, He had no patience with his father¨(Achebe Pg. #4). Okonkwo does not tolerate men who had no title or who were lazy, including his father. He was so unsympathetic and full of his own priorities that he had no patience for his own father. This shows that he has no sympathy for people who are considered less of him.
At the beginning he does not want to kill Duncan but he is forced to by his wife. He later then starts hallucinating, gets no sleep, and regrets killing Duncan. As the story continues he then kills banquo and Macduff's family. He becomes very cold hearted and no longer cares to kill, he will kill anybody who gets in his way. Macbeth sends some men to kill Macduff's family because Lennox tells Macbeth that “`Tis two or three, my lord, that bring you word Macduff is fled to England” (4.1.141).
He is referred to as “the tyrant”(5.6.8) and as “angry god”(4.3.19) many times until the end of the play. “Those he commands move only in command, Nothing in love”(5.2.22-23) By the end of the play, those who remain with him are those who have no choice in the matter. Furthermore, he cannot control not only his direct servants, but also the kingdom. “He cannot buckle his distemper’d cause, Within the belt of rule”(5.2.17-18) Scotland is compared to a diseased body that cannot be subdued, suggesting Macbeth as an unfit “doctor”. Malcolm also calls him “black Macbeth”(4.3.59) and tyranny is personified to symbolize Macbeth’s rule.
Lighters in the hands of citizens burning cars and businesses, holding a sign, “Hands Up Don’t Shoot” through the war, police on the other side holding their stance like a fence moving together against the community, who they are supposed to protect and serve, turned against them. A war that is close to home about police actions that caused outrage throughout the country. In the article, The Problem with Broken Windows (2016), “James Stewart, president of Newark’s Fraternal Order of Police… [said] that the frequent stops and citations made people mistrust the police…” According to Childress (2016), A police officer placed an individual in a chokehold suffocating him to death, for selling cigarettes on the street.
