At first, the story-teller tries to fight against the growing oppression. She even challenges John’s treatment by writing the diary. Yet, while one part of her may believe John wrong, another part believes that since he is the man, the doctor, and therefore the authority, he may be right. Because they hold unequal power positions in the relationship and in society, she lacks the courage and self-esteem to assert her will over his even though she knows that his “treatment” is harming her. When he tells to practice in self-control over her irritation with him, the effect is ironic; he controls everything and even makes her feel ungrateful for such a care.
There is tension between them which leads them to an argument. Ismene does not want acquaintance with Antigone's business due to her quote "They mean a great deal to me, but I have no strength. To break the laws that were made for the public good" (Prologue Line 64-65). Antigone does not agree with Ismene and states if she's "A true sister, or a traitor to your family" (Prologue Line 27). Yet Ismene does not want to interfere with the law by
In today’s society, many people tend to mischaracterize and stereotype the Puritans with the modern sexual attitudes. The Puritans realized that sex is apart of everyone’s natural behavior, however, they believed that during marriage was the only proper time for it. There was only one main limit placed upon sex in marriage, and that was that it couldn’t interfere with your state religion and relationship with God. The leaders of the Puritans put very harsh punishments on adultery because they realized that people were going to engage in sexual acts regardless if they were married or not. A number of people in the group respected the law, and didn’t engage in sex because they weren’t married to anyone.
Though The Crucible is an allegory for McCarthyism, it focuses some of its attention on the question what is more important, your honor and reputation or your life? This is a question that John Proctor has to answer in his final act of The Crucible. Was refusing to give up his name an act of excessive pride or an act of honor. Proctor wasn’t a witch, but he wasn’t a saint either due to his sin of adultery. What gets John Proctor accused was his inappropriate relationship with his then servant Abigail Williams.
I will not, I cannot! You loved me, John Proctor, and whatever sin it is, you love me yet!” (I.465-472). Seeing Abigail cry, it suggests that Abigail’s affair with John Proctor has influenced her behavior in jealousy and lust as she strives for nothing more than her love for John Proctor. By only being heartbroken, Abigail is not to be fully blamed for the hysteria within the town as her actions are only based on desperate attempts to win John Proctor over, and no intentional harm whatsoever. However, on the other hand, Abigail cannot be excused with outside forces making her the way she is due to the fact that she has clearly had a choice in most of her decisions and actions throughout the witchcraft crisis.
Throughout the film, Julie seems to be struggling with the relationship with Ron, as I am sure she is aware of his infidelity, but fail to address it. Julie’s inability to address the issue likely stems from the the idea that it was a “man’s world”, and that women are meant to remain submissive, or they might not be considered a woman at all. Unfortunately, enduring in silence will not bring about any change. When Dorothy confronted Ron about his infidelity, Ron replied very matter of factly that he had never intended to establish exclusivity with Julie. It was merely a front to gain her trust, and that he did not want to hurt her feelings at this point.
The Atrocity A boring plot, a pathetic ending, a gay couple. I believe you should not read this book if: you value your faith, or enjoy intelligent novels. I believe if a person chooses to neglect their faith or intelligence they have abandoned some of the most basic values of human life. Without knowledge or faith our world would be thrust into darkness, because at the root of our society we all rely on our faith or knowledge or possibly both. Also, on the subject of faith if we disobey God’s laws we abandon our right to live, and without the right to live, we have no purpose.The unprofessional quality of this paper, and the unexciting content make it a pointless read, but the three main reasons you should not read this atrocity are it is one of the most vanilla and boring novels to
However, this truth remains unknown to Parris, so one has to analyze the situation from his point of view. Disregarding the truth, the first thing Parris worries about is his own name and reputation, instead of his daughter’s wellbeing. Thus, having his estate and daughter involved with witchcraft and unnatural events obviously threatens his rank as a revered. While arguing with Abigail, he says “my ministry’s at stake, my ministry and perhaps your cousin’s life”(Miller, 11), explicitly revealing how he places the importance of his name before Betty’s own sake. Parris is afraid of what others might think of him and avoids facing the congregation in order to evade the topic of witchcraft.
Many believe it’s morally wrong to procure your own life even if you are terribly ill and feel like you have no purpose to provide for others. Kant believes it’s morally incorrect because killing is wrong and euthanasia is another way of doing it. The Catholic church objects euthanasia because they believe we should care for the life of others and not end them merely because they are terribly ill, instead we should help them get better. The action of procuring your own death according to both Kant and the Catholic Church is morally wrong and should not be practiced. That’s why this issue brings a lot of controversy to the table.
Can people even answer this or will they just push it over their shoulder? This is relevant because gay rights are not civil rights in any form of fashion; the government just gave in because they did not want riots, even though they happened as any way. Its making our human race think these kind of rights are acceptable, but yet make us think that what I believe is wrong. Its idiotic and vulgar to think that two of the same sex should be able to share a bed, bathroom, kids, a life together, and be able to exchange vows in a wedding. Its just not right to say that, but what does anyone
