The ill bureaucracy, the biased rules and regulations, the malfunctioning law - these have all become so fundamental to our daily lives that we no longer recognize a life without these burdens. We continue to watch the poor get poorer and the rich get richer. We continue to watch the oppressors do as they please. We have eyes, yet we are blinded by the belief that we are safer if we stayed out of their business, not realizing that this is everyone’s business. We have ears, yet we refuse to listen to the cries of the helpless.
It is as if the generation is being controlled with what they are able to say, or even do. These people are not allowed to live their own lives because of the fact that the society doesn’t want them to do so. Society has made Mildred self-centered, robotic, and
Both Grendel in Grendel and The Captain in The Sympathizer are conflicted in their own ideas as society’s influence on their beliefs corrupts and alters their mentalities. They find themselves in situations in which they cannot choose between themselves and the world. Although both characters are fundamentally different from others in each respective story because of their unique dual natures, they cannot escape the clutching forces of assimilation to the expectations of the world and society. Grendel and The Captain are able to create their own foundations in their own beliefs, but they are challenged in life through the exposure to the world and its expectations. The major problem explored throughout Grendel and The Sympathizer revolves around how each of
Migration is part of life, and with a border that makes it nearly impossible. Because of this it has become an important issue, but it has also been desensitized.

It explains that harsh reality that life is not bliss and other people work against you all the time, even those you love. Everyone knows what it feels like to fear what others may think of you, to fear the judgment.

Along with the judgment, society begins to treat others different for having those fears.
The speaker feels an infuriating sense because we are too caught up with materialism in the world. It has been a problem of the past and will continue to be a problem in the future as long as we keep giving ourselves to earthly acts. To reveal more aggravation, the speaker states “Little we see in Nature that is ours” (ln. 3). The speaker is emphasizing his disappointment by saying that we are too caught up with our daily habits that we forget to notice nature’s beauty.
Collette O’Connell Writing and rhetoric 1 Collaborative manifesto reflection I will be the very first to admit that I absolutely despise group work. This is because I’m introverted and very stubborn, and together thise two qualities makes me extremely difficult to work with. I have a hard time listening to other people’s intentions when it comes to projects which often creates an unpleasant atmosphere.

No need for pointing fingers at each other when no action is being done. It 's useless and a waste of resources and time. Current the main issue is difference.When a person is exposed to change they can either embrace the change with open arms or don 't like the thought of change.

Overwhelming life’s struggles are never easy to go through.
