In the articles I have read about Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X I have noticed these men have very different styles on how they want to help with segregation. Malcolm was about self defence and to fight back. But Martin Luther King Jr was all about no violence and not fighting back. He believed that the best way to protest was to have a silent protest. This was when people would either go to diners or any public places and they wouldn’t get food, but they would sit on the bench and they wouldn't fight.
As storytelling, fiction and make believe are the personification of identity in the novel, silence is the foe that steals that from people. Khattam-Shud tells Haroun that the world is for controlling, not for fun. The best way to control a nation is to render them speechless. Without speech there is silence, and silence is the controlling factor of nations. Both Haroun and the people of Gup initially see the Land of Chup as a place antithetical to their own values of free speech and freedom.
While the Resistance is also afraid, their fear is transformed into a stable political emotion, hope, because their political claims are rooted in a deep love of shared principles to which they can aspire. This is why Kylo Ren murders the leader of the Empire in a sort of coup as an attempt to gain control, while the Resistance is a unified political force despite their relative weakness, diversity of personal motivation, and practical disputes. Both forces use the fear of loss as a motivator, though one uses the fear of losing power and the other, the fear
The Paragon of Freedom Equality is something strived for by society, to liberate ourselves of oppression and be ourselves unconditionally. But, equality cannot be achieved by the oppression of others, it will only cause others to retaliate or resist. This can be seen in Ayn Rand’s novella Anthem, where she depicts this exactly, the protagonist, Equality, is a young man who has been assigned the job of a street sweeper by his society. Equality has grown up being wrongly taught that the individual is subordinate to the whole society, therefore being oppressed by a collectivist society; due to his inquisitive nature, sense of self, and desire for self-improvement, he is able to break free and practice individualism rather than the oppression he faced during his time in collectivist society.
The film The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz shows Aaron’s side of the story and how he was not the man that the government tried to make him out to be. He was a man that had many ideas and views for how the world should be change. He saw the flaws to the systems that he wanted to fix. However the government made him out to be a hacktivist that sought out to take down the system and creating anarchy.
He off-roads his car while at the Detrital Wash, even though there are signs that say that off-roading is forbidden where he is. Krakauer says of McCandless after this occurs that, “as a latter-day adherent of Henry David Thoreau, [he] took as gospel the essay ‘On Duty of Civil Disobedience’ and thus considered it his moral responsibility to flout the laws of the state” (28). Like Thoreau, McCandless, too, thinks that government as a whole is something that truly binds and oppresses, and is a wholly unnecessary system. Government prevents Thoreau and McCandless from living the right life that is meant for everyone, so its rules must be broken. When they both decide to go against the government, it is solely because both think that government prevents the Transcendentalist lifestyle.
The theory unleashes such dynamic forces that from the time of its inception up till now it has governed the international system of the world however things one day itself fall apart. The Realists mark the State as the locus of different international circles and these sovereign states have vested interests which are always selfish. Realism is a heartless theory, man is not supposed to be selfish in the way exaggerated by the Realist thinker however [he] is a seeker of knowledge and what so ever he stumbles upon, he keeps
According to Martin Luther King’s speech, ‘I have Dream’ speech he says, “Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline.” While Malcolm X says, ‘ I’m nonviolent with those who are nonviolent with me. But when you drop that violence on me, then you’ve made me go insane, and I’m not responsible for what i do.” This shows that Martin Luther King shouldn’t be the leader because get beat up and not defend ourselves using violence, but sometime some guys need the sense to be beaten into their brain and body to realize.
Nonviolent resistance is the only solution to social change without strengthening the problems and tensions that are already there. The world may not be the way it is if it wasn’t for nonviolent resistance in human history multiple times. For example in Dr.King’s letter from Birmingham Jail he uses many examples of other non violent extremists. Paul,Amos, and Jesus are good examples of it doesn 't take violence to solve everything. Social change isn’t just something you can just fight out and be done with.
In our world, protest is good, and change is positive. In our democratic society we are not forced into following tyrants or parties, because we use our voices to argue, discuss, elect and protest. In conclusion, George Orwell’s 1984 is not relevant to our world today because of the contrast between the two worlds. The world of “1984” is exemplified by O’Brien’s chilling statement to Winston: “If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stomping on a human face – forever!”
•P 15: Do what you thing is right, it will make a difference, changes things and relations. •P 13: He argues it is not a moral duty to actively fight injustice, it is a duty to refuse to help an unjust government. •P 15: Thoreau explains how to bring a peaceful revolution. •P 16: Thoreau pointed out unjust law exist whether we should obey or disobey them.
2. Thoreau refers to civil disobedience as not simply a right, but as a duty merely because individuals are responsible for the actions taken by the government. The government is only what the people let it be, and it can be corrupted and abused if men allow it be. He believes men have “the right to refuse allegiance to, and to resist, the government, when its tyranny or its inefficiency are great and unendurable.” (942).
“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion, “by Albert Camus. Throughout the texts in the collection they deal with a struggle for freedom that is demanded and not given. In the texts “I Have a Dream” by Martin Luther King Junior, “Cairo: My City Our Revolution” by Ahdaf Soueif and “Reading Lolita in Tehran” by Azar Nafisi the texts deal with demanding freedom instead of freedom being given. Freedom should be demanded because legal documents do not ensure freedom, it requires an effort by all people, and oppressive governments erase individuality.
In this quote Madison use abundant image to exclaim the importance of liberty within a faction but it is impossible to perform because liberty is vital to political life. The second way was to give everyone the same interests, passions and similar opinions. Madison’s take on controlling the Factionalism in America was to Remove the causes and Control the effects. His ultimate solution came in the form of Federalism by dividing the government and keeping the factions at the most local of levels. Madison states that "The second expedient is as impracticable as the first would be unwise.".
