He defines fraud as willful deception and believes it to be one of the worst sins. He says, “Since fraud belongs exclusively to man, God hates it more and, therefore, far below, the fraudulent are placed and suffer most.” (XI. 25-27). Dante does not name any specific souls in this circle but does claim that many bankers are in this circle.
According to Dadabhai Naoroji’s article, “The Benefits of British Rule for India”, the Indians/natives had no voice in the taxes, legislations, or were qualified to earn the position of a court judge or high-ranking government official. The society the British constructed blocked the Indians out, and openly disregarded their opinions and desire for change and equality. Some may claim that the British modernized their country by reforming the natives education system, and implementing new innovations and technological advancements, like railroads to improve transportation within the country. However, according to the article written by Professor Peter Marshall titled, “The British Presence in India in the 18th Century,” the majority of these systems primarily focused on English and Western ideas, rather than their own distinctive culture. The traditional ideas and beliefs focusing on theory and methodology, that were implemented into their previous education system, were then modified to a practical approach, forcing their pre-existing system to slowly descend into oblivion.

When the Chorus Leader claims “only a fool could be in love with death,” (246), referring to Antigone, Creon immediately ignore that idea. He instead latches onto corruption saying that “the mere hope of money has ruined many men,” (248). He later continues with this line of thought into a large monologue calling money “so current, rampant, so corrupting” (336) and blaming riches for “every godless crime,” (341). His first thought is of corruption and bribery because that is what would compel him to disobey man’s laws. He has no love in his heart like Antigone.
Rudolph is pput on trial, a show trial if you will. Show trials were a judiaciary trials held in public places to influence the public opinion rather than ensuring justice. This trial was known as the Sanksy trial. In the novel Rudoplph was placed on trial because he was accused of being spy, traitor and a sabetour.

For example, he uses to call people according if they are white or Indians. He does not care about learning their names or mentioning them; in addition, when the police tell him that he does not fit in the profile of the neighborhood, he thinks, “I didn’t really fit the profile of the country but I knew it would just get me into trouble” (Alexie 10). This idea shows how people feel about their sense of belongingness, and the gap between his culture and the culture of the country has just increased exponentially. He is not a real American because he is just an Indian. However, even he is in his own reservation with his family, the narrator says, “I was one of those Indians who was supposed to make it, to rise above the rest of the reservation like a fucking eagle or something” (Alexie 10).
For people like Tom in the Great Gatsby, the eyes stand as God because what they’re doing is sinful and wrong and they are aware of that. “Terrible place isn’t it,” said Tom, exchanging a frown with Doctor Eckleburg ” (Fitzgerald, 26). Tom is a perfect example of a really greedy person who has never had to work for anything and is another example of how money completley corrupts people because it has become a basic need for Americans. After Tom picks up his girl from the valley of ashes he looks up at Doctor Eckleburg and feels guilty for a second, but because of his money he is assured that all his money will protect him and he can always stand behind his money. “And, entering or leaving the city, one cannot escape the valley of ashes and the eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg.”
By ENEMY we mean the powers of imperialism, the multinationals and the puppet powers that be, the false gods, the capitalists, the priests and teachers who give false interpretations. The law encourages crime. The schools teach ignorance and people practice ignorance in preference to their true culture. Our soldiers and guardians have been given false desires and false greeds and the foreigners now qualify us everywhere as thieves”
It is considered a response to market failure because the FCPA stopped corporations from becoming monopolies by halting negative externalities and information asymmetry from occurring through the illegal bribes being made to foreign officials. Market failure is essentially when a company pursues their interest alone and use society’s resources inefficiently (Jasso, 2015). With the bribes being made to foreign officials in return for business overseas, and accounting books being “cooked”, certain companies were getting an unfair advantage in the market (“A Resource Guide to the FCPA…”, 2012, p.3) This unfair advantage was about to cause negative externalities internationally, and information asymmetry. A perfect example of how the FCPA prevents monopolies or market failure is through the case of Pfizer in 2012.
With all of the events that took place during this time, they all added up to cause a scare in America at the time. I believe that McCarthy was the main cause of the Red Scare because of his accusations of many American people. McCarthy accused American citizens as well as the United States government while HUAC only accused Hollywood

From reading this passage, I believe that insensibility is not a blessing because people need to be able to able to be emotionally affected.
