Nobody is born bad, not even the evilest of souls. In the Lord of the Flies, the main point of emphasis is that inherent good is in everyone, but so is original sin. The beast is inside of us all, and that is why with every child comes a beast. People turn savage because of their life experiences. Many times throughout our life we must make a decision that can change us forever.
The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it. –Thucydides. The United States of America is always at war, war with fire. The United States firemen have been battling these fires since this country was founded. I am interested in this job because I want to go out every day and make in a difference in people's lives all across the country.
In the Pre-Columbian Mesoamerican time period in history, there were many groups of Native Americans that had diverse cultures and societies.

The Native American cultures in these areas had various developments that the different European cultures could use to make themselves more powerful and become strong enough to annihilate many of the Native American cultures.
According to E-40, “Life is something you can’t borrow and give back; Here today and gone tomorrow…just like that” This dude must have played a lot of Siege, because every life is precious in this game. Human beings are fragile creatures, often dying after one or two well placed shots. This means every time you stick your neck out, there’s a chance you’ll be punished for it. This promotion of thoughtful, tactical gameplay is a welcome one. It also helps create Siege’s incredibly intense atmosphere and mood.
War is one of the few things that seems to prevail throughout the entirety of human history, from the battle of Kadesh in 15 BC all the way up to present day. While horrible, it has been a central focal point of many historical events, and most claim that war is unavoidable. In T.H. White’s The Once and Future King, however, war is seen as completely unnatural. This is clearly seen in one of Wort’s lessons, where White’s feelings of anti-war are clearly displayed.
Napoleon Bonaparte once said, "Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest." Fear is anything but a new concept. Throughout history, it has dictated and shaped societies in ways unlike any other. The "Red Scare" during the 1950's is just one of many great examples that demonstrate just how much fear actually dictates our lives. Fear is the main driving factor in our society today, from political and social campaigns to what we eat and wear.

Mexican American believe in the concept of the American dream; therefore, they sought the best economic opportunity for their situation, most commonly agribusiness opportunity.
Even as an old and frail man, Beowulf would still fight in any battle, even if he is doomed to lose, to build his legacy even further. Also in that quote, Beowulf even admits that throughout his whole life, from young to old, he has only cared about fighting in battles, seeking fame, and defeating his enemies. Throughout the epic poem Beowulf, the protagonist and ruthless warrior, Beowulf remains constant throughout his momentous adventure in his goal to build his legacy and fame by fighting countless enemies. This results in Beowulf being a static character. Though charming and heroic at times, Beowulf is a static character in the epic poem Beowulf because he always attempts to build his ego through self fame and
The theme that High Noon shows is responsibility to society. The theme for “The Most Dangerous Game” is empathy for all living creatures. This means that the main character in High Noon, Will Kane has to fight for a whole town, his wife, and most importantly himself. The character in “The Most Dangerous Game”, Sanger Rainsford has to only fight for himself to stay alive. As you can see from my reasonings, the stories High Noon and “The Most Dangerous Game” share many similarities and
With many rulers at one time, tension began to build and each ruler grew to feel more superior than the other. After all, they were all “Sons of God” so naturally each one wanted to be the top dog. They ruled as coordinators rather than as a central government and this type of challenging ruling started to split up the Zhou into regional states.
