Although there were no evidence of who set the building on fire, protesters were held responsible because of their interference on stopping the extinguish of the building and cheering on the fire. Many were arrested that night. On May 3, 1,000 Ohio National Guardsmen occupied the campus. Governor Rhodes held a press conference that provoked many protesters, calling them “un-american, revolutionaries set on destroying higher education in Ohio”. On May 4, General Robert Canterbury wanted to ban the afternoon protesting rally because he believed that the tension and violence from previous days would rise.
Many have said that history repeats itself. This has never been more evident then with the tragic events that happened with the Red Scare and the events in The Crucible. Both deal with mass hysteria and how accusers are given power and use that power for evil. In both the accusers look down upon the rest of the society and just accuse away with your accusing finger. What we learn from both of these horrible events is that we should never look down upon others or accuse someone of committing an "immoral crime" without seeing or never or hearing what really happened.
The king did not stand for this so he planned to kill the figure, but yet the figure killed him. The citizens of the party then confronted the figure with rudeness and violence and yet the figure killed them too. This tells you that the “Red Death” actually represents Death himself and no matter how hard you try you can’t escape from
When the Baltimore riots took place everyone around the world not just in Maryland started pointing fingers towards the black people. However, it was just the African race getting blamed when multiple races were involved in the riots. The riots took place because of innocent black people were being killed for example Freddy Gray was killed in the back of a patty wagon. Mr. Gray was put into the vehicle alive and well but when they went to take him out he was unresponsive. Alton Sterling would be another perfect example of police brutality against the African race.
Social justice warriors even smashed windows and stole from a local Radio Shack while fighting for their cause; trash cans were set on fire in the process as well. "I am very unhappy with the violence. What people in Berkeley are generally in favor of the issues involved and they are very sympathetic with the people in Ferguson and people in New York. But what has happened is that peaceful rallies have all turned into violent confrontations," stated Tom Bates, the Mayor of Berkeley, in an interview. This shows how not all protests are executed as peacefully as the general public
Americans in our world today believe that “ minor” laws do not mean anything, but it is the “minor” laws that lead you to be a real criminal or lawbreaker. Frank Trippett argues in his passage, A Red Light for Scofflaws, that scofflaws should be stopped and be shown that a minor law is just as important as a violent crime. The author supports his argument by giving reasoning why people would think minor laws are not a huge deal. The author’s purpose is to show the reader that any laws against littering, speeding, or noise pollution should be serious and not treated by scofflaws. The author creates an objective tone for the people who are interested in any law-and-order.
Throughout the novel, dehumanization has contributed to and resulted in large amounts of conflict. People’s positivity is stripped away leaving only negativity. Society then finds a way to cope with their unhappiness, usually resulting in an increase in negative effects. One example of how censorship created negative conflicts includes, “A carful of children… had seen a man, a very extraordinary sight, a man strolling, a rarity… They would have killed me… For no reason at all in the world they would have killed me” (Bradbury 122). This quote shows how easy crime is to commit when positivity is no longer in your life.
Sword is seen to destroy, kill, and solve problems, but really it doesn’t. Let’s see an example. The Freedom Rides during the Civil Rights movement. The event of people riding buses to protest was peaceful. But to add to the problem local law enforcement, and even the local people attack the buses and killing people showing the power of the sword.
When people riot not only do people get hurt, but many others get in trouble or even arrested. In this riot 60 people were arrested. This fact proves that fans can go too far because they are getting in trouble with the authority just because their soccer team lost. Along with injuring people and getting arrested people people make decisions that are worse. People make decisions that are not good for them, and can hurt them in the long run.
I do agree with Phil Ochs that young men and young women had a moral obligation to oppose controversial wars like the Vietnam War and to engage in acts of non-violent civil disobedience. There was unnecessary fire bombing in Indochina causing many innocent people to die while many Americans were being killed. Based on the movie that I watched on Tuesday, it seemed as though the gatherings of students turned violent because of the law enforcement.One scene I clearly remember is the one were the students were blocking the halls and then turned violent when the police started beating the students, violence only leads to violence so it caused the students to become more hateful towards police, making the students violent as well.
