Both men were pro civil disobedience, However the two had different ways of showing civil disobedience. For example on page 395, in the first paragraph which explained that even when peaceful revolution it used a problem will always be encounter. Gandhi protested tax on salt by marching as seen in paragraph 3 and Thoreau protested tax on the voting poll according to page 395 paragraph two. Another difference between the two is that gandhi hurt people around him because he persuaded people to strike with him, according to paragraph four in the last sentence. Thoreau stood only for his beliefs, so once he ran into the law it was on him.
The “Speech to the Second Virginia Convention”, was meant to persuade the American people that the British could not be reasoned with, and, therefore a war with the British was inevitable. This speech was a call to action, as Patrick Henry felt that Americans could no longer sit idly as a war began in the north. For Henry would rather have death than live without liberty. Henry spoke honestly in an attempt to gain followers that would join him in the war against Britain. In Patrick Henry’s “Speech to the Second Virginia Convention”, used figures of speech, metaphors and similes, and rhetorical questions to persuade his audience to agree with his views on the war and the conditions of America.
Now, all kind of persons must have read his speech in newspapers, his autobiography and on internet. There would be strict Gandhi supporters, people who have hatred against Gandhi from the roots of their heart and some who could never make up their mind. I feel that the speech is intended for those who respect Gandhiji and feel that all he has done is correct from all aspects. He explains why he thinks Gandhiji made some unforgivable blunders in the freedom movement for which he (Nathuram) committed this grave crime. He begins by saying that Hindus, at the turn of the 1920’s had begun to neglect their caste differences and had united to fight against the British rule in India.
Britain viewed themselves superior to the United States and the American citizens were forced to accept and obey the British colonial rule. It was of great significance for Henry to persuade the colonists with his speech in order for them to take action against Britain and the British rule and that nothing they have done has worked so far. Henry’s speech contains logos by providing logical reasoning as to why we should fight Britain and take back our freedom. He uses logos when he says “What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves longer.
The slingshot that Hassan owns symbolizes Hassan being Amir’s tool. On page 77 during the rape scene, Amir had a moral dilemma about saving Hassan from getting raped or running away. Amir said “In the end, [he] ran.” This shows Amir’s true feelings towards Hassan. Amir made this choice and left Hassan proving his disloyalty towards Hassan because he only sees Hassan as a tool to retrieve the kite to get Baba’s approval. The pomegranate is also shown as a symbol in the book to represent Hassan’s loyalty towards Amir.
The binding force behind his major endeavors is his yearning to save Theban citizens from the prevailing plague by expulsing the land’s religious population. This is evidenced when he says; “Indeed I’m willing to give all that you may need; I would be very hard should I not pity suppliants like these” (Oedipus the king, lines 10-12). Indeed, this comforting statement can be regarded as the fuel of Oedipus’ subsequent actions within the play. Oedipus goes forward by differentiating himself in the way he wants his people feel satisfied; he prefers Creon’s message from the Delphic oracle to be publicly delivered in the suppliants’ presence. This democratic leadership style ignites Oedipus’ yearning to save his people.
One of the key leaders of the INC was a man named Gopal Krishna Gokhale, known for his restraint and moderation. This method of retaliation inspired Gandhi to use it but, importantly, manipulate the process to make it look solely Indian. The British authorities ordered a search of Gandhi because they needed to acknowledge the threat he posed to British rule. Gandhi was, however, deemed a harmless, peculiar man who posed no threat. Gandhi then began a Satyagraha campaign which aimed to help poor Indians in Bilar.
The nonviolence policy worked because Gandhi did not give in, he accepted punishment and responsibility, and his followers were loyal. When Gandhi returned back to India from Europe in 1896 he was sickened. The British Raj had formally taken over, so he decided to make a change and stop the unfair treatment of everyone in India. As Gandhi said himself, “My ambition is no less than to convert the British people
Martin Luther King strongly favored a nonviolence system to gain equality. He states in The Power of Non-violence, “nonviolent resister does not seek to humiliate or defeat the opponent but to win his friendship and understanding.”16 Indicating that a nonviolent technique objective was to unify and earn fairness without hurting the enemy. In opposing Malcom X strongly supported violence. In A Declaration of Independence by Malcolm X he says, “We should be peaceful, law-abiding but the time has come for the American Negro to fight back in self-defense whenever and wherever he is unjustly and unlawfully attacked.”17 Malcolm X encouraged African Americans to fight back regardless of the situation when we are
However it is to be underlined that Hobbes’ Commonwealth is centered on fear. Men joined the civil society to live in peace outside of the state of war that is the state of nature. But the only reason maintaining peace in the civil society according to Hobbes is the fear of repercussions. The sovereign is made strong to counter the natural « bad » nature of men. He is given « the power to keep them in awe and bind them by the fear of punishment and respect the laws of nature ».
He used his non violent ways to fight against British rule and also racial discrimination. Gandhi didn’t care what would happen to him unless he got to change how people think and rule in a country. Gandhi had non-violent campaigns. It was a struggle for him and the people not to use
This document was directed towards the Federalist by the antifederalist to explain a possible problem of the checks and balances system, after the drafting of the constitution and awaiting approval. The Anti Federalists didn’t want what we have now,they didn’t want the federal government to have and influence over citizens’ lives, they didn’t want the govt to in any way resemble a monarchy because they had just escaped from the corrupt monarchy. They believed that if the power in the country occupied in the people of the various states, then their vision would have a chance of success. Likewise, the Anti Federalist thought there was no bill of rights, so they disliked the constitution. Every constitution should have one for the people, and the government shouldn’t refuse to give on, as shown on Document E. The Letter to James Madison, Objections to the Constitution was written by Thomas Jefferson to explain what he disliked about the constitution to one of the writings, after the constitution was drafted and were awaiting ratification.
The Civil is a war between two territories or more, the North and South in this case, were the two territories to fight for one goal. North wanted to abolish slavery, and the South wanted to keep it. War didn’t start from one man hitting another, in fact the war had a cause to it. The Southern people were worried about the North establishing a new nation. Meaning to vote for a new president.
Moreover, Gandhi was seen as such a “transcendentalist” as of how his society influenced him. One thing that he did, was he did what he wanted to. When he was offered to go to London to study for college, everyone thought he was an outcast for studying abroad. Gandhi defied them to do what he wanted to do. From here he vowed to work for the disenfranchised.
