In document E, “Ostracism is a great way to eliminate a weaker but annoying rival.” (Document E)This means that any citizen can be banished, through a vote, in which majority rules. This is also unfair because this has nothing to do with a democracy. Ancient Greece was not a true democracy. Consequently, the mistakes made ultimately lead to ancient Greece’s downfall, Although they had some things under control, they made many mistakes that the government has learned from. That is the point of
Odysseus was also irresponsible because he never told the truth and he disobeyed the gods. Odysseus was all around, irresponsible. In conclusion, Odysseus is not the archetype hero people claim him to be. Odysseus shows characteristics of irresponsibility, unloyalty and pride. Odysseus falls short of what people claim an archetype hero to be.
This cowardice event shows that he is not a hero. In conclusion Odysseus is not a hero because he is missing many profile traits a hero would posses. As I’ve expressed copious times Odysseus is not a hero because he is egotistical, cowardice, narcissistic, and alienated. He sacrifices his crew, is unloyal to his faithful wife, and is a
This then rid him of being known as Han Solo as he made more films where he played many different characters this meant that audiences couldn’t pin him to one role it broke the classification of naming him a character thus giving him a identity. This just hasn’t happened for Mark Hamill, he hasn’t had many major on-screen roles to shed the name and will probably be stuck with the name Luke Skywalker forever especially after his brief appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and for his upcoming role in the next two films in the trilogy. He will play a big role in the next two films as he is the only Jedi Master left in the in the galaxy and he will need to help defeat the first order. In the first film he referenced a lot but only plays a small role at the end, but it did set up the second film up so he can join in with
A theme in both the epic and the film is: if one is respectful to the gods he will be helped, but if one is disrespectful he will be punished. The first example of help is shown in the poem through Odysseus’ rescue from Calypso’s island. Odysseus was stuck on the island against his will and wanted to get back home. (Homer 1.56-57) The Greek pantheon decided to help him because they remembered Odysseus’ sacrifices, Athena told Zeus, “ Did not Odysseus offer you delightful sacrifices?”(1.62-63) Zeus responds by agreeing to rescue Odysseus. This situation shows how the Greeks believed that sacrificing and being respectful of the gods could help get a person out of a tight spot.
I do not believe that "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" was the best movie because the battle scenes seemed less important to the survival of the majority of the characters, and the villains seemed non threatening. The battle scenes between Luke and Darth Vader in the original six movies appeared to be very important. Because Luke played such an important role in the Rebel Alliance and the Jedi Order, every battle he fought in, it was crucial that he lived. The villains in Star Wars: The Force Awakens seemed very non threatening. The leader of the First Order, General Hux was “all bark, no bite”.
A true hero would sacrifice himself instead or at least try to come up with an alternate plan that did not involve fatalities. Odysseus did not even try to reason with the gods, but instead just went with what the gods said. If Odysseus had stuck up for himself to the gods instead of sitting around following orders, then his best six men would not have died. Meanwhile, Penelope continued being strong by setting a remarkable example of sticking up for oneself. In fact, Penelope can attest to the fact that knowing who you are and what you want carries you relatively far in life.
"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." That 's the third of Arthur C. Clarke 's laws; substitute the world "magic" for religion, and that 's about the gist of Foundation. The Foundation uses religion to spread its influence and power across the galaxy. Since the people of the barbarous Four Kingdoms don 't understand nuclear technology or the science behind it, they assume it comes from a supernatural source. In a sense, Asimov is playing off the idea that before people understood how lightning worked they chalked it up to Zeus.
Due to this lack of focus the story feels underdeveloped and lacks a proper climax that would provide some level of closure to the readers. Several of the characters that were thought to be heroic and possessing the moral high ground are shown to have some hard opinions about the racism that drops them from the pedestal. Some parts of the story are engaging but when compared to the iconic To Kill a Mockingbird this book fails to hit the mark. New Horizon provides a close look at the Pluto’s binary system Pluto is the only known binary system in the entire solar system. A binary system is one in which the planet is not large enough to force the moon to orbit around it, but rather both bodies revolve around a central gravitational point that is created by the focus of gravity from both bodies.
This movie was won two Golden Globes as well. The Martian may not seem like a movie for teenagers, but it turns out being very interesting and humorous. This isn 't your average space movie by any means. Most space movies are always on the Moon but this one is on Mars. When Mark finds out he is alone he first realizes that they don 't know he 's alive otherwise they wouldn 't have left him on Mars, alone.
