Gilead’s ruling class does this because even though the handmaids do not know exactly what the prisoners did, they know that they do not want to be the ones next in line for the gallows. This Scroggs 2 could keep the handmaid 's from acting out,

This procedure will change his life for the worse, and the Nurse is satisfied with that because he will no longer disturb her ward.

Period4 The Crucible Essay Communism and Witchcraft have the same effect on humans, that effect is fear, when you hear fear you think of your worst nightmare or someone hiding in your closet, during the McCarthyism era and the salem witchcraft people had fear about whether their life is on the line or not. It all depended on one person in their community whether or not they choose to save their life.

No totalitarian regime can be successful without the help of the submissive part. According to “The Feminist History Reader”, one of the way that patriarchy is reinforced is by women’s colluding in the system “The oppression of women could not have endured so long and in so many places without their cooperation” (Morgan 67). Women’s complicity can be seen in Gilead as act of spying and supporting the system. For example, women spy on each other. Janine accept to spy on other handmaids to help Aunt Lydia to find Moira.
The use of the noun ‘blood’ implies this notion. Common associations with this noun tend to range from pain to aggression. Moreover, the reference to these ‘wings’ around the narrators’ face shows the firmly established thread of extremist religion throughout the novel. As the narrator is almost hopeless, Atwood creates a strong bond between religion and The Handmaids’ to evoke their desperation to escape this dictatorship. The fact that the narrator solely keeps her thoughts about this oppressive society to herself, and merely conforms to the values and rules set in front of her shows her innocence, yet also illustrates the notion that she believes that the society that they live in is unjust, yet she does not seem to act on these beliefs, and rather keeps them to

In many countries such as Pakistan and India, people are given death penalty for murdering or robbing sometimes due to corruption of police force which is unfair the criminal as he/she should be given life imprisonment or parole for such crimes. If action may not be taken many people would turn against the government or accuse the laws and would see the negative aspects of capital punishments. Giving punishment would assure the victim or other people by showing justice and that it’s being discouraged while shows the victim that everyone disapproves the act of the
Mary was at the end of her rope; she was losing her husband. Although Mary had murderous intent, one of her strongest characteristics is thinking of the consequences; not for her, but for her unborn child. “As the wife of a detective, she knew quite well what the penalty would be… what were the laws about murderers with unborn children?” To make matters worse, Patrick wanted
Even though, one of the biggest changes is that the tyrant Creón now is a dictator even more perverse and cruel than in “Antigone”. Moreover, in the act of love and loyalty to her friends Antígona is considers a traitor to the city and the punishment for this is death unless she confesses to her crimes. Previously, Antígona challenges the government and Creón himself when she buries the two brothers Tavares in their own land. They were supposed to be exposed to the public eye as a warning for everyone who dare to defy Creón’s dictatorship. One of the best traits of Antígona is her stubbornness and strength of her heart to not let anyone manipulate her in her way to the true goal which is to see justice.
Rikki Tikki is an audacious and inquisitive character in this story who often stands up to Nag and Nagaina. Nagaina is known for being villainous and gullible because she believed Darzee’s wife would come near her if she was hurt. Lastly, Kipling’s use of personification really brings the story alive, especially the feud between Rikki-tikki, Nag, and Nagaina. In the end, being too audacious can endanger you and the people you love because you don’t fully grasp the idea of your consequences until you’ve made your mistakes. Those mistakes can affect not only you but all the people around
Around the time of the witch trials, the people in Salem were very religious. Rumors were easily spread and it was nearly impossible to prove yourself innocent if people were talking about you otherwise. During the witch hysteria, innocent people were imprisoned and and executed because someone has accused them of being a witch. It is understandable that some would accuse others to save themselves from imprisonment or from possible death. However, I believe Abigail should be held responsible for the imprisonment and execution of innocent people because she threaten the girls, so they would act bewitched and she also lied about getting stabbed by a needle and making it look like as if Elizabeth Proctor did it with witchcraft.
She takes two issues and forms them into one powerful statement that provoked thought and truth. Her use of the words horrible and blood drunken evoke a kind of incarnate anger humans have towards things that are threatening to them, inducing an empathetic response on the listener’s part. For example, the issue of losing a child may not apply to everyone, but the concept of unnecessary death does apply to everyone. In addition, she points out the "same line of inconsistency" (Shaw) being used by anti-suffragists time and time again. This inconsistency is spoken of by Anna Howard Shaw in a very clear and factual manner, stating that the men had hardly established their new country "before they began to practice exactly the same sort of persecutions on others
