Instead of those outcomes, it enraged the town to do more evil to the town. The second symbol is the rose. The rose symbolizes Miss Strangeworth’s protection. She had belief that the roses were keeping her protected from the evil that was and that continues in the town. She believes that while she is putting evil in they will keep it
The sheer ruthlessness of the punishments discourage any sort of crime as they will scare the citizens into never breaking the law in fear of the consequences. The document “Crime and Punishment in the Elizabethan Era” also points out that the law was flexible and could be applied differently based on the situation. When a person was convicted of treason, they were not always executed immediately. Some were inhumanely tortured for more information to see if they were working with others, despite the obvious lack of morality in doing this, it worked. However, on the other hand, the Elizabethan Law did have at least some moral sense to it as people some were spared from torture, and even execution in certain circumstances.
Possibility of Evil takes a different approach when talking about its character’s flaws. Miss Strangeworth “Never concerned herself with facts” and normally would spread rumors instead of actually informing others about ligament problems in the town (Possibility of Evil 252). Miss Strangeworth’s flaws are not just a difference, they stem from something inside of her that chooses to do harm. She could choose to be kind but instead she continues to hurt others with her letters. The concept of imperfection is illustrated in these stories in different way.
Put your mind to the general welfare of the population of this town. If people were to move on from the unnecessarystress and anxiety that the "sinful" woman has caused, our town could achieve peace! Hence, it is imperative that the lady Hester's current punishment of strict jailtime be repealed and the consequences that the scarlet letter itself holds be our justice.In essence, it is important to look at both of the consequential punishments in question; from an outside perspective. The true matter of importance here is the people's welfare. If the mass wish to divert their attention to Hester and her wrongdoing, then they themselves with be overcome with restlessness in the end.
"Fear involves dread of punishment, from which they can never escape," Machiavelli states in his book The Prince. Although it is true that having a loved leader cuases people to want to stay in the city or country, in some ways it is better to have a feared leader because the citizens won't betray or disobey him. Reasons for this is because having a loved leader is more possible for things not to get done, and people would find ways to do a crime without getting caught. On the contrary, feared leaders are more responsible and he will make sure that no one does anything terrible. Though the feared leader punishes those who work against him, some still believe that they can make a difference and are highly respected.
Despite the fact that both of these people have somewhat similar approaches, their differences are essential. For instance, Miss Strangeworth wants to make the town a better place. She feels as if she is to watch over the town since her grandfather had started it. She notices the strange behavior from everyone and tries to help them see their obliviousness. She does this by
Which she interprets throughout the entire story not just in the three examples I have found. If we were to look back, you could probably find multiple cases of this, not just the three listed above. This also happens today in the world where people can’t find companionship, and they make some bad decisions. From this you have learned that you need to find that companionship because it helps you in life and can help from making bad decisions. This is greatly needed because there should not be a situation of innocent people being killed like in Mary Shelley’s
It is a necessity to possess this characteristic. This characteristic not only shows how you understand your job and how to help bring criminals to justice, but simply to show that you are not conceited and that you truly care about the case and the people affiliated. Thomas Danforth however, only cares about himself and his own reputation. We can see this in the play when he shows that he doesn’t mind convicting anyone to participating in witchcraft. He wants to show the villagers and other towns that he “can and did” put an end to the Salem witch trials.
In some ways, you could argue that both the misfit like the grandma are both good and evil. At the end, although the grandmother had made the misfit rethink his actions he had to regrettably kill her at the end. There was a moment of truth here, though, and that was that people are inherently flawed no matter how much good they are perceived to be. It is rather the acceptance of this flaw that creates better human
Thoreau defined it as, civil disobedience is any peaceful action that demonstrates the disagreement of a person or persons with their government. Thoreau was strongly against any violent act of protest, but should a person disagree with his/her government, Thoreau would encourage that person to do so in a peaceful manner. Civil disobedience serves the purpose of giving the people a say. For example, Thoreau stated, “Let every man make known what kind of government would command his respect, and that will be one step toward attaining it“ (Civil
