He cared greatly about his family and wife even though Elizabeth was often distant towards him. In the end of the play, Proctor chooses to die rather than sign his confession, ratting out his friends and ruining his good name in the town. He did this to protect the reputation of his children so they won’t have to grow up with a lying father. Lying went against Protctors’ views and that ideal is prevalent throughout the entire play. It is revealed that as soon as he had an affair with Abigail, he confessed to Elizabeth the next day because of the guilt he was carrying around.
Martin holds his father in high esteem, he admires him for his courage and enlightenment. “The beer company did not hire Blacks or Puerto Ricans, so my father joined the picket line” (Espada) This demonstrates his father’s instinctive reaction to pursue social equality.

Discovery of such history had a profound impact on Equality such as when he read the word “I”. It is through man’s writing in which Equality came to understand “the blessed thing which (he) had called (his) curse” (98). This writing had such a positive impact on Equality that he decided to “write the first chapter of new history of man” so that it would be eternal (101). It is through his writing, that Prometheus will be remembered not as a number, but as a hero who vanquishes collectivism. His eternal message cautions the reader of the dangers of an irrational society so that someday man will think twice before chaining himself to the word

Douglass makes sure to remind his audience that their “fathers were wise men”, and so their decision to engage in violent resistance was just as well a wise decision (Douglass 111). Perhaps the most compelling argument Douglass makes throughout the entirety of the speech is that The United State’s fathers “were peace men; but they preferred revolution to peaceful submission to bondage. You may well cherish the memory of such men” (Douglass 113). Including this points out how America’s founding fathers are cherished for the change they brought about through the means of violent resistance. If they could be celebrated for such actions, how can the enslaved be so reprimanded for taking part in the same determined fight?
Jimmy Carter’s approach in this case is best represented by the political maxim that it’s better to receive than to give. He never helped the people he reached out to but he knew they would help him. Instead of helping the congressional
Imagine you live in a world where you are punished for being ever so slightly better than average, and anyone who wants to compete with their fellow citizens are handicapped in some way so that no one is superior. What would you do? Would you follow along like a helpless sheep, unable to speak your opinion? Would happiness and joy fill your mind because you’re afraid that everyone would shun you due to your incompetence, or would you fight for your right to be a unique individual who has their own strengths and weaknesses. In the story, “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, jr., the main character, Harrison, did just that, he fought a corrupt government and tried to release the people from their torturous bonds.
