Statsky also mentions the rash selection criteria the children are put through and only the one that already know how to play beforehand are selected. This leaves the children depressed and disappointed. In the end, Jessica Statsky tries to make readers aware that the well-being of their child is more than coming home with a trophy. (Word count: 179) Strong Response I strongly agree with Jessica Stastky essay “Children Need to Play, Not Compete.”
A hero should always do well by his followers; Richard only proved to be loyal to himself only. He abused his people by saying he was “enforced to farm our royal realm, the revenue whereof shall furnish us” (1.4.45-46). King Richard taxed the poor to fund his luxuries and wars, without thinking of how it affected his people. King Richard thought like a man instead of a king and this lead him to not only losing his tittle, but his credibility. Instead of becoming a tragic hero, he became a tragic fool; not only did he abdicate his thrown, because he could not handle the pressure, he showed that was not fit to be a king, even if he was born for it.
Martin Luther King a famous social activist once stated, “we must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.” When referring to these words it is shown how forgiving we can be for people that we hate or dislike. In William Golding's book The Lord of the Flies his character Jack shows the actions of power, fear, and acceptance. People in power are more afraid of losing that power because it may show you as a failure, and to take control is much easier than taking responsibility for actions because there may be consequences, but most of all forgiveness is the hardest to do because it is just too hard to let go.
“I do not judge you. The magistrate sits in your heart that judges you. I never thought you but a good man, John (with a smile), only somewhat bewildered” (Miller 1295). The quote shows evidence of what Elizabeth is feeling towards her husband.
Mildred and her friends believe that reading anything that causes emotion to come out is bad. Mildred’s friends voted for their president based on how handsome he was compared to the other candidate, “’I think he’s one of the nicest looking men to become president”’ (Bradbury 93). They didn’t vote for the good of the country. Mildred and her friends are defiantly ignorant and this is proven in their actions.
When the teacher forbids the questions Equality asks, it shows the limitations of his knowledge since he cannot learn more than he already knows. The society believed that being better than the rest of their ‘brothers’ is immoral. Having more knowledge than another meant more individuality and the society did not appreciate that. Individuality is a characteristic that differentiates one person from another, it is what makes one person themselves. The society in Anthem removes the idea of individuality.
(Rand, p.71). Similarly, in communism and collectivism, people are expected do things for the group rather than themselves. Just as Equality’s invention of light was rejected, Rand’s novel The Fountainhead was also rejected by many publishing
In the first chapter, Baron Thunder-ten-trockh and the Baroness are introduced to represent the pretentiousness attitudes of the noble. Although he has no honest qualifications to be the Baron, his position of power is simply justified by his lineage and who he was born to. The Baroness, Candide's mother, even refuses to wed Candide's father because "he could only claim seventy-one quarterings" (Voltaire 19). These two characters are meant to represent the lack of a true hierarchy during this time; there is no difference between commoners and the noble. Voltaire formulated the Baron and Baroness to condemn the supposed class ranks and to show these positions are all only based on luck and connections.
Everyone, except for Cash, begins to think he is mad when in reality he tried to “hide her away from the sight of man” (215). Cash saw this in Darl thinking that “Sometimes I think it aint none of us pure crazy and aint none of us pure sane until the balance of us talks him that-a-way” (233) Cash is the only person in the Bundren family who saw Darl going to the mad-house as a good thing without having to hide their “inner truth.” Cash said Darl going away from the family “is better so for him. This world is not his world; this life his life”
Having kids play competitive sports many times contains of middle schoolers developing a poor attitude because they think they 're better than everyone else . Although many people argue that the young teens learn to become a “better sport” , see things differently such as trying hard for what they want. Others argue that teens nowadays don 't known how to have fun, they 'll take things more serious than it needs to be. I will argue that kids who play in competitive sports are more likely to develop a bad attitude in which nobody wants their child to have. My first reason has to deal with the attitude of the parents can tend to lead their teens to acting the same.
One final thing parents can do on the off chance that they see their children doing something incorrectly, they must tell the child that the activity isn 't right. This will offer the kid some assistance with beginning to make the separation between good and bad conduct. It is a reality today that TV impacts a kid just as much as a parent. Kids see characters on TV they find fascinating, and after that impersonate activities of the character on the screen. Most kids spend numerous hours staring at the TV.
Words are the most compelling drugs used by humanity. In “Resistance to Civil Government” and “Letter from Birmingham Jail”, Thoreau and King showed that if words are used properly in society, they can make a difference. Injustice is a huge deal for both Thoreau and King. They talked about their beliefs and told people to stand up for themselves in the government. If they really want something, they need to speak up, no matter what the consequence will be.
Welcome to those of the Commonwealth Club of California. Today, I would like to address a matter important to us all lately, especially under our current administration and recent employed laws utilizing some ideas about government put forth by Henry David Thoreau. I will provide you with my personal recommendation throughout this speech. Really, there are three basic “camps” when it comes to how people should protest and change laws and unacceptable views and positions commonly held by those in their governmental bodies.
“Civil Disobedience" is an essay written by Henry David Thoreau who was an “American transcendentalist society in 1849” (“Give Me Liberty”, chap 9). In this essay Thoreau argued that people should not allow their government to override or weaken their consciences because they have a duty to avoid allowing any agreement to authorize the government to make them the proper workers of discrimination. An evidence that gives us this form of information is “The government itself, which is only the mode which the people have chosen to execute their will, is equally liable to be abused and perverted before the people can act through it” (“Civil Disobedience”, par 1, pg 1). Thoreau meant that the government sometimes proves itself useful and that it
