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.
On the other hand, Katniss is suspicious of his behavior, and believes he is just pretending to be nice, but she realizes that he is just being himself. She states in the book, “Peeta Mellark, on the other hand, has obviously been crying and interestingly enough does not seem to be trying to cover it up. I immediately wonder if this will be his strategy in the Games. To appear weak and frightened, to reassure the other tributes that he is no competition at all, and then come out fighting.” (Collins, 2008, p.49)
Although those are good reasons to kill him lennie also did many good things to and therefor is why there is so many reasons why some people consider what George did wrong and it therefore doesn't make what George did justified due to him being his best friend and how he told so many people how he was looking out for lennie so he doesn't get in trouble on his own also for example lennie's aunt Claire and Carlson and curly dad therefore showing that he was lying about how he felt about lennie he even told lennie himself that his life would be easier without him Although some people believe George was wrong and some believe he was wright there are many reasons why it can go either way just because it can be considered euthanasia and due to lenine being considered a nuisance to himself and others but on the other hand it some say it isn't because lennie didn't get a say in whether or not on if he could live or die therefore making it not euthanasia but murder Therefore in conclusion George killing lennie is a huge topic that can go either way so to truly understand the topic you must read the book or watch the movie and come up with your own opinion on whether or not if what George did was euthanasia or just plain old
Consider the way that reputation is so important to so many characters in Salem, which is a place where even the most innocuous action or word is enough to crush somebody's reputation. And if either of these characters have a bad reputation then people will know not to trust the ones that have a bad reputation on the line. You can only trust the ones who have good reputations but John Proctor on the other hand he represented why he would not take the document he has good reasons to observe why he didn't want his name to be out
Guilt is a big motivator for many of people's actions because most people don’t want to offend anyone, especially if they want to uphold a certain reputation, like a man with political power. To his advantage, with an accusatory, critical, yet reverent tone, Banneker makes sure that Jefferson, a man with political power, understands the hypocritical actions of the nation and feels ashamed of the suffering which has gone on, hopefully enough to make a difference in the injustice which the United States has
Trump also using artifice to draw attention from one area he lacks to another that makes him look worthy of his presidential status. While everyone's intentions are different whilst using artifice, the results tend to be completely different. Even if the developments are good, artifice is still used by self-indulgent people, and that is why it is a terrible
A hateful response will shut off someone’s heart, but a forgiving response opens their eyes to new views, thus accountability in hypocrisy opens new peaceful views instead of hateful
If they did not show this scene the audience/reader may not believe Oedipus is capable of the murders at the crossroads. It’s like Tiresias makes Oedipus angry on purpose so the audience/reader figures out the truth without him actually saying it. W. J. Verdenius quotes, “Tiresias is at once a traditionalist and an exceedingly clever man.” Tiresias’ ironic behavior and attitude towards revealing prophecy makes him symbolic to the
Another common counterpoint is that people believe when you are lying you are unnecessarily complicating your life . For example Brad Blanton an author says lying is stressful and hurts relationships .(5) This is an understandable concern, however it does not because if you are lying in a relationship it is probably because you don’t want your date to get upset and you both will have a bad night . I believe that lying is okay in our society .
A respected author John Green questions, "Why is being a nerd bad? Saying I notice you 're a nerd is like saying, ‘Hey I knows that you 'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you 'd rather be thoughtful of them be vapid, that you believe that there things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan and why is that?” Many people who are passionate about their studies question the same thing. Leonid Fridman wrote a passage “America Needs its Nerds” in order to raise concern that our society does not value intelligence. Fridman uses compare and contrast to get his point across to the readers.
The balance is essential between both because if he practices generosity it becomes so self-consuming that the more you practice it, the less you will be able to continue the practice, this is due to the use of all resource and prevents the continued generosity; this would inevitably lead to the state despising the prince. “Therefore, it is shrewder to cultivate a reputation for meanness, which will lead to notoriety but not hatred. This is better than being forced, through wanted to be considered generous, to incur a reputation for rapacity, which will lead to notoriety and to hatred as well”. Cruelty and mercifulness, A question arises whether it is better to be loved or feared, or vice versa? “My view is that it is desirable to be both loved and feared; but it is difficult to achieve both and, if one of them has to be lacking, it is much safer to be feared than loved”.
Imagine you chose to kill your best friend, What if you had no other choice? That happened in this case, George shot his close friend Lennie that was handicapped. George did the right thing in shooting Lennie. He would just ruin/slow down George’s plans.
Steinbeck shows that there is a great price to be paid for not being sensitive to the needs of others as well as for taking responsibility for others. We see this take place in the novel Of Mice and Men where characters of the book are vulnerable,heartless, insensitive, and sensitive. A price is to be paid for all of these characteristics. The vulnerable characters in Of Mice and Men include Lennie, Candy, and Crooks.
Mental Floss states, “The novella is ranked as the fifth most frequently challenged piece of literature on the American Library Association’s list of 100 Most Banned of Challenged Book between 2000 and 2009.” The book, “Of Mice and Men,” is from the point of view through a struggling man’s viewpoint and a mentally challenged man’s viewpoint during the Great Depression. Lennie is a troublemaker for George, and sometimes George has to make big decisions about so of his priorities throughout his life. I believe George did do the right thing by killing Lennie himself because George would rather have Lennie die with him doing it rather than anyone else, George knew he would act up again if he let him come with him, and George believes it was the best choice to make in the situation. Some people believe that George had another way out.
