The topic im talking about is from Mice and Men written by John Steinbeck. My argument is George should have killed Lennie because Curley would have killed him anyway. My second reason is if George didn’t Kill Lennie he would have died a more slow and painful death. The other side of the argument is that they were very close friends and Lennie never did anything to get killed. My first reason George should have shot Lennie is that Lennie would have suffered because Curley would have only shot him in the gut and let him die slowly.
The most selfish reason was the fact that all of his personal belongings and crops would have been affected. He made this massacre about himself by saying: “My own dwelling, my people, cattle, corn, and tobacco will be lost” (HR, p. 99). Although his views were reasonable, at that moment it was necessary to bring the topic up when there were a large amount of people’s lives at stake. Another reason, which was more logical than selfish, was that he was not consulted. As a member of the “Twelve Men” he should have been talked to before making the decision (HR, p. 98).
It’s a sin to kill a mockingbird like it was a sin to kill Tom. Tom Robinson did not die in vain, all he did was try to help out and be good to this world. He did no harm, but had to die because he was a Negro. So, he had to be lying right? Another example shown was “Well, it’d be sort of like shootin’ a mockingbird, wouldn’t it?” says Scout on page 276.
Minor details include dragon teeth generating warriors, Harpies disturbing King Phineus, and the Golden Fleece in the shape of a ram. However, even these similarities have their own interpretations. For example, the film states the Argonauts encounter Talos before capturing the Golden Fleece, where the story states they come across after their journey to Colchis. The people who killed Talos varies on top of that; Jason kills Talos in the movie Medea kills Talos in the
He has provided information that indicates he shot Lennie Small out of self defence, when we have the testimony of Candy proving that George had stolen Carlson’s gun and had to kill Lennie himself. He has deliberately told us that Lennie stole Mr Tyler’s luger when there is more than enough evidence to contradict that. If you were to not agree that he is morally wrong for killing another human being, he is guilty for committing perjury. He has given his oath to speak nothing but the truth, but instead, he lies in the one situation where telling the absolute truth will be the most beneficial towards him. Currently, euthanasia is illegal in America, and neither was it during the 1930’s.
In the story of The Great Gatsby, people might have different opinions on who is to blame for the downfall of Gatsby. My belief is that Gatsby himself is to blame for his own fall. The first thing that Gatsby did to jeopardize his fall was moving across the bay, where he always had an eyes view of Daisy. Then the next thing that he did was not respecting the fact the Daisy and Tom were married and had a child together. The final thing that he did was trying to cover for Daisy and not telling the truth about what actually happened after the accident with Myrtle.
By only hearing one side, individuals are there by limited and constricted to a less knowledgeable idea of the truth. Slaughterhouse-Five focuses on several worldly tragedies and international events. The Dresden and Hiroshima bombings are specifically mentioned multiple times. However, it lacks the depth that would come with the addition of the oppressed groups’ point of views. The missing viewpoint is highlighted when it states, “Sixteen hours ago an American airplane dropped one bomb on Hiroshima, an important Japanese Army base” (185).
George Orwell’s “Shooting an Elephant” George Orwell’s essay “Shooting an Elephant” is a “perplexing” account of life in India during times of British rule, through the eyes of a European Police Officer. His experience contains matters of oppression, conflict, and feelings that help to reveal the true, evil nature of Imperialism. Oppression is one of the faces of evil in this essay. The first instance of oppression is when we learn the conditions of being a Burman. The Burmese people, due to the British, live in huts and are overruled by British Imperialists.
George knew he had to shoot Lennie because if he didn’t do it, the other guys would and it wouldn’t be calm or quick. I think George killed Lennie because he knew it was the right thing to do. It’s obvious that Lennie has a mental illness and it makes it difficult for him to understand things. For example, when he grabbed the lady’s red dress in Weed, he didn’t realize he was doing anything wrong. He also didn’t realize that touching Curley’s wife’s hair was wrong until he accidentally murdered her.
Many families lost their children. I can’t imagine losing my son or daughter to something tragic as this. From High School, Nightclub, to Elementary schools being targeted by assault weapons is not a wake up call for the gun industries to ban the usage and sales of guns, then what is? Another tragedy would have to be a church that was unexpectedly targeted by a man who came in and took innocent lives due to his different beliefs. According to the Washington Post, “Roof killed not one person, but nine, and “he killed them because of the color of their skin” (Zapotosky).
The texts are all very different in nature because they target different audiences. Comparing and contrasting the different texts will help us understand how audience and purpose affect the structure and content of texts There is a story. George Orwell, the famous writer, shot an elephant whilst serving in the Indian Imperial Police in Burma. This event forms the basis for Orwell 's essay 'Shooting an Elephant '. Not everyone, however, believes or agrees that, in fact, Orwell really shot an elephant.
The number of innocent victims killed by the bombing is alarming and Vonnegut keeping with his anti war theme made it a point to center his novel around the Dresden bombing which increased knowledge of what the historical city Dresden once was. Vonnegut wanted to “try to write my war story, whether it was interesting or not, and try to make something out of it.” Vonnegut wanted to make a significant point across about the horrors of the war stating several times he is currently writing an anti war novel(******). The main character Billy is broken from the war, which is clearly stated in (*******). Showing what Vonnegut went through through Billy described the Dresden bombing as the worst bombing and experience that any prisoner of war had
First of two start of, the most rhetorically influential element of this story is the authors background. While George Orwell is a well-known for being an English author and journalist, he is very famous for being a political satirist. In this story, the audiences can see Orwell’s personal opinions on social and political views. In “Shooting an Elephant,” readers detected Orwell’s opinions on imperialism through the narrator’s display of pathos. Throughout the story, the narrator shows feelings of hatred, doubt, fear, anxiety, and distress at the fact that he is in a position of mocked authority.
In conclusion the quote “Remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird” teaches Scout and the reader that it would be wrong to kill or harm something good and innocent in the world because they are good and innocent, would make the world a worse place, and they do for us it. Finally think how you have treated people who are mockingbirds, how can you do something for them in return, and how can you become one of these people
Instead of abandoning them and taking their supplies to kill them, he just did it to benefit himself. Either way, they would’ve died, and he would’ve deserved his death. General MacArthur: He “deliberately sent his wife’s lover, Arthur Richmond, to his death.” Here is another case where the person didn’t kill someone themselves, but caused their death intentionally. He sent Richmond because he knew that anyone who went would be killed, and therefore technically commit murder. If he believes Richmond should have died for doing something to him, then he deserves his death because he did something to someone else as well.
