In the Crucible having a good name and being accepted into society, is more important to Proctor, Parris, and Danforth then the lives of innocent people. Proctor being a model citizen and well liked does not want to tell the truth about his affair with Abigail. Next Parris is looked at as a churchly figure, he does not want to go against the bible and speak out. Lastly Danforth is viewed as making the right decisions in court, but he later sees that he has sentenced the wrong people to death, he says nothing so he can protect his name and not be questioned. Based on their character decisions in the Crucible, it 's clear that keeping your reputation is very important if you want a good name and to be accepted
He believed that a person’s conscience should not be subject to power and suppressed by the civil authorities. On the other hand, Michel de Montaigne also developed his ideas toward the religion wars. He expressed his opinions by stating that instead of leaning into cruelty and wealth, religion should destroy vices and lead toward goodness (Document 11). John Milton, who was an English poet that lived through the Puritan Revolution, had also revealed his beliefs toward the freedom of individuals. However, as the last sentence implied that people should rejoice at, instead of arguing and grieving.
Social Norms in comparison to Honest Morality of Huck Finn Nelson Mandela once said, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of shin, or his background or his religion. People learn to hate, and if they learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than opposite.” Nelson Mandela criticizes society by saying that it is the society’s own fault that people are being discriminated and not strong enough to speak up for their thoughts. He also says that it is possible for society to change but it takes brave challenges to realise it. In the novel the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Huck escapes society and civilization by fleeing onto the Mississippi river with a slave who becomes his best friend over this adventure in which Huck learns a lot about racism and human behaviors. In the novel, Mark Twain demonstrates
Second Argument: P6: Death is the relocation of a person’s soul from here to another place. (stated) Because we are both religious people, we believe this statement to be true as well as the first argument that death is a lack of perception. We believe that religious people’s souls relocate to a better place if they have good deeds in their lives while those who are christians, but have not done good deeds have their souls relocated to a worse place. The difference between the first argument and this one is that those who are not religious are just nothing. P7: Bad people’s souls relocate to Hades whereas good people’s souls relocate to where the Gods are (Heaven) (stated).
Paine also states that the colonists should end it all with perseverance and pride so we don't look like cowards. “ by perseverance and fortitude we have the prospect of a glorious issue” (Paine, paragraph 13). If they go out there and fight they will have a chance of winning their freedom rather than just letting the British rule over them. Many colonists would have thought that fighting for their liberty would have been supported by their god so they wouldn't feel guilty for going through with the act. Using pathos influenced the colonists because if you use common beliefs and morals, it tells the public you will be on their side and you know how to win this
People all have equal rights in our country, but some people discriminate others because of their religion, race, looks, personalities, disabilities, and the list goes on. But luckily, there are people who follow King’s example and don’t judge people like that. I think I live out Martin Luther’s dream by accepting anyone for who they are. People don’t choose how they want to look, or what race they are, it’s how they’re born and no one should be put down by people just because of their
The style of writing portrayed in this nonfiction journal best relates to a dystopian future for our society. The purpose of this writing would be to show that the world could be a much simpler place to live in if civilization was treated equally. With everyone born as humans no matter the color of our skin or the ethnicity that we were raised in it raises many to question why we cannot treat one another equally and why we do not get along or respect one another. While we are not any closer to figuring out why our world kills its own kind over feuds, I believe religion plays a big factor in why certain cultures are enemies. One culture and one religion has to always be better than the other there is no equality.
Hypocrisy was manifested in the fact that many colonists had faired the seas seeking religious tolerance and an end to persecution for themselves, but they could not seem to, for the most part, extend this tolerance to other groups. Furthermore, the Christian religion, at least as it is presented in the Bible, condemns the use of violence and a self-serving love of riches. There were certainly examples of great men like William Penn who displayed a sense of shared humanity with the Natives and a truly democratic plan of government, which I myself would have advocated, that would have been useful in building a multi-cultural nation, but such men were few and far between. This is further complicated by economic considerations that many colonists had. That the United States could become a superpower with a completely humanitarian outlook, assuming it needed to become a superpower (which it did not), is a near impossibility.
So anything they do they do have to reflect what Jesus preached and did like choosing to live his life like the poor to emphasize how unhealthy and selfish it is to live like a king when there are so many people that don’t have anything. On the other hand, mainstream Christianity uses their religion as a way to make them feel more superior than everyone else that doesn’t believe in exactly what they believe in. They use this belief of superiority to justify the domination of others like Christopher Columbus did to the Native Americans when he came to their land. He thought they were savages just because they were different than him and didn’t believe in the same God as him. Mainstream Christianity supports this idea that they are the only ones that deserve privilege.
Atheism 2.0 possess the characterizations of empowerment, tolerance, and optimism. Atheism 2.0 gives off a more uplifting and positive vibe rather than the tone previously given by New Atheism. Atheism 2.0 does make some arguments but does not outright argue against religion. In a video by The Human Project, they state their disapproval of religion by stating "A 1,000 years ago, we were all God 's creation, except the guys next door were heathens." The Human Project is pointing out their discontentment with the doctrine of religion and the hypocrisy they see in it.
