This is partially seen in the movie, The Children of Huang Shi, when George Hogg and Chen Hansheng are discussing the Nationalists and the Communists. In the film, the Japanese armies are attacking China and massacring the people. However, also during that time, the Nationalists and Communists were locked in a civil war. Honor would dictate that these two opposing factions set aside their differences for the time being in order to combat the foreign troops killing their people. However, they care little for honor and choose to continue fighting each other.
In “The Warrior’s Heart” by Eric Greitens the reader is shown many examples of perseverance and courage. Some examples are the final kung fu test, boxing, drown proofing, and hell week. For example in the final kung fu test the shifu was placing a sword to the throats of the students. Eric did not want to do this because he was afraid he would fail and the sword would wound him. However Eric conquered the fear and passed the test, this shows courage because most people would back out but Eric did not.
Introduction In 1876, Captain Nathan Algren, an ex- United States Army Captain is traumatized by experience fighting in the civil war and Indian war. Algren accepts a job by a Japanese businessman to train the Imperial Japanese Army to inhibit a samurai rebellion, led by Katsumoto Moritsugu. He sails to Japan. Most of the soldiers being trained are just slightly better than peasants and farmers that are not experienced. The training is cut off when the samurai rebels attack a railroad owned by Omura (Joshi, 2015).
He uses words that are not wishy-washy, instead firm, on one side of pride or the other. Some such words are “proud” and “particular shame” when describing Paret and “brave” when describing the referee that eventually stopped Griffith from pounding Paret all the way into the ground. By using concrete words that have a firm standing in the reader’s mind, Mailer logically convinces those reading, and who possibly have not formed their own opinions about boxing yet, that the sport itself is one filled to the brim with integrity, even the death of Benny Paret has a proud, fierce air about it. The description of his death is still proving the point of integrity in boxing because it maintains the understanding that Paret is one of the strongest fighters, and that all can be brought down. He continues this understanding that began in the first paragraph with “unusual ability to take a punch” with the phrase describing his death being “he went down more slowly than any fighter had ever gone down, he went down like a large ship which turns on end and slides second by second into its grave.” By keeping Paret as a strong figure throughout the piece, he maintains the integrity of the sport through describing what believes is one of the strongest fighters.
He is superior to other men, has heroic virtues, shows great capacity for emotion, and is rebellious. Malloy’s above strength and talent as a pugilist puts him above the other dockworkers, and he certainly presents pride, which is the greatest of a hero’s virtues according to Aristotle. The depth of guilt Malloy displays over Joey Doyle’s murder and the grief he displays over his brother Charley’s murder illustrate his sensibility. Lastly, Malloy’s Satanic rebellion is his decision to testify against Friendly rather than continue the deaf and dumb policy; by speaking up, he rebels against Friendly’s authority, breaks the social norms of the community, and creates chaos among the established
By being beaten and enslaved through no fault of his own, this was a very trying time for him. Louie shows his agency by reminding himself constantly that he can be stronger than Watanabe and not bend to his will. He shows this with the quote “All he knew was a single thought: he cannot break me”(Hillenbrand 213). Louie’s rebellious side was also shown in his time in the camps, forming a meeting with other officers to capture and kill Watanabe. He shows his rebellious side against Watanabe as well when he, within the previously mentioned group,
They are taught that the emperor is the most important thing in the universe and dying for him is seen as a medal of honor. Dying in war was an honorable thing in the minds of the japanese; therefore seeing people surrendering was like seeing a dead skunk on the side of the road. The japanese pow camps were a lot worse than the german camps. In the german camps the prisoners had to go through medical experiments, malnutrition, forced labor, \ Kronk 3 and gas chambers. In the japanese pow camps the prisoners had to go through random torture, forced labor in terrible conditions, malnutrition, people dying everywhere, and something the prisoners called “give-up-itus.” Give-up-itus was when a person stopped caring about anything; they just did what they were told until they were overworked and/or murdered.
No big son-of-a-b**** is gonna laugh at me." Curley says this because he wanted to show everyone in the room that he had the most power by beating up Lennie.
