What does it feel like when something belongs to you and it is very special but suddenly someone more powerful than you threatens to take that thing from you and there is not a single thing that you can do about it but sit there helplessly, watching them take that thing you cared so much about from you. That is the situation that Patrick Henry is confronted with and the thing that is being taken from him is his freedom. He needs to convince the Americans to fight the British that are going to come to America and enslave all of its citizens. Although this may seem like a relatively simple task, Patrick Henry is faced with several problems. First of all he need to find a way to come up with a reasonable answer.
Mott had extreme views on slavery and because of this she was persecuted. This includes burning the Pennsylvania Hall in which she was working. However, even with this barrier, she was so convicted to continue that she kept working. She wanted to leave the world a better place than she found it.

The Odyssey and Speak both have many common archetypes. The characters suffer, and they go through rebirth and they also go through a sense of loss. In Speak Melinda was raped by one of her classmates and was keeping it a secret her entire freshman year, in the Odyssey, Odysseus was trapped on Calypso’s island for years and was forced to lay with Calypso. The characters’ rebirth in The Odyssey and Speak are both very similar; Melinda finally realizes it is okay to tell someone if something like that happens to her, and Odysseus finally makes it home and is able to feel clean again, and to be with his love Penelope. In both readings, the main characters go through a sense of loss, Odysseus is physically lost at sea, and is trying to make it back home, and Melinda has lost sense of who she is and doesn’t feel herself anymore.
If she were to change her point of view or look at it from another angle, she might have seen books as a door to opportunities and other possibilities. Nevertheless her close mindedness is what pushed her kids away, caused the death of her husband, and left her living alone. Moreover, Jenny, throughout the majority of the story gives the reader the ability to sense that she is scared. This fear is what caused her life and most of the people that are in it to take an unfortunate turn, which is what makes her such a powerful character.

In Julia’s case, it might have been that she was textbook thinking like a woman, but to her, it was because she had endured bullying throughout middle school and high school. Julia had become extremely self-conscious, so when Gavin joked at her expense, it brought back the painful memories of
It’s batshit crazy. It’s Cthulhu. Just witnessing its majesty is enough to shred mortal psyches. I’ll attempt to detail my descent into madness below. According to E-40, “Life is something you can’t borrow and give back; Here today and gone tomorrow…just like that” This dude must have played a lot of Siege, because every life is precious in this game.
They may have not had all the power to themselves but they did get a say on who to rule the country's they lived in because of their husbands. Both Macduff's and Hitler's wife's died the same way which was suicide they were witness to their husbands crime and also share holders of the power so the power not only corrupted the people that held it but the people that shared it as well or the people around who witnessed it. Power can destroy anyone who uses it the wrong way its like the saying " what goes around comes right back around ten times harder". Macbeth and Hitler killed and their wife's were just there to witnessed it but did not stand against the husbands. Maybe if they did they would have not received the punishment they got or maybe it wasn’t a punishment it might have just been Karma.
Slavery is wrong because it take away a person’s true identity, their lives is no longer theirs and is controlled by someone else, whom control every aspect of the slave. Douglass endured lots of whippings, along with many other slaves, during his years with Master Auld. “They have been entirely deprived of the power to read and write. You have kept them in utter ignorance” (Frederick Douglass) Frederick Douglass believed that God created all people equal. However, he also believed that we weren't just born free and that we have to make ourselves into whom we are.
The fact is that because her name was pure in Salem, almost everybody trusted her. Abigail Williams accused lots of people in Salem, even people with a good reputation and good souls; she wanted to save herself so she did wrong things. In act III, she pretend that she was possessed by Mary Warren, repeating everything Mary said. How we can see, she was not a sane woman; after being the good niece from Reverend Parris to being a horrible and pitiless woman. She started the rumors of witchcraft in the whole Salem just to stay with John, doing impossible things to keep herself saved and to keep John.
Sometimes in we know things are wrong but this rive some people to want to do it even more. How I see it is Felicia Robinson opponent wanted to win so bad that they decide to twist the facts and push people to think about a heated subject. When Felica district attorney found out about the schema and decide to use it, for their advantage shows that any good morals could be turned to something wrong. Felica has a very tough choice, and most likely would have to make a decision soon. One thing Felicia has to remember is this Is a campaign.
During this time the colonies remained loyal to Britain. But, after this Britain went of control with power. They set up many unfair taxes and made the colonists like slaves to them.

Normal civilians forced to house soldiers in their homes, a state where you are constantly being taxed without representation, and only being thought of as a revenue stream for the crown. All of the things previously mentioned sound quite a lot like a totalitarian state and one anyone would revolt in. This helps to create the narrative in which the American colonists lived in, the times were very hard for the colonist because of the British oppression going on within the colonies. So yes, the American colonists were justified in declaring their independence due to the acts the British government put in place to oppress them. The American colonies under British rule had plenty of right to revolt due to harsh and harmful British law.
The author thinks women can hardly wear anything without a fear of being judged. She provides few pieces of evidence on how women usually are targeted and not men in this society in respect to interpretation. She argues on how different forms have Mr. as a suffix which shows nothing, but in the case of women there is Mrs. and also Miss which reflects the marital status of women. She raises her point also about how a woman changes her surname with the men after marriage. I personally believe that she had some evidence and her argument really made me think twice o and made me think why women are judged so much and she was also definitely true in her argument.
The authors use pathos to grab us by our emotions and make us want to keep reading about such a historically powerful but terrible group. To do so they use powerful, livid, and emotional language. Levitt and Dubner help us to remember how terrible the Ku Klux Klan was and the repulsive things they did to not just “black people” but to human beings that did in no way deserve what they had to go through during slavery and even after with language that appeals to the senses. “The early Klan did its work through pamphleteering, lynching, shooting, burning, castrating, pistol-whipping, and a thousand forms of intimidation” (52). Levitt and Dubner start right off the bat using a rhetorical strategy called appeal to pity by very vividly listing the things the Ku Klux Klan did to their victims.
