This idea of leadership style, combined with looking at what Theodore Roosevelt did during his presidency, is very similar to Trump’s way of leading our nation, although they came into office with different political experience.
On the contrary, in Chapter 24-28, the Duke and the King’s attempt to con the Wilks family in order to get their wealth is hardly justifiable due to the fact that the sole reason was to benefit themselves at the cost of the innocents. Although the King tried to justify his con by saying that Mary Jane, Susan, and Joanna will have enough to live off of, his scheme to take money and property away from the rightful owner clearly harms the Wilks. Huck knew their con was different from some of his own

Montag did was he thought was right according to him because Montag thought that he was protecting himself and Faber, killing him to give society a chance to change, and because Beatty did not want to live anymore.

John Locke’s ideas were used by Dr. Stahmer in the Nuremburg Trials. Locke’s ideas were also contradicted Dr. Stahmer, because Locke feels that everyone is equal and would never help with hurting the Jews.
