After all, the narrator “began to piece together this version of the story” through information given to him by Ethan Frome. Of course Zeena appears to be the epitome of the quintessential antagonist. It is only natural that bias was introduced, for Ethan would certainly not paint himself in a negative light, and due to his infatuation with Mattie, she too is spared from any condemnation. Through no fault of Ethan Frome or the narrator, the narrator’s “piecing together” of Ethan Frome’s life is incredibly unreliable and it is incredibly subjective. Unless a reader mulls over the effects of utilizing certain types of narration, Zeena will forever be seen as the villain of the story.
Yes, we are allowed freedom of speech, but should there be a limit on this freedom? We can only justify these points based on the Bible. Ephesians 4:29 states this point quite well. “Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying that it may minister grace unto the hearers.” Ephesians shows that we may use the law of freedom of speech only when what proceeds out of our mouth is edifying and useful to the situation and to those around us. Freedom of speech must always be used to an extent.
He thought this because he believed it involved that the elect that salvation that the elect could get could also be gained by the non elect person as a result of their own effort to salvation. Which I believe from my religion to not be true. I believe that anyone has the open and free will to receive salvation it's not only given to a specific group of people. But Calvin did not believe this to be true he believed that the reprobate are the people that God intentionally chooses to neglect, I don't believe that God neglects anyone that does not neglect him. John Calvin believed firmly in election and predestination and he backed his beliefs with biblical statements.
Thoreau states, “I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary.” Thoreau is contrasting his purpose with his resignation. He compares his life with a life he doesn't want. The similes in paragraph two are paired up with each of Thoreau ideas. By pairing them he is able to catch the reader's attention. By having similes to compare his ideas, the readers are able to understand what Thoreau point of view is on life.
But what is even more staggering is that this scattered narrator may be what truly brings the message of the book to life. Reliability of a narrator tends to fixate on the information that the narrator is exposed to and what they divulge to the readers. In the case of Slaughterhouse Five, the dependability of the narrator is questionable seeing as the soundness of their mind is an iffy debate. This argument is unexpected seeing as the narrator is most often expected to carry all knowledge of their world, but in this novel the information they indulge the readers with is scattered and seemingly a hallucination at times. It all started with one of the first lines of the fictional portion of the book: “Billy Pilgrim has come unstuck in time” (23).
Therefore, Twain has the right to use whatever words he wants in his novel, due to freedom of speech. If one does not approve of the word in the book, they have the choice to buy or not to buy it. In the novel, Huck says shows he has freedom of speech by not telling that Jim ran off. “People would call me a low-down Abolitionist and despise me for keeping mum—but that don 't make no difference. I ain 't a-going to tell”
“. The author uses the strategy hyperbole because he is saying that his freedom doesn’t matter when he is dead. Finally, “I want freedom, Just as you”. The author uses the strategy perspective because he thinks that everyone wants freedom and justice. Both authors do share the same desire, for justice and equality, but both have different opinions on democracy.
This private dick was careful not to past judgments on anyone, knowing that he also had a shady past to answer for. Through the first person narration of the novel, the reader is given a glimpse of Marlowe’s life through his own eyes and thoughts. His subtle turn-of phrase shines light on what he was really thinking at the time, and through these illuminations, the reader is given his priorities and values. Marlowe, for reasons I will discuss further, serves as a proxy for Chandler’s thoughts and feelings. This means that the values and priorities the reader sees in the novel could represent the author’s feelings as well.
Mill argued that as long as I am not harming anyone else, my “independence is, of right, absolute. Over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign.” While his take on utilitarianism was still questioned he also believed that we should maximize utility not case by case, but in the long run. With this practice in place, over time respecting individual liberties would lead to the greatest human happiness. In regards to the same ethical issue of Clementine erasing Joel from her memory, I believe Mill would potentially disagree with the overall procedure. Yes, Clementine is achieving happiness and she is free to do whatever she wants, but in the long run she is hurting Joel.
Existential Issues: William Craig mentioned that even Russel admitted that moral values can never be based on our personal taste and our decisions and he further said, "The point is that if there is no God, then objective right and wrong cannot exist" (Craig). I agree with him because God guides us to the path that leads to success and betterment of many people including ourselves. If we do not have faith in God then there's nothing that could go right since there would be no purpose and no fear of punishment or greed and passion for the reward that can make us follow what's right and wrong in life. “'If life ends at the grave, then we have no ultimate purpose for living'' (Craig). I'd say I agree with him to some extent because many of us
Strength and Weakness I believe that there is no perfect work. That is to say, every work has its own flaws; Davis’s book is not an exception. It is not an obscure that Davis’s work has few flaws. First, there is an exaggeration of using conjecture; while reading the book, I have noticed that Davis says words, such as “almost certainly,” "clearly," or "must have.” All of these expressions mean the author herself is not certainly sure of what is occurring, which is usually an indication that she is not quite sure. In fact, it is very seldom to find historians recourse to such thing only whenever is necessary.
• Every person has the right to have their own religious belief. • There should be a separation between the church and state. The Application of the Law to the Facts: • The word religion is not defined in the constitution. Therefore, people are allowed to have many beliefs. • In this case, Mr. Reynolds was following the rules of his religion because he was believing that it was a way to please his god.
This language can’t be faked or changed as it fits the human. this language eliminates the need for the missionaries, because all humans have it where every they go.” (Paine, 1794, P.100-101) Andrew took to this a little kindlier, however, he responded with, “So if the bible is false how can Job and Psalms 19 be right. They have no proof, and a human copied them from revelation from God. How can they be correct?” Thomas responded with, “You are one of these heathens? You believe that they are correct?
The film’s greatest strength was its ability to not force opinions, but compels viewers to form their own views. The point of the movie was to not persuade the audience, but let the audience think about what they thought was truly the right thing to do. Often this film would mention Martin Luther King Jr and Malcolm X, but would never declare a “better” approach. Smiley, a man with a severe stutter, makes a comment saying, “This is Malcolm X and this is Martin Luther King. They are dead, but we still have to fight against hate”.
Thusly, the principle of middle knowledge permits one to attest an extremely solid perspective of divine sovereignty in which nothing happens separated from God 's will or consent, and a libertarian perspective of human freedom in which individuals can do other than what they really do. To clarify on these statements I will be using a hypothetical situation to further my beliefs and standings. If God were to place John in Pilates position he (John) would choose to release Jesus by his own free actions, but God knows that this would go against his preordained plan. He chose to have made Pilate so his plans would go accordingly. Had God known that Pilate would choose to release Jesus He could have chosen not to create him.
