George turned his head and listened to the shouts,” this shows the urgency of the situation and how the death of Lennie was impossible to veer from (pg. 107). George’s actions show the love that contains for Lennie. The death of Lennie was an inescapable act that required a well thought out expeditious
Without irony an author’s story will not be as interesting and will not keep the reader or audience’s attention for too long. Above dramatic irony was very sufficient because the reader knew about John’s affair, although Reverend Hale was unaware. This may have grabbed the reader’s attention more and lead them to suspension as to how or if Hale would find out. In my example of verbal irony, it was used in a form of sarcasm when it almost seems as if the outcome was backwards. For instance the innocents should live while the accused should be the one to die.
Some may say that George made mistakes too. Yes, George made mistakes such as telling Lennie to hit Curley, but none of his mistakes caused deaths. Furthermore, he didn’t have a disability. Lennie’s disabilities and innocence was what differed the effect of their mistakes. George made an excellent decision by killing Lennie.
This means that despite the impacts of the war, many in America still believed that America’s role (and the best way to achieve its interests) was by leaving other nations alone. This is because the war was extremely unpopular. Many Americans did not trust that President Wilson campaigned for reelection on a platform of anti-war, but then got the United States involved. They also distrusted that he had promised a just peace in his fourteen point plan, but ended up with secret land deals and a punishing Treaty of Versailles, as opposed to a rehabilitory treaty. As a result, the irreconcilables in Congress voted multiple times to strike down the League of Nations.
He protested the government’s war the by not paying his taxes which landed him a night in jail. Thoreau believed that citizens had no obligation to obey a higher law if it went against their belief system. Thoreau encouraged others to do as he did and not pay the taxes to a government
Government officials agreed with the Espionage and Seditions Acts. The Acts were passed so that people could not say any statements that could interfere with the success of winning the war. People in the United States wanted to win the war, so they were willing to give up some of their rights. In 1918, Charles T. Schenck was convicted because he violated the Espionage Act. The Supreme Court said that “When a nation is at war many things which might be said in time of peace are such a hindrance to its efforts that their utterance will not be endured as long as men fight.” They upheld his conviction and sent him to prison.
“Inevitably, it was no sooner known that my new play was about Salem than I had to confront the charge that such an analogy was specious -- that there never were any witches but there certainly are Communists. (Miller, Why I wrote The Crucible)” Miller was guilty of egocentrism. He devalued the witches of the trials because he didn’t live through them while he did live through The Red Scare. Though the hysteria of the witch trials were very real. The people of the time were just as paranoid and fearful as Miller and his contemporaries were of the Communists.
His eagerness to find the truth, yet not get caught in the mob set him apart from the other judges. He is the first in the court to question their justice, and inevitably loses all former weight he held in the court, mainly due to his own exodus. With this the voice of reason in the novel is also crushed, leaving only false accusations and hysteria. The day John Proctor is scheduled to hang, Mary Warrens deposition, and his first arrival in Salem all shaped him into the desperate character the reader witnesses and sympathizes with at the end of The Crucible by Arthur
But they fail to realize that the system we have now throws anyone in jail no matter if the person committed the crime or not. They also fail to realize that the current system sentencing isn't organized or fair because there are people out there innocent and people who don’t deserve that time that was given for petty crimes. The current system doesn’t seek for justice, they see everyone who gets arrested as a criminal and feels they should be thrown away for a very long time and that isn't fair. Sentencing reforming is highly recommended due to the outrageous modern sentencing practices we have today. People go to jail or maybe even prison for such petty crimes that doesn't deserve the many years that were given to them.
The rules in Anthem include the word I being destroyed and erased from history being replace by us and we. Anyone who says I will be killed.

I think you brought some good points regarding Maureen’s plagiarism at the end of your first paragraph. Even though she found out that Joe Biden was accused of plagiarism and knew that plagiarism is something that none should have done, she did the same thing. If a person do the something wrong in regardless of what a person realized before, it is not an accident. It is wrong and intentional. I think we already learn about plagiarism and heard of it enough, so we should not doing it and do it our own just like how you pointed
Results from the trial lead many to believe justice wasn’t served. Defensive attorney John Adams used tactics to create confusion in the minds of the jurors so they could not be certain what actually took place. This proved to be very effective. Adam noted the crowd had been harassing the soldiers and also attacked them. There was no reliable evidence to back this up and it was generally believed, even if Preston was found guilty, he would be pardoned anyway.
Throughout the Freedom Rides, the authorities never really helped the riders. They would begin to protect them and wind up abandoning the group when the whites would come to attack. These attacks wouldn’t be stopped until Attorney General Kennedy sent large amounts of marshals to stop the violence. Kennedy seemed to be one of the only ones who wanted to help protect the riders, so when they were under attack they would call him and ask for his help. He would send federal marshals, who actually at one riot, filled the white mob with tear gas.
These protests were not left to protest peacefully, however, as events like the Boston Massacre occurred at many protests. The British soldiers in the colonies took to violence and even to gunfire to stop the mostly peaceful protests of rights. The colonists took this angrily, and wrote in their grievances, “That they have a right peaceably to assemble, consider of their grievances, and petition the king; and that all prosecutions, prohibitory proclamations, and commitments for the same, are illegal” (U.S. Cong.). Congress, trying to not make the same mistakes as Britain, wrote that all people could protest peacefully without any violent recompense, and that they had the freedom to do so.
. to improve morals through continued spiritual espionage and external discipline was eventually accelerated into an ascetic orgy of condemning nearly every natural desire of 18 man.” (La84org, 2016) Disease was another issue, diseases like yellow fever and smallpox were just some of the couple to name in this era. They effected a lot of people and anyone who got this sickness’s ether died because they were not ‘chosen’ by God. Or they lived because it was not a big illness and they would just natural heal. Citizens would not be aloud to leave there house if they were sick until they died or were fully healed.
