This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
Brabantio implies that women put on an act and pretend to be trustworthy. Even a father thinks women act one way and are not what they seem. Then Brabantio, still enraged about the new marriage, continues to say, “Keep an eye on her, Moor. She lied to me, and she may lie to you”(1.3.5-6). This shows that Brabantio believes that Desdemona will continue to be deceiving.
The morphine is a symbol of corruption by the white world, and because it is a product of the people Niska develops a hate for, that she finds it difficult to fight its effect on Xavier. “I cursed them with everything I had as they receded with no my father into their own world” (TDR, 53). Furthermore, Niska’s stories have an influence on Xavier because its distracts him from the pain, the drugs and the awful memories. “THE STORY AUNTIE TELLS me brings a smile to my lips” (TDR, 250). This is what Xavier needs indeed, to remember who he is because he is in between the world of the whites and the world of the Cree.
Elisabeth the first probably wrote this speech because she knew that some of her men had no faith in her and in their chances at winning against the Spanish armada. The queen tries to abridge a link between her and her troops, and tries to show them that she worth of their trust and will eventually reward them for defending her. thus it can be deducted that if it wasn’t for the Queen’s speech the battle might have turned out to be very different and the Spanish might have win. Therefore Elisabeth was able to use Ethos, Logos, and Pathos to make a well rouded and very convincing speech for her
An American politician Barbara Jordan has once said,“ We,as human beings, must be willing to accept people who are different from ourselves.” Jordan’s word shows people shouldn’t treat the other differently because they are not like you. .Allen the writer of “American Flag Stands for Tolerance” writes about how people had no right to judge what the “other” is doing or thinking of the meaning of our flag.Sometimes we just need to be blind about what the other is doing or thinking. Lynda Barry the author of “Sanctuary” had shown how the society is acting blindly to what thing is happening in the school.Both texts “Sanctuary” and “American Flag Stands for Tolerance” show’s how standing up for what you believe can make you an outsider to society. Through Barry’s text “Sanctuary” it show’s how she stands up for her believe and goes against the society.In the text Barry had used it’s personal diary to make a connection to the society.When Barry says”We were children with the sound turned off ”(Paragraph 10) it show the silence and the loneliness that Barry felt as a child.When she says,”We are told in a thousand ways that not only are public schools not important , but the
A common example of this is political campaigns and speeches that use fear to evoke the desired reaction from their citizens. Donald Trump used a similar campaign where he talked about terrorism in great lengths to be able to show people that he will protect the country. People in return voted for him because they were afraid to put their lives or the lives of their loved ones in danger. However, such campaigns only seem to be toying with people’s emotions and do not guarantee anything in the future, therefore, leading towards a manipulative society. Svendsen believed that such selfish agendas lead to betrayal and an unhappy life because it forces people to deceive one another for the sole purpose of achieving what they want.
Arthur Miller constructs his play upon the famous Salem witch trails. Miller's Crucible was written in the early 1950s. Miller wrote his drama during the brief reign of the American senator Joseph McCarthy whose bitter criticized anti- communism sparkled the need for the United States to be a dramatic anti- communist society during the early tense years of the cold war. By orders from McCarthy himself, committees of the Congress commenced highly controversial investigations against communists in the U.S similar to the alleged Salem witches situation. Convict communists were ordered to confess their crime and name others to avoid the retribution.
Our aggressiveness is a continuous and the most serious threat for civilization. Civilized society tried with no major success to use love for the other, restriction upon sexual life and even violence against criminals to stop our natural aggressiveness. Freud gives here the communists’ example who believe that they found the way to deliver us from our aggressive nature by abolishing private property. Unlike Marx who states that abolition of private property is the solution of any form of human conflict, Freud doesn’t agree, arguing that this doesn’t stop our aggressive nature and that there are other things too which would arouse our aggressiveness since “it forms the basis of every relation of affection and love among people”. It is hard to give up on our
The motivation behind their actions moving forward in the plot are simply to maintain their new founded authority. Since the both of them have just witnessed Lear banishing two of his favorite subjects, Kent and his own daughter Cordelia, they fear that he may take back his throne at the slightest whim; “You see how full of changes his age is; the observation we have made of it hath been little. He always loved our sister most, and with what poor judgement he hath now cast her off appears too grossly” (1.1.84-87). I must note that I cannot justify the actions of these two sisters in their pursuit of power. However, it is still peculiar to me that these two women are vilified so, whereas a man who is aggressive in his search for power might not
She knows her husband isn’t capable of violence and crime to achieve what he wants so she explains that he is to soft-hearted. This quote has to do with the ruthlessness that is needed to obtain status which is revealed through her characterization and her husband 's soliloquy. Macbeth later discovers which she says to her husband “This is the very painting of your fear/This is the air-drawn dagger which you said/Led you to Duncan. O, these flaws and starts/Impostors to true fear, would well become” (3.4.62-69). Here Macbeth reinforces the idea that fear only shows weakness and for this she is angry with her husband.
Government officials knew that citizens were unable to withstand the gruesome photos taken of the realities of the war. Showing real images that featured the outcomes of war would have caused Americans to become disheartened thus decreasing American morale. To insure victory, the government enforced the use of censorship throughout the nation. In one propaganda poster, the caption reads “Let’s Censor Our Conversation About the War” (“Censored”). The propaganda poster revealed the extent of which the government kept a eye and ear to all American citizens as an attempt to preserve American loyalty.
He also recognizes the values of the fear that can cause a society to cower under their government and to allow their government to be allowed free reign. V says in his speech, “Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent." The quote is saying that the citizens in the community are too scared to stand up to the government and the chancellor because of what they have seen the government do to their families or friends. His two main values he displays create a scene and speech that can honestly be considered
The Trials of 1692 were a perfect way for Miller to express his thoughts about the hunt for communists in the U.S. as Americans let fear control them causing fellow neighbors to suspect each other and ignore one another 's civil rights and as stated by History.com “ the Red Scare – is often cited as an example of how unfounded fears can compromise civil liberties”(History.com “Red Scare”) . The attitude of the 50 's also helped to play a vital part in how Miller came to choose to write about the trials as Americans branded communists were as stated by History.com “hounded by law enforcement, alienated from friends and family and fired from their jobs.”(History.com “Red Scare”), Miller lived in a world that was teetering on the edge of fear. His writings about the Salem Witch Trials expressed Martinez 2 just how fear of the unknown can influence and cause people to commit atrocities which can lead to the persecution of innocents. However, it may have been the fear developed inside of those who
Federal judges, especially Judge Irving Kaufman, were generally harsh when ruling against Communists, viewing their crimes as “aggression against free men everywhere” and “worse than murder.” The mixed attitudes towards the threat of communism stretched all the way up to the highest court in the land. In the case of Dennis et al. v. United States, the head of the court at the time, Chief Justice Fred Vinson maintained that in the case of the dangers of communism, it would be extremely foolish for anyone not to “convict unless they found that petitioners intended to overthrow the Government ‘as speedily as circumstances would permit.’” The Chief Justice severely narrowed the interpretation of the Clear and Present Danger Test to point of almost nonexistence in regards to Communists, stating that no attempt to overthrow the government did not mean “that there [wasn’t] a group that was ready to make the attempt.” He expresses the need for the Government to preemptively act against any possible communist attack that could occur. In the same case however, Justice Hugo Black took a very different approach to interpreting the law surrounding the case. Justice Black in his written dissent outlined the crimes that were and were not being committed, and plainly explained that the charges were unconstitutional under the rights given to all American presidents in the First
In a news article published during the Red Scare, the author describes the Communist red flag as symbolizing “defiance of law, order, and constitutional government. It is an insult to the stars and stripes.” It also states, “There is no room in this country for any flag but our own.” (source) The article goes on to say that the federal government must do whatever it takes to eradicate any forms of communism. The author says that perhaps many citizens may be drawn to Communist ideology if the social injustices become more prevalent, and urges the readers to look into the problems of Communist civilizations. This article is an example of how many felt during the Red Scare and Cold War in regards to communism. It shows that people felt a collapse
